I have had stomach problems since I was born and up until about 3 years ago we have always just went about our business with it because "oh you just have really bad acid reflux".
I am now 22 years old and was hospitalized for my stomach problems 3 years ago, i was vomitting, diarherra, loss of appetite, well the doctor said it was just spastic colon and gave me some medicine. The medicine did not work so I stopped and went to someone else to try and find another anwer.
I had an ultrasound to check for gallbladder stones, I didn't. I have blood work and a fecel sample done, normal. Gave me medicine for parasites because I went out of the country for a week, didn't go away. Well my doctor I guess gave up and i never heard back for what the next step was.
In the last 2 weeks I have gone to the doctor 3 times, been in the hospital once, and gone to the gyno once. The doctor thought I had a stomach bug so gave me some medcine and sent me home, 4 days later I still wasn't better so I went back and they did a xray, saw nothing, so he ordered a ct scan. They call back and say you have an enlarged uterus and a cyst that ruptured and all the free fluid from it is what is causing all your pain get an ultrasound. I go to my gyno and get an ultrasound and they say my uterus is normal size but it still could have been a cyst but once a cyst ruptures you should feel better.
So now im back at square one with having NO IDEA as to what is wrong with me and nobody can figure it out either. Needless to say I have very frustrated and can not keep living in pain like this.
What is the next step? I know you aren't suspposed to diagnose yourself, but appendix, stomach ulcers all these things come to mind because there has to be something.
