Sorry for the long post but I'm looking for some advice as I am at the end of my tether.
Three years ago I suffered for 10 months with nausea, acid reflux and excruciating stomach pains. I was told at first it was normal acid reflux then it was IBS and then it was endometriosis. I had an endoscopy, ultrasound on my gallbladder and other organs and internal gynaecological ultrasound with all coming back clear. I ended up in a&e twice in this ten month period and was seen by out of hours doctors on a weekly basis as I couldn't cope with the pain. I was told to take a variety of medications from omeprazole to buscopan etc with nothing working. Eventually it disappeared and nothing was ever followed up.
However this year it has come back and after another 10 months of suffering I cannot put up with it anymore. All the symptoms are the same plus a few new symptoms such as shortness of breath/struggling to breath and dizziness. I have been to my doctors on numerous occasions throughout the last 10 months and every single time they have just fobbed me off with different tablets which never work. I have been given one blood test to test for helicobactor pylori which was negative. I feel like they are not doing anything to help me and I understand it can be difficult if they can't find anything. I am a 23 year old woman and it is ruining my life. I don't sleep well and I feel unwell all the time. I can't remember the last time I felt well. I am sick to death and just feel like nobody wants to help me.
I would really appreciate if a professional could give me their opinion as I am just lost with what to do.
