During October 2016 I became violently ill and lost about 20kgs without even trying. Severe pain just below the breast bone left and right that landed me in the ER. Fatigue. Abdominal CT scan and many blood tests were negative. Heart tests fine.
In November 2016 I tested positive for H Pylori. While I was on the triple therapy the fatigue disappeared but at the same time I started to get a pain in my upper right quadrant, just below the breastbone. The pain comes and goes. Sometimes it goes away after I ate something, sometimes not. Ultrasound for liver, gallbladder and pancreas was negative. Sometimes the pain radiates down the whole right side of my body, almost like a burning sensation in that part of the colon. Lately I also started to experience light nausea and again fatigue, sometimes also and itchy feeling under my feet and light fasciculations of the calve muscles. After I experienced some low-grade fever (my whole body felt jittery) I took another course of antibiotics and the symptoms improved, just to re-appear a week after I finished the course of antibiotics.
Lately I just feel tired, bloated, the pain which I discribed almost always there, sometimes pain on both sides of my navel after I ate, my legs feel weak and sometimes my head feels too heavy for my body.
I experience almost no diarrhea except for a few times before the triple therapy, I was also constipated once or twice before the triple therapy.
I am going for a colonoscopy tomorrow (8 February).
I am a bit scared. I have a demanding job that takes me all over the world. I once picked up a parasite in Thailand but it was irradicated. Should I retest for something like that?
I have to go to Athens on Thursday and Stuttgart next week. Hope I'll be all right.
