Over the past year I've read two of Sarno's books and a few other mindbody type books in an effort to find relief or at least hope that one day this will pass. Can anyone relate to these symptoms? How likely is it that my symptoms are a type of TMS? Over 4 years ago symptoms began. Symptoms include: -mixture of somewhat nebulous heartburn sensations -sometimes burning tongue/ burning soft palate -sometimes strange tastes...sour taste in back of throat (not bile/vomit tasting...just sort of sour) -sometimes white coating on tongue or gritty texture in way back of throat -stomach fullness sensations that last hours and hours and hours after a meal -burping every 4 minutes following meals for hours and hours -feelings of tightness across my lower rib cage and upper stomach -no hunger pains...can eat normal portions but don't ever get that "I'm hungry must eat" feeling -stomach feels tight, uncomfortable, don't want to bend over, feels somewhat bloated but definitely not bloated -even drinking a large glass of water leaves me feeling very uncomfortable for a long time. -eye floaters developed when symptoms began as well During these 4 years I've had a full GI workup (ultrasound, cscan, hyda scan, gastric emptying study, 2 endoscopies, colonoscopy), tried lots of different alternative med treatments, diets, soft tissue work, liver cleanses, supplements, etc, etc. No medications for stomach issues have helped. The only thing that I thought might help a little are digestive enzymes but now i'm not even sure they help. I do not have headaches, muscle weakness, pain that keeps me from daily life. I have normal energy. I am an avid crossfitter. I have 4 children and quite by surprise became pregnant with #4 about 6 months after symptoms began. I can take care of all of life demands BUT I'm very very uncomfortable 90% of the time which makes me not have patience with my kids and truly has sucked the joy of life out of me. I would do anything...give anything to feel normal again. I hate that my kids are all 4 years older since these chronic symptoms began; I hate that they know mommy doesn't feel good most of the time; I hate that I am not the wife or mother that I wanted to be. I don't feel guilty because I know I'm doing the best I can with the way I feel but I'm just so angry that this has taken control of my life...in many ways has taken my life away. I'm angry that no one can find anything wrong; I hate that to the world I look amazingly healthy and have a picture perfect life, I hate that I don't know a single person with chronic (all day everyday...NOT EPISODIC) stomach issues, I hate that I don't have a diagnosis....at least then I'd have something to fight. The only management of symptoms that works is not eating...or eating very little because typically as soon as I eat a small meal I feel awful for just about the entire day. When I do eat a normal meal the only relief I get is lying down on my back either breathing or napping. I have very little body fat because I don't eat much during the day and I crossfit on a regular basis. BUT, I do eat a normal size healthy dinner and ice cream. I have plenty of energy and since I don't get hunger sensations not eating during the day isn't difficult. My GI Doc is most concerned about weight and says i'm in a catabolic state of burning more than I'm putting into my body but I don't really know what to do about this because weight is NOT my concern and whenever I try to trick my body and re-train my stomach to maybe get use to eating 3 normal meals a day it leaves me too uncomfortable to take care of daily tasks, be a mom, etc. So I can't do that. I know that there are so many people living with pain that puts them in bed all day long...or with disabilities that leave them unable to leave the house. So I am grateful to be able to participate in life but I'm so very very uncomfortable all of the time. There is just something(s) not right in my stomach. Anyway, not sure exactly why i'm posting...I guess just wondering if anyone has ever had or heard of someone with these types of symptoms that did recover. My mom and all docs just think it will go away someday as mysteriously as it came but it's so hard for me to have hope because it's been so chronic for over 4 years. I'm looking for a real life miracle at this point. Thanks for reading and sorry so long winded.
