This all started about 7 month ago , i was 18 . I had symtoms were light stool, nausea, no appetite , i dont know if it was because i was extremly scared and depressed or what. I had a ct scan on my head, cause i was about to faint, i thought i was dying, but they tolds me i had bronchitis. About another month or two they ordered another ct but for my abdomen cause i threw up green liquid. Nothing again. Then for about 4 months i was alright , sometimes pain here and there but nothing serious. Also during those 4 months i was an endoscopy and ultrasound, i think it was about 2 mnths ago. Endoscopy revealed serious inflammation i alot of places i cant remember, they told be i had that and gastritis. Ultrasound revealed that my liver was larger than normal, they said it was non alcoholic fatty liver. Now a week ago i had SERIOUS pain in one specific spot in my upper left abdominal area. When to a doc in mexico, he told me to lay down and touched my abdomen, and told me i was bad inflamation. Told me to lay sown fatty and spicy foods. I asked him if it could be PC and told me i would be almost 300 pound if i had and that in 3 months you die from it, i had kind of a relief. The pain went away, but sometimes i get just one pretty strong sharp pain in my upper left abdomen, also pains in my right side of the abdomen, palms, fingers, back, feet all just very random. Something that is really worrying me is that my hands from the knuckles to the middle of my fingers are red and have been since yesterday. Today i lve been haing very minor pains on both sides of abdomen, and a minor headache. i would really appreciate any kind of response

    It's just a thought, but have you seen an allergist or homepath?  I wonder if your symptoms could have something to do with a gluten intollerance.

    HI Robert I hope you're still following this page.  I wonder if you've been referred to a good gastroenterologist, if not ask for a referral, I think you need a consistent medico in your life and not jumping from one to another as symptoms might be overlooked and possible solutions not followed.  If not a gastro a specialist general physician has the skills to check you out entirely.

    Request a copy of all the tests/results you've had so far so you can show your new doctor as a starting point.

    Stress can exacerbate symptoms so do try to be calm.  Good luck
