Ok so I'll be turning 17 tomorrow and I've been sick for past 2 months.. I'm not eating, so i have to drink nutrition shakes in order to get something in me. I had to get hospitalized a couple weeks back, I was so dehydrated, nauseous and I was shaking and having irregular heartbeats. When they put me in there I had an Endoscopy done which came back with me having gastritis and I had a stomach emptying test done and it came back with nothing wrong. So they told me to take Carafate and Zofran and after about 2 weeks I started feeling better and I was able to go back to school but I was still having a bunch a nausea but then I had a relapse and then the nausea got worse, I would get dizzy from standing up, feeling like I'm going to pass out and of course Im still not eating. I cant even shower or brush my teeth because when i'm in the shower I feel like I'm about to pass out and I get extremely nauseous almost like Im about to puke and then I cant brush my teeth because even having anything in my mouth almost makes me throw up I tried to brush my teeth with the brush JUST touching the outter parts of my teeth and I still got nauseous, however I am able to do a sink wash but I have to do it fast because I can't stand up for too long. Also I can't look at electronics for more than a few minutes because I'll get nauseous. I had a flare up on February 6th and now the doctors still haven't found anything. I met this woman who believes in herbs and stuff and she looked at me and told me that she thinks I have Crohn's disease which makes sense with all the symptoms I'm having and she told me that I have a gluten intolerance. A fee weeks later the lab tests come back from the Endoscopy and it says that I have a severe case of lactose intolerance. But that shouldn't cause me to have all this pain just from that plus I havent been eating anything so where is all this random nausea and pain coming from?? And the nutrition shakes are lactose free so what the heck? So they don't know so I now I'm being scheduled to go back to the hospital and have a colonoscopy done. I'm pretty sure with the way they've been acting I doubt they'll find anything. And they said if I can't handle my nutrition shakes then they'll have to tube feed me.. if the shakes aren't then how will that work too? And I'm constantly nauseous Zofran doesn't work Phenergan doesn't work.. nothing is workingg and all they are doing is making me come to appointments and paying them to tell me to do the same thing and I'm always leaving empty handed why?? It's honestly like they don't care it's like they have all the time in the world. Since I have not been eating I've lost so much weight when this first started I was 235 lbs and now I'm 196 lbs and you can start to see my pelvis and you can feel it too. And I can only drink stuff too like I can drink water and Boosts shakes or Ensure shakes but whenever I try to even chew a tiny piece of a saltine cracker my stomach tells me basically to don't chell it anymore and don't swallow it, like it won't allow me to do it. And I'm just getting frustrated when I'm in all this pain and they act like they dont even care. I can't even cry about it because if I do then I get really nauseous and I feel like I'm about to puke or if I laugh.. when I laugh I feel like I can't catch my breathe and I'm gagging on air.. and when i tell my doctors about all of this and everything all they tell me is "well we can get someone for you to talk to because it looks like you're having a lot of anxiety from this" and I'm like yess because you're not doing anything you're just sitting there with your ahoes kicked up on the desk like you're on vacation it's ridiculous!!! I've missed 2 months of school and might have to repeat the 11th grade I don't have time to be waiting!!
