So, I see your post is from several years ago, but on the off chance you or someone in a similar situation sees this, anything new to report? You've described my symptoms to a "T", except I am experiencing food going right through me at times (only in the mornings though).
I feel nauseous nearly all of the time, but it's always the worst in the morning through late afternoon. Sometimes by dinner, I feel well enough to eat a small meal and always get hopeful, like I'm getting better, only to go through the same thing all over again the next day.
I used to be a major food-y, and now I can only manage to eat about
1 small bite of food every 30 minutes throughout the day, and nothing tastes or sounds good anymore. I've only had my symptoms for about
3 weeks, but in those three weeks, I've lost 9 pounds and missed a lot of work, and know that I won't even be well enough tonight to take my little girl trick or treating. :(
Even though I don't feel the slightest bit better, I've had to return back to work, although occasionally have to find a spare office to lay down in because I'm exhausted and feel faint much of the time. It's also a psychological game of convincing myself that I'm not about
to throw up, especially when I'm helping customers at work or attempting a conversation with my loved ones.
Every panel screening has shown everything to be in a normal range (blood, urine, stool). I do have hypothyroidism, but it's been under control for the last 8 months. On another wellness forum, someone suggested that I have Lyme's, but I've never been bitten by a tick to my knowledge.
Some of the symptoms of a sluggish gallbladder seem to fit, especially because I often feel worse after eating, although I've never experienced any abdominal pain or cramping during this illness.
Every facet of my life is being affected. My 5 year old wants her mom back, and my husband has essentially turned into a single dad, having to take care of everything on his own.
3 weeks may not seem like a long time, but in these three weeks, I feel like I've lost everything that makes me, me. It's like have a 24 hour flu bug that will not go away, and none of my many doctor's appointments has given me any new information. Added line breaks for easier reading.
