27yo White Male 6’2 290lb, no known allergies.So I started on the Ketogenic Diet which is very low carb (under 20g/d) 0 sugar diet about 3 weeks ago and 2 weeks into it I developed a lot of stomach cramping. Finding it difficult to continue the Keto diet because of that I quit cold turkey and went back to consuming lots of carbs and sugars. I was very strict during those 2 weeks of dieting
though and consumed lots of fats in things like eggs, bacon, avocados, processed meats, cheese, tuna, etc. After quitting I went on a pretty big binge of carbs/sugars for about 4-5 days where I was definitely consuming more calories per day than needed.During that 4-5 period I experienced frequent urination (10-15 times a day) with no change in my fluid intake. As of 5 days ago that frequent urination has gone down but I’ve started having this pain in the lower left quadrant and sort of in the center naval area. It is not a sharp pain but its constantly there and can feel worse after eating. It almost feels like I always have that empty stomach feeling all the time.I had a urinalysis and blood work done that showed nothing. I also had an ultrasound of the area near my gallbladder which showed no gallstones and a doctor gave me 20mg Dicyclamine which did not help and made me sleepy and light headed. I then saw a Gastroenterologist who prescribed me 40mg Pantoprazole which has helped a little but I still have the constant dull pain. He thought it could potentially be an ulcer. I have an endoscopy scheduled for next week but hoping I can find answers before that as I haven’t been able to take my mind off this.-Malaise
-Loss of appetite
-Occasionally have soreness in upper right side of chest with movement
-Erection does not remain as strong as usual when attempting to masterbate(not sure if this is because of prescriptions?)
-Urinating feels a little different than normal with it taking slightly longer than usual to expel as I stand at toilet but no burning or pain.
-I've also had some anxiety during all this with the constant thinking about it which I imagine doesnt help much.
-NO acid reflux
-NO Vomiting but occasionally feel little nauseous
-NO problems with bowel movements, NO blood or black stool.
