I have always had this really bad abdominal pain kind of like a stabbing behind my belly button sense I was a little girl and no doctor could figure it out they would just ask if I was moving my bowls okay and I would say yes and all they would do is say I had gas or something but as I got older it would get worse and I'd wake up in the middle of the night sweating and in pain! I don't have bladder infection or any S.T.Ds I've been tested already for those kinds of diseases.
I spent hours in the hospital yesterday trying to convince the doctors that it was serious and I'm tired of having these problems I am now experiencing much worse and her is what I'm going through Abnormal heart rhythm, fast heart beat, server abdominal pain, fatigue, light headiness, skin feels like its burning, dizziness, loss of hunger, and weakness. If anyone knows anything or has an Idea please let me know right away thank you.

  • Have you seen a gastro doctor or cardiologist? Seems you should really consult with both. Have you ever had a colonscopy? Have they checked your gall bladder or appendix? I would seriously see the above 2 specialists. Have you had an ultrasound of your stomach? Hang in there! I will keep checking back to see what you find out!

  • Crohns disease is possible. There are many people that have symptoms from childhood and that are diagnosed as an adult. You should try visiting www.heallingwell.com . They have a great forum and people who are in the same situation as you are. Feel better soon! Kiera

  • If they do all kinds of diagnostic tests & still don't find anything, consider hereditary angioedema (HAE): www.haea.org This is usually accompanied by swelling in some part of the body, but mine is only inside my throat and nothing you would notice. Disclaimer-- I am an HAE patient & have no financial interests in this organization.

  • Check for Celiac Disease. It's an intolerance to Gluten which is found in wheat, barley, oats, etc. I have it, and I always used to feel abdominal pains ever since i was a little girl. The symptoms of Celiac vary but many match the ones that you have. You just have to have a simple blood test, and if it shows up in your blood, then they verify by giving an endoscopy.
