Terrible stomach growling
Hi, I have been dealing with this problem ever since Nov. 2nd, 2010. I remember this day because that is when my stomach started growling all the time. Before that date, I was a normal sophomore in high school, enjoying my classes. Throughout the 2 years and 3 months that has went by, I have done tests for d-xylose intolerance, lactose, glucose, and sucrose intolerance. I have had a four hour small intestine xray, been on 12 different medications, and 18 herbal supplements. I have been testing for gluten and egg allergies (since I was allergic once before,) celiac disease, IBS, and several other related illnesses. I then was diagnosed with depression and anxiety triggered by the stomach growling. I was homebound for school and my grades dropped. I couldnt take the ACT or SAT because I had to leave each of the 4 times I tried do to my insanely loud stomach. I ended up losing all my friends and staying at home. Now, I am a senior and I've applied to test-optional colleges. I have gotten in, but I realize that I will never be able to go to college because I can't be in a room without my stomach growling, gurgling, and rumbling. I went home from school today because the vent was not on in my class (which drowns out the rumbling sound.) I have to eat a nature valley bar in every class to try to keep the grumbling down. I don't think anyone can help because I have went to 17 doctors, 7 specialists, 3 counselors, and 2 physciatrists. They tell me that my mind is playing games. Someone help me!! I went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, a world renowned hospital and they couldnt even help me!
