Lots of problems no answers, 10 years out



Recommended Posts

I had Rouen-y 10 years ago. I have had two kids since then and have regained all of my weight. Although that is a problem it's not the one that immediately concerns me. For a year I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with me. My symptoms are: sternum pain, chest pain and pressure, feeling of fullness when I haven't eaten anything, excessive painful bloating and gas, extreme sweating, racing heart, heart palpitations, and difficulty taking a deep breath. I have been to an allergist because they thought I had asthma, nope. I had an EGD and upper GI study done, they found little acid and a small hiatal hernia. The gastric bypass doctor put me on omeprazole which helps a little. My other doctor thought maybe it was anxiety causing the symptoms. I have tried numerous medications and have had tons of blood work! No one knows what is going on and they don't seem too inclined to figure it out. I can't keep feeling this way!!! Please help!

Have you seen an internist or a naturopath?

I've been having the breathing issue as well. I also couldn't yawn.
It started last summer, before surgery when I was under extreme stress.
From my personal research I think it's a psychological issue. Might be anxiety.
I read that most times it goes away again, but it will take months or even years.
Now that I'm having much less stress (still in recovering phase) it's almost gone.

I can recall a friend years ago describing this very similar story after regaining their weight years after bypass. IF I recall she lost 110 pounds. Then gained back nearly 100 after having her 2 children about 7 years later. And she felt full and had chest pain and easily winded. I wish I recalled more but I do know she went on Weight watchers and lost about 70 pounds and the feeling resolved. I know this is not an answer but I share so it might give you some hope. Perhaps if you lose the regained weight the symptoms will go away. Best of luck. So sorry to hear about the regains after all that hard work.
