I didn't really know where to turn and I'm sick of getting fobbed off by doctors so I'm hoping someone can help me on here as I have no idea what is happening to me.
I've always had a bit of a funny tummy ever since I was little, and was told I had IBS when I was 7. As I grew up it relaxed a bit but when I was 18 I was admitted to hospital as I had gallstones and there was infection near my liver and pancreas. Since I left the hospital (before having the operation to remove my gallbladder) my stomach was in bits but I just put it down to the amount of medication I was on. A few months later I had my gallbladder removed which was great and I still dont regret it however, for the past 3 years (I am now 21) I have been going through absolute hell with my stomach. No matter what I eat, it goes straight through me, it could be a salad, fruit or something fattening- don't matter what it is but I'll need the toilet immediately after.
I can handle going to the toilet but sometimes I'll go to the toilet up to 16 times a day, and it'll be pure acidic diarrhea which will make me bleed after a while. I had what the doctor called a 'flare up' a few months back where I came over really cold and clammy, my joints were aching, I couldn't eat for days and I felt really sick. My abdomen was so swollen I couldn't wear jeans and it resulted in me almost passing out twice. I was signed off of work for a week and sent away to do stool samples, they came back normal. My doctor didn't send me for anything further and It has got to the point where I'm scared to leave my flat for long periods of time, or go to work when it's busy... The pain and overwhelming urge to pass out or throw up is too much now and I am getting sever pain in my lower back.
I fell pregnant a few months ago and it made me really unwell so I had a termination because I don't really know what is wrong with me and would rather get myself sorted before having a baby. I've had 2 incidents in the past 3 months where I have had an accident seconds away from my door and before hand I had eaten beans on toast. My appetite is small and I eat a balanced diet, but now I've stopped eating during my shifts as I don't want to need the toilet.
When I had a scan at the hospital for them to view my ovaries they couldn't see a thing because there was so much bowel movement in the way.
I have changed doctors and been sent for more stool samples and some blood tests. The stool samples came back normal again but the blood tests came back showing there is infection and inflammation, it shows that my liver and my pancreas are high but everything else is fine. I am not intolerant to food or celiac, I have been tested for Crohn's and colitis, I don't have either and I am getting more and more unwell by the day. I have days where I am okay and days where I feel like I physically can't move because my body feels drained and exhausted. I don't know what else to do, can someone please shed some light.
