Any ideas? (Stomach Pain)

Feb 05, 2018 6:40 AM

So I've had progessively worsening stomach pain for the last 6 weeks or so accompanied with a host of other symptoms. I'm out if ideas and my doctor isn't listening and is just dismissing me over this. So I've come to all of you for help, if any of you can think of an illness, condition or way to reason with them then please tell me.

•5/10 abdominal pain - combination of throbbing and sharp pains
•Fatigue (worse than normal)
•Recently discovered folate deficiency with anaemia - prescribed folic acid
•Headaches (more than normal and different to usual)
•Very firm abdomen
•increased mucus production

Anything you can think of will help.
Thanks everyone

I recommend you see a gastroenterologist for your symptoms. It could be something as simple as a bacterial intestine infection or colon issues. I would push until you get to see someone or go to ER and exaggerate your symptoms so they run tests for you without having to wait weeks for doc appointments. Just a suggestion.
