Hi, I'm Amy. I'm fifteen years of age, and I'd like to think I lead a healthy life style. I steer away from fatty foods most of the time and I try to work out every day. As much as I try to maintain good health, I still find my self sick. I have been suffering from stomach pains for the past few years. The pain is mostly in the morning, but can last throughout the day. The pain initially was diagnosed as an ulcer, so I ended up taking a medication called prevacid. I found no relief! I ended up living with the pain and medication for a few more months, until one night I fell victim to acute, sharp, stabbing, breath taking pains in the upper left side of my tummy. The pain was like nothing I have ever experienced before. I was so frightened by this that I went back to my doctor, and she still believed it to be an ulcer. I ended up having a barium xray. Well, just my luck, the tests came back negative. No ulcer! I have had these sharp pains more frequently, about every two weeks, sometimes twice in one week. They are so painful, I end up crawling in the shower and laying there crying. The pain lasts for 10-15 minutes, and once it's gone theres no other side effects. I did gag one time I had the pain, but other than that theres been no vomiting or diarrhea. I've still been having a pain in the morning, but the aching in the morning is a different feeling than the sharp attacks I get. The sharp attacks take my breath away, and make me feel like I'm about to die. My doctor is baffled with my symptoms. She doesn't know what it could be. I have to get blood tests, and I'm so scared of needles. I'm terrified of surgery or anything medical. But nonetheless, I have to get blood tests, and I am scheduled for an ultrasound on Monday. I know I may not have been clear, but I'm just lost. My head is spinning because of fear. I'm scared to know what it is, and I'm scared to know how I'll have to cure it. I want them to find whats wrong, I do, I just hope it's nothing too serious. Can someone help me, does anyone know what this might be or what I should do?
I'm willing to answer any questions you may have.
I'm just looking for answers
So tired of being sick!:(
