Hi everyone, I'm posting as I'm at my wits end as to what may be wrong with me, and can't really find anyone with similar symptoms to what I experience.
Ive recently turned 40, still youthful and healthy ,and for the last 2 years have been having these isolated episodes. At first they happened almost exactly 3 months apart, then began much closer together now around 6 weeks apart, I have had 9 episodes in total.
The only stomach complaints I have had in the past were mild IBS, I was feeling the need to go to the toilet during meals quite often and almost 'emptying out' when this happened, doc gave me Mebeverine to tighten my stools up, this seemed to help greatly. I quite often have iffy days especailly when I first awake in the mornings, but again just put this down to mild IBS problems.
Anyway back to the now, so without any warning, I will start feeling nauseous, then extremely nauseous, ill break out quickly from clammy to an extreme cold sweat. Ill be at the sink by now trying to vomit, normally I will throw up at the start, while trying to be sick at this point , ill go from cold sweat to bright red, flushed , then back to chalk white again. this happened about 6 times the other day, while trying to be sick.
After throwing up, all I can do is go lie down in bed, the pain is ridiculous.
I'll now be lying down in bed totally soaked from head to toe , shivering away for about 3 hours straight. I can also feel boiling hot while this is happening.
After the cold sweats and shakes die down, I'm just left with what can only be described as wave upon wave of extreme nausea, its practically with every exhale, so there is no respite. I can be up and down to the sink every 30 minutes or so trying to be sick at these points.
This period can last up to 12-14 hours then it will steadily go away, sometimes if im sick near the end, this will clear it completely.
To explain, I cannot do anything during these attacks, as im completely immobile, almost delirious with the pain, nothing helps, ive been in hospital before with this and they were giving me all sorts of anti sickness meds but nothing would scrath the surface.
Once the pain recedes, I feel perfectly fine, instantly, just as I was before the attack came on. Although saying that, the last two episodes have lingered on a bit for a day or two after (usually coming on again mildy in the afternoon of the next day)
Ive now has bloods tested for everyting, including Helicobator , and everyting has came back clear. Just waiting for an endoscopy appointment.
I'm curious if anyone has experinced anything similar? thanks in advance
