Hi, I have been going doctor after doctor for the past year, and no one seems to find out what is wrong with me. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism on Nov 05 and put on Levothiroxine. It took me a year to stabilize and finally I am now on a steady .150mcg I also managed to loose 30lbs I had gained. I am 157 lbs. I take each day my thyroid medication, then ½ a Phentremine pill (hunger control) and my Birth control at night. I was doing great but all of a sudden I have started to feel like im going to die, each day when I wake up its like I am going to faint, I start sweating, heart racing and a lot of nausea, sometimes I vomit. One I take some sugar I’m fine, like it never happened. This episodes were really spread out and my doctors both endocrinologist and family doctor said it was due to me waking up to quickly and my heart not pumping enough blood to my head. But now its happening more often. I also have bad pain under my right rib cage that comes and goes, and I usually wake up with a lot of pain in my waist and it goes away once I Pee. Doctors have done hepatitis tests, Upper GI, cat scans, sonograms of bladder, kidneys, and ovaries. I even had a cistoscopy done which was horribly painful. They all say there is nothing wrong with me, no gallstones, no kidney stones, no hernia but I swear to god I feel really bad. Doc put me on prevacid and prilosec and I still have nausea. Now I carry around a bottle of melox or pepto because I really can’t take the nausea. And I am not pregnant.
My wedding is a week away on March 24th and I really want to be able to have a good time.

Please if some one can help me I would really appreciate this!
