Help to find a cure

Hi everyone I'm annmarie and I'm 40 years old. 10 years ago I went on holiday to Turkey and caught a bug. I thought I had food poisoning from the food. But it never went away. Over the years I've had many tests which resulted in no significance.  My pain is under my right rib and in to my back and right shoulder. The decision 3 years ago was to take out my gallbladder but that didn't fix things and only made me worse.  When it came out I was unable to eat felt full all the time. I have nausea, low blood pressure, no appetite, the pain is still in the same place. I have problems going to the toilet. I get these breathing issues where I'm full of gas and it pushes on my diaphragm.  I suffer from debilitating brain fog like I'm living in a dream all the time.  I had a gastric emptying study 3 years ago which showed severe delay of my stomach and bowel. The diagnosis was gastroparesis.  The past year I have been fed by a nasal feeding tube but I was unable to tolerate this and continued to loose weight. In june I weighed 6.5 stone, Or 91 pounds ,and was admitted for tpn. This is total parental nutrition and is fed via a line in my chest in to my heart. On speaking with my dr recently he does not know what's going on for me. The nhs are still unsure as to why I cannot eat or drink. So I'm now having to seek help myself.  I'm seeing a private dr who also works in functional medicine. So basically they help those where the drs cannot figure out what's going on.  This has to be paid out of my own pocket with the appointments costing 150 pounds at a time. Plus recent tests I'm doing costs hundreds of pounds plus having to travel to appointments etc.. I was also diagnosed in germany with compressions, there is still a possibility that I may have to go back out there for more testing. I have a few routes that I can consider with my health but the nhs has reached a point where further investigations are not an option for them. So I'm having to be strong and continue to fight for my health but I cannot fund this alone.  I'm quite a stubborn person and I dont ask for help unless I really need to. I'm in that situation now. Most of my days are at home as I dont have much energy or I'm too sick. I really want my life back again. So if anyone cant help contribute to my cause I would be eternally grateful in helping to get me better. Funds will go to doctors appointments, tests and medication.Thank you for taking the time to read about me.You can also follow me on Instagram @annie_needs_youMy Facebook page is help to find a cureMuch love Ax
