I am a 29 year old male (150 lbs, 6 ft) and I have had an issue for a few years now that is persistent in making my daily routine miserable. My symptoms: Morning Nausea, Fatigue, Bloating, Shortness of Breath, Stomach Aches, Fluttering Around Heart, Inflammation on lower left abdomen, Excessive Foul Smelling Gas, Ribbon Stools, Dry Throat, Pulsating Feeling throughout body (especially in abdomen region). I consider myself a moderate drinker and used to drink 2-3 drinks everyday but have cut down my drinking signifcantly to not drinking at all during the week while having some wine or beer on weekends. However, the symptoms get exponentially worse after having just 1 alcoholic drink and I cannot figure out the underlying cause or a solution. The symptoms are still present even when I am not drinking and am really looking for a diagnosis and solution to what I have.
My symptoms are always the same and I have been to the doctor countless times and have had every test imaginable: H Pilori Test, Full Body CT Scan, Endoscopy, Blood Tests, EKG, all come back negative. The doctor recommended I give up drinking and drastically alter my diet, which I have tried for a month with no conclusive results or noticeable change. She then stated this is all due to anxiety....the only anxiety I have is that I don't feel good. I have tried Prilosec, Nexium, Omeprazole, Ginger Capsules, and Probiotic Capsules (20-30 Billion count). The only ones that have slightly helped are the Ginger Capsules and Probiotics, but the symptoms still persist. I eat pretty healthy, since greasy and fried foods do not appeal to me with my nausea. I do not eat breakfast typically other than yogurt or fruit because I just can't and dont feel like eating in the morning, but will eat a banana or something because I know I need to. I wake up everyday feeling nauseas and tired and have no interest in food until hours after I have been up and about. I also typically exercise twice a week (2-3 miles running on the treadmill), but lately have not had the energy to do so. Yesterday I ran 2 miles since I had not run in 2 weeks and the symptom felt even worse afterwards - shortness of breath and fatigue most noticeably - and not a typical work out type feeling.
Please let me know if someone has suffered from these same symptoms and how to go about resolving this. Everyday I wake up feeling miserable.
