    So sick and tired of all these issues, seriously frustrated !

    .....Please excuse the length of this post, I really did try to shorten it-

    Why am I here? Well, truth be told I'm having some health issues and I have absolutely 0 answers and I'm frustrated. To make a long story short, I went from being pretty healthy to completely I'd say unhealthy in the year 2001 after the birth of my daughter( my 3rd child.) I started getting stomach pain on the left side of my stomach and the pain would radiate in the middle of my shoulder blades. This would last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Later a new symptom emerged and my stomach would hurt unless it was full. This finally stopped. The migraines started after the birth of my 5th child and went out of control. I would go through one of those large bottles of Ibuprofen in about maybe a month. I did go to the Dr and was treated for a sinus infection and had to do two rounds of antibiotics. Still, the headaches continued. The Dr even gave me an MRI and nothing to report.

    This was around the time I started getting heartburn no matter what. My glasses of water started smelling like wet dog to me and almost tasting like bleach. Then my stomach would start burning and before long I was throwing up acid every day. The Doctors then put me on an acid reducer that over time had to get upped to 40 mg a day. I was on this solid until 2015. While the above symptoms were an issue I also started getting a constipation issue.

    I moved to a new state for better health care in 2012 and I don't even want to tell you how bad I always felt. I had a ton of medical stuff going on and actually managed to lose about 60 pounds total and was then finally sent to a GI Specialist where after different treatments, tests and a stomach biopsy I was diagnosed with something called Chronic Class C Gastropathy with Acid Erosion.

    Something happened that changed my life and then my symptoms got better, when I say better I mean went away completely. I was okay until this October when one day I noticed I felt like I had a pill or food stuck in my throat. This feeling would go away if I drank something or even ate. Come November I ate half a sandwich and was full so I tossed the rest. Now I feel full all the time, even from a drink of anything. Sometimes I get hungry but most of the time one meal is my daily limit because I'm full.
    Meanwhile, in the run of it all, I'm having intestinal issues that fluctuate between constipation or the other end of the spectrum. Imagine feeling like someone is squeezing your intestines while trying them in a knot. Now I'm constantly full, or not hungry, and just feel icky. Yes, I've lost more weight and the burn in the stomach has returned. I have an appointment coming up next month but along with all of this my Migraines are also back. Does anyone out there have any clues as to what all of this could be? I'm at a loss and I'm frustrated. My quality of life isn't up to par and between this and my neuropathy I'm getting depressed because I don't feel good. If anyone has any ideas, or experience and can tell me what worked for you I'd be over the moon.

    "Does anyone out there have any clues as to what all of this could be? "

    Yes, your gallbladder. Please talk to your GI specialist about it. Ask for a HIDA scan- demand one. You have all the symptoms I had before I had my Gallbladder removed. Ten days post op I felt like a new woman and none of my symptoms ever came back.

    Good luck!

    Ah ... so I've had one of those and because my gallbladder works at 90% and didn't see anything they refuse to remove it. Of course that was then.

    90% is hyper active and grounds for removal. Normal is 35% to 75%. find another doctor or just take your HIDA scan results to a surgeon and be done with it! You'll be glad!

    Research it. It's called biliary dyskinesia.
