I have been having chronic abdominal pain for the past 2 years. I have been to many different doctors (OBGYN, gastro, internist) and no one can figure it out. It hurt so bad one time that they took out my appendix (which wasn't causing the pain). When they took out the appendix they found blood in my abdomen that they said probably came from a cyst on my ovary that had ruptured. When the pain came back after the surgery I went to the OB and had an internal sonogram and she said that I didn't have any cysts.
Right now..today.. there is a sharp pain while I am sitting here. If I touch it or bend in a way that pinches my abdomen...it is so sharp a pain that it takes my breath away.
I go diarrhea everyday...usually about 3 times a day. It used to be about 8 times a day.
If I eat any wheat, grain product I cough/gag after I eat it...to the point where sometimes I have thrown up. It doesn't matter if I have 2 bites or a whole meal....I feel so full and feel like it is in my throat. I have to go to the bathroom within 20 min. of eating...everytime. That is when I have most of my diarrhea.
Through all of this I have had regular periods, but to date my last period was sept. 2nd. I am a 25 yr. old virgin who works as a youth director at a church, so there is no way I am pregnant.
I had many tests run and they discovered my gallbladder functions at 6%, but I don't have pain up there and there were no gallstones. I asked them not to remove it, so they didn't but didn't really do anything else to help. They also said my pancreas didn't look good.
I went to a natural food store and spoke to a "doctor" there. I did some tests and they said I had candida. I gave up eating yeast products for a long time, but the pain never went away. I don't eat them really at all now.
If anyone has some insight....I would greatly appreciate it.
Let me also add that I have a very high stress job and family life. I am actually quitting my job, due to the stress.
