Need help digestive problems and muscle tendernessHello Dr. Sameer,
I've read posts on the website and am intrigued by your homeopathic knowledge. I am desperate to find relief I have been suffering 10 years nothing is working. I've had doctors perform tests like EGD, colonoscopy, blood tests, urine tests, x-rays, mri scans, etc. They keep finding nothing. I have seen regular doctors, gastro doctors, and even a GYN, thinking it might be related to female hormones.
Anyway, here are my symptoms:
Most prominent/bothersome: Digestive problems such as bloating and gas (all the time), sour stomach and burning sensation in upper abdomen (not usually heartburn in throat), waking up tired, waking up with sour stomach, bowels usually move in morning but with pain and discomfort. I have been in ER twice with severe left sided pain in bowels that would come in peaking waves, the colonoscopy revealed nothing. Pain was very sharp and intense. Thankfully it has not been an issue seems chocolate or large amounts of dairy may trigger it. I am off and on with fatigue, mornings are the worst. I have tender muscles all over but no stiffness in morning. My muscles have been tender non-stop, it does not come and go. I had a tentative diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and of course doctors always say IBS when they can't figure out bowel problems. I have seen an allergist and am negative for food allergies. Muscles tire easily, often sore after any kind of exercise for several days. I also have heart palps but they come and go. Skin is often dry and eyes too. Hair tends to fall out easily but not in clumps.
For personality I am easily irritable. My mood goes up and down. I do not like dealing with other people. I have trouble sleeping but some nights I sleep ok. Do not feel sleep is restorative. Anxious mind often keeps me awake, irritated by slightest noise when trying to fall asleep.
I often suffer with fears and bad thoughts. I live in fear of my body now as I feel it has turned against me.
Ok this is all I can think of now. Your advice is greatly appreciated.
