Hi I'm posting on my friend's acct since she showed me the site. Maybe someone here can help me out a bit.
I have been going to my GI doc for about 3-4 years, stomach issues. Cramping, diarrhea and just overall feeling sick. I had tons of tests done, finally they took my gallbladder out. That hasn't really made it better though, last 4 months it's getting alot worse. It's to the point that when I eat, no matter if it's salad with no dressing, or bagel, or cheeseburger, etc...within 30 mins I HAVE to get to a toilet, I mean NOW. My stomach cramps so hard I'm doubled over in pain crying.
I have had several colonoscopies, all normal. 2 wks ago I had the endoscopy and other "oscopy" s done. All normal, my GI is at a loss, and I feel he's given up. He said Prilosec, must just be acid reflux....this is NOT that. I've tried meds for acid a million times, they have done blood work for celiac and other stuff, normal. I'm just desperate for some answer.
Ruled out he said is IBS, Celiac, he doesn't think it's Crohns but not scientifically rulled out, no cancer, pre cancer, not gallbladder/stones. not ulcers.
