ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
The medical conditions section is not working. I am seeking help because I have been to some of the best doctors in the Austin area before and after insurance and am losing hope since no one can ever accurately diagnose me accurately. I do not leave my house and really haven't since late 2014 unless I have a dr's appt. I have had probably 30-40 GI tests and procedures since 2009 and have been to 5 GI docs. I had 2 sinus surgeries in 2015(misdiagnosed 3x) for chronic sinusitis and both failed. Due to that I have lost all taste and smell and ability to breathe through my nose. I have burning now in my throat and on my tongue daily. I have had 2 colonoscopies and 4 EGDs. All they confirmed was GERD and a small hiatal hernia. I have taken a PPI now for 10 years for GERD. I was diagnosed by GI with methane SIBO in 2018 via breath tests as I've had SIBO symptoms since Oct 2016. My GI symptoms are refluxing and flatus 24/7. I am now on my 3rd course of abx for SIBO and still have symptoms. Also major weight loss-46 lbs since Oct 2018.
