Hi there,

I'm a 19 y/o Male, 5'10, 70kg, I consider myself to be very healthy, before I got sick, I exercised every day, ate good food, lots of wholemeal and lean steak. Lot's of vegies and fruit.

About 8 weeks ago, I came down with what I describe as a General Feeling of unwellness.

I felt so tired that I couldn't get out of Bed in the morning, I could no longer exercise and work (office job) which i thought was one of the easiest things in the world, became a chore.

I went to the Doctor and had a Blood, Urine and Stool test, and an Ultrasound. Apart from small spots on my Pancreas, everything was fine.

It seems to be improving slightly, but the Fatigue and Nausea are still persistant, along with severe headaches.

I went to the gym for the first time in 6 weeks to do some light Cardiovascular training, and the pain in my abdomin increased ten fold to the point where I had to stop. I have very strong abdominal muscles, and the rest of my body is also quite strong (I was training quite hard before I got sick).

The Irritability was severe at the start but is decreasing and is nowhere near as bad as it used to be.

I went out for my Mum's Birthday last night and her friend who is 55 said lately she had been experiencing the same thing which leads me to believe that other people have experienced what I just did.

Since the Doctor could not diagnose the condition, it worries me that something as bad as what I just had is going around.

Any Ideas?

As I said, it seems to be getting better, but the fact that I used to be able to run 10km in around 40 minutes to now having to stop after 5 minutes of running at a slower pace scares the ***l out of me.

If that's clear, how about checking out celiac websites. Celiac.com is my favorite....abdominal pain and fatigue are two of the symptoms of gluten intolerance. .What's this about a 'small spot' on your pancreas? Learn more about that.....much more......soon.....Good luck and don't give up insisting on a Dx.
