Hello All. This is long, so sorry but Im at my wits end. I started having GI issues in January of this year. In December of 2012 I went to the Dr. because I was getting hunger pangs after just eating. She said it was acid reflux and put me on Protonix. I took it for 2 weeks and then got off of it because I figured I didn't need it. I don't get sick. Haven't even had a cold in 2 years. Two weeks after stopping Protonix, I woke up in the middle of the night with what felt like a stomach virus. Horrible nausea and the need to have a bowel movement. No vomiting. After the bowel movement, I felt a little better but remained nauseous for about a week. Went back to the Doctor and then all of the tests began. Ive had and Endoscopy, H Pylori testing (blood and breath test), stool tests, seen a colon and rectal specialist, colonoscopy, Ultra sounds, CT scans, food allergy tests, etc. EVERY test came back negative. Finally I had a HIDA scan in May and they determined that my gallbladder was slow so I had surgery to remove it. A week later I woke up I the middle of the night with the same thing. The nausea didnt last for weeks like it did when I had a gall bladder but it still bothered me. Im still having these attacks in the middle of the night and the Drs think its IBS. But I dont have any pain, diarrhea or constipation. Ive been eating NOTHING but oatmeal, bananas, prunes, crackers and water for two months and thats on a good day. Ive lost 42 lbs since January. Now Im down to 94 lbs. Is this IBS?????? Somebody please answer. :(

I worry about what if bad things happen. What if I need someone yet have no one to personally call in emergency situations. It's hard not to be fearful at times wondering about the "what ifs" in life when I'm so alone. I hate this.
I like doing laundry, floors, but I hate to dust.
