Re: anyone get dizzy or light headed?
My name is Laura and this is my first time posting. My husband has been sick a year this last Jan. 1st. He has diarrhea every morning. He's had a few dizzy spells, not many in the 13 months he's been sick. He hurts, severely in his lower stomach. It used to hurt him after he would eat something he shouldn't eat. Now it hurts most of the time. He doesn't have to eat or drink anything to start having pain. He has had all kinds of tests run and bloodwork. They can't find anything wrong with him. For a year now they've told him he has acid reflux and a hiatal hernia. But the hernia isn't bad enough for surgery. I don't know what bad enough is, except that he's been sick for over a year. I think that's bad enough. Anyway two weeks ago he got to see a different surgeon. He ordered a colonoscopy and all new bloodwork. He can't get back in to see this surgeon for 6 weeks. The not knowing is about to drive him crazy, he's questioning my devotion to him after 25 3/4 years. He's never questioned anything about our marriage and our life together. I think it's all the stress and the worrying he's had to endure. I've had to also endure, but not nearly as bad as he has. We were in the ER at least 40 times, maybe more this last year. They always ran EKG's, because he has severe chest pains, they always say it's just his hiatal hernia. I don't know what to do. I've run out of ideas, I don't want him to worry for 4 more weeks. He's worried he has cancer or something as bad. I just want to know what is wrong with him, so we can deal with it. At least we'll know what we're dealing with. If anyone has had these problems, please help. He also had a heat stroke last summer. And our two sons were in a serious car accident together, and we thought we were going to lose one of them. Their ok, sorta, but it almost killed us, along with their Dad already being so sick. Help.....
