Symptoms

I am pooping a lot and Unable to gain Weight

  • By debdanish

    Hi All,

    Lately I am feeling depressed and exhausted with these symptoms. It started one and a half year ago.

    Suddenly I started feeling gassy one day and started pooping a lot than usual. I mean pooping twice than what I was eating (really I mean that). I was loosing weight so fast. I lost 12Kg within the next 6 months.

    I have countless number of tests like Endoscopy, Complete Blood test, Liver Function Test, Sugar test, Thyroid Test etc. All normal.

    As of now, I am pooping 3/4 times a Day but it is all normal. Docs are not helping me. They don’t know what is happening with.

    I am feeling totally devastated and don’t know what to do.

    My symptoms are –

    Pooping a lot (but formed stool no diarrhoea at all)
    Feeling gassy occasionally
    Unable to gain weight (height 5.4 and weight 42kg )

    Does anyone here have the same symptoms? Please help me. I will be forever thankful.

    kind regards
    deb

      Hi,

      thanks for the reply. I just go through the list of URLs but the problem is that my symptoms are very unique.

      I feel no pain, no abdominal discomfort, poop is normal in shape. But I am unable to gain weight. If i gain 1kg in three weeks, i immediately lost in the next week.

      AND I am pooping a lot. Like 3/4 times a day. Don’t don’t seem to care.

    Hi DebDanish,

    I think that it might be time to visit a gastroenterologist so that they can run some tests to determine what is happening with you. There are a few possibilities, but the only way to get to the bottom of it, is to run some tests. Keep it posted.

    Hi @debdanish!

    I am sorry to hear about your struggles, and it may be a good idea to get a second opinion from another gastroenterologist if your symptoms persist and you have not yet been given a diagnosis or treatment plan.

    Sometimes it takes a fresh set of eyes to review your test results, or complete them again, in order to get the right treatment.

    Keep us posted, and let us know if there is anything else you need!
