Hi everyone. I am new here and have not been diagnosed yet, but I'm almost positive. My first colonoscopy is in June. I worry because I am so much in the dark. I have been having symptoms of problems for over 2 years. Starting out with just belly aches. then, it turned into being sick with gastroenteritis. I changed my diet because my doctor thought it could be a food allergy, however, I still got sick and my belly got worse. I was always up and down with bowel discomfort. For the last 2 months, I have been having very loose stools with a lot of blood. Also, constipation. Making it very hard to feel comfortable at all. I am 32 years old. Some say I'm too young. I'm not so sure. The gas an bloating is horrible and the pain in my rectum feels a lot like pressure...please someone tell me I'm not being a hypochondriac (sp) or behave the wrong idea. I'm nervous I guess. Don't sugar-coat it for me. Lol I'm a big boy, I can handle the truth. Should I be nervous?
