I'm a 21 year old female. I became really sick 2 years ago with really bad dizziness, nausea and weakness. I was extremely sick for 2 1/2 months, then started to get some better. Two years later, I'm still not well. I get "sick spells" where my blood pressure gets really low, I'm very weak, and I have really bad nausea and GI symptoms. The right side of my abdomen is sore, feels swollen, gurgles a lot, and makes me burp constantly and feel like throwing up. The GI symptoms are bad on a regular basis, but worse during a "sick spell". My doctor is assuming it's IBS since no serious inflammation was found. My salivary glands are swollen almost all of the time and my fingernails turn purple a lot. I've had a ton of tests and the only positive ones were the ENG (my right inner ear is functioning 37% less than my left) and elevated liver levels once. I've had the following tests, all of which were negative: upper GI; colonoscopy/endoscopy; abdominal ultrasound; Holter monitor; small bowel x-ray; chest x-ray; blood tests for Lupus, Mono, Epstein-Barr, Celiac, diabetes, Sjogren's; EMG on legs; CT scan of head; MRI of head and inner ear canal. The symptoms are so bad that they keep me from living much of a life. If anyone has anything like this or has any advice, I'd be really grateful.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
