I began to feel a sudden twitch/spasm feeling in my stomach, went to ER twice, no solution?

Hello, I’m a 16 yo male. On the evening of November 29th, 2016, I began to feel a sudden twitch/spasm feeling in my stomach before bed. ( after wrestling practice ) The next morning, I started having that feeling again. It would happen almost every 5 minutes. I would feel it in my lower left & right abdomen. When I got home, I called my parents and told them what I was feeling. When we went to the ER, they told me they saw a little constipation in my Ultra sound/X-ray. They prescribed me laxative. A week later, the twitching moved to my upper abdomen. So we went to the ER again because I thought it was serious. ( Keep in mind the twitching feeling hasn’t went away since I first started feeling it. ) They ran some tests on my blood, and told me they didn’t find anything bad. They also said it could be because of a change in my diet since I wrestle, or dehydration. A few weeks later, I’ve noticed some weight loss. I haven’t been working out or anything since 11/29 either. I also added fruit/vegetables in my diet (rarely ate fruits and veggies) also been drinking hot water first thing in the morning. Today is 12/26/16 & I still feel twitching/spasms in my abdomen. Hasn’t been happening almost every 5 minutes unlike what I was feeling 11/29. What do you think is causing this?

– Nausea
– Constipation
– Twitching/Spasm in abdomen
– Weight loss
– Mucus in stool
– Depressed
– Drinking warm water first thing in the morning
– Started eating fruits & vegetables everyday
– No more soda
– stool no longer appears long
– stool is broken into pieces, sometimes mushy.
– Sometimes green

In my opinion you are suffering IBS …
Typical symptoms and it is related to diet and stress..
Your change in diet is great..keep it up..and start yoga and mediation to reduce stress.

In my opinion you have spastic colon due to recent stress
I recommend hyroxyzine (anti histaminic ) 5mg every 12 hours
If it helps then you need stress managment

Any way its nothing to worry about , it usualy stays for max 2 month without treatment

Good Luck

irritable bowel syndrome associated with stress seems to be the root cause.
you have been already making changes in your diet and its a welcome change.
take pre-pro biotic tablets,green leafy veggies and fruits.
avoid junk food.
yoga and meditation can help.

Nothing to be worried about at all

You started wrestling and twitches could happens

You diet became better

U need just to relax

Continue wrestling and enjoy your new sport

Do not be stressed

Its totally benign condition

Try to ignore it
