I have never used one of these sites before, but my sister told me I should try. Im 23 years old and for the past 6 weeks Ive been sick with no diagnosis yet. I have been throwing up, severe pain all over my stomach and whatever I eat makes me feel completely nauseous and bedridden. Pretty much the only thing I can keep down are crackers, bread and bananas and sometimes salad. I have lost 12 pds in about 3-4 weeks which is a lot for my tiny figure as I only weigh 105 now...

I have had numerous blood tests, urine tests, I have had a scope, an ultrasound and have seen 5 different Doctors and everything has come back normal. Im starting to feel like its in my head which is making me so upset because I know these symptoms are there.. There is just no name for them...

My stomach really hurts me, to touch. I cant have any pressure on it, or I can't lie on it. When my doctors touch my stomach it brings me to tears... I did more blood tests today and am scheduled for a CAT scan sometime soon..

The pain varies from sharp pains, to gnawing pains, to constant pain to feelings as if my stomach is eating itself. For the first two weeks of being sick I had absolutely no appetite but would force myself to eat.. Now I have a mixture of constant nausea and hunger... but still have trouble eating. i tried to have dinner last night, I was throwing up last night and was bed ridden today with severe nausea. Seems like the only thing that helps is not eating...

I am not sure if it is IBS, but thats what my doctor may be speculating. Anyway if anyone could help me out as to what your symptoms were like when you were diagnosed or what tests you did or how long it lasted that would be great.

Ive missed tons of school, work and placement because of this and the couch is starting to form to my body which Im not too happy about lol...

Hope to hear from someone soon

Hopefully the CAT scan will finally give you some answers if nothing eles has so far. I'm assuming you've also had your stool tested? Do you ever have blood in your bowel movements?

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
