I have had moderate to severe upper abdominal pain for the last month and a half. The pain is often accompanied by bloating and sometimes even constipation. It even landed me in the hopsital for four days where I was given morphene, subjected to numerous tests including 2 CTs, Endoscopy, Conoloscopy, multiple blood tests, urinanlysis for Pleural Effusion, etc. All have come back negative! In an attempt to figure out what was wrong with me, and to alleviate the pain myself, I have tried changing my diet. For the last four days I have opted to try the five-a-day fruits &/or vegetable routine and avoid chocolate and other sweets, inculding soda. By the second day of this diet, I started to feel better. Today, in a further experiment, I ate some sweet candy w/out chocolate and began to feel ill again. Here is my question. Could this be a symptom of diabetes? I have other symptoms to some degree:occasional bouts of frequent urination, some excessive thirst, extreme fatigue that I just cannot shake, extreme hunger more often than normal (I feel like I always need to eat something.), and in addition, my father was diabetic? I feel like a hypcondriac, but this is affecting every aspect of my life. Some days it is very hard to function! Since the doctors do not know what is wrong, I'm searching in other avenues. Any ideas from anyone?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
