My case is a lost cause.......

Hello all,
After almost 2 years of digestive distress I still have no answers. I have gone from GI doctor to GI doctor, Private Hospital to University Hospitals with no answers and no relief. I am a 21 year old, male, average 145 lbs (I can lose up to 25-30 lbs during flare up) my symptoms started with not being able to eat much at all without being in extreme pain or vomiting. I now with little to no warning get these "flare ups" that leave me constipated and vomiting. Anti-Nausea meds don't help, pain meds for the abdominal pain just stop me up. I have had numerous CT scans/Upper GI and Lower GI work ups and they all come back clear. It is almost like they need to scope me as soon as my symptoms occur. They refuse. Any Suggestions. I'm open to anything. I need to get back to living my life.

it sounds like severe ibs..it never gives you any warning when it is going to flare up, and it can last weeks, hours, or months...Feel better, rest when you need to
