Hello guys, I'm new to this forum, and I have been checking back to this forum for about 1 1/2 before signing up.
Anyway, to my question/issue. Since February 23, 2009 I've been suffering from constant nausea 24/7. It does not go away not even for a minute. This whole thing started when I woke up one winter morning so early like 5am with overwhelming severe nausea, dry heaving, super high fever, and extreme muscle pain and unable to move, because a) I was too ***n dizzy, and b) my body was super weak. Basically its everything like the flu, and I thought it was. So from there, my mom had to help me dress up, call a cab, and hit a walk-in clinic, and literally make the cab driver rush there. The doctor there did every common examination; stool samples, urine samples, blood tests, and a thorough physical exam. The doctor assumed it was a kidney infection and prescribed Sulfatrim DS 160mg tabs. Fever subsided in 2 days, but the nausea increased. I called the clinic for my results, and they tell me they don't know what I'm talking about. Later, I found out that they lost all my samples. So I never found out what was wrong with me in the first place.
Since that day, I've ended up at the E.R. for several times for tremors, dehydration, rapid heart beat, crazy anxiety attacks, and for vomiting blood. So far I got an endoscopy done with two tissue samples. They tested for celiac, which came out negative. They checked for ulcers, negative. I had multiple ultrasounds, all appears fine. I had some x-rays done, everything looks fine as well. I had a 3 day stool culture test, everything is negative. The only thing right now missing is a colonoscopy or cat scan. Although I don't like the idea of a cat scan 'cause of the extreme radiation.
I really don't know what else to do, where else to go. I've been to the E.R. so many times, and every doctor there says there is nothing wrong me, and that I have to live with it. I have even visited a psychiatrist, got prescribed novo-mirtazapine od, 15mg. A few sessions withe psychiatrist helped, but he too believe that it is not my head, and that I do have a physical problem.
I can barely eat anything and by nature I'm a thin person, and have a quick metabolism. My average weight was 110lbs (24 year old female), but I lost so much weight, and currently stand on 85lbs. I'm losing weight fast, and nothing is working, and no one is really helping me. Like I said before, I don't know what to do anymore. I even thought of suicide many times. I really want to get back on my feet before I actually do harm myself. Any suggestions?
