I have lost 25lbs and weigh 105. The main thing I can eat without triggering a spasm (these can last 5 minutes to 2 hours) is oatmeal. My gastro says it's not Gerd. I was also diagnosed with a cyst on my kidney to explain the pain in my right side and back. I frequently break out in hives on my back, butt, legs and arms. I've had an ultrasound, blood tests, chest xray and endoscopy. I've recently had a few bouts of brown urine (no pain). This has been going on since January. I tire easily and I have nausea and lightheadedness.I am a 54yr old female.

Does any of this sound familiar? My doctors don't seem to know what the problem is.
