- CASE FILE
I was a healthy, active 24 year old but for the past 1.5+ years I’ve had daily nausea and digestive issues. I can barely live my life.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I’ve had numerous tests/procedures (two upper edoscopies, stool, urine and blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, sonograms, skin biopsies) and everything has come back negative. I did a digestive motility test and I do have slow motility but have been put on Linzess for that. As a child I dealt with stomach issues but since late 2017 after a flight back from Ireland I’ve had nausea every day, as well as lower abdominal bloating, little to no appetite, fatigue, upset stomach, anxiety (mainly about being sick while trying to work and do everyday things) and severe depression as a result of being so sick without answers. I’m seeing 5+ doctors and have tried/am still on more medicines than I can count and nothing has helped. I can’t perform my job like I’m expected to and I don’t have the energy (or feel well enough to) exercise like I should be able to. These undiagnosed issues have driven me to thoughts of suicide - I can’t picture going on feeling like this.
