Ok, so I’m 22 years old and I've had stomach problems for as long as I can remember. It's generally nausea but occasionally stomach pain as well. On a regular basis I also experience bloating and gas which is very painful. My bowels are never consistent where as I am either constipated or have diarrhea. The nausea seems to have a mind of its own and sometimes I feel sick after eating, other times I feel sick if I haven’t. I have had two upper GI’s which were normal as well as an endoscopy to check for ciliacs disease. This came up negative as well.


I also have random joint pain periodically, usually in my fingers, but sometimes elbow, shoulder, or jaw as well. Usually it is a knuckle or two; it will hurt for a few weeks, sometimes a few months, and then eventually just go away.


Recently, around March, I began experiencing trouble swallowing which was what made them think ciliacs. I also began feeling sever fatigue and headaches which haven’t gotten better over time, but instead worse. My doctor constantly told me it was anxiety but I know it isn’t. I have recently switched doctors but I have to wait a few weeks for my appointment.


If anyone has any ideas I’m just sick of being the sick one in my group of friends, I’m only 22 and want to live a normal life.

Oh, I’m also a non-drinker
