I’ve been having symptoms for about two years now. It started with bad sickness feelings, food coming back up (not just acid) and tiredness. I’ve been taking Omeprazole and currently take Pantoprazole. Done various blood tests, helicobacter H. pylori breath test, abdominal and vaginal ultrasound, gastroscopy with no abnormalities. I finally had a stool test which showed raised level of calprotectin (500) so am now awaiting a coloscopy.
My main symptoms at the moment are extreme tiredness, irregular stool textures often diarrhoea, a feeling that something isn’t right on my right hand side from ribs down to bladder, not actual pain/cramps and no weight loss. It also sometimes gets uncomfortable sitting like normal so I have to sit on my side as to not put weight straight down. I’m 26 with normal BMI, never had any allergies. Have tried all sorts of cutting out food, low fodmap diet, lactose etc and it doesn’t matter how good or how crap I eat, there’s been no improvement.
Has anyone here had similar issues? Have you found anything that works/any way of getting through the day without having a mental breakdown or falling asleep? Starting to feel like they are never going to figure out what’s wrong.
