I feel just like I have tired all initiatives for a health care provider to help me, and wish to listen to from someone that has possibly experienced something similar. Since April unintentionally I have lost 37 lbs, and it has really began to freak me out. Everything started last November with pain inside my upper left ribcage, which I personally think is my spleen.
About once I began to experience daily diarrhea. Between November and January I visited the doctor three times for the pain, each and every time being identified as having a kidney illness, although I was not experiencing those types of symptoms and all 3 UAs returned clean. I took the antibiotics Irrespective, although I am still without alleviation even today.

Fast forwards to April, I lost 23lbs in four weeks. Between that and the diarrhea along with the pain I decided to visit a GI doctor. I had a colonoscopy. All clear. Around that same time, I put a LOUD pop in my remaining ear. At the time I thought that it was somehow my ear drum.
Go to the doctor. He says my ear is fine but provided me antibiotics ” just in case”. 🙄 I required the antibiotics anyhow, as I’d do anything for alleviation. They didn’t help. Returned, got more antibiotics for no justification. Took those. That still didn’t help. I went to go see an ENT. All he do was spend 3-5 minutes beside me.
He only looked in my ear canal and said it looked healthy. This month Fast ahead to. I put the same pop sound in my own right ear. Now they both hurt like crazy. If I had to do you know what was wrong with them, it would be patulous eustachian tubes. I am miserable from my ears.
It is so awful. Dr. Google says fabulous tubes are caused by sudden weight loss. Is practical, but why am I loosing so much weight. I can feel myself shrinking actually. ETA: not that it matters, but I wasn’t incredibly overweight to start with. I am 5ft9 and originally weighed 192 last night at the physician I weighed 155 even.
Some of this is understandable; surgery in an exceedingly heavy girl is more challenging and requires quite a little much longer than in a woman of average size. Doctors want to avoid a crisis situation where every second matters to save a child, and especially so in a female whose comprehensive adipose layers may require more time to access the baby to begin with. Therefore, doctors may be more susceptible to intervene in women of size early, before things get to a crisis situation.
