Waiting for further tests
Hi everyone, I’m a 31 year old male and have been having abdominal pains for roughly 2 years now (used to be worse in the mornings however has now become persistent 24/7). I also started having back pain around the same time, so it was assumed to be related, along with tiredness, fitness dropping (used to run marathons now can’t run a mile), feeling of still needing to poo after pooing, and also pooing much less. I was also having small amounts of blood “spotting” but I put this down to wiping. I have also been suffering with heart burn a lot of the past couple of years. Around the time of these things happening, I also had 2 random days (about 3 weeks apart) where I had a real impending sense of doom that something was wrong and I was terminally ill. This is very unlike me as I’ve never suffered with any form of mental health in the past, and both periods only lasted about 24hours and then I felt fine again. It was very odd.
Anyway, last week I quite a lot of blood on the tissue so went to the doctors and they did a FIT test which has come back positive. I have been referred for a colonoscopy and have a phone call with the specialist booked for the 14th of July.
I haven’t had much bleeding since, but the pain and “odd” feelings has continued/worsened at times.
Not really sure what I’m looking for from this post, but I guess I’m just concerned that something has been going on since my first symptoms and the “impending sense of doom” moment, and it’s only just been pushed forward now due to the bleeding.
