I am not sure this is the place to post but it's very hard when everyone is unique to find chats that help answer questions. I have been sick for a year. I have seen many doctors had many tests and keep getting dismissed as psych. I am 37 and have no history of psych, I hate meds rarely took Advil, haven't drank even pop for over 9 yrs. This all started after a angiogram after a suspected heart attack. There were no blockages or evidence of one so they deamed it panic attacks. Even though I was on xanax morphine and benadryl 3 times a day I was still having symptoms. I had this unusual poking pain right below my left rib , I was very neasueas and lost 30 lbs in 10 days the nurse said the pain was likely from heparin shot. Months went by I lost more weight was unable to function very weak but labs stable so they told me to keep taking psych pills. Over the next few months I lost more weight the pain under the rib has gotten worse hurts in my back and feels like it's bigger. What once felt like a pin prick feels like I'm laying on a golf ball. I have tingling in legs. Sweating , light colored bowel movments, only go once a day not a lot. My skin has an odd rash on my chest and up my neck, my skin itches. One ct said I had sclerosing mesenteritis and a week later another ct it was gone. I feel like my intestines have slowed down and are numbed. I have another colonoscopy, I'm not sure what good that will do . I have this feeling I have cancer and all my symptoms match for it. Yet no test has shown it. Yet I get sicker every day. I weighed 165 and now 105 I barely leave the house I'm so tired. I have no ability to go to mayo or otherwise. If anyone has experienced these symptoms , what tests did you have to confirm how did you discover it. I have 4 kids Ionce was very active with I have lost already a year. If I'm sick I want to fight ,it's impossible to fight without a dx. I am scared. Any support or advice is appreciated.
