Ok. So here's my story...
I've had stomach problems since I was a child (i'm 22 now).
First I'd like to say that YES I have been to my doctor and YES I have had ALOT of tests. Blood tests, Colonoscopy (they said my LG intestine was a little bit inflamed, but they have no explanation why), Stomach scope, Celiac test, Diabetes test, thyroid tests, I could go on......all came back negative.
Doctor says that there's nothing wrong with me, except for the GERD I was diagnosed with years ago, which I take Rabeprazole for.
Well. The Rabeprazole worked great. For a few months. Then all my tummy problems came back. Worse. I felt as if I was going to throw up every time evening rolled around...evening. It's ALWAYS worse in the evening. I then tried aloe vera gel. It worked. For a while. Then all the tummy problems came back. Again.
I thought for sure it was celiac. OO when I eat cheerios they make me sick! I have almost all the symptoms. Joint aches, digestive problems, irregular menstrual cycles (sometimes none for months...) hormone problems...but, nope. test: negative.
So HERE is what my problem is at present. I am underweight (almost 20lbs underweight, I CANT gain weight!!!!) I dread evenings. I know my tummy will feel sick. (although by some fluke sometimes it's perfectly fine!) I always get this 'lump' in my throat and it feels like the puke is gonna come up...and doesn't (thank goodness, since I am very emetophobic
) I tend to burp a lot. I tend to have a lot of gas in my stomach that I CANT burp out. I try and try to burp but it just wont come. Sometimes gavascon will help me, but not always. Sometimes it gets so bad I have to take gravol (and then feel high for hours
During the day I often have this feeling in my abdomen that I have to go to the bathroom. Even after I go, I still feel like I have to go. UGH its SO annoying. I get hypoglycemia symptoms, but the test was negative.
I think my doctor thinks I'm a hypochondriac. She says that I feel sick because I'm underweight. That I need to eat more. I try!! And you know what - this past Christmas I had 4 dinners in a row and I ate a LOT...and get this: LOST WEIGHT! From eating MORE than usual???
I'm getting to the end of my rope. Pardon the pun, but I'm SICK of being SICK!
Please help me.
