I am a 24 yr old who has been in relatively good health until June 2005. I started becoming extremely dizzy and off balance. Blood work was done and everything was normal was adv probally the extremely hot weather. It became progrssively worse and was referred to an ENT who adv that I had labrythinitis and I would be fine in a week. Weeks went by had to leave work couldn't be vertical, nausea and vomiting. Saw Neuro and had Ct and MRI all negative and was adv Benign Positional Vertigo. Then in August 2005 extreme lower right abdominal pain went to ER and was told had stomach flu and was dehydrated CT and labs negative for apendicitis. Was referred to GYN who adv possible endomitirosis treated w/ various forms of birth control and had lap in November 2006 which was negative so was then referred to GI who did colonoscopy which was normal and he adv that there was nothing wrong. So since 2005 to now I have had boughts of dizziness, fell nausous everyday some days I cant even look at food. I vomit at least once a week especially after eating. It has gotten so bad that I just dont eat anymore because when I do I am in extreme pain or I vomit. I dont have an appetite anymore and I go thru boughts of loosing and gaing weight. I lost 12lbs in a week and then 3 weeks later I gained 15 but was not eating. I was adv by my GI that it cant be IBS or anything gastro because the pain is 24/7. My GP thinks its in my head and I am depressed. My GI will not do anymore tests and I fell like no one is listening. I have switched to a new GI who seems like he will help. If anyone has had anything similiar or can offer any adv it would be greatly appreciated.
