I know that turning to an internet message board isn't the best way to get a medical opinion, but I'm at my wits end. Any help that I can get would be very much appreciated!
I'm a 20-year-old female that originally presented with on and off abdominal pain for two to three years, and extremely frequent illness (moderate infection once or twice a month, bronchitis a few times a year, etc). It finally got so bad a few months ago that I ended up in the emergency room. The ER found I had gallstones (big ones, gallbladder was close to rupture), and I had my gallbladder removed.
However, the gallbladder surgery hasn't really helped to alleviate the pain. I finally got to the doctor's a month ago with abdominal pain, bloating, frequently loose stools, and excessive fatigue. The doctor thought Crohn's and ordered a colonoscopy, but it came up clean.
Blood tests taken revealed elevated liver enzymes (ALT and AST), about 3 times the upper limit, anemia, and a high a percentage of lymphocytes, about 60%.
Next diagnosis was Celiac's, but blood tests for that also turned up negative.
I really need to get this pinpointed, so any help I can get is great. I'm taking 18 hours this semester and work 30 a week, so I need to be healthy again...
