That doesn't sound fun at all Ninamebo! Don't worry about your HYDA scan though, it is easy (though they DID put me in a straight jacket type thing for mine...lol) and it often gives a lot of useful information to the doctors. Please don't give up and just deal with the pain though. I 110% understand the pains (financially too) of not knowing what is going on and having to do all kinds of crazy tests. I've had some sort of illness that causes face/mouth ulcers, reflux, hair loss, vomiting, severe stomach pain, constant burning in my stomach, extreme food sensitivities, sore joints, painful skin, and migraines since I was 13 years old, with new symptoms appearing sporatically. I've been undiagnosed this whole time, because each time they do diagnose me and try to fix my problem with medications, I react badly or a new symptom not fitting the diagnosis pops up. They've narrowed it down to a "possible autoimmune disorder" for me, but that is the closest we have gotten. I've even been told, to my face, that it is all in my head by one doctor. However, I know my body and you know yours. If you are having pain, there is a reason- and you should not just deal with it! It may take a long time...heck, I've been sick for five years, and often want to just give up on the tests and medicines, but what if a cure is out there?
Good luck with your Hyda scan and I hope they find something that works for you. What is your stomach pain like? Cramping? Burning? Feeling constantly empty? Tightness? Have they tried doing a barium test on you?
