Frustrated with lack of answers

Hi Just joined today after reading some health issue stories and hoping I may be able to get some answers from fellow members.

After having countless blood tests, ultrasounds and CT scans I still can not get any answers on why in the last 5 months I have been feeling very unwell and indifferent.

Generrally feel like I am being poisoned at times.

Symptoms started with Prurits ( all over body prickliness) then a months later got hit badly with waves of nausea, acidic stomach, dizziness, weakness, jabbing and dull aching pain behind 2nd lower rib.

Have had blood test that suggest my liver and kidneys are good. Ultrasounds and two CT scans later can not find any thing sinister.

A stomach endoscopy could also not find any issues.

6 months on, have worked out that the waves seem to come 2.5 to 4 hours after each meal or as bladder fills.

After 5 months of tests the advice from my doctor is that there nothing wrong with me. And that it is all in my mind.

Pain in my right side around the liver, kidney area has to indicate an issue that no one can find.

Any suggestion on where to move forward from here.

I really feel for you. It took them a long time to diagnose me. Was diagnosed with fatty liver last year after MRI, gastroscop and colonoscopy . Then last November I had a liver biopsy which diagnosed Nash ( non alcoholic steatohepititis). Was told diet could reverse it, not in my case! I see consultant next week to are where I go from here. My advice is to really push for answers as it's not in the mind, I was first told mine was muscular!! Please take care. Lots of love Lynne xxxx


Very much appreciated Lynne and all the best to you as well.

Will now research that cause and see another doctor I think and hopefully get this infliction sorted out.
