I am 31 years old currently living with parents based in the UK. I run a small Web Design company designing clients’ websites and helping them advance their business online.
I currently have a physical condition that has been going on for some time and I need some help. I have chronic pain in my stomach. I cannot eat. I eat small portions rather than standard breakfast lunch and dinner, enough to keep going and generally go hungry. If I eat too much the pain can be extraordinary. I also have a red rash on the right side of my face that has been there for some time.
I used to drink, smoke cigarettes and self medicate with marijuana however I haven't done this for four years. I also get cravings for junk food i.e. chocolate; potato chips etc however I don't eat these because they make it worse.
I have taken the normal medical route, been to the gastroenterology department in two hospitals, seen a specialist consultant, had blood tests, an ultrasound and a chest x-ray which all came back normal. I had two endoscopies which discovered two small ulcers in my stomach however I was prescribed omezrapole (which I still take) and was told they were gone and I have no inflammation, however my symptoms are exactly the same, and in fact getting worse. Basically they have told me there's nothing wrong with me.
Apart from omezrapole I also take pregabalin for pain, gavison advance and digestive enzymez (without Hydrochloric acid). These all help with the symptoms but have not resolved them fully.
Based on my symptoms and my research it seems like I have some kind of parasite. I need some suggestions for what to do as this condition is really inhibiting me. I want to get out of my situation living at home be independent however this ailment is really disabling. I work as much as possible to keep going but I don't have much money. I need suggestions, if anyone knows any specialist on this subject in the UK.
