problems from top to bottom - poor saliva production, irregular esophageal motility with muscle overlaying? entrance causing swallowing problems. Hiatial hernia, autoimmune gastritis (no acid production), gastroparesis, usually chronic constipation with at least one episode of small intestinal blockage. diverticulosis and anal fissures. Bloating, cramping ranging from achy to OMG.
Occasional nausea, but rare vomiting, very poor appetite, but weight has stayed stabile?
Other symptoms - fatigue, occ. shortness of breath, brain fog, dry eyes, some balance problems. Feels like my internal organs are pulling out of me when I go to restroom. Had prophylactic hysterectomy/ovaries about 1 year ago.
Went to ER last week for severe pain in left side - they
said it was muscle strain, but it felt like hernia - there was a definite bulge at the focal point of pain.
Other conditions - BRCA2+, chronic kidney stage 3, disk degeneration, multiple environmental allergies
GI Dr knows I am in pain, but won't do anything until she "sees me in clinic" which is still about 2 weeks away, will be 7 weeks she'll have let me hang. Can't get other dr's to do anything - it's GI problem, tried to see other GI dr - would have to wait till Oct to get in! HELP!
