Ok, so I’m 22 years old and I've had stomach problems for as long as I can remember. It's generally nausea but occasionally stomach pain as well. On a regular basis I also experience bloating and gas which is very painful. My bowels are never consistent where as I am either constipated or have diarrhea. The nausea seems to have a mind of its own and sometimes I feel sick after eating, other times I feel sick if I haven’t. I have had two upper GI’s which were normal as well as an endoscopy to check for ciliacs disease. This came up negative as well.


I also have random joint pain periodically, usually in my fingers, but sometimes elbow, shoulder, or jaw as well. Usually it is a knuckle or two; it will hurt for a few weeks, sometimes a few months, and then eventually just go away.


Recently, around March, I began experiencing trouble swallowing which was what made them think ciliacs. I also began feeling sever fatigue and headaches which haven’t gotten better over time, but instead worse. My doctor constantly told me it was anxiety but I know it isn’t. I have recently switched doctors but I have to wait a few weeks for my appointment.


If anyone has any ideas I’m just sick of being the sick one in my group of friends, I’m only 22 and want to live a normal life.

Oh, I’m also a non-drinker

Oh, I’m also a non-drinkerThere are six members of this website who started taking NAET/ Bioset treatment...we have all have some degree of improvement. Some of us have experienced dramatically improvement on life threatening chronic conditions.I recommend you to try NAET or Bioset and/or Acupuncture.There are a few websites that can guide you, one of them is Mercola...don't have to buy anything, just read articles and get your own research on topics.Best,Fruity.

  • I will look into it but my only problem is I live in a very small town and I'm not sure if there will be anyone who offers this in a reasonable driving distance. But again, I will definitely look into it.Thanks!

Oh, I’m also a non-drinker I can only tell you not to give up on a diagnose. Gut problems and arthritis go hand in hand. You definitly have some typoe of inflammatory arthritis going on. The arthritis connected to crohns/UC is typicaly felt in the fingers. More serious types of inflamatory arthritis are usually felt in the tailbone area. You should ask for a feCal test and have your wbc count done as well as youre SED rate to look for any kind of inflammation. Ask to have a test for the gene HLA-B27. It is connected to a spesific type of arthritis that can cause gut problems called Ankylosing Spondilytis You should also know that some people have these symptoms of Ankylosing Spondylitis for years and years before the are either diagnosed with the disease itself or Chrons.

  • Sounds like, maybe the bad bacteria Candida albicans is having a field day in your gastrointestinal tract. How? repeated us of antibiotics, corticosteriods, ulcer medication, bad diet etc. The good intestinal bacteria acidopholus and bifidobacteria which keeps everything in check gets kicked down and candida takes over. Im not saying this is the answer but if you go to your local health food shop and ask for a powder with the two good bacteria in it make sure its refrigerated and if possible in powder form. Worked for me. The powder I used also had bovine colostrum in it.www.fungusfocus.com -cadida summary-cadida info1This web site gives a detailed explanation. I did not suffer from your other systems but I hope it helps with the nausea. Regards

  • Thanks Terry, I may check that out. At the very least it couldnt hurt. I have a theory that maybe my stomache problems may be a seconday problem to my headaches and joint pain. Not entirely sure yet, still trying to process the information I find online. I have a lot of the symptoms for hypothyroidism but it doesnt explain the stomach problems, this may. Wouldn't be too far out to have both cases, especially since I do have a lot of the environmental causes for the bacteria you mentioned. I eat more sugar than I should, Im on oral contraceptives, I've been on Zantac and I have had a lot of urinary tract infections which required antibiotics. Thanks for the suggestion:) vbmenu_register("postmenu_71065", tr

  • Another thing you may want to consider getting checked for is Hashimoto's Encephalopathy, which can produce the fatigue and headaches. For years I had thyroid symptoms (which may explain some of your GI symptoms) but my TSH and other thyroid hormones were always okay.It wasn't until my 8th neurologist checked my thyroid ANTIBODY levels that they discovered my Hashimoto's Encephalopathy. It's treatable with steroids but most doctors have not heard of it and doctors don't check thryoid antibodies unless the hormones are off, so be forewarned.

  • please consider NAET or Bioset therapy as a way to dissolve all of your symptoms. Last year I had a list of over 70 symptoms. I was not only ill but I was dying. no kidding. I went to Bioset therapy and after just my first 3 treatments, my symptoms disappeared by 85%. I have now had 9 sessions total and ALL of my symptoms are gone.I had ALL of yours and many, many more. I am now working full time again after over 1 year and am going to become a BioSET practicioner. I want to help others the way this has helped me. Take care and best wishes....mommy cat www.bioset.net www.naet.com

Oh, I’m also a non-drinkerI have the same symptoms as you and have had them for 13 months now. I'm a 26 year old female and have been getting no where with my GP and Consultants. I was given Omazerprole for ulcer type symptoms and Buscopan for IBS but neither of these helped me. I still feel nausea every day, have heartburn during or after eating and have really bad stomach pains every day. I also regularly get a pulsing pain in one side of my abdomin.Recently I have been getting headaches as well and have had one constantly for 6 days now.I am always exhausted and never want to go out with friends because I'm tired and I don't want to eat out in restaurants etc due to my stomach pains and nausea. This really is ruining my life! I've even begun questioning myself and feeling like maybe this is just in my head and there is nothing wrong with me but then the sickness and pain I feel cannot be just in my head. I'm afraid I don't know what the answer is to be able to help you but at least you know that you are not alone and that I feel the same way too... X

  • Hello, I have exactly, the same issues and I am seeing a consultant tomorrow in relation to CHRONS DISEASE. This would be well worth your GP checking out if you could have this disease. It is very difficult to diagnose as there is no specific tests for it. However, your symptoms sound like they could mean some sort of IBD going on. If you dont mention it to the Doctor they probably wont even think of it. Hope this helps. :o
