I'm an 18 year old female and have been struggling with abdominal pain for several years. My symptoms include nausea, upper abdomen pain, heartburn, gas, and bloating. I lead an extremely healthy lifestyle, exercise every day, drink lots of water, don't smoke or drink, and eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. I'm not overweight (5'7", 125 lbs). Upon doctor's suggestions, I've tried cutting out gluten and dairy (for several years) but have not noticed a change. I was also told by a gastro doctor to eat a higher fiber diet but also have not seen a change in how I feel. I'm experiencing fatigue, headaches, and acne too, but don't know if these are related or not.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Like I said, I've been struggling for almost 6 years and no lab test or doctor's visit has given me the answers I'm looking for. I don't want to spend my life depending on Pepto, Gaviscon, and Advil every day! Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!
