My partner is suffering from something that no doctor so far has been able to diagnose, in three seperate countries. She gets intermittant stomach pain, and by intermittant i mean a few days every few months, but the pain is enough that she is curled into a ball or crying at the time. It even is intermittant when it is effecting her, coming and disappearing anywhere from ten minutes to a few hours after it arrives, then disappearing for around the same time and returning just as strong. It comes with nausea and baths appear to help it. I Have offered cealiacs disease to her, as well as worms but so far testing for the first and treating for the second hasn't helped. Its a real mystery to me and her, and its really heartbreaking to see her like this. Any help would be really appreciated.

Notes about her:
She spends a lot of time around horses/farms
She is healthy otherwise.
No known allergies
Mid twenties
Born canada, spent time in europe, living in australia now, never been to asia or africa[for regional parasites?[

As I Said,a ny help is appreciated, if more information is required please ask!

  • Just bumping, any help would really be appreciated. She has been suffering for almost a whole week so far, she literally cannot get out of bed it hurts so much currently, she says the pain is blunt, not stabbing and continuous

  • first i'd like to say im no doctor but its strange how baths help unless it's something like cramping. i know a hot bath helps like period cramps. So maybe it's just stomach cramps?? You dont say if she's seen a specialist but if she hasnt done.. get your doctor to send her to a gastroenterologist to see what they say.
