I am a 21 year old male and have spent more time than I care to remember looking for answers to my health problems. After I have been to the ER a few times and have been dismissed by various doctors, being told it's all in my head and one even suggested that I am making it up. Here is what I am experiencing, if anyone has any ideas please let me know!:
-Constipation for as long as I can remember.
-Chest pains, over the heart, since 2006. Intermediated, it reaches around to the side and back at times.
-Sharp stomach pains and discomfort since 2007. Discomfort most of the time, pains at varying times.
-Reflux, bloating, dizziness, uncoordinated feeling since 2008. All of these symptoms are constantly occurring.
-"Brain fog" started in 2008, continued to get worse until now where it is constantly there, slight relief in the mornings. I can barely concentrate most of the day.
-Wheezing, particularly during the cold and when exposed to dust.
-Jolts of pain down my left side occur at varying times.
-Painful tingling and "pins and needles" occurring recently in legs, feet and arms.
I have had these tests:
- Various blood tests.
- Celiac disease blood test (NEGATIVE).
- Stomach ultrasound.
- Chest X-Ray.
- AlaTOP (REACTIVE).
- Thyroid function test (GOOD).
- Hep A (NEGATIVE).
- Hydrogen breath test (POSITIVE - Lactose Intolerance).
- Colonoscopy (GOOD).
- Gastroscopy (Slight Irritation and redness at junction).
- Various EKGs
The only things I have got from these test are: Nexium tablets, which I stopped taking as they made me feel generally unwell and sick, and to stop eating dairy products.
Things are getting worse and I feel as though my life will never get better and will never be fun again so long as this continues!
Thanks for any help, guys.
