I suddenly started throwing up and having diahreah about 3 weeks ago i think. I can't tell how long 2-4 weeks I feel in a daze. I am tired and weak all the time. I go outside or to the store and everything looks blurry. I started having pain in my ribs and in my chest. Pain and discomfort in one place than somewhere eles. It feels like something trying to crawl right out of me. I feel pins and needles in my head and have the same strange feeling in my head as in my chest. My lungs feel like there is liquid in them. I feel like I could burp constantly. I still get diahreah half the time when I eat but no throwing up anymore. I feel worse everyday. I already have digestion problems. I have gerd and I had my gallblader. I never felt this sick all the time. the gerd doesn't even bother me too much I don't think. For several days I sat there feeling like I am drugged or on a lot of medication which I am not. I went to the hospital and they told me I am having an asthma attack. I have asthma and no I was not having an asthma attack. I was only slightly wheezing. I asked the doctor about everything else and he told me he doesn't know. I have not gotten better. My friend told me yesterday that he read in the newspaper that this Bolthouse carrot juice I had bought and had drank a couple days before I started getting sick was recalled because people had gotten botulism from it. I had drank 2 big bottles of it and had carried it all the way from the store in the 90 something degree whether. It was not refridgerated when I drank it. I went back to the hospital to see if it could have made me sick and the doctor told me no I would not be sick 3 weeks later. They refused to check if I had botulism and told me I must have the flu. they put a catheter in me for no reason I can think of and gave me an iv and sent me home. And gave me a prescription for anaprox. So now I have no idea why I feel so sick. I was so tired and sick and tired of being sick I can not sleep or hardly explain anything to the doctor. I thought I made all of this perfectly clear several times. And they will reply with something like "Oh so you have asthma?" When I never mentioned anything about asthma bothering me. The person at the front desk told me she can't understand me when I talk. I can barely talk but I know she can make out what I am saying whether it is hard for her to understand or not. And the nurse got mad because he tried to put an iv in me and said I have no veins. I have no insurance no primary care doctor. I can only go to the emergency room. Nothing they do makes me feel better. I didn't want to be at the emergency room. My room mate made me go there because he sees me so sick. I don't know what to do. Now this causing me to feel much worse because of the stress on top of it.

  • have you a fixed address? you really need to get registered with a doctor to get your symptoms checked out properly. I know the language barrier must be frustrating but believe me dont take it personally if doctors want to blame symptoms on things you already have i.e. asthma, you need to get second opinion. don't put up with any discrimination either.

  • I believe you will need to do some research on the net about Gut dysbiosis,and/or intestinal yeast infection ,and if you see another doctor I would suggest you se a gastroenterologist because you are probably out of balance with your intestinal flora and that can give you serious symptoms and pain.and lead to heavy complications and other diseases..You may need probiotics (not antibiotics)That would make it worse, but the info will all be there for you on the net if you know how to search.If your insides do not work right, all of you will be out of whack.Doctors do not normally diagnose intestinal Candida Albicans overgrowth as it does not show up in regular blood tests ,urin, etc.But if you have a bacteria they should find out.If you do the proper research you can correct this condition yourself.
