I'm looking to see if anyone has any experience of Intussusception. I have been told this is what is causing my stomach issues (Pain in abdomen, large stools, diarrhea and constipation) for the last 6 - 8 weeks. Alongside these symptoms, I have back pain, nausea, weight loss (5-6lb - 160lb) and possible swollen Lymph Nodes (doctors said I'm just skinny and so can feel them easier)

Having done a little research Intussusception is very rare in adults and 95% of the time is caused by a secondary condition. 

If anyone has any experience it would be greatly appreciated.

Brit_in_Canada‍ Hello
Welcome to our site.....Please allow me to say SORRY, as I have not heard of this.  I did google it, so I am now aware, and have learned a bit.
I am sorry for your pain and discomfort.  I would hope and assume, that a specialized Gastro Intestinal Dr will be familiar with this, and can help you.
Your family Dr can refer you...the quicker the better to halt this pain.
Wishing you strength!
