I'm a 34 year old Female who has been experiencing attacks of pain in the Middle of my abdomen more toward the left that radiate into my back. The attacks as I call them, come on suddenly usually within an hour or two after consuming food that isn't bland such as Soup, and Saltines. I'm having them approximately once per week they are massively painful so much so I've been to the Emergency Room Twice, once in an Emergency Squad.
My history, I had Gastric bypass nearly 6 years ago and have kept the weight off. My gallbladder was removed in 1999 (14 years ago) I am very healthy low blood pressure etc. only thing that I seem to have a problem with is Anemia despite the fact that I take Iron, and Multivitamins daily.
The first time I visited the ER, I was really given the attitude that I was faking and seeking pain meds. They gave me a shot of Zofran and after a couple hours it subsided. They sent me home without doing any scans, pretty much said I must of ate something that didn't go down my new piping correctly, and sent me home. I didn't follow up with my doctor at that time as I agreed with the diagnosis. A month later, it happened again this time I was at work. The pain was so bad it was all I could do was lie on the floor and just cry. I had a hard time getting calm and begged the EMT for Oxygen because I was hyperventilating. Same again, Zofran send me home and you likely just ate something bad.
I followed up with my family Doctor and he referred me to a Gastro Center after doing some blood work and checking my Urine for Infection. All were normal. I went to the Gastro and we did an Ultra Sound which was Normal, then he scheduled me for an ERG Test which was also normal, no Ulcers or anything. Last week, he sent me for an MRCP looking for a Stone in the Common Bile Duct and it also came back normal.
I'm now frustrated. I'm ok as long as I don't eat anything other than bland diet. It's made me depressed as I'm afraid to eat anything outside the home with fear that this will happen. On average I have an attack like this about once per week. I've been lucky to have been at home so I can scream it out. Then I'm just exhausted.
Anyone have anything similar or advice?
