Im 24. i started losing weight back in nov or Dec.. i lost all together 20lb i was 109 in aug of last year i'm currently around 91lb.. during this time i also started having stomach problems that was diagnosised in early march as Gastroparesis (i'm not a diabetic). i feel lightheaded most of the day. this tends to effect my vision, but i can't explain how things look differant, they just do. my eyes feel very strained and tired, even when i get good sleep at night. i have little energy or desire to do anything i used to enjoy. i also, within the last month, started having headaches that come and go thoughout the day. i occationally have night sweats and hot flashes. I'm starting to feel very overwhelmed and frustrated by this. i have been to a number of differant types of Dr. that have examined me and all my blood work is normal. the last Dr. i saw started me in phyical theapy for my headaches. i have been eating well 3 full meals a day and drinking 3-5 ensures a day for a month now. i have not gained weight nor do i feel better. i'm not sure what to do or where to go from here since my blood work and everything is coming back normal. does anyone have any ideas?

Ps i have had some anxiety with all this.. they did do an MRI in jan of this year it was normal!

  • Have they checked you for Celiac disease?? You have some very classic symptoms of it. It causes you to become malnourished because your intestines are not absorbing anything you eat or drink. Please look into it and request a full celiac panel ASAP. Look up all the tests they need to do and then make sure they do them all.Good luck!
