Hi. I turn 20 years old on March 11th, and I've already had to quit my job due to medical issues.
It started about 7 months ago with what seemed like a bladder infection. Suddenly, I suffered dizziness, vomiting, excruciating abdominal pain, and nausea. I was sent to the ER, to no avail. My symptoms have been getting progressively worse - headaches, seizures, diarrhea, I've stopped digesting food, weight loss of about 10 lbs., the nausea and vomiting have become chronic, episodic appetite loss, weakness, fatigue, severe anemia, erratic and heavy menstrual cycles, bleeding gums and occasional mouth sores, swollen and tender glands, increased urination.
I've had an upper endoscopy which showed nothing, blood tests show only my anemia. My doctor thinks I have pancreas and gallbladder problems, but the blood test for my pancreas was normal, and I'm worried my HIDA scan for my gallbladder will be, too.
I'm just experiencing symptoms all over the board, and they continue to get worse. Any advice? Anyone been there? I'm ready to give up...I'm only 20 years old and already require 15 per day. :(:confused:
