I eat better than anyone I know...take better care of myself then almost anyone I know....I wake up almost everyday of my life with nausea, pain, and frequent bowel movements...sometimes 30 times a day I have to go....This has been going on my whole life...my parents have had me at doctors since I was a baby...Now in my mid twenty...and I can't work....I can't function in daily life....I am always sick... I have been on every diet out there trying to control this...Every medication....nothing helps....it got worse later in life...I had surgery almost two years ago...and they found that I have abdominal adhesions on the left side of my intestines...as well as a tumor on my appendix....they removed the adhesions the non-cancerous tumor and appendix...and still I suffer....even though the doctors have tried to convince me I'm fine there is nothing wrong with me....They can't find anything wrong with me....now!

When I get labs done...my white blood cells are always high....my electrolyes are always low....my colonoscopy/endo showed chronic inflamatory cells in the dueodnum....now when they call to tell me the results they always say it's normal...

Other symtoms...are painful 18-21 day menstral cycles....hot flashes....and a lowerd immunity to the point I get sick with a cold about every time I leave my house...I can't keep weight on....I can't function....and not one of the dozens of doctors I have seen has an explanation for me....

A Million possibilities but no end in sight....get on Webmd and search my symtoms and it could be any of the stomach disorders...how can I live like this...

I have never talk to anyone that has something even remotely close to what I suffered with everyday of my life....
