Symptoms, 8/17/2009

I have had nausea  and bowel problems since I was a kid. Periodic Diarrhea, frequent stools, and nausea,  are just a few of the symptoms I started having. I have also had  periods of time where I will feel spacey, almost high, with vertigo, I went to a neurologist when I was a teen, to see if I was having seizures, he thought it  may be migraines.
I had very heavy periods,  with extreme cramping. I have always had depression problems. In my early 20’s they suspected Bipolar. After my son was born in September of  2002 The nausea got worse. I felt as if my morning sickness never went away.   In 2004 I had an ovarian cyst and while surgery was being preformed to remove the cyst,  they found endometriosis.  

In January of 2008 I had a cyst rupture. Since then the abd pain has gotten worse. Unbearable nausea , with odd bowel movements,  sometimes up to 10 times a day, very soft, small skinny, some times like little pebbles, periodic diarrhea, low grade fevers, we thought it was my uterus and endometriosis. In feb of 2009 The woman’s clinic removed my uterus and cervix. I felt better for a month or 2 . Until my upper right side around my rids was in great pain. I was vomiting with continuing odd bowel movements. They thought  it maybe gallbladder. But the ultra sound  showed nothing. They said it was gastritis. And sent me on my way. Things have not gotten better. I feel this odd feeling of pressure behind my eyes. I can forget what I am saying mid sentence (neurologist in my early 20‘s thought this was migraines). I now have rectal throbbing, gas, abd pain, frequent stools with periodic diarrhea, irritability, depression (intermitted) feeling as if I can not take a deep breath, extreme fatigue (not related to lack of sleep), I feel sluggish, almost weak.
When my stomach acts up I get shaky, dizzy, very out of it. More recently I have had joint pain. My feet, hands, knees, elbows, wrists, ankles, back, shoulders, and neck all hurt. I am still getting low grade fevers. I have a normal body temp of about 97.6-97.8 and get fevers of a bout 99.5 to 100.2.

I have had frequent throat/ear and vaginal bacterial infections (regular sore throats, feeling like the roof of my mouth is raw). I have had about 7 cases of strep/ throat infection in 2-3 years. I have not been around anyone who was sick. I never had strep till a couple years ago. I get yearly to bi yearly ear infections and am prone to vaginal infections.  

I have had blood on the toilet paper when wiping after a bowel movement. I also had my reiki teacher/ counselor comment on their being blood in fecal matter that he saw in an unlashed toilet. I have recently been having a scratchy feeling in my left eye. I have had a hard time wearing my contacts. Also a feeling of pain and pressure behind my eyes.  A small bit of blurring in my left eye.  I am at a loss with these strange chronic symptoms.
