Abdominal pain, loss of appetite, weight loss, repeated infections

Posted by @claudiabrende, Wed, Aug 1 9:40am

38 year old with chronic stomach infections and nothing showing up on scans. Ugh. Weight loss, nauseous, abdominal pain and cramping, bowel changes, unexplained bruising, and repeated infections in the colon, intestine, and kidneys, unexplained bruising, and issues with getting my blood to stop after lab work. Please help if you have any insight. Most scans and test are turning up so I will be heading to Mayo in September but very scared I won’t make till then with symptoms increasing. I don’t know if this makes sense to anybody but at this point, I’m wondering if it a blood disorder, autoimmune with constant infections, or something rare that somebody on this site can relate to you. I also have had an increase in UTIs, and kidney infections,

Hello @claudiabrende

I am so sorry to hear that you are still dealing with these difficult to diagnose problems, but I am glad to hear that you have an appointment scheduled at Mayo next month. They have some wonderful doctors that use a team approach and I hope you report back after your appointment there.

Are you currently taking antibiotics for your infections (UTI and kidney)? Do you have anemia from the blood loss?

I look forward to hearing from you again before your appointment at Mayo next month. What is the date of your appointment?
