stomach cancer??

im 18 years old and have a 3 year old son, iv ben suffering from chronic stomach ache for about 2 years now.
some times it lasts for days but other days it could only last minutes.
iv had the camera into my stomach but that came back fine, iv had bloods done and they came back fine and iv also had ultrasound scans done and they've come back fine.
I allways loose my appatite for food and my stomach swells and looks like im pregnant some days.
can any one help me please?
my doctor just sends me away with different tablets all the time and im fed up of feeling like this :(
iv also had the implant for 3 years and iv had 2 injections of the depo now im not on any contraceptive.

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Aside GI inflammation/ masses, as ruled out by a scope and USG, other possible causes that may need to be considered include GI spasms/ motility issues, causes related to the gall-bladder, neuro-muscular causes, cardiovascular causes, referred pain from other regions, hormonal/ endocrine issues etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
