So my doctor is almost positive i have a form of colitis. He wants me to have a colonoscopy done after he gets the results back from my stool culter( testing for parasites) if that comes back positive he is going to help me get rid of the worms and what not then he still wants to have a colonoscopy done because he is convinced that i have colitis (since my stools are still very green contain black specks, unabosrbed food, and lately have been coverd with a incrediably large ammount of a white mucuse like substance) but some of my symptoms have gone away

My stomic is hardly ever bugging me now besides when i feel i may need food it starts to do the gurgle thing and what not so i eat something and withen 10 minutes it goes away for over 4 hours. So my stomic pains are pretty much gone (only like random pinchs and what not but not nearly as bad as they where even 2 days ago) could this meen that he is wrong about the colitis or can they unforuntaly just flare up whenever they want to?? my left side is still very tender like to the tuch it hurts, but im hoping this is all caused by bacteria/parasites could it??? or do my symptoms that i have still probably meen colitis. Im really hoping to prove the doctor wrong and only have parasites and maybe gluten sensativity. So the only thing left to work on is more normel looking stools, brain fog, hunger(i never get hungry i just eat when my stomic starts to hurt) and slight nausua. any insite on to what you may think would be appretiatied. I want the truth not stuff thats going to make me calm down if it happens to be bad truth o well i need it. Im just not getting any answers from my doctor and its been a month and so im searching hard to find them.

edit-- also how do they test for gluten sensativity? does he just desided i have it or is there a acuall test

edit-- also the white stuff seems to be more in the morning expeshaly my first of the day so im thinking maybe these are eggs or something but its probably like stomic lining :(

edit-- i forgot to add about the fatigue- its only 2pm and i feel like im ready for bed all the time, gah i have been gluten free for about 3 and a half weeks now when will these things end

I was diagnosed with micropsopic colitis 10 years ago. They did a colonoscopy and found irritation in my colon. The medicine did nothing and made it wose. Now that I am gluten free I feel great. The colonoscopy was very uncomfortable and knowing that I had colotis really helped nothing. Good luck.

Hey Lister, has your doctor mentioned candida at all? Aside from the parasites (which could be causing some of your symptoms, candida could also cause most of those same symptoms. It can also present itself as gluten intolerance. I'm only suggesting this since you had said earlier in the week that you tested negative for celiac. It might be worth while looking into it.

i was just about to post that lol how funny. I just did the quiz from candida free, and i scored fricking 197 it says you pretty much definatly have it as a male if you score over 180 and i did by 17 points maybe even more i let myself go with less points on stuff that i probably should have made 9 instead of 6, i am going to bring this up to my doctor on monday when he calls and see what he thinks, but he is beeing a fricking jerk so i dont even think he will bother listning

(example of doctor beeing a jerk) he is the on call doctor right now so he gets paid to answer phone calls. I called at 7am yesi know this is slightly early so i was not expecting a response for atleast a couple of hours. it hit 11 and still no call so i had him paged again. he called me back and said that he perpsly did not call me back and then he told me never to call him again unless i start compulsavly vomiting or crapping lots of blood. Now i do belive it his JOB to answer calls from patiens when he is on call not to give me crappy answers like that.

but yeah that definatly sounds like me hmmmmmm (is candida a risk to your health or just cause lots of symptoms?) wow i really hope it is candida that would be great to finally feel normal again its been so long i can barly remember what it feels like.

Lister, you doctor is an on call doctor for emergencies, that is what he meant by the blood or vomit statement. From what you have listed here as going on yesterday and today 'emergency' does not really apply. While I am the first to doctor bash, I've had some doozies, this was not out of line. He may have been up all night putting someones intestines back in after an accident or something. It is his job to answer emergencies when he is on call and I'm sure if you have an emergency he will be there for you.

You should teach yourself how to spell.

(I'm a dork. I like reading grammar books and stuff). I mean, if you can learn so much about celiac disease in a short period of time, I think you're capable of learning how to spell. Sorry, that was random and did not answer any of your questions, but I couldn't help it :)

hmm, i just tried the spit test (even though i didn't just wake up) and almost right away there are mucousy strings floating around in the water and its turned cloudy. my symptoms seems to match up more with gluten intolerance than candida though, but maybe i should looks into this.

going to pray and keep my fingers crossed about my test results tomorrow and hope i do have canidia that would be sweeeeet

this is making me feel alot better, it makes me not worry about chrons or uleritive colitis since this all could just be parasites and canidia shouldnt get my hopes up to much or i could get very bumbd if its not

I would bet that it has something to do with your parasitic infection. If I were you, I would eat small amounts every 3-4 hours. That should keep you from getting hunger pains. Also, be sure that you're fulfilling an appropriate caloric intake for your size.

i keep thinking about what if its not parasites what if its not canidia. what if it is chrons or ulceritive i meen i know i sound like a little whinny kid because i know alot of you are already going thru these things or have worse things, its just i never had health problems until this month and i am not getting better, besides for my stomic finaly not growling/poping.

I was 18 when I was diagnosed and they thought I had a form of colitis so they did the colonoscopy. From what I was told they don't usually know what type until they do a biopsy. Hopefully they can figure it out.

:(

everyone done making fun of my spelling? :(

You're just a product of the American educational system. If they taught kids properly on how to read phonetically in public schools, everyone would be able to spell. Programs like microsoft word don't help.

Sorry.....Chelsea is absolutely right. In California, the biggest disaster ever to hit the educational system was the Whole Language approach and "invented spelling" - - - a true horror.

Guess we've gotten off-topic a bit here.... :blink:

to continue off topic, the reson i can not spell is because instead of letting me attend class's i was thrown into lrc programs and into suspensions and into special class's where they just let us play all day- this was all the way thru middle school, once entering highschool i realized how slow they had made me

back onto topic, the more i think about it the less i think i have chrons (its what the doctor thinks i have) i meen i dont even have D i had it for the first 2 1/2 weeks before going gluten free then it changed back and forth between normel and C, and C is not a part of chrons chrons causes chronic D and thats not a problem for me. hmmmm i think my doctor may need to do more reaserch before scaring his pationts
