Im at a bit of a loose end here, need to find out what may be the problem with me as the doctors keep misdiagnosing my problems.
It all started 3months ago just after id eaten a chinese meal, a few hours later i started feeling a pain in my appendix area, like a spasming pain. Which ended me up in a+e the next morning as i woke up in agony! i had abdominal cramps. A+e were useless and sent me home with painkillers.
Its happened a few times now, where ive ended up in a+e, and everytime it seems to be after a chinese meal. The last two times, ive woke up with extremely painful spasms in my stomach/bowel/intestine area. After the spasms are over i have very bad cramp in the same area which is so bad that the 1st day i cant even get dressed, getting out of bed was a 20minute job. It seems to me that i have gained an intolerance to the flavour enhancers (msgs) that are put in the chinese food?
But since the 1st episode 3months ago ive had a dull ache in the appendix area, which has never gone away, its this pain, in this area(and spreads) that gets really bad everytime i eat something like a chinese meal. Its not appendix realated. I think its more to do with my large intestine, bowel.
Does any one have any idea's what this could be? Im getting a bit worried now as its dragging on, and if its something serious 3months is a long time :(
The doctors havent been much help, everytime ive been to a+e ive been sent home with painkillers. And the doctors have only just started listening to me (and whats actually causing it) today, so its going to be another 2weeks before i get an appointment with the specialist, bloody UK nhs that is for you
