Ok so this is with regards to my boyfriend:
Since September 2008, my boyfriend has continuously had nausea, occasional vomiting, spouts of diarrhoea, weightloss and just generally been feeling unwell. Prior to this we had been on holiday to Cyprus, and he did/does not drink or smoke, eats well and exercised frequently = good health for a 25 year old with no past medical history (other than injuries).
He has been to the GP - who had no idea, so referred him to a Gastro Consultant at the hospital... they have done all sorts of blood tests, and biopsies, CT scans and even an MRI. EVERYTHING comes back clear. We queried coeliacs, IBS, gall stones, allergies... but the doctors are unsure whats wrong.
The cons said we should control the symptoms, he's had anti-emetics, omeprazole, buscopan and other pills... he then suffers from those pills side effects and feels worse.
The consultant first of all said it must be a 'unnamed' bug... 2 months later he went back for a follow up and the cons is now trying to flog it off as IBS. They have only just recently referred him to a dietician.
Lets just say we do not have trust in this consultant.
My BF is considering other routes such as alternative/complimentary therapies... any one had any experiences with kinesiology? (probably spelt it wrong!).
All I want to know is whether any one has had or knows anyone with these symptoms. I will get my BF to have a look and see if I've missed anything out as this has been going on for a long long time and we would love a answer to this problem!
