I joined this forum to see if other people suffer from the same symptoms that I have and what their diagnosis was ... My symptoms are (if I eat anything): severe abdominal pain/swelling, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, stinky bowl movements, excessive flatulance, pooping mucus ... My primary care doctor diagnosed me with "malabsorption" and sent me to a GI specialist who said that I had "chronic pancreatitis" and gave me a prescription for enzymes ... To date I've had an endoscopy (normal), CT scan (normal), abdominal sonagram (pancreas slightly swollen), and numerous blood tests for pancreatitis (all normal) ... I have a new GI doctor who will do a colonoscopy this coming week ... Additionally, I have been having bad pain in my right hip and (finally) got to see an orthopedic specialist last week ... He said that I have a cyst in my hip joint and will eventually have to have a hip replacement when I can no longer tolerate the pain (I was given a shot in the hip to help the pain) ... After doing much research on this website it seems like I might suffer from "Whipple's Disease" ... I can't tolerate the pain anymore and hope that this new doctor can find a cause ... If anyone out there has had similar symptoms and found a viable diagnosis, please post!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
