I'm new to this site and am hoping for some insight. Let me give you some background in hopes it will help. I'm a 22 year old male. 5'11 145 lbs. Always been on the thin side, not by choice. Starting at age 10 I had severe stomach pain that prohibited me from getting out of bed. This went on for about 7 years ultimately putting me in a home schooling program. It was a sharp pain like being stabbed with knives above the belly button. I was in and out of the doctors multiple times a week. The doctors went through ever possible scenario from being lactose intolerant to depression, and every other situation they could think of. I bounced around from specialist to specialist with no answers. I was rushed to the er one morning and they scanned me and said my appendix was up side down and about to burst and I needed to go in for emergency surgery and then changed their mind? After a couple hours. Gave me some morphine and an Iv and sent me on my way. They finally told me it was acid reflex and a hiatle hurricane, which I don't really believe but it was nice to have some answers after so much pain and so many years of searching, even if they weren't correct. Anyways I seemed to outgrow it and fortunately was able to regain a normal life. I still have pain here and there but have built up a pretty great tolerance to it. Anyways my faith in doctors seemed to disappear after that and I haven't been back sense. Recently I've been having some stomach issues and am curious if anyone can point me in the right direction. I'd say the last 3 weeks I've had diarrehea every night and only at night. I feel like I need 10 hours of sleep just to function. I've been achy and can't put on weight to save my life which makes my day in day out routine very difficult as I have a very labor intensive job which requires 10 hours of standing work with heavy lifting. I really would rather not go to an MD unless absolutely necessary. I'm just hoping to find some answers so I can move on with my life. I eat a lot of food every day and eat fairly healthy. Breakfast includes toast eggs bananas and the occasional cinnamon rolls. Lunch is usually pasta with either shrimp or chicken and dinner is usually bakes potatoes, meat, salad and milk. Any ideas or opinions are more than welcome. Thanks in advance.
