I have not been on a long time but have read forum off and on. I have struggled to work and live some what normal raising 3 teens on my own, 1 who graduated last may. I have not got any help from dr.s but from myself. I have recently tested x2 very high for the "Brewers Yeast" panel. But last GI doc says it's bull and said all this could be mentally triggered. I wont repeat what I told him!! I work with dr's everyday I know a push off. Anyways my reg. M.D. has given me darvocet for bad stomach flare ups and 1 ativan at night. I took prednisone for a while and a GI dr said it was bad if im not offically diagnosed. I did get off them, sometimes I felt better and then they made me feel worse. I have a Nov. appt. with a Chrons specialist.
I live on crackers, water, creamy peanut butter on bread, boiled chicken, mash potatoes, and maybe peas, and green beans. I have joint pain now, my teeth are cracking, gums bleeding and sores on gums, lw back pain constant, and left side pain constant with burning and gassy feeling pretty much 24/7 . I want to have pill cam done that what Im gonna ask for. From my past notes I do work for a ob/gyn dr. Last year I was on 2 month leave and was put on liquid diet for 3 wks I thought I was gonna die. I vomited nothing but bile for weeks and self healed my self and quit all meds. My reg MD no's somthings wrong I just cant get the right doc. Basically Im so tired and weak from not eating, blood sugar drops always, I also have left arm weaknes and dexterty problems for months. This has been going on 3 1/2 yrs and still no help(hopefully in Nov.) with blood test to help. It has destroyed my life and my relationships. I cant hardly go anywhere out of my town or just to work and home. I do best if I dont eat all day. And finally I think the depression of this is finally taken a tole on me. I just want to know if anyone else feels this way and has had simular problems. Thank you all for what you say on this site, it helps people like me.
