Always sick! Help!

I'm 24 years old and have suffered from unexplained symptoms for many years now. At 18 I had my gall bladder removed. About 2 years later I was diagnosed with sphincter of oddi dysfunction. Most recently I have had intense lower abdominal cramping. After visiting my gyno they decided it was possibly endometriosis and they performed a laproscopy. Everything turned out normal from that and nothing was found. When the pain continued I was referred to a gastroenterologist and a colonoscopy was performed. Again, everything was normal. During this time I have also had a lower abdominal ct scan and ultrasound and everything has came out normal. The doctors have diagnosed it as "pelvic pain syndrome" which just doesn't make sense to me. I also have spells of dizziness, sever nausea, shakiness, fatigue, and weakness. This symptoms happen anywhere from once weekly to probably 3-4 times weekly and it's disrupting my life. Please help me out here! This is driving me crazy! To recap, symptoms are:
*lower abdominal cramping
*nausea
*fatigue
*weakness
*shakiness
*overall ill feeling

Again, any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm at the point where I'll try anything.

Re: Always sick! Help!

I suggest allergy testing. I was sick for years (not necessarily your symptoms), and was tested last December - found out that I not only have environmental allergies, but I'm allergic to just about everything I was eating. Corn, wheat, soy, dairy, peanuts, chocolate, and tomatoes to name a few things that immediately come to mind. My diet is very restricted now, but I have only been sick twice this year instead of the constant symptoms I was experiencing.

I hope this helps!
