Hi- I am new here--- I have had digestive issues for the past 4 years. They started about 1 year after my father was killed on 9/11 (I was 16 years old). I am now 21, graduating college and feeling worse than ever. The abdominal pain is always present and sometimes quite severe. Located in both the lower right side and the upper left. I have pretty bad nausea almost every day. Diarrhea yet strained bm's. For the first time EVER I fainted two days ago. I was very nauseous and lightheaded and then bam. I have had a colonoscopy, endoscopy, barium cat scan, barium small bowel series, hundreds of blood tests etc. I have a B12 deficiency which is controlled by sublingual tablets. I have high platelets which started after the stomach symptoms. (as did the b12). I feel awful and I have not found any relief in the many meds/treatments i have tried. I have been on antispasmodics, antiacids, antidepressents, etc. I have done acupuncture and energy healing, homeopathy, went to a nutritionist etc. I am basically at the end of the road here with things to try. Will get a capsule endoscopy in 3 weeks. Until then- no idea what else to try. When my tum is very very bad i get low grade fevers 99.5-100.0 and sometimes my joints ache. I am so so so tired of feeling awful and being told "it's just IBS." Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks- ANGRYTUMReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
