Hi, I have a friend who has been ill for at least 2 1/2 years with no diagnosis. She has extreme nausea every day. She also has diarrea and feels weak. She has seen a gastro doc and he said he has run every test and they were all negative. She feels she cant go on. Maybe someone can help?

  • Here are a couple of suggestion: IBS and thyroid...I had an overactive thyroid and it was in my case called Graves disease....it gave me lots of digestive problems and it took the doctors a while to figre this out...actually a simple blood test of TSH, FT4 and FT3 and the antibodies for Graves was all I needed....just a thought.
