What concerns me is that you've tried so many solutions, either food combinations or medications, in such a short period of time. No wonder your body is so confused! You're probably still suffering from side-effects from past medications too. I took anti-depressants for only two months, but it took over a year to get over the side-effects they caused.

I second what IrishHeart said - this sounds a lot like Crohn's Disease, especially the acid reflux and the inability to absorb fats. A friend of mine in college with Crohn's had those two problems severely.

Guys,

We are all suggesting the gall bladder as a problem to her, (I had the same issues with digesting fats before mine was removed, too)

but she says in her second post:

"I already had the HIDA scan and Ultrasounds of my liver done, the HIDA was negative"

In Crohn's they sometime use feeding enteral nutrition through a nose tube. There are pumps that can provide the feeding at a controlled rate while you sleep. That works well for some people.

Another thing you can try for H.Pylori is DGL (deglystereninzed licorice).

You have my sympathies, I am going through something similar myself, and know how hard it is trying to get answers and pinpointing what causes illness. Most of it has been said before, but I was just wondering, as you have given up dairy, have you check the ingredients in Nortryptalene? (and amitriptyline) as in UK this contains lactose and if you are intolerant to lactose, that could also be an issue.

What was the result of the HIDA scan? Anything below 35% and they'll take the gallbladder out.

I keep hearing about them so I looked them up.

http://www.mayoclini...da-scan/MY00320

"A HIDA scan is an imaging procedure that helps track the production and flow of bile from your liver to your small intestine. Bile is a fluid produced by your liver that helps your digestive system break down fats in the foods you eat.

A HIDA scan, which stands for hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid scan, creates pictures of your liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and small intestine. Cholescintigraphy, hepatobiliary scintigraphy and hepatobiliary scan are alternative names for HIDA scan.

A HIDA scan is a type of imaging study called a nuclear medicine scan. This means the HIDA scan uses a radioactive chemical, or tracer, that helps highlight certain organs on the scan. "

Basically, they make you lay still for an hour and a half (completely), inject you with some radiation stuffs, put you under the scanner and watch as it goes through (you can watch to if they have a moniter for it). After 1 hour has passed they come in with this huuuuuuuuuuuuge surenge and enject it into ya (stuff to flush the radiation out), then watch how quickly it leaves your gallbladder area.

So last week I was in the ER for right flank pain again. I thought it was my liver again since I was having so many problems with it and fats. They took a urine sample and said it looked like I had a UTI but they cultured it to be sure. So Monday the 17th they called and said it was definitely a UTI and called in some antibiotics. So I start Keflex Monday and starting Tuesday all my GI problems die down. No more gas, bloating or D/C. Reflux has even died down. So should I assume this is SIBO? I'm still waiting to hear back from my GI about this new development. I did a SIBO test but the results aren't due til next week. So will all of my symptoms come back when I am off the Keflex?
