Hi everyone. My name is Anna and I am.on here trying to find anyone with similar symptoms/situation as my fiance. He is a 27 y/o white male weighing 150lbs. He has had 2 abdominal surgeries in the past 2 years.

Tests/xray/ct scan/blood work, etc ALWAYS come back negative or they do not show anything.

His symptoms started as:
Constant pain in his abdomen/bread basket, constant nausea and daily committing for a couple of hours.

The first surgery was an emergency. He has scar tissue all throughout his GI track. The had to 'clean' his entire GI track. He was symptom free for about 3 months when it all started again. He was in constant pain and vomiting constantly. 6 months after his first surgery, he had another to remove adhesions.

After that surgery, his symptoms did no improve and his kidneys began to fail. No doctor or hospital would biopsy his kidneys to see why they failed and he began emergency dialysis in August 2014.

Now here we are stuck in the same boat.

His BP will go from the high 200's to normal by just sitting up or standing.

He is a type 1 diabetic and when he is not having a flair up due to gastritis (his diagnoses) his sugars are controlled.

If anyone has been through this or is going through this, please reach out. I'm terrifies that I will lose him and I don't know where to turn to get him the help he needs.

Just to add on.. Whenever he eats he sweats profusely and he also sweats like that why he has the abdominal pain.

Hi Anna. I'm sorry to hear about what you are your fiance are going through! I can't imagine how difficult that must be. I'm speaking with some of our GI physicians and should have a response for you in the next few days.
