Where to turn?
So... Years in pain, have had an MRI, cat scan, most GI tests, including endoscopy and colonoscopy. Biopsies showed negative for pretty much everything. The only thing shown is my stomach is red. Been on 1200 mg of gabapentin 3 times a day, but weening myself off as it helps to a very little, almost nonexistent extent and I don't want it to damage my insides even more.
I was diagnosed with visceral hyperalgesia in the very end, but I imagine that's just because they can't find anything. It's underneath the apex of my rib cage. It's unbearable, like a really bad sickening pain that's just all the time. It hurts to eat food, I get dizzy after eating or from just being in pain, I get more pain from exercising.The pain management specialist I've gone to had finally told me there's nothing else they can do for me.
I live in Washington, but I don't know where to go for now. At the moment, I can barely live. Can't go to college as my mind is too messed up to think properly, and I can't do physical labor because of energy shortage and extreme pain. I'm not sure what I could do, if someone could give me some insight.. or just some names of PM doctors I can trust in Washington, you would be my hero.
