stomach swelling

Wow!  Seems like it has been forever since I have posted a journal on here, and even visited the site.  My life has been so topsy-turvy it seems.  I don't even know where to start.  I currently am not taking any meds at all.  Can't stand the thoughts of it.  The side effects were so bad, it seemed as though the Fibro and all the "latch-on" conditions got worse instead of better.  I could not function at all because of the swelling!  There are so many other things that are going on in my body as well and it is so hard to get a proper diagnosis.  I have been diagnosed with so many things that are just not correct!  I know my body!  It is so frustrating when it seems you are not being taken seriously or when they only hear pieces of what you are telling them!  I just don't know anymore!!!  I have gone along with the "wrong" diagnosis' for as long as I care to now.  I have got to get some answers!  I have an awful swelling in my upper stomach which is followed by bouts of extreme shortness of breath.  It will last for about 2 to 3 weeks and then it will go away for a while.  It leaves as fast as it appears!  I have been diagnosed with anxiety, I have been diagnosed with asthma, and then I have also been told that it was nothing.  It is not normal to suffocate!!!  Anyway, I am planning on seeking another physician who hopefully will be able to help me.  WISH ME LUCK!!!
