Progressively worsening mystery issue

If anyone can provide some insight that I can take to my doctor. 26 year old male

I have been experiencing an onslaught of symptoms that seem to be slowly worsening lately (past 4 months)
such as: constipation, nausea, lower (usually right side) abdominal pain, exhaustion, irritability, random hot flashes, weight gain (especially in waist region), loss of appetite, feeling generally bloated, thinning hair (may be unrelated)
I eat plenty of fiber, not much meat, and drink mostly water.
I just got a colonoscopy and they found nothing. After drinking the prep and draining my body, the bloating / abdominal pain feeling started up immediately again.
Really starting to think I'm looking in the wrong place for this issue.

Any insight is highly appreciated.

I assume they have checked you for chronic (not acute) inflammation of the appendix?

I mean, I guess they took some blood a month ago but I don't remember any specific mention surrounding appendix
You might call in and ask. Chronic appendix infections aren't the classic doubling-over-in-pain kind of attack, but they can give you a long series of symptoms.
