I was wondering if somebody can help me. In the summer of 2013 I started to feel nausea, no appetite. In the summer of 2012 I experienced nausea and reflux and with 2,5 months of Omeprazole that was fixed and after that had no problems at all. So when symptoms began in 2013 I called my GP and asked again for Omeprazole, thinking it was the same problem and this would fix it. Unfortunatly it did not, I had the most horrible stomach pains and nausea, constant feeling of going to throw up. I visited my GP a lot, I've got multiple medicines (Omeprazole, Zantac, a drink that coats your stomach lining, Domperidone, metoclopramide, all of this in a high dose), nothing worked and I was feeling really awful. So I was referred to a specialist, got an ultrasound of the belly, everything looked okay. Faeces test for H. Pylori, negative (was really surprising to me because all the symptoms were like mine). Finally they planned a upper endoscopy, without sedation (only throat numb spray), this was the most horrible experience of my life. It was a student who did this procedure, it felt like I was dying, couldn't breathe. I was in total panic, after 4 times of trying (the student and the 'real' specialist) I said I couldn't do it. This was a really traumatic experience, I was anxious for a week and promised myself I would never do this again.
The symptoms stayed and this summer (2014) I went to a GI specialist. Again an ultrasound, nothing wrong. Tested my faeces to look for pancreas problems, all normal. I've got my faeces checked again for H. Pylori and again negative. Got a blood test for some food allergies, all negative. Faeces test for parasites negative. I'm already eating Paleo (as far as I can eat). Lost weight of course. They offered me another upper endoscopy but only thinking about it gave me almost a panic attack, I can't do it and a sedation is not enough for me (as you are still awake).
I'm having so much pain, the worst nausea (always feeling like I'm going to throw up). I'm taking lemon juice the first thing in the morning and sometimes after eating, this doesn't do a thing. Tried Beatine HCL with pepsin and that didn't work, got so much pain (don't know if it was from this for certain), I stopped taking it. Tried mastic gum and it made it worse.
Being 'subclinical hypothyroid' for 6 years I noticed my blood results were never that bad before. So I finally got a treatment and am now on 50mcg Levo for 3 weeks. Will get a blood test next week. I don't know if it's my thyroid that is causing this, I'm hoping it is..
As it feels like my stomach is inflamed (or maybe an ulcer?) I'm doubting if I should ask my GP again for medicine like Omeprazole. It didn't do a thing before but I'm so desperate at the moment. I can't go out of my house because of this, any bad smell or if I move to much makes it so bad I can't even describe. I am crying a lot of this, feeling like giving up to be honest.
I'm sorry for this long post, maybe some of you got some advice.
