I have been sick for 1 1/2 years. I started with a painful bladder and ulcers(and the ceasing of my menses). Doctors checked for all the female reasons like a UTI. I had a colonoscopy Marc 27th 2009 and since then I have had painful bowels. I also had female pain that turned out to be precancerous ovaries and uterus. I had a complete hysterectomy in March of 2010. That helped some. My bowels started working after hysterectomy and bladder pain got better. In about the last month I have regressed with minor occuring bladder pain, nausea, severe fatigue, brain fog (can't remember a thing), a feeling of always having the flu, and my bowels have stopped working again without a laxative. When they do move the feeling of pain is back and causes nausea. Believe it or not, the doctors were checking a nodule on my lung and caught a glimpse of a hernia on my large intestines. Maybe this will explain the severe pain that feels like my bowels are bulging and skin is tearing. I have been to over 30 doctors since March of 2009 and they are just now finding a hernia on my large intestines??????? Could the hernia cause all the problems I have been experiencing? When I get up and walk around (expecially in the morning) I can be very shakey and my heart pounds when I am up and around. I have twitches and bubbles that rumble around in my body. Is this because I am going through menopause? Mornings are always worse and evening seem to be better if I am not exhausted. I went to a general practitioner and am being referred to my 3rd gastro guy. My digestive system is a mess along with the bladder pain and flu like symptoms. Any ideas where else to go or what to look for? We do live on a farm and am going to get our water retested. It took 4 gynos and a surgeon to catch my ovaries and uterus. I guess it may take a few more gastros to figure out the rest of the story. I also have two diverticuli. My tongue also gets ulcerated right before I have a painful bowel attack and may last a couple of days. My tongue also has a red skinny strip on the left outer 1/4-3/8 inch of my tongue. When I feel better the sore and strip go away. It is the weirdest thing I have ever experienced. If it wasn't happening to me I would say it was impossible. I feel like #@$% and want this over. I have lost almost two years of my life. Some days I feel like I am just trying to keep my head above water. I wonder if going into menopuase did all this or what was the cause. Sound familiar? I would love input.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
