Hi - new here. Since April 4th (yes, I can pinpoint the exact day) I have had issues. In the past 5 months, I've been to the ER three times, have been to my regular doctor more times than I can count, have had a colonoscopy and EGD done. I even suspected ovarian cancer - had a complex cyst on left ovary. I just came back to work after a month off for surgery to rule out ovarian cancer (which was ruled out).
I woke up the morning of April 4th with a belly that resembled being 7 months pregnant. That has never gone away. I had abdominal pain on my right side, right around my ovary (which is why I suspected OC). The pain eventually went away, but then I developed a whole new laundry list of symptoms: nausea, horrific heartburn, acid reflux (which I was able to control for 20 years), virtually no appetite - if I eat anything my stomach just grinds and I get incredibly nauseous, burning at the back of my throat and a horrible taste in my mouth.
Colonoscopy came back clear and the surgery I had showed no signs of cancer. Last week, I had the EGD, hoping I'd finally have some answers. My GI took 3 biopsies: one for suspected Barrett's esophagus, one for suspected ulcer and one to test for Celiac disease. All came back negative. I have gained 15 lbs. despite not eating very much. I have headaches almost constantly. I know this is not my appendix or my gallbladder as both of those were removed. It has nothing to do with my uterus as I had a hysterectomy in 2007. I don't know how much longer I can go on without answers.
Does anyone else suffer the same symptoms? Were you diagnosed?
