I have been ill for quite some time now,roughly 5 months.
It started with chest pains which then led to upper abdominal discomfort and bloating,weight loss which i think has led to muscle loss in arms,hands,legs,and feet.Am at the point now where i get pains in hands arms legs back and feet.i feel weak,faint and unsteady on standing.
I have had various tests such as a c t scan of my abdomen and chest,ecgs,ultra sound to rule out kidney stones,gall stones etc.mri scan of cervical spine and brain because of the nerve pains in my arms.ive also had a test for addisons disease and numerous blood tests full blood counts etc and everything has come back normal.I am now seeing a gastroenterologsit who has done an endoscopy with biopsies and have been told i have helicobacter pylori and maybe boarderline coeliac disease.i have been on a gluten free diet for 3 months and have also had the triple drugs to clear the h pylori but i don t feel any different and am still unwell.I know there is something wrong because i really wouldnt feel this bad if there wasnt and i am worried doctors are going to find the problem too late.Any clues would be appreciated.thanks
