I've tried asking everywhere and around different websites and I just need some help, any would be so appreciated. For the past 8 years I've been passed around different doctors and hospitals and no one has ever been able to help me, we still have no idea what's wrong. I'm just 17 so we started investigating when I was 9 and things are getting so bad I'm desperate for any kind of help.
The main problem has always been severe nausea, I rarely vomit but I'm always sat over the toilet just in case as it gets so bad sometimes. Everything I eat makes me feel sick which means my diet has become quite restricted, something I'm sure isn't helping. But recently I've had the worst kind of nausea I've ever had. It's the type I used to feel when I got extremely hungry, but food doesn't really help I'll just feel the same extreme nausea/hunger thing about half an hour later. My stomach feels like it's turning inside out and I've spent the past few weeks bent double in my house over a toilet. I don't understand, I'm eating little but often and more than I usually do which would make me feel full on a normal day. But this nausea is just terrible. I haven't been able to sleep for weeks cause it keeps me up, often coupled with stomach aches. There's no chance that I'm not eating enough and I always drink a lot of water.
As well as constantly feeling sick I get very faint and sometimes shaky, and I have to sit down quite a lot cause I'll go light headed and dizzy. I'm always feeling tired or just exhausted, and I feel extremely weak all the time. I also get mucus with bowel movements which is kind of worrying, but I never really thought much of it until recently.
I have severe headaches a lot but doctors think that's down to migraines so that doesn't worry me much, it's everything else that hasn't been diagnosed that drives me crazy.
Sometimes I can't even get out of bed, and if I go out I'll have to sit down after half an hour and I'll have gone light headed. I'm also finding at the moment this nausea that feels like extreme hunger hits like 10 times a day or sometimes never goes away especially in the evening and night, and it's got so bad that I have to stop everything I'm doing and sit down or try and eat some food. The nausea hasn't always felt like this but it's always been very bad. I'm so desperate for a diagnosis, I feel like I've seen every doctor in London but nothing is happening.
I think the main thing is my stomach maybe hasn't been tested enough. I've had blood tests for a lot of stuff but everything has come back fine, I'm not anaemic, and a good few years ago I have a stool sample that was normal but that was a long time ago mind you. My blood pressure is normal. I've also had an MRI scan of the head for my headaches which was fine. Other than these, I've had absolutely no other tests. I've tried pretty much every anti-nausea drug there is, absolutely nothing works for me. I'm so desperate and I have no idea what to do, I'm still with various doctors but I need some indication of what might be wrong cause it's driving me mad, I can't do anything anymore.
Any help would be amazing thank you
