Hello there, im an 18 year-old male, kind of athletic, i have been experiencing some abdominal problems since May, it first started with nausea and slightly turned into loss of appetite after a couple of days, although i had had h pylori 2 times back in 2017
So i first went to a doctor which indicated that this is stress related issue, and he didnt convince me so i went to the lab and i made blood tests, ultrasound, urine tests, everything came back as normal. i also got stool test for h pylori, came out negative.
i had final exams so i had no time to see doctors and this continued, after finishing exams i waited 2 weeks and on 18th of July i made another stool test which came back positive, im not sure whether it was a false negative or a false positive.
i took the triple therapy and slightly improved but not completely, thought it is still h pylori, after a month on August 18th i made another test and came back negative.
all my symptoms have come better expcept for loss of appetite.
last week, saw a new doctor and said this might be GERD and prescribed nexium and waiting to see if gonna be better, although it has been a week but still same.
i have no blood in stool, i dont feel full easily (i eat normal), i had no vomit, no fever, i dont smoke, i drink.
i also want to mention that i had been vaping in that period of time before i got the problems.
I also lost weight but it was intentional because most of days i used to literally eat one sandwich and sometimes i stay 24 hours without eating anything at all, now i am eating normally and my weight is now stable ( i even got it up about 2 pounds).
So now, if not h pylori, not GERD, if not some bacterial issue, what could that be? im really really nervous and my anxiety is off the roof! im so worried! what should i do?
sorry for the so long story but im really tired of being sick, it has been 3 and a half months 😦
