naseau, vomiting, diarea.......

Hi there,

I am in such need of an answer towards my health right now.
I have sooo many symptoms and so little answers.
I have been sick for over 6 weeks now.
I have gone to my family doctor several times, and keep being turned away without any answer......simply being old that nothing is wrong.

My symptoms are as follows:
-Constant nausea. my somach feels like I am car sick all the time.

- vomiting.  when I am sick (at least 4 times a day) my stomach pukes any bit of food I put into my stomach (THAT IS ONLY IF I HAVE AN APPETITE TO EAT) In the morning, my stomach is empty I end up puking what looks like a yellow/orange even sometimes green looking fluid....and ALOT of it. but it doesn go away. there is no burning in my throat. Just constant gagging to the point where i cry.

-diarea. I dont digest my food very well. My bowel movements are quite dark, not healthy looking. Also, very liquidy. And i have to use the bathroom several times a day. and extreme odour. when its not liquidy, its just "full".......there is no "s" shape or solid look to it.

-lack of energy. I can sleep for hours and hours and still feel tired. I find it hard to motivate myself to do anything. I am weak. Shaky. I can sleep for 9 hours, wake up, feel sick, and lie back down again for 5 hours......

I am tired of trying to tell people how sick I feel and them not understand.
This is affecting EVERYTHING in my life.
I recently had an UPPER G.I done. The results came back fine. Stomach, Duodenom, and Esophagus are fine. Small bit of peptic acid. However, this is not going away..................I am still sick sick sick sick!!!

Please help.
I hope I gave enough detail.
Let me know if there is any suggestions.

Hi J.M.:

I'm so sorry you are suffering.  The symptoms you are describing could be any number of things.  If your doctor hasn't referred you to a Gastroenterologist, I would ask them outright to do so.  Otherwise, I would see another doctor or go to the Emergency Room if it gets too difficult to handle.  

Hang in there!  All the best,

Sam

Thank you!
I feel like I need to see another doctor.
I will keep you posted on what happens next.
Its another day of sickness, and I am suffering pretty bad.
Once again, all I am told is that its in my head.

Most of us with this illness spectrum either question ourselves or are told at one point or another that it is in our heads or it is IBS.  For whatever reason, it seems harder for doctors to admit that they honestly don't know what's going on than it is to blame the patient or use a catch-all diagnosis like IBS.  It's also possible that IBS goes hand-in-hand with Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction, Pancreatitis, Small Bowel Bacterial Overgrowth, or the other dozens of possible diagnoses that plague us.

Hang in there!  It's not in your head!  I absolutely believe you!

All the best,

Sam
