I'm hoping someone on forum might help point me in a good direction. I have been experiencing abdominal pain fairly continuously since in October 2013. The pain generally appears after I ingest most foods, at times including water. Often it gets so bad that I can't function. The pain is both a cramping and stabbing pain that seems to originate in the stomach, but also moves through the intestinal track as well. I am constantly nauseated, but only rarely do I vomit. I also do not have diarrhea and the pain does not raise radiate through the esophagus.
I was told to take over the counter Omeprazole, after a year I was prescribed Pantoprazole, and most recently (October 2015) was prescribed Esomeprazole (40 mg, twice a day). I started taking Elavil (currently taking 75 mg) on January 5. From April 5 through April 19 I was taking Xifan in an attempt to clear out bacteria from the intestines. After an ER visit yesterday from the pain, I was prescribed Bentyl.
I also started following the low FODMAP diet, at the recommendation of a nutritionist, beginning on January 16.
The following is a listing of the tests, including the dates, that I have completed thus far. All of the results came back as “normal” or “unremarkable.” I have also had blood work done multiple times throughout this process.
Upper Endoscopy (12/10/14)
Upper Endoscopy (9/14/15)
HIDA Scan (10/1/15)
CT Angiogram (10/22/15)
Capsule Endoscopy (11/30/15)
Push Endoscopy (12/7/15)
Abdominal MRI (12/15/15)
Meckel’s Test (12/23/15)
CT Enterography (12/30/15)
Any thoughts, or has anyone else experienced something similar?
