Most of your symptoms seem to be non-GI related. The loose stools and mucous are closely associated with IBS, but I haven't heard of dizziness, brain fog, weakness, etc. being associated with it. You might get another CBC to check on the status of your WBC. Your blood pressure is slightly low, but it can fluctuate 10-20 points over the course of a day and so you should be checking that at different points to see what the average is.
Without insurance, it would be difficult to go through a bunch of expensive tests that might reveal the cause. How debilitating are these symptoms?
In answer to your question, the symptoms I get when i get a rectal ulcer are
Pain, pressure and burning in rectum
Mucus with or without stool
blood in mucus but not alwys
I never get any stomach pain - only usual cramping
Hi rachelstar, I just had an ANA done and it was normal but I was also checked for lyme antigens and that came back borderline so my Dr. is sending it off to get a western blot. So... Im in waiting right now.
canyonbabe- I will ask about the echo because the palpitations is one of the scariest symptoms. Yesterday after my bath I was super lightheaded and my husband could see my heat beating in my neck.
Well, you get the idea. What you're going through probably is part of one over-riding illness like mine. I have Fibro, IBS, hypthyroidism, IBS, RLS, atypical migraines, sleep apnea, hangnails, chapped lips and even fallen arches!!!!
