Within the last year I have had a grand-mal seizure (new onset), lost almost 30 pounds despite until recently a very good appetite, a small monoclonal protein spike in the gamma region was found with less than 3% plasma cells on bone marrow biopsy. I have moderate to severe pain in the right upper quadrant which radiates to the back. An enlarged liver was discovered during MRI but apparently working fine. Blood tests for liver function have come back normal. A possible early bone lesion was found on metastatic bone survey which will be rechecked in a year; and an EMG type test revealed mild to moderate poly neuropathy. A dietician has reviewed my caloric intake and is satisfied with the amount I am consuming. Still waiting on fecal fat tests to come back. I have had some recent small sugar elevations which I am able to control by diet. I feel very weak and fatigued and as of late when I eat the more I hurt. Lying down is very uncomfortable. An upper GI has been done which revealed some small ulcers and irritation of the Stomach lining. However, on followup tests the Protonix had healed the ulcers and irritation. An aspiration biopsy was done on the second upper GI which revealed a new onset of bacteria overgrowth. Amyloid has been ruled out but doctors can find no reason for the drastic weight loss or right upper quadrant pain. No Depression is in the picture. I need help fast... I finished a course of antibiotics for the bacteria overgrowth and I have been started on pancreatic enzymes;
Any suggestions on what could be wrong with me?
