Hi Everyone, Please let me know what you think of my symptoms.
It started out as bloating a couple months ago. Then I got diarrhea off and on. For the past 3 weeks or so, I have been weak and fatigued off and on, low grade fever, somewhat constipated, more loose bowel movements, dull rectal pain, shooting rectal pain, abdominal pain(lower and seems to move around), loss of appetite, stool changes in consistency often. Up to 10 bowel movements each day.
I should also mention that I was almost certain I have candida albicans, an abnormal amount in my digestive tract, so I went on the anti candida diet. This decreased bloating a few days but, these symptoms lead me to believe it is just my body's detox reaction. I ended up in the ER two days ago, and I told them Everything, and they did some bloodwork and an x ray, found nothing. I have an appointment with the gi doc's pa on Thursday and dropped off my stool sample this afternoon.
I am confused and scared about my symptoms. Please give me some feedback!!!
Thanks for reading.

I think you should see a gastroenterologist. An x-ray and blood work is not going to show anything for a GI problem. That is just ER proceedure for everyone. Hopefully the stool sample will show something and they will be able to correct it. You may have picked up a bacterial infection. Sounds like you are headed in the right direction for help.
