I have been suffering for 21 years with this thing. I have no idea what it is and doctors are not helping. When I was 8 years old I started regurgitating my food and getting bubbles on my scalp. Doctor said it was anxiety and I would grow out of it. (That didn't happen) At 15 I started getting swellings. I'd wake in severe pain. My shoulder wouldn't work or my knee would be swollen, or my ankle would be swollen. I went to an emergency room to be told it's Tendonitis. At 15 I thought that made sense by it still happens and it's certainly not from over using the tendon. At 20 I saw another because I have difficulty sleeping. Said I had depression, then said I was too happy and stated that it was Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It explains my tiredness, my swellings, but not really my stomach issues. I stopped seeing him when his nurse said I was pregnant because my ALWAYS irregular period was irregular. They also sent me to a GYN who told me my cervix was bleeding and that I had a STD. No STD and was my cervix bleeding? At this point I feel doctors are just complete idiots. At 25 I saw an ENT because of sinus issues and lumps under my tongue and on the sides near my jaw bones and tonsil stones. When I wake I have a stuffy nose, water in my ears, and my pillow is soaked through with drool, and I have hideous breath. First ENT said it was allergies and that there was nothing to do for me and nothing showed up on my Cat scan. Second said GERDS and prescribed me some drugs. Drugs didn't work, diet didn't work. Saw another doctor at 28 because I now have a lump near my left rib cage that protrudes out and is firm, when I have sex it feels like my fiancé's penis is hitting some things and they sometimes move to hit the lump near my rib cage. VERY uncomfortable. The doctor who was in the office had me waiting an hour and never showed. I'm still regurgitating, getting swellings, have my sinus issues, have all the lumps, am getting these liquid bubbles on my cheeks near where my wisdom teeth use to be, tonsil stones, and NOW I'm getting these mysterious shooting pains. Sometimes it feels like someone is pushing my lungs up and against my rib cage, sometimes it's a stabbing in my stomach or my feet. I'm starting to gain weight because it makes me feel better physically. When I try to diet and eat properly I get REALLY bad heart burn, anxiety issues where I bite off my nails and bite my lips and cheeks, and fall off the wagon to get the pain and anxiety to stop. I'm at my wits end. Anyone have any idea what this could be or what I can expect next to come?
I'm 29, of healthy weight though that's starting to change, female
