Hello, I am new to this forum- hopefully I can offer others some advice too rather than waffle on about my own problems but here goes, I'm an interesting mix up if I do say so myself!
I am a 16 (almost 17) year old female with a complicated medical background! I was anorexic from age 13 which formed into bulimia and currently have been bulimic up to this point (trying to stop completely after today's scare) making myself vomit up to 5 times a day on average. Interestingly when I consumed a fairly large amount of food my bowels would empty immediately- resulting in large slippery stools and then followed by an undigested lighter coloured stool; ashamed to admit I did begin to control my bulimic constipation this way... I am 5'5 and currently weigh 7st 12/13 lbs (lowest weight was 7 st 7 lbs). I have had no period for about 2 years or more (worries me to death).
Thursday and Friday I was very tired at school, actually falling sleep in lessons- and on saturday I had quite bad stomach pains for a short period, yesterday I felt fine and was my usual active self- I have horses and do eat at the yard with my hands which could suggest some bacteria getting in.
This morning at 4 am i woke up with a very uneasy stomach, I couldnt put my finger on what was wrong so after much tossing and turning I decided to visit the loo and see if it helped. When I stood up I could taste a foul taste in my mouth and I was belching up foul odours and tastes (bile 'flavour')
I had a large loose stool, then my stomach gurgled so loud it shocked me and I had very very watery violent diarrhoea- this continued and continued until I felt extremely sick and threw up a small amount. Now it is 7:20-pm and i am still experiencing gurgling in my colon and my 'stools' have been reduced to a light brown/yellow watery mush- i am having to go very regular and still have foul tasting burps and gas, i slept for a couple of hours and when i woke i had a huge build up of foul burpy gas and my colon was growling a lot.
Now for FURTHER complications, my 15 year old sister has aggressive ulcerative colitis in which her whole colon is ulcerated , and the fear of this hitting me is off the scale (my mum actually passed out when she saw me) as im meant to be off to uni next year and trying to get in to vet med ! so this would be just awful.
Sorry for the extremely long post i just wanted to fill you in as much as possible about my messed up problems. Any advice will be much appreciated and virtual cookies for who ever got this far!
