I am a 31 y/o white male. I have never had any surgeries or serious medical problems. My family has no history of such things except high blood pressure.
Two weeks ago I suddenly had a lot of pressure on my left side, directly across from my belly button. It felt like a bubble pushing outward from inside my stomach. I ignored it for a week but then developed nausea and constipation. I went to the ER and the doctor took blood tests and x-rays. Everything came back great but he informed me that I was really constipated. Which is strange because I had been having bowl movements. He referred me to a GI doctor. I was also prescribed Magnesium Citrate. The Magnesium helped but didn't clear me out.
I made an appointment with the GI doctor and he thought it was Diverticulitis. He scheduled a CT Scan. I was given HalfLytely to help with the constipation. That cleaned me out... I had bowel movements like crazy with lots of diarrhea. The CT Scan came back today normal. It showed nothing out of the ordinary. Now this doctor wants to do a Colonoscopy on me... I am a bit hesitant...
Maybe this is something else? Thoughts?
