hi, this is my first post on here so im hoping someone will read this and can help me as i am at my ultimate witts end!!
i am a 26 yr old female. im healthy and not overweight.
for he past 6 years, i have suffered with chronic bloating of the upper abdomen. it first started off when i ate a chicken burger one evening and i was in such pain that i went to the hospital. they tested my urine and blood pressure and said nothing was wrong, so sent me on my way.
over time i found that certain things i was eating e.g bread chicken nuggetts, crisps, pasta, my top abdomen would balloon up and i would be in serious agony for a couple of hours. i continued to visit my doctor who tested me for celiac, lactose, gluten etc which all came back negative. to help myself from the pain i cut out dairy bread etc and went gluten free for a long time.
then one afternoon after sunday lunch, the most severe, most horrendous stabbing shooting pain came across my right side just under my breast and across my abdomen ballooning me to the size of a six month pregnant women. it was so severe that i went to the hospital where i was examined nd then sent to see a consultant straight away. i had a scan done as they suspected gall bladder problems/stones. this came back that they were miniscule and not an issue. they gave me pain killers and sent me home the next day.
that was last year, since then iv still had continuos trips to the doctor who asked me to try different diets, different excercises, different tablets, i seen multiple doctors but i just get told that its my diet.
I am battling with anxiety alsoaround my health and have been called a hypochondriac but i just know 100% something isnt right!!
i went for another scan wednesday around my gall bladder, liver and upper abdomen, just for a check up so now am awaiting results but i just cannot take anymore of the bloating or agony im in.
please!! does anyone have any ideas or any help would be much appreciated.
