I have been sick since October of 2007. It started with terrible diarrhea (10-20 times a day). I have been through every test known to man. In March 2008 the Dr. discovered that my cystic duct was completely obstructed and it was removed the next day. After that I only felt worse. I have had blood workups, upper GI, colonoscopies, gastric emptying studies, stool samples...you name it, I've had it done. Still NOTHING! Two months ago I was watching Mystery Diagnosis and saw a woman on there with similar symptoms, it turned out to be a B12 deficiency. My Dr. tested for that and my rate came back at a 199. She started me on injections and still nothing. I have severe abdominal pain (upper quad) between my ribs, horrible lower back and joint pain in my lower extremities and the diarrhea just won't stop. I am 30 years old and have 2 children that want their mom back. Does this sound like anything that anyone has ever had or heard of? Please help me get my life back.
