Stomach problems, Weak/Drained, Cant Sleep :(

The last 6-8 months i have been having really bad stomach problems.. excessive gas,belching,pains,chest pains,acid reflux.. the belching is bad and is the gas.. everything feels like its very bad about a month ago i vomitted 1 night very bad and had strained real bad when i did.. i went to the e.r. shortly after i got there i started having bloody stools that were loose(that continued for 2 n half days then stopped).. i was admitted for 4 days and given alot of anti-biotic fluids to clean my system out.. i was released and ever since then its been worse then ever.. i had loose stools for about 2 n half weeks after then it went mushy and skinny like.. its finally startin to get normal now other then a real solid green color in the stool.. i worry alot and am stressing out that there might be something horribly wrong with me.. i dont have insurance and it seems like the hospital and docs just dont care for u as much as they do for a person with insurance.. i got a regular ct scan of my lower abdomen about 2 times and the results were negative.. also a few chest x-rays that were negative.. they told me my blood was fine and all the ekg's that were ran were normal also.. 2 test they didnt run were endoscopy and colonoscopy.. i cant afford to do those now and not having insurance is killing me.. im scared that im drying and i know all these sleepless nights and anxiety is not helping at all.. idk what else to do my stomach has been feeling terrible and im scared that they are missing something thats serious.. i know asking or saying all this isnt gonna solve anything but id like to know what u all think.. im 22 year old male. 5"6 and weigh 160.. i also have impacted wisdom teeth that need to go they are bothering me.. i feel alot of numbness around my legs arms and hands.. feel very weak all the time as it feels like my bloodstream is infected? idk but im going crazy i really feel like im dying and its hard to get help.. im Very weak and have a drained feeling almost everyday.. have cold feet alot when i feel bad and feels like my heart might stop

Re: Stomach problems, Weak/Drained, Cant Sleep :(

First off, are you eating? That can be causing the weakness and the drained feeling. If you aren't eating enough to keep your strength up, then you are going to feel poorly and sickly. You need to be on a diet that doesn't cause you gas or alot of acid. Stick to bland foods-stay away from broccoli, brussel spouts, cauliflower. Did the doctors recommend that you take any OTC med sfor your tummy troubles? Something like Prilosec? Are you taking it?

I don't think that you are seriously ill. I think that you are driving yourself into illness. Worry can make you ill, and your stressing isn't helping your health at all. Let go of the fear of needed a colonoscopy and an endoscope. If the doctors felt you really needed it they would have done one.

Try seeing a counselor to get some help with the stress. That will do more good than anything else....

Re: Stomach problems, Weak/Drained, Cant Sleep :(

hi, thanks for the fast response. didnt think i was gonna get one Anyways, yes i eat good, well i think to my satisfaction. i eat twice a day, around noonish-2pm and around dinner time. i have lost the appetite i use to have though, and that kinda concerns me. i never eat broccoli, brussel spouts or cauliflower. i was on prilosec about 3 months before all this occured and it didnt really help. they did prescribe me protonix when i was discharged, and that hasnt really helped either. i hope that you are right about the worrying part as a few people have told me that. i also think that too, but my body feels otherwise. theres so much goin on and its really hard to get through.

In addition to your diet, you should refrain from eating excessive potatoes and drinking too much carbonated drinks and also try not swallowing the air you breath for it adds the gas to your tummy.
