ive been ill for 6 months now with right upper abdominal pain and nausea/vomiting. I was originally told i had a blood clot on my liver and then told this wasnt the case it was an autoimmune problem to a nerve problem and i have now been told it is likely to be a fuctional gastrointestinal disorder. The majority of foods make me sick to the point i can't keep anything down and sometimes the pain is unreal to the point i can't get out of bed. All i want is to be able to eat and manage my symptoms, but trying to ask for help is impossible as drs are just not listening.
Ive lost 2 stone in weight and im really worried about my nutrition as i just cant keep most food down and when im sick i can't manage my pain as i can't keep the pain relief down, but last time i rung my gp in tears he just said to deal with it and give me some oramorph! Nobody seems to be concerned over my weight! ive recently seen a specialst at a different hospital but wished i let my local gi consultant do they referral but i let my gp do it and the gp said i have IBS (even though ive never been told this and i dont even meet the criteria!) i was very dissapointed with this consultant again didnt want to listen tried to say ive suffered from trauma and child abuse (even with my mum in the room) none of which have happened ive had a great upbringing and was fine before all this happened! All i want is to be able to eat and not suffer the consquences but its becoming obvious thats too much to ask for!
Im convinced it could be a problem with my gallbladder function but when i asked about this including a HIDA scan he just said i would need to see a surgeon even though i was under the surgeons for 6 weeks while in hospital. Its soo fustrating, and last year i had 2 occasions where i woke up with pain after a heavy fatty meal, it lasted for a couple of hours i was sick then i was fine again (convined i had gallstones but no stones).I have to go back to work soon as i have no choice im dreading it but if i dont go i could lose my job! (i work for the NHS as well, i had no support its been awful)
Anybody else had any problems like this, doctors not listening im sick of it, im sure there is summit out there that could help with symptoms without relaying on opiates and anti emetics 24/7??
