ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I'm seeking help today because I have been in and out of hospitals and ER's for a year now and still don't have an answer as to why I'm sick. I've been experiencing cyclic vomiting episodes about once a month, this happened as well as back in 2011. My stomach will start hurting for a few days prior and then eventually the pain gets so bad that the nausea and vomiting start and wont stop. After being taken to the hospital, I also always find out that my white blood cell count is extremely high. Which then, they pump me full of every antibiotic possible and yet the numbers still don't go down. I have taken so many CT scans, MRI's, xrays, ultrasounds, and other testing with all results coming back clear. I have been diagnosed with gastroparesis, IBS, GERD, anxiety, depression, endometriosis, and also have had my gallbladder removed. My cabinet is full of every nausea medication possible as well as bottles and bottles of tried and failed prescriptions. This has impacted my life so much. Currently I'm out on disability leave because I can't work due to my condition and it makes it nearly impossible to make any sort of plans.
