Pulmonary and gastric issues. Drs having difficulty diagnosing symptoms. Please help!!!
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
In 2013 I started seeing Drs about chest & abdominal pains. Usual bloodwork, imaging were done. Nothing was found. About 2 years ago I began losing weight unintentionally. I weighed 170lbs 2 yrs ago, I weigh 145 now. Lost lots of muscle mass. This was followed by burning abdominal pains along with stomach related symptoms listed above. Gastro said possible ibs. Was also having respiratory issues with associated symptoms above. Went in for testing. Told me I might have mild copd. I expressed my concern about my TB diagnosis along with breathing issues. Worried about pneumonia based on symptoms. Worried about neurological issues listed above. Also varying pains around liver/pancreas/gallbladder area. Srange pains on left side body(arm, & leg). Face drooping on left side. We had imaging, breathing tests, bloodwork, but no answers. I'm on state assisted insurance & was told it won't cover cost to run appropriate tests. So I then payed out of pocket to have some tests run. Tests included allergies for foods, seasonal, pets, etc. Tests for tick born diseases. All came back negative & cost me a fortune. I have a stack of bills & cant afford anymore testing & my insurance is reluctant to cover additional testing. I'm out of options and am worried I may never know what's really wrong with me. I'm responsible for taking care of my father who has demetia & can't do it properly anymore. PLEASE HELP FIND OUT WHAT's WRONG WITH ME!!!
