Hi everyone. I am a 17 year old male with a few symptoms that are currently worrying me. Alright, for the past few months (and possibly before, I honestly can't remember...) I have noticed that I have had somewhat loose stool. It is not that it is watery, but it is not as solid as I feel it is supposed to be. Also, it is a pale brown color which is starting to worry me. Tonight, when i used the restroom, I noticed that there were dark red spots in my stool (which certainly worries me...). The other symptom that should be mentioned as far as my stool is concerned is that I have small bowel movements every 3-4 days on average.
The other thing that is unrelated is that I have been feeling very tired lately, which may have nothing to do with it. I should mention that I have been VERY bad about my eating habits over the past few months. I do not know if this is the cause or even if they started at the same time. It could be possible that I am simply eating too little and am feeling tired as a result. Now, I know that the typical answer is go see a doctor, and I am planning on doing that. I have an appointment at the beginning of February. What I am looking for is what y'all think this is. Am I looking at most likely having Cancer or could it be something else? If it could be something else, what would it be?
Again, PLEASE let me know soon! I am getting worried and need some peace of mind! :'(
Are you telling that you have only loose stools (no normal once in between) every 3 or 4 day?
What's your diet like?
Do you feel some kind of abdominal pain?
Have you noticed a blood on your toilet tissue?
Um... I would say that most likely yes, I do always have loose stool about every 3-4 days. There are a few exceptions, however. Um, I think that I have had solid stool recently, but am not sure.
About my diet... I take aderol and it makes me lose my appetite. During the school week, I am very likely to eat a biscuit for breakfast (but most times I end up skipping breakfast), then I skip lunch, then I eat like a plate of sushi for dinner, and finally, I eat maybe a bag of chips when I get home or something. I know... very unhealthy... I am trying to change that now.
I occasionally have abdominal pain, but I think its normal. Nothing all too frequent. Maybe once a week? The pain is always usually mild and I'm assuming its just a gas type thing. Very rarely I will have my stomach acting up, and when I push down on it, it hurts. Is that something to worry about?
Finally, the blood issue. For the most part, no. I did recently have a tiny bit of blood on the tissue paper, but that was a one time thing. Hasn't happened since...
One of the body's responses to poor nutrition is to conserve energy. The brain gets a biochemical message to reduce activity, and attempts to expend energy can cause increased weakness and fatigue.
There is a chance that you have developed anemia due to poor diet, resulting in feeling of tiredness.
Also, feeling too tired can be a side effect of using Adderall.
Are you experiencing headaches and dizziness?
Are you restless and agitated?
Do you find yourself very moody?
