Hey need help desperately,

Everything began in late febuary 2013, I started to feel exausted even after full nights sleep, started to feel that somehow food is not attractive for me anymore. There were abdominal bloating, pain, lower back pain and etc. I have been consulting with hematologists, infectionists, gastroenterologists they cannot find anything. I had Ultrasound, Pelvis and Abdominal MRT with contrast, tested for HEP C, B, A, Syphillis, Epstein Bar, HIV. Nothing. But more and more I feel worse. I am having bouts of diarhea, abdominal bloating, weakness. Liver enzymes constantly Elevated ALT 103 AST 60 GGT 83 ( they tell its fatty liver) I gained 25kg in 6 months. I feel worse and worse. Now constantly my head hurts, I am having severe hypertension 160/100 medicine does not help, and I am only 23 years old male. Also my skin is red and it hurts. Often I feel hot and I am sweating a lot, even if it should be cold. And I am having daily nausea. And still no one can find diagnosis for me ! My C-Reactive Protein is 6 (it shows something is really wrong in my body) CBC is normal. Any suggestions? Cannot live with it anymore, it seems I having non stop flu every day.

P.S no enlarged lymph nodes.

HELP! Cannot sleep, Cannot work, Cannot live normal life.

  • I am so sorry to read your symptoms, but Do Not give up. I was so sick and getting worse day by day when I finally got a diagnosis. I was ready to jump off a bridge but my husband was determined to find a Doctor that could figure out my symptoms. I found out I was horribly allergic to all Fish, Fowl, Sweet Potatoes and a few other items. I also had Auto-Immune Hepatitis. I spent 3 to 5 days every other month in the hospital had at least 20 Colon scopes before I finally got diagdiagnosed.

  • Sounds like you are going to a CKD have your kidney function tested.
