My husband is 40 yrs old and hasn't felt well for a few weeks now. Our doctor isn't finding anything wrong. Here are his symptoms: nausea, not hungery, loose stools (always after eating), lack of energy, and in the upper left quad of his abdomin below his rib cage there's a swollen area. This area seems to "grow" after eating and it pulsates and or grabs. IF there's anyone who can help us or point us in the right direction, we'd be forever grateful!

  • There is a symptom checker in here and also on the www. where u can add many symptoms @ a time to get some ideas or conditions. If your family dr cant figure out what is goin on, he needs to send you to a gastrologist and have more tests done. Has he ever had a endoscopy done where they check for any changes in stomach or bowel? What about medications, does he take anything for these issues? As EvEr Cat

  • He's on hydrochlorothiazide, toprol, simvastatin, liprosil, and alopurinol, but those are for other issues and health conditions. He's been given amoxocillin, and has done the BRAT diet, and imodium. He hasn't visited the gastrologist and hasn't been referred to one either.
