Hi I've been sick for about 3 years now. I was a young healthy female until one day I started experiencing abdominal pain and it's just gotten worse ever since. The pain is located in the upper left region of my abdomin and is accompanied with severe weight loss, nausea/vomiting, loss of appetite, early satiety, pain when and after eating and severe bloating after eating. I can only eat a few bites before I get bloated, nauseous, and in excruciating pain. If I try to force myself to eat more then I will vomit everything back up. There are days where I can't even hold down anything, including liquids. I have been diagnosed with IBS, Endimetriosis (had surgery for), acalculus colistisitis (had gallbladder removed), gastritis, gastroenteritis and colitis. There is a debate on whether or not I have a rare diseases known as Superior Mesenteric Artery (SMA) Syndrome but so far no diagnosis has been made.. Does anyone have any ideas of what this is or any suggestions? :confused: Thanks!
