Here is my story and I dont know what to do:

6 weeks ago I had to go to hospital with stomach pain in my upper abdomal. They gave me Nexium 40mg and sent me home! All was good for the next days I took Nexium and was OK. I saw my GP he tested for HP and blood(not for gluten I belive) and ultrasound, all normal! He told me to take Nexium for 3 month and eat plain food like breads and stuff (I mostly did eat salads and fruit before and youghurt, only had cerial and 1 toast per day in average), I went to 3 toast a day and stayed wth cerial in the morning, mostly eat spagetti at night. Gosh I got constipatet like crazy and was feeling worse, sick sick sick every day, I went back, he put me on Movicol and Somac 40mg, I am still sick sick sick even though I go to the toilet normal. The only change is that I now feel very weak aswell. Cant take more meds! He said its GORD and IBS. I am seeing the specialist soon!

I always had constipation issues since I am 14 (10years) and it goes from that to direoha sometimes. I always had a bit of gas and lots of bloating. I always had daily nausea for a few days and then nothing for a few month. Doctors tested lactose when I was 19, negative, they said its stress. I am on Iberogast at least 1-2 times a week. It all improved after moving to australia eating mostly fruit and veg in summer. This winter I got a slam in the face with the heartburn and pain. And now being on that plain diet or the meds, i dont know, but i feel nausea daily, mostly after or before dinner.

My mum is allergic against wheat, rye and malt, no one ever tested her on gluten. She did cut out all those products and feels better, but not fine.

I do also have a blocked nose daily since i am 14. Dry mouth during the day daily, eczma, dermatitis, acne (bad at the moment), breathing problems now and then, dry eyes, yeast infections a lot, nausea, bloating, constipation, gas, migranes, headaches, dizzy spells, concentration problems, mood swings, mild depression and mild anxiety (sometimes with no reason)...

I cant live like that, I want that sorted. What to do? Could it be Gluten Intolerance? Any expieriences? Does that sound familiar? I am out of options I feel.
