Hello, my worst symptom is almost constant nausea- ranges from mild to severe, no vomiting, normal bowel movements. I also suffer from mild depression and anxiety (has something to do with the fact i'm ill all the time i think), i'm constantly exhausted and too tired to do anything, i have pre-menstrual symptoms (usually feel a bit flu-like and a lot more nauseous), i have polycystic ovaries (though no other signs of PCOS- i am normal weight), and i apparently have gastritis, thought that diagnosis was made after a gastroscopy 2 years ago and i never got it properly treated, I cannot tolerate the normal estrogen pill, it makes me vomit for hours after taking it- even the low dose ones make me incredibly nauseous. This has all been going on for 3-4 years though is getting worse. I'm not pregnant, never have been. I've had pelvic and abdominal ultrasounds, Ct scan, xray with barium meal, gastroscopy, and i'm having another gastroscopy/ colonoscopy in a few days. Blood tests for gluten intolerance returned negative, no thyroid problems, no STDs or AIDS, normal vitamin levels...
Could it be the gastritis making me so nauseous?
Could I have a hormonal problem?
What on earth could be making a 22 year old woman so ill, that she frequently misses work and social events?
