Hello all - I'm new to the forums here as I'm starting to get frustrated not only with my condition but also with the inability or unwillingness of the doctors I've seen to diagnose my ills. So, here goes:
I have been experiencing some troublesome symptoms which could be related to IBS, Celiac Disease or something along those lines. I had to run to the ER thinking that I was having a heart attack. Pain in the chest, problems breathing, numbness in both arms followed by dizziness and feeling of blacking out. Well thankfully after stress test and CT scans and ultrasound of the heart all is fine in that area. But I still experience dizziness, feeling of fainting, some feeling of air or liquid coming back up in my chest followed by a almost state of fainting. I have realized that if I take a gas relief pill it goes away. I also have a bad digestive tract. Food comes out sometimes exactly as it came in, such as salad and tomatoes. I don’t eat too many carbs… Just white cheddar popcorn or pretzels (no pasta , rice , potatoes). Just mainly vegetables and lean proteins. I am scared because I have not felt healthy since last September.. I am never 100%. Sometimes I walk around feeling like I have vertigo… I also get a very bad flavor in the mouth almost thinking that it could be bad breath, it does not last long just few minutes and then goes away. Could you please let me know if you have experienced any of these symptoms. I am 31 years old , not overweight I work out 5 to 6 days a week and I am also eager to become a mom. I just want to be as healthy as possible before-hand. I have seen a couple GI docs and neither has listened to me very attentively and no diagnosis has yet been made. It is quite obvious though that I’ve got some form of a GI problem.
PS: I just had an endoscopy done last week which did not reveal anything alarming!!
Thank you for your help. Anything will be appreciated.
Does this sound like it could be IBS?
