First off, let me say thank you for reading this thread. I'm 17 years old and have been suffering with what seems to be a 'medical mystery' for almost a year. (I'll start explaining from the beginning, but it's a little lengthy, so I apologize)
This all started when I noticed my upper stomach, from above the belly button to where my ribs start, was very swollen. There was a pulsating sensation that I could feel constantly, but no pain. I just dismissed it until I developed a deep burning in this swollen section of my stomach. I was very concerned, but was told by many doctors that it was 'completely normal' and that it would go away with time.
I was not at all satisfied with this answer, and scheduled an upper/lower GI, paired with a biopsy. When that revealed nothing, it definitely hurt my pride, so I bought some Pepcid AC and tried to get on with my life. However, as of late new things are happening.
This burning in my stomach is much worse now and causing severe nausea in the morning. Along horrible pain, vomiting, and diarrhea when I'm menstruating Again, the pain is only associated with the swollen portion of my stomach. This is obviously getting worse, and since it's progressing so quickly I'm really getting worried.
Please, if anyone has any information that might help me, I would really, really appreciate it. I'm so confused, and my mom is at her wits end. We literally have no where to go from here.
