User Profile
I have had upper left abdominal pain on and off for the last 2 years and have had an endo, colonscopy, barium swallow test, ct scan with and without contrast on my abdomen. I have also been experiencing enlargement of the left side of my neck, ringing in my left ear,extreme dizziness, weight loss, fullness and pressure on the left side of my head and in my left nasal cavity, pain in chest-left collarbone, shortness of breath, heart palpatations, blurry/fuzzy vision sometimes, upper left arm weakness and tightness in my calf muscles all occurring on the left side of my body, nothing on the right. I have had an mri of my head and it came back that I have a very small arachnoid cyst but was told not to be worried about. My abdominal contrast back in Jan of '10 showed what the doctors thought was a small bowel obstruction but when they went in and looked it showed that small bowel was disteneded and put me on iv fluids for 4 days and it eventually "cleared". I was not given any diagnosis

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Even though you had extensive GI checkup, I still feel, Crohn’s disease, lupus and diabetes, along with PCOD should be looked into. Please discuss with your treating doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
