Hi all,
Please would someone help me. I am a 20 year old female. I started feelinmg sick after eating about a year ago. It doesn't matter what i eat i feel horrendous. i also get very sore pains at the top of my stomach and on the right side. I have had a gastroscopy and an MRI scan but this has shown nothing. I have tried omeprazole and motillium but neither work. I should also mention that i have lost over 5 stone in weight now and just weigh under 50kg. I am really sick of feeling like this. As a result of all of this i now suffer from terrible panic attacks and have been prescribled propranolol 40mg which dont actually seem to be helping that much! It is now at the stage where i cant go out to eat or even go out normally as im scared i am going to feel sick. This is really affecting my day to day life now and i feel like a total recluse! I get severe heartburn and indegestion which started in pregnancy about 3 years ago and has never gone away. My consultant haas now reffered me to an eating disorder clinic but i am very sure i am not mentally ill as i like food and want to eat things i like without feeling terrible. i have been tested for crohns, diabetes and celiacs. Can someone please tell me how they test for intolerences such as wheat, gluten etc?
I would be soo grateful if anyone could help. Thank you x

Thank you xHi."a gastroscopy and an MRI scan but this has shown nothing" = Did they check your duodenum during gastroscopy test? If your stomach is normal, there may be other reasons, for example, problem with pancreas, gallbladder, small/large intestine. Did you pass any colonoscopy test? May be you have colitis, or ulcerative colitis or something like that. Anyway, the stomach disease is possible either, because in some cases there are complicated pathologies that can not be checked by usual means.
