So I have symptoms and have done for several years which have got dramatically worse over the last year particularly last few months. It's really bringing me down as I'm fed up of being ill all the time.
It first started four years ago when I began waking up at around 3-5am every night to suddenly have to run to the bathroom to vomit. After I vomited generally I felt ok and was able to go back to sleep. It stayed like that for about 2 years. Eating a big snack immediately before bed resolved that to a large degree. However 2 years ago I started experiencing nausea, dizzy spells, shaking in the day time too. If I didn't eat quickly I would feel like I would vomit or faint. Life started to revolve around food and snacking. I couldn't say have lunch late without symptoms if I was out.
Over the last year, as well as these dizzy spells that are resolved by eating I've started to develop a nagging feeling of nausea and being completely put off my food to the point the thought of it makes me feel sick sometimes (still eat it though) In the last few months I have become very pale (people are commenting) and have also had constipation and diarrhoea regularly for weeks now despite not changing my diet. Because of all this, I've gone up three clothing sizes. I eat three meals a day plus snacks in between.
Doctor has tested me for diabetes, thyroid, deficiencies, coeliac, h. Pylori, tried omeprazole for potential acid, I've been off the pill as a trial, tried a lactose free diet and all are clear/ have been ruled out. I will be having a laparoscopy to test for endometriosis though.
Any thoughts? I'm desperate for answers. I can't cope with this anymore. It's taking over my life.
