My wife (50) has been ill with nausea, dizziness, stomach pain and severe head pain for six weeks. This problem started with facial swelling - looked like mumps but was not.
The swelling subsided after a week but the abdominal pain did not. She then had a run of Cipro and Flagyl - we were hoping she'd feel better after she was done. Abdominal pain is mostly gone, but she still has the nausea, dizziness and severe head pain
She has had CT scans of her head -- they thought sinus, but no. A CT Scan of her abdomen revealed a 'shadow' or 'density' near the chest, so they're scanning that today.
Ruled Out: (at least as of this writing)
She has been to the ER twice, the Doctor at least seven times and has seen an ENT, a rheumatologist and a GI specialist. No answers yet.
Before this my wife was healthy and active. Exercised every day, slim, eats low fat foods, perfect results on her last physical. She did have her gall bladder removed a few years ago - she has pain if she eats fatty foods unless she takes Zantac 150 in advance. She normally has salads and Smart Ones (frozen diet dinner) for dinner.
Any one have any ideas? This has been ***l for her and an utter mystery so far.
