I am at a complete loss for my current health situation, and if anyone has any info/tips it would be super helpful. I am a 21 year old girl, never any health problems and nothing of this sort runs in my family. One day at the beginning of June 2018 I woke up with terrible bloating and digestive issues after taking ibuprofen/aleve for a couple of weeks. I thought this was fluke as this has happened before, and I figured after a couple of days I would go back to normal. Nothing went back to normal and weird bowel movements still persisted. I thought I was facing some sort of IBD so I had a colonoscopy (all clear) endoscopy (all clear) - no H-pylori, no celiac disease nothing. Had full blood panel, thyroid tested, screened for auto-immune diseases, lyme, CT scan, all negative all NORMAL. At the beginning of July it escalated to the point of where I now never feel hunger I constantly feel full, it's been almost 4 months of feeding myself food. This is terribly stressful as I am in college and everyone wants to go out and eat and I feel as if that has been stolen from me. On top of all of this my heart rate has also been a major issue. Whatever has been going on has seemed to induce POTs syndrome like symptoms in my body. Laying my HR is at 60-75, standing it shoots up to 120-140, 160 on some mornings. I live in Florida and I used to LOVE the heat, now I can barely stand going outside because of whatever has been going on in my body. I haven't fainted which I am thankful for, but my symptoms appeared out of THIN air and I am so frustrated as to why and or how I have developed these mystery symptoms. I have an appointment with an Electrophysiologist tomorrow and I am demanding more testing and if he needs to send me to further specialists I will gladly go. I feel as if I am at the end of my rope and all of these symptoms are due to some genetic/point mutation in my body as it is unexplained. I'm not sure how to deal with forcing myself food for the rest of my life, or not being able to enjoy the outdoors/beach any more. This is the definition of living hell for a girl who is 21 years old to be going through such a bizarre unexplained illness or set of symptoms. If ANYONE has any sort of information and or tips/help to provide for me please do. I am at a complete loss and seeing all my friends enjoy day to day activities and go out on the weekends absolutely breaks my heart as I used to be the most happy/outgoing girl with everything ahead of me, and now I have the worst anxiety because I feel like a total freak and no one will ever want to be with someone so troubled. Keep in mind I look completely healthy and normal so it is very deceiving.
