I am now 27 years old and have never had any major health issues until October of 2014 where I was 22 or 23.
In September 2014 I went on a holiday with a friend to Amsterdam and then to Poland. In Amsterdam I ate a blueberry cannabis muffin that was covered in fungus. My friend noticed something odd on the muffin but I thought it was the blueberry coloring and unfortunately I was wrong. The muffin was very sweet and I only noticed that there was mold when I got to the bottom of the wrapper. I was a bit worried but felt fine the next day. We went around various restaurants eating all sorts of food. In Poland we would too eat out at restaurants and me being me I had a lot of brittle wafers with cream milk and sometimes different flavors. There were a few days in a row where I would eat at least 10 of them and they were very very sweet.
We were back before October 2014 and at the time I was moving out of my family home to a new town to start a business. With me moving out my eating habits changed and what I would eat changed as it wasn't easy living by myself. I would eat a lot of microwave foods and also continued eating sugary products. Soon came October and I started having these weird sounds coming from my stomach and intestines. I would get stomach noises before when I was hungry but this was different, it made me feel like something was wrong, I would have eaten something and I'd still have these noises. Soon I started having lower left abdominal pain and couldn't help but think it was some sort of an infection, bacteria, or a virus. I even thought that it might be yeast or candida after reading some stuff on the Internet. My doctor said they would do some tests and they did, I had a blood and a stool test and both came out clean.
The pain was getting worse, the noises too, I had all sorts of problems but that's too much to talk about here. A different doctor told my that I have IBS but I wasn't happy with that because I've never had IBS in over 20 years so it didn't seem like this was the case. Soon I started using amphetamines as they seemed to help and they would also take the pain away. I was disappointed with the doctors as I wanted them to give me antibiotics just to be sure but they refused. Problems persisted and eventually I had an abdominal ultrasound which came clear and nothing was found.
In the past few years I've had quite a few appointments, I've had blood and stool tests and they all came out fine even though my stools stopped forming properly for some reason. I was told that I needed more fiber in my diet so I did try but this didn't help at all. I've never really had much fiber in my diet before the problems started and I had normal stools.
My problems dragged on for months and my mental state became a mess, the amphetamines didn't help but without them I was desperate for some kind of a solution, with them I was feeling a little bit better but I still couldn't focus, concentrate or do anything productive. Eventually I had to throw the amphetamines out as they drained my body and made me worse. The abdominal or intestinal issue drove me nuts and I think it was the major thing that had an impact on my mental health. Without this problem I wouldn't have gotten myself into amphetamine which in the long run did not help.
It is now 2019 and I think the original problem might have cured itself but new ones arose and I am desperate to heal my body as I've been literally useless those past 4 years. My life has been ruined and I don't see any future for myself. I've completely stopped socializing and I just try to get through the day because I never feel like doing anything as I don't feel good or even right like I used to before the problems started.
In the past year I have started experiencing an additional problem which now makes me feel hopeless. Somewhere last year or the year just before that they found some white blood cells or something in my blood and they wanted to do a lumbar puncture. I wanted an MRI for my head because of something that happened due to the amphetamine and they also said they would do a lumbar puncture. I did not want the lumbar puncture but on the day of the MRI they did it anyway because I allowed them to convince me and now I regret this. The idiot doctor poked the needle into a nerve and my whole leg shot up in the air, very unpleasant feeling and it happened more than once. Later on the MRI and the lumbar puncture came out as clear, nothing was found. A few weeks later I was back on amphetamine for some reason and this time at work I had to carry a large stone tile with another person. It was very heavy and stupid me forgot to crouch on my knees and instead bent my back to pick it up and carry it for about 5 minutes. I didn't feel no pain until a few days later probably because of the stimulating effect of amphetamine where I knew I screwed up my back with that stone tile as I could feel this compressed spine like feeling. Few months went by and I don't remember feeling any of it. Now almost if not over a year later today I have been having back problems. I get lower back pain, that feeling of a compressed spine is sometimes there but when I touch the spine I can't really feel anything yet sometimes when I sit and move about I can feel like it's compressed or something like that. I've also experienced pain from the lumbar puncture area just recently, it felt like they poked the needle there only a week or two ago but this too has gone at least for now.
I get these weird vibrations. It starts in tummy or maybe around the bladder and within seconds I feel it in the anus. It's like an electrical current that travels from one side to the other. It's very weird and makes me think that it has something to do with a virus, infection or some kind of bacteria. Or sometimes I can feel like there's a vibration in my anus and then it goes up into my stomach.
Another possibility that I was considering is that after all of that amphetamine use the original problem probably went away and a new one formed. I used to have problems with the lower left abdominal side but this doesn't seem to be the issue these days although it does happen occasionally. I think that now pain from the left loin is more common and I am worried that it might be to do with the muscles that are there. In fact I am worried that the amphetamine destroyed my lower left back muscles and now it feels like they can't stretch like they used to, I don't know, I am desperate for some kind of a solution to my health problems and can't help but feel like it would be much easier if I had like 10 grand and went to private doctors.
Generally speaking I feel like the doctors never treated me properly, they didn't ever seem to listen or want to discuss anything, they just had their own ideas and made their own decisions. No real consultation ever happened. It's like they're computers with specific tasks and if something doesn't fit in they just slap a label on it like IBS rather than trying to locate the root of the problem.
I no longer know what to do, I had another ultrasound done today for my kidneys and my bladder and this came out fine as well. I suspect that I have muscle or nerve problems. I forgot to mention that in 2015 I ended up with a very numb left pinky finger for a few weeks if not a month or two and this was because of using amphetamine and playing computer games where one keyboard button was constantly smashed with the pinky finger.
My life has gone down the drain in those last 4 years, I now suffer with lower back pain that comes and goes but it feels like it's always there, some kind of a pain around my left kidney around the back (possibly a muscle pain, it kind of feels like something is rotten numb or swollen or like it shouldn't be there), sometimes lower left abdominal problems or intestinal, and these vibrations that come and go. I literally have no hope left, I would jump of a bridge if I could as I don't feel like I will ever be healthy again but I'm not brave enough.
Anyone got any ideas? Thank you.
