Ive been ill for 5months now and nothing is being diagnosed!i had quite a few blood and stool tests a couple of months ago which were all clear.i also had an endoscopy a couple of days ago but it was clear although the Doctor took some samples to check under the microscope.Im just wondering if anybody else is going through or has been in the same situation?or can identify whats going on?

My symptoms are-

•Nausea

•Stomach and Bowl pains/cramps

•Headaches

•Constipation 

•Fatigue(extreme tierdness)

Any suggestions what it could be?

    if doctors can't find a cause it can be intolerances, there's lots of information about it on the net; the usual culprits are grains or dairy products; you could try keeping a food diary to see what upsets you but an elimination diet is better. With an elimination  diet you introduce new foods gradually into your diet and note the reactions, again there's a lot of info out there. A friend of mine recently gave up wheat and the difference was huge. good luck.

      If fatty foods effect you (they do me too) you could have gastritis, i have a chronic form and I avoid alcohol, sugar, salt, dairy, wheat and all things acidic like citrus fruits. the results of your biopsy should tell you what's going on;

    Hi daisy, you say you had an endoscopy ? Do you mean colonoscopy as that's the area they should be targeting. Are you on any meds, if so which ones ?

      Yes that right,theyve given me ones that disolve in the mouth to stop the nausea,i take the 30-60 mins before i eat and sometimes they work a little bit but normaly they dont make much difference.

      What did they give you? And was it an endoscopy or colonoscopy What are they doing about a follow up ?  You need to stamp your feet and demand they do something they just can't dismiss you

      Lanzoprazole are for upper GI and gerd complaints (ppi)s.  Still don't know why they didn't do a colonoscopy,

    Is there any fever? How is your appetite? Headache is a little unusual When its your stomach thats the problem. For the stomach be careful as to what you are eating and it could be stress.

      My research tells me that you can cure yourself of ibs by making sure the balance of flora in the gut is correct.

      It could be candida, but really they are morer less the same thing with two different names.
