I am new to the site and I am just desperate for some kind of answers! I have been having digestive problems since I was a teenager. About three years ago I started throwing up after I ate. Thought it was the flu but then it never stopped. I had problems with bloating, pain, gas, and constipation before but just chalked it up to IBS. After being put on antacids and an antibiotic (for 2 months) I developed pain in my right side. Had an ultrasound and a HIDA scan and nothing was found. After just getting worse I started seeing a natural health doctor who told me I was having reactions to preservatives, dairy, and sugar. When I first changed my diet I felt a million times better. Now, 2 years later, the pain in my right side has come back full force. it is mostly directly under my ribcage and a constant dull ache with very little relief through out the day. I also frequently experience mucus in my stool, which is only produced every couple days, and usually hurts. lately ive been having a fairly constant dull cramping right below my belly button (not menstrual related). I have been eating very healthy the last month or so. I have cut out white sugar, most gluten and dairy with a few exceptions, and coffee. I recently had a different natural health doctor tell me I am incredibly B12 deficient and Im having reactions to gluten. I also experience joint pains, hedaches (TMJ), and recently mild rashes on my arms and mouth numbness after i eat. I am convinced this is my liver, but dont have an appointment with a new GI until the end of the month. With all my symptoms (and a scary bout of intense burning pain in my liver area the other day that lasted close to a half hour) I'm wondering if I need to go to the ER or just wait it out til my appt. Any advice/ suggestions will greatly help put my mind at ease. I am only 25 and I'm tired of feeling like I'm missing out on life. Thanks!
