I think I got food poisoning in June, felt perfect until a little after lunch then had pain in upper middle abdomen, lower abdomen when i walked, couldn't even walk for a while, extreme nausea. I didn't start vomiting until 2 days later, then I vomited for weeks, tests never found an infection, but found raised C-Protein, had a slew of other tests, everything came back negative.
I have now had nausea, upper abdomen discomfort, and general feeling like s**t for 7 months, constantly, every day, rarely a fever, some phlem. Recently I took a SIBO test which also came back negative, leading to a diagnosis of post infectious IBS. I feel constipated almost all the time, I feel full immediately, vomited last night after a bit of dinner, and go from feeling full - to feeling like im so hungry I need to throw up.
How do people live with this? No medication works, luckily I have been able to work from home during this, but with no signs really of returning to work anytime soon, im sure i will get fired at some point, IBS is not something you can get disability for and I feel like s**t almost all day every day. I really don't get how/why people would want to live like this, constant agony, no end in sight, no treatment.
How long does this last? How do people work? I feel like im going crazy, I don't want to live like this anymore
