I get these really painful stomachaches whenever my stomach and/or legs get cold or too hot, and when I eat after waking up. This usually leads to a fainting spell, and I just drop to the ground and lay on there until the nausea disappears (it leads to many weird stares from people). I feel better after using the bathroom, but my stomach feels acidic for a couple of days, up to a week. I end up staying in bed for the whole day and I'm not able to eat anything in fear and pain. I've often missed school and other events because of it.
I'm currently 22, and have had this problem since high school. I'm always having to be extra careful so it doesn't happen while I'm outside. This problem is more frequent during summer because of the temperature change indoors and outdoors (the a/c is my worst enemy). I always have to carry a blanket around and wear a jacket 365 days, my stomach is constantly bloated/gassy and make a lot of noise during class, and I can never wear anything that is thin or short.
I've had an endoscopy and visits to the doctor, and everything has come out clean. I'm not sure what the cause of this is, and I've read other forums with similar cases but they all say that they haven't been able to find the cause of it either.
If anyone could give any tips or advice about this issue, I'd be very grateful. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
