So Ihave a laundry list of symptoms and wrong diagnosis or at least I still feel absolutely awful someone please help. Here's my story: I'm 28 years old and male for starters. Ok so I have random stomach pains and malaise and headaches for years now along with generally not feeling well at all. I've had my gall bladder removed two years ago because it was scarred badly. I've also had an irregular heart beat and been hospitalized twice with atrial fibrillation. Then this past September I felt so generally bad I couldn't function any more. I've since had a worse case of the stuff as above as well as numbness in my hands and feet, intermittant diahrea and malabsorption issues, sweating from my hands, feet, and armpits profusely, intolerance to any physical activity, chest pain, difficulty concentrating, joint pain and muscle twitches. Through the myriad of tests I've had so far also I've intermittantly had an abnormal liver enzyme count once, high glucose level once and a something off once with some sort of thyroid test. My doc also diagnosed me in Sept. with Mitral Valve Prolapse and Celiac Disease. The problem is that he based this on a single biopsy of my intestine which showed damage and an antibody test that came back negative for Celiac. I know that you can still have Celiac with a negative antibody test but I have been eating a strict gluten free diet since Sept. and I still feel just as awful. I've been eating only brown rice and beans for two weeks now and still feel awful. He says that perhaps it's psychosomatic but I'm not buying it. Someone please help! It's ruining my life!
