ive been struggling with right side abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting for a little over three weeks. It started suddenly and was so intense my doctor sent me to the er for appendicitis. They did a CT ( which made me terribly ill) and an internal ultrasound and came up negative so sent me home.
the pain continued and I couldn't eat so I went back to doctor, they said they didn't know but referred me to a GI. They GI did a HPylori test same day and scheduled an ultrasound. When I went in for that the tech told me that it was my gall bladder that hurt when she pushed on it but the scan showed 'nothing suspicious'.
I then had a colonoscopy and endoscopy which just showed an inflamed stomach. I am now waiting on a HIDA Scan to be scheduled.
meanwhile, I can't eat anything without terrible pain or nausea or both. In a day I'll have one cup of coffee with almond milk, a small piece of toast for lunch and maybe another for dinner. I tried ensure yesterday and the pain was very strong and made me cry. I've lost 12 lbs over the last few weeks and am just miserable. I don't know what to do.
I tried to work on Wednesday morning and after 2 hours the pain was just overwhelming, I was sweating and struggled to drive myself home ( I am a photographer so it's fairly physical).
Thoughts, ideas on how/what to eat? I know I'm getting malnourished, my legs are cramping a lot and I'm breathless and have chest pain quite a bit now. I'd really love to at least find something to give me nutrients that doesn't give me pain alongside.
