Please help! Nausea, burning stomach and weakness!
I've been sick on and off for about 3 years now. I have constant nausea and stomach burning, usually right around my belly button area and just above it.
I have either diarreah or constipation. Usually my symptoms get really bad during my menstrual cycle and just after.
Like this month I am just ending my menstrual cycle and I've been hit with a big wave or burning, nausea and weakness.
My lower back has really been hurting lately over the last couple of days. When I stand for longer than a few minutes my back really starts hurting and I feel weak and nauseous.
I am really getting scared. I have an appointment with a new gastroentrologist on October 3 to hopefully diagnose and finally come to a solution and diagnosis to my stomach problems. I also haven't been able to eat solid foods because of very great difficulty swalllowing sollids for the last year to year and a half I'd say. I can't eat hamburgers, bread, pasta, etc, anything solid. Somedays I even have trouble swallowing liquids.
I just want an end to this but over the last couple of days I feel so weak and I had a bad bout of diarreah too that I'm sure contributed.
What can I be eating or drinking to help fight my burning stomach, nausea and weakness? Please help! Does anyone feel this way too?
Any advice please is so greatly appreciated.
