Hello, i am a 21 year old relatively healthy guy with a problem that ive been expierencing for just over two years now. Feel free to ask any questions, i have nothing to hide and please excuse my Grammer. Alright so in October of 2007 i was admited to the hospital with severe abdominal pain, right where my ribs meet my abdomen in the middle to right side. I was kept for a couple day, felt better than discharged. I went months after that with no problems at all, expierencing random flare-ups of pain off and on until spring of 2009. In the spring these 'attacks' started frequenting my life, going from once every couple weeks, to a couple times a week. Usually they resulted in ER visits. In the mean time i have been dealing with constant diarrhea, different volumes of blood in my stool, and nausea almost every day. In this last 8 months or so i have had countless blood, urine and stool tests. CT scan, CT w/ angio, MRI, Ultrasound, two colonoscopys, two upper endoscopys, meckel scan, h pylori, 24 hour urine, 72 hr stool, two barium scan, and possibly more i cant pull of the top of my head. I recently returned from Mayo Clinic where the ran Ultrasound, CT, Colon and Endo scopes, gastric emptying, Camera pill, 72 hour stool. What they found was that my stomach is emptying into my intestines at twice the normal rate and not expanding to accompany any amounts of food. He said that this could possibly explained by a virus i'd had in the past that messed up the flow of my stomach. I am now on 2-40mg of nexium per day, 3 apple pectin 3x per day, Zofran for Nausea and Percocet as needed for pain. (I know people are going to raise the question of addiction and im not abusing it) Usually when the pain gets seriously uncomfortable i prefer to go to the ER for meds. The doctor says the Apple Pectin will help restore the rythem to my stomach and slow down its emptying. The nexium is for my heartburn which is now listed as Grade-C esophagitis. They have cleared me of Crohns and Colitis which is in my family. Found some small pockets in my colon, diverticulosis, that are very new, and should go away with a higher fibre diet. So the Doctor suspects the pain is stricly muscle-skeltal and he recommends i get involved with some frequent massages, accupuncture and see a chiropractor. His reccomendation is to stay away from the Narcotics, which i agree with, ibut have found no other source of relief thus far. My question is if anyone knows a different diagnoisis, or explanation for all this; any input of the medications? I also want to know if going to a pain clinic could be beneficial to me. Ask all questions, and i apologize if i missed posting any of the tests ive already had, or any other relevant information.
