Customer Question
My daughter has had...

My daughter has had episodes with her stomach for the last 6 years she's been to repeated doctors don't want to find any answers but she gets swollen nauseated short of breath sometimes her legs feel numb and she passes out once in awhile but we still haven't found any answers is there anything that we could do to find out what we're dealing with

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

It's not that the doctors don't want to find any answers they just can't seem to find any answers she's had repeated tests but they're still no answers

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

She has a bad back and she's had to take medication for pain for quite a few years and also she's diabetic

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
My daughter will be here Friday morning so I will be able to answer questions better. I had to take her to the ER so she could deal with the pain and dehydration she is always extremely weak and drowsy for around 2 days afterwards. The episodes are getting more frequent
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 4 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

The pain you mention is only in the back ?

Or does she get the pain in the joints or abdomen ?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Her pain is in her abdomen she gets bloated so bad then she starts vomiting and she tries to manage the pain at home as long as she can but she eventually always ends up in the ER they give her pain medication put an IV in for a while and then send her back home and she doesn't eat for about 2 days and then it seems to be better for a short time and then same thing happens again

Thank you so much

YOU CAN SEE that IT MENTIONS in your report :

Focal Colitis and Cryptitis in the intestines!

Why would the doctors not think that this causes her symptoms There is a definite co relation between these symptoms and the local intestinal inflammation Symptoms like nausea bloating can be due to that and can subsequently lead to passing out or feeling numb.

I would strongly recommend that her condition needs to be treated with Sulfasalazine group of medications to remove the inflammation. This is not a pain killer but will remove the inflammation out.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.
