Constant stomach pains under right rib, under left rib. Constant constipation for about a year, itchy skin, sore heads and constantly tired.

Blood tests came back i needed forolic acid, ultrasound showed no change in liver or any galstones.

    I have had sort of the symptoms you have.  My problem turned out to be a sensivity to gluten.  As long as I limit my intake things are good.  My skin has cleared up and constipation not always a problem like before.

      I eat a lot of oatmean, gluten free cereal, hamburger patties without the bun, smoothies.  salads, lots of chicken.  Look for a list of gluten free foods on line and you will find quite a big list to choose from.  Good Luck

    I know that lack of follicle acid can cause stomach problems. Your vagus nerve may also be irritated. I have similar problems with my stomach pains, but I go dizzy rather than the tiredness. My bloods are always ok as are my ultrasounds. Annoying, isn't it ? 

    Try the folic acid and see if it helps. Fingers crossed you will see some improvement smile

    Hi , I have just joined this group. I can understand you as i have alot of symptoms you do. I feel the lowest i haver been in my whole life, i feel at presant that i exsit  and have no life at all. This year i had a peg feed put in as i have not eaten now for nine years. I live on yogurt ice cream and soggy biscits. I had an op as i was very over weight. I also live with C.D.H. which i was told at the age of 25, since then i have had 52 ops on my legs and i dont know what to do any more, or which road to take. I need a revission which has been said by three  Bariatric surgeons, but always  come down to cost. I feel like giving up.
