I am a 26 yr old female who up until I had my first child 11 months ago, was perfectly healthy. About 6 months ago, I started to get an intense burning in my chest that was unresponsive to OTC and prescription proton inhibitors and acid reducers. Had an endoscopy, they found no GERD, no ulcers and diagnosed me w/ "non-ulcerative dyspepsia". But that is only part of the problem. What's worse than the constant burning, is constant diahhrea and the most HORRIBLE stomach cramps that feel like I'm in labor all over again! The cramps wake me up in the middle of the night and I break into a cold sweat until I pass diahhrea. The only thing that helps is Immodium (I LOVE IMMODIUM!!). My gastro has ran EVERY test known to man! No celiac spru, no guardia, no increased white blood cells. The tests come back completely normal. I drink 3 ensure drinks (350 cal/ea) a day, and eat meals, but I can't gain a single oz! I'm only 99 lbs now! The gastro thinks it's IBS but it could still be Crohn's and the only way to diagnose is w/ colonoscopy. Is this true? Any advice is GREATLY appreciated! I'm giving up!!
