This is my first poston this site and I would like to hear some thoughts as to what is going on.
I'm a 37 year old male who's problems started in September last year with unexplained dizzy spells. My doctor referred me to the specialist who suggested silent migraines, I've never had migraines.
In the meantime in December I started with a pain in my right rib and was rushed to A&E who decided it could be gallstones, so I had an ultrasound scan but all clear and no stones. During the ultrasound it was noted that I was bloated and referred to a gastroenterologist.
January this year I had severe nausea, diarreah and felt generally unwell for 3 weeks losing 5kg in weight and a further trip to A&E.
All this time since September my energy levels have been decreasing and fatigue increasing resulting in more and more sleep every day. I noticed severe mental confusion after a 5 minute walk!
In March my Gastroentrologist discovered a stomach ulcer during an endoscopy and I started a course of omeprazole whilst also suggesting I may have IBS-D. Additionally my vitamin D was found to be half of what it should be. I am 2 weeks into a 10 week course of 50000 iu D3 per week.
We are now in April and my energy levels are at an all time low, my fatigue is crippling and I just feel so ill. I can't think straight and I am now off work. If I take the dog for a 30 minute walk I spend the next day in bed with headache and fatigue!
My calves, hamstrings and shoulder blade muscles hurt all the time and as of last week my doctor is referring me to be checked for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Help anyone with insight or advice?!
