32 male good shape. 5-10 170lb.

First off, I've been to every doctor under the sun.

I have had stomach pain for a long time. Swelling like I'm pregnant at times. Then I developed awake seizures where my whole body would shake. Now pain in chest and numbness in arm. I think I have a rib out of place that may be pinching a nerve and causing all of this. Chiro has helped but not cured it. I've had head mri, stomach ct scan, and all the tests for gallbladder disease. Heart tests etc...They say all is normal. Yet my gallbladder jumps around at times and I have to eat very clean simple foods. Can a nerve problem cause stomach issues too? I have a neuro doc appt. next week. Muscle relaxers actually help with the pain and numbness in my chest and arm. Sometimes I feel like I have a hole in my stomach and a gunshot in my chest. I an so sick of this. Plus the room is jumping around like I'm on an airplane.

  • How long have you been having these symptoms? Yes, nerves can cause a stomach disorder, but more likely I would suggest looking into food intolerance issues - the best treatment for this would be NAET (Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique) - in my opinion. This treatment has helped me immensely. They should have done a complete blood workup and checked your potassium levels - if they are even slightly elevated this may cause you problems, and is very dangerous if highly elevated - just rule this out with a simple blood test. When you say the room is jumping around - is that a constant sensation or does it come and go? How often are your seizures, and when did they start? Lastly, are you taking any medications currently? Have you taken any antibiotics in the past year and if so which ones?DOM

  • I had the stomach swelling since november. Gotten better since I went to a bland diet. No antibiotics ever. When I say the room is jumping around I mean from time to time. Especially when walking up stairs etc.... But its not all day. The chiropractor is still the only one who has helped but I still have a pain in my left chest. Thanks so much.

  • My 2 cents worth . It maybe toothpaste . Try tea tree oil tooth paste . for about a month , then start takeing Vitiman D for month . It may lessen sytoms . If you don't have teeth then just take Vitimand D use baking soda with water for a mouth rinse . Hope this helps !!!!!!!!! NOthing for the room jumping .

  • i have had the same things you had with cronic fatigue and a few others. i had the blood test ct scan ultra sound and i am about to see a nerve speciaist. the gastroenterologist said my nerves are messed up. if you try to flex your stomach mussles then push on them and it gets worse it most likely a nerve issue
