At 26 years old due to this medical condition I feel I have lost ALL quality of life.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
In feb. 2019 I had the stomach flu. It lasted a few days regular stomach flu. Ever since Feb. almost after every time I eat I become violently sick. I dry heave, have abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea. I have been sleeping on the couch because I am unable to lay down due to the severity of the pain and I have to sleep with a bag next to me just in case I vomit. I have lost 13 pounds since Feb and weighed 87 pounds a few weeks ago. My hair at this time is also falling out. After the stomach issues started around mid May I began having panic attacks and paralyzing anxiety. The anxiety lasts from the minute I wake up to the minute I go to sleep. I have anxiety all throughout my work and school day. My insides shake constantly and when the panic attacks happen I feel like I enter anther world and for the rest of my day I am shaking and foggy. My job asked me to step down recently from a job I worked really hard for because I was missing too many days from work due to being sick. I have seen a gastro, endo, and a NP and also have an appointment with a rheumatologist. The gastro said he found nothing in all of his tests and all the endo found that my B12 and Vitmain D were low. The NP prescribed me L- glutamine, B12 shot, 50,000mg of Vitamin D and antibiotics. Before I got sick I worked full time, went to school full time, and have been planning a wedding. I had adventure in my life and got engaged in Nov. I can barely leave my house now. People are constantly telling me that I don't look good and I am starting to look sick. My wedding is in January and my fear is that this is going to ruin that day. Please help me.
