Patient :Hello. 8 months ago I moved from Italy to the Us. After 4 months I started feeling that my bowel habits drastically changed. I thought it was just something related to my food habits change so I didn't really care about it. Now the situation got worst. I need to defecate more than 3 times a day. The quantity is not that much though. Plus I feel like I can't completely empty the rectum. This is very frustrating. I was reading something on the internet and something like colom cancer came up but I am only 18 so I don't that would be it. But I also read something about being celiac. Should I consider that as a possibility? In the last few days I also had several stomach aches amd cramping, but they usually lasted less than 30 minutes. Thank you.
