My wife is a 40 year old female in excellent physical shape. Her only medical history is hypothyroidism two years ago, which was corrected with diet changes and verified with blood tests.
Past three months:
- two episodes each for 3 days solid where stomach felt like it was boiling acid
- constant dizziness when standing/moving
- mild, constant pain in upper abdomen;
- constant nausea
- occasional headache
- pulse is normally at 64, but a few times a day moves up to 100 for no reason
- Saw a doctor twice. Blood work looked perfect. Initial diagnosis was ulcer. Took prescription antacid for 3 weeks. It helped constant nausea somewhat, but nothing else.
Changes in last 5 days:
- pain in upper abdomen moved higher toward heart
- strong nausea; can't eat anything but a few crackers
- extreme fatigue; Spent 3 days in bed, then doc admitted to hospital for monitoring
GI specialist ordered CAT scan and said it's definitely not an ulcer or a GI problem.
After three days in the hospital, we're really hoping for some diagnosis and solution.
