Hello, This is a bit of an embarrasing issue for me but I have tried alot of things and decided this couldn't hurt.
I have an undiagnosed bowel/stomach issue. The symptoms are abdominal cramping (upper and lower), diahreah, irregular bowel movements, mucus in stool, panic, and sweating. These issues started in early March of 08 and still continue.
So far I have had a coloscopy, upper and lower GI series of x-rays, fecal test, 72 hour urine analysis, celiac testing, and several different blood tests/work-ups. The doctors have eliminated Chrones disease, cancer, colidis, wheat allergy, gall bladder disease, and a few other things that I can't remember. I have been on several medications to help regulate and control the symptoms. Immodium, lonox, symax, phenergen, align, several rounds of various anti-biotics, and am currently taking Nortriptonol (which helps but doesn't work all the time).
My insurance company is refusing to allow my Gastro doctor to do a CT scan which is one of the few remaining tests we have option for to get a diagnosis. This is very stressful and for a period of several weeks before I started taking the Nortriptonol I was unable to work or leave the house because I was in the bathroom most of the day.
If anyone has an idea that can help I am willing to listen. We just found out that my wife is pregnant and I am hoping to resolve my issue so we can enjoy life with a new addition to the family.
