My name is Tiffany and I'm a 23 years old female.
Unfortunately my story starts 6 months ago. I have intense pain that feels like an angry ball of pain that sits in my upper abdominal area. It feels like my stomach is eating itself. I am naseaous all the time, life feels like it's becoming unbearable to live. It affects my life every single day. I am freshly married and this not only effects my life but my husbands as well. Most days I can barely get out of bed.I am up for any suggestions, and will answer any questions. If you care to read further detail here is my story.
About six months ago I started having intense nausea and stomach pain and threw up everything I ate. My bowel movements were all over the place from diarrhea for three days to severe constipation.
When this problem started I weighed 160lbs. Within 4 months I dropped 30lbs and have continued to lose weight and am down to 120 lbs. I can't stop losing. I have no appetite at all I could not eat for days and never get hungry.
A month after this issue started I ended in the ER due to myself passing out and barely even being able to walk. The doctors said I had the flu and sent me me home with zofran to help the vomiting. However the constipation from zofran became almost As unbearable as my sickness, I found myself feeling worse.
Fast forward almost 6 months and this is what I've been through. Endoscopy, colonoscopy, several blood sample, stool samples, ct scan, and an 3 ER visits, countless bags of fluids, and an ultrasound. All of which we found nothing.
Promethazine, ranitidine and tramadol are currently what I'm on but the dizziness from the nausea med is so bad I cant even stand after taking it. I'm finding that none of these meds are subsiding the issues enough to live life.
I also use to smoke marijuana, a doctor advised stopping so I did but it has not helped at all. If anything it's made it worse, smoking (indica only) was the only way I could get myself to feel up to eating.
My diet consists of crackers, bread, soup broth, this slices of turkey lunch meat, and very plain lentil and noodle soup. I can feel myself shrinking and getting weaker. I can barely walk through a grocery store without feeling weak like passing out.
I'm feeling beyond helpless and just need some answers. I feel like I'm slowly waiting to shrink and die. Im freshly married for only 4 months, this is not the life my husband signed up for. I'm so desperate for answers I will try anything. Any opinions suggestions, really anything? I feel like the doctors have just given up and keep passing me around to other doctors.
