I am a 29 year old woman suffering from a Fibromyalgia. Severe enough to be unable to work. I was diagnosed about 7 yeras ago. Now the mystery: about 3 months ago diarrhea started, followed with severe stomach pain, nausea, and fatigue. I went in for a colonoscopy with a pain level of about 6 and left with a pain level of about 9. I went straight to the ER. They gave me a shot for colon spasms which did nothing and sent we home, the following morning I went to urgent care where a CAT scan was performed and it found no perferations. That was 3 weeks ago and I am still suffering for all the same symptoms and all test return normal. I am losing weight and I have to take perscripton meds for the nausea. I have lost all desire to eat at all. The fatigue is getting worse and it takes all I have to drive my daughter 4 blocks to school walking is out of the question. I have a Rheumatologist for the Fibromyalgia, a neurologist for the Potstural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTs) I forgot to mention that, A PCP, I see atherapist for the depression I think you guess why, A gastro doc because my acid reflux is bad and has gotten worse and now for the nausea and diarrhea, and a one time shot with a kidney specialist because I keep getting bladder infections. These doctors collectively have been trying to diagnose me but have had success. I know I can't be the only one with these symptoms. ANY thoughts I will gladly pass them along.:confused:
