HI there, I want to say that this site is amazing, like a breath of fresh air I have felt so alone. Where to begin all this I guess started last September when I was having sever pains after eating, and diarrhea. Finally one of the docs said it's my gall bladder malfunctioning and jus constantly contracting. So I had it removed, but after that the diarrhea never really went away nor did the stomach pains. So back and forth to the docs, can I mention that I do not have health insurance? So while the bills raked up I wasn't getting better. So I was fet up with doc and put myself on a low fat, no gluten diet and it seemed to work until August when I would rectal blee, vomit blood, diarrhea and pass out due to abdominal pains. I went to the ER twice and they put me on Bentle and told me to go see a gastro. Not really helpful .I finally have a great Gastro and I'm on Asacol 3 tablets three times a day. I keeping up with the same diet. But the pains are back right where my gall bladder use to be, it stabbs to my spine and is there about
18 hours a day. I get aweful hot flasses, sweats that can soak through any outfit its almost embarrassing but seeing as I've vomited all over floor at work and pooped myself i can deal with sweats. But I've just about
had it. The doc gave me Tramadol but it doesnt totally help just makes me dizzy. I've never been a negative person, but I find that sometimes I cannot stop from crying and hating my life. As of Nov I have health insurance and get to have a whole slue of tests. But I just feel so alone, and helpless. I can't seem to find the words to explain it to my family and boyfriend, they think I have a diagnosis I'm better. I'm not terrified of a worse diagnosis at this point I'm scared to death of never feeling better. Is this normal?
PS Sorry about the spelling it's late and I haven't really slept well in two days
