My situation is pretty strange.. Last year for my 28th bday I drank WAY too much, and believe I suffered from alcohol poisoning. I was sick, but didn't go to the hospital. I had what I believed was a 5 day-ish hangover, and then started to feel better. About a week or so later, I was at work and had unbearable pains in my abdomen which i assumed were gas pains. I left work because i was uncomfortable, and once I got home I had a large bowel movement. Wouldn't call it diarrhea, but also wouldn't say it was normal. Following this incident, I felt off for weeks. In the week or so following this, I would wake up in the middle of the night with bad nausea, but never got sick. I was prescribed promethazine for the nausea, which helped. but i was still waking up with it for a couple days straight. I also noticed that i was getting a canker sore in my mouth, with a nasty taste which i assumed was acid coming up while i slept. I was also taking protonix twice a day at the time. i had an upper edoscopy then, and with my recent episode (a month ago) I had a colonoscopy to rule out crohns. My doc says i def. dont have that. Have had all blood tests come back normal. The most recent episode is still hanging around. I had trouble eating anything, without feeling yucky after. So I hardly ate, lost 10 lbs in a week. having pains in region with liver/gallbladder. But had a recent CT scan that didnt show any problems with either. I was diagnosed with fatty liver in Nov 09, but doc says that will not cause symptoms, and/or the pain I am experiencing. Doc is completely convinced its my IBS and acid reflux acting up to my bad diet. And I know I needed to change my diet, but I still believe something else inside must be reacting to what i'm eating to cause these symptoms. I call them episodes, because the symptoms hit suddenly, always feel worst before and after bowel movement. Then following this 2 week episode recently, I now feel like I am still "recovering" from the episode and am afraid to eat anything fatty. Not that I wanna jump back into a bad diet, but occassionally, you go out and cheat. So I am at a loss, I've had all the tests and no diagnosis. Doc thinks I am a hypochondriac, that I am trying to find something wrong with me when nothing is there. But I think its very strange that these episodes started following my birthday and incident of over drinking. Maybe it was coincidence that it started then, who knows. But I still feel something is wrong.. Anyone else have similar symptoms???
