hi i post here sometimes.I have been sick for 8 years. Lately I have been having terrible stomach trouble. Nausea, pain and most recently TERRIBLE acid reflux. You see, I was off antibiotics for a while which I now see was a mistake. I have lost almost 50lbs since the winter. My fam thinks I have an eating disorder not my choice or anything just because I'm nauseous alot I dont like to eat and most anything makes me nauseous or gives me terrible acid reflux. I was recently was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome which my fam and i think is from the lyme or bart.I take zofran, donperadome, and recently nexium. My mom is getting worried (well she's been worried for a while now) as I dont have any more weight to lose. My doc told me I;m malnutritioned and need to gain 4-5 lbs. I gained 1 but than lost 2. I'm weak and everything that comes with malnutrition. I have just started takin Levaquin which i hope will start helping my stomach very soon. Do you know of any appetite stimulints that will get me to eat? Any advice or anything that might help me gain weight or stomach tricks???? My mom and I are trying to stay calm but its hard. HELP!!!!!
