My name is Jenna, I'm a teenager, and I've had so many health problems in the past couple years. I hope y'all can help me feel better, I noticed many of my symptoms are the same as many people here.
I'll try and keep my life story short. My symptoms: GERD, nausea, post-nasal drip, excess saliva, upset stomach or the feel of slime in my stomach, bloating, burping, food sitting in my stomach for hours & hours, occasional heart palpitations or skipping beats, sensetivity to smell and taste (I get nauseous from smells easily), dull ache in stomach occasionally. And also I can hardly eat because of this stuff, and I'm a criticaly low weight.
I have a G-tube in because of my low weight, the feedings through it only make me feel worse. I can't eat because I feel so sick, but all this tube does is put food into my stomach so it doesn't help me feel better at all.
I only drink water, and eat bland foods such as oatmeal, cereal, eggs, and other foods that are pretty bland. I can not eat all day but still feel just as sick. I get full from drinking a small amount of water as well.
Here are the tests the doctors have done: Stomach emptying scan=normal, gallbladder scan=normal, allergies= pollen/trees, endoscopy= normal, celiac disease= normal, food allergies= none, h-pylori= normal, CAT scan= no brain tumor , ulcers= none.
I've tried allergy meds (didn't help at all), tums/maalox (helped a tiny bit for only 1 hour), prevacid (didn't seem to do anything at all), and I'm currently on Pepcid which helps a little but not enough.
I feel like I can't go on with this stuff much longer, I'm already skin & bones, any advice or encouragment would be great. I realise many of you are going through a lot worse stuff and for longer than me though, I pray you people get better. Thank you for reading this, sorry it's so long.
