This is so frustrating.
I finally went to the hospital yesterday (still no insurance, but I said what the heck, I'm dying over here). They basically just took an xray and claimed they didn't see anything. The doctor referred me to two other specialists, one for my more recently developed stomach issues and one for my back. They did so because they can tell that both of these areas have problems, but they are not detectable by the x-ray and require an mri (for my back) and probably an Endoscopy (stomach).
Also while I was there they said that I was very dehydrated (which slightly shocked me, but then I remembered the bouts of diarrhea I had been having). I told them I can't really help that, because water (and some others liquids like fruit juices) and most foods makes me nauseous lately. Then I get this pit in my throat that clogs it, and I can't eat past a few bites/sips. If I try, I'll throw up. So they gave me an anti nausea dissolving tablet and monitored me for a little while, saw the same thing I saw, but didn't actually help beyond that. They just discharged me.
Hours later after I had been discharged, the dissolving tablet kicked in and helped for a little while.
I forgot to mention some really important crap while I was there, even though they lightly hit these subjects, so I'm going to list it here for the clinic I'm going to tomorrow.
-Heart flutters/palpitations: (when I was at the hospital the woman asked me if I was nervous, for some dumb reason I said yes... I mean, I was a little, but not to the point of worrying..) She said oh okay, because your heart rate is REALLY high. Lately my heart rate has been seeming fast all the time.. even at home.
-Sharp pains in the top of my stomach: Especially if I try to drink water.
-Cramps at the bottom of my stomach: I don't get periods, so that's not what that's about.
-Head aches and head feeling like a "water balloon". It litterally feels like I sometimes have water floating around beneath my scalp.
Those were not all my symptoms, just the ones I didn't mention the first time.
With this stomach thing, It hurts to sleep in every position. Especially on my stomach. It feels like laying on a brick. Yesterday morning I finally had enough and just laid on my side, which also hurt. It was picking the lesser of 4 evils. (the other side - which hurts worse, stomach - hurts the most, and my back doesn't hurt but breathing in this position sucks monkey balls).
It's 5:40 am and I still haven't been to sleep, because I tried to drink water, which signaled the sharp stabbing pains to begin... When I breath after drinking water, it is a nightmare...
Ugh... see what happens.. The more I try to be healthy and workout and live right, the more I get hurt/sick/internally damaged... My body is throwing a fit, lol.
