or a month now I have been having trouble with my stomach but for the past 3 days it has been the worst. Every time I wake up my stomach is burning really bad and I feel nauseous. This also happens at night too. I have been using the bathroom more then usual lately and when I use it I'm either constipated or I have diarrhea. Sometimes when I'm using it, it seems like I don't finish all the way and I have to keep doing it a little at a time. Just lately I've noticed that I run out of breath very easily. When this happens I start to get worried and kind of start to panic which I know doesn't help it at all. This causes my heart to beat real fast and get a headache. I will also feel weak about 70% of the time and be real sleepy all day and have no energy. My legs will be the most weak. Everyone that I know thinks the weakness is from anxiety but I don't know. I have also lost 6 pounds since last month. I have been to the doctor 2 times already and they listened to my heart and everything and said it was normal. They have also took blood and said everything was normal. One thing I was wondering is if anything is wrong with your liver or other organs, could they tell something was wrong by testing your blood? I know they tested liver function and everything but I don't know if they could tell just from that. Sometimes these symptoms will go away but they come back within a day or 2. I have been taking Prilosec for 3 weeks now and it helps sometimes but most of the time it doesn't help at all. I'm a 17 year old male and weigh 160 pounds. Does anyone know what this could be? I have an appointment with a Gastro doctor in a month but I would like to know if this is anything serious or not. Thanks
