Hi. I am 18 years old and have pretty much been sick on and off since June 2009 (17 at the time) I was hospilized because I had a kidney infection, elevated liver enzymes, lesions on my kidney, an enlarged spleen, and a UTI. I was there for 5 days and then released. I was better until July when the kidney infection and the UTI came back, and I also developed Pnemonia. I was hospilized for a day and then released with meds. Got better then in August the kidney infection and UTI came back. In October I was diagnosed with a gall baldder infection and had it surgically removed. After the surgery I had the normal amount of pain and then recovered. Then mid Febuary 2010 I started having abdominal pain on my right side, dizziness, vomiting, nausea, and fatigue.

It is May now and I am still suffering from these symptoms. The doctors have done CT scans, Barium CT, CT with dye, Swallow test, head CT, blood work, urine tests galore, ultrasounds and an entroscopy. Everything has come back clean. The only abnormality is that I have low blood pressure. I went and saw a natural doctor (becuase my assigned doctor pretty much gave up on my case) and he said that my adrenal gland was damaged. I have researched online and cant come up with any answers. If anyone has any ideas on how to help me I would be extremely grateful!!!!

  • Make sure you are aware of the symptoms of carcinoid syndrome. i'm not saying you have it. I'm just saying it sounds similar to my symptoms. It took me many years to get the diagnosis of carcinoid cancer and carcinoid syndrome. It's a rare cancer and many doctors have never heard of it.Tests: CgA and 5-HIAA 24 hr urine test are the 2 easiest to do.Best wishes!
