Malabsorption Syndrome Questions
Has anyone here suffered from a malabsorption syndrome? If so, what is/was the cause and how were you diagnosed?
I ask because I’ve been dealing with a 60+ lbs weight loss, chronic fatigue, abdominal pain, nausea, low grade fever, chills and night sweats for the past 7 months. No doctor has been able to diagnose me and no matter which medication I take, I cannot get relief!
My symptoms fit a malabsorption syndrome of the small bowel. My reasoning behind this is the abdominal pain kicks in within an hour of finishing a meal and subsides within 1-2 hours.
Aside from autoimmune diseases, what infectious agents would cause malabsorption in the small bowel?
Thank you for your time! 👍🏽
