I have been in the hospital numerous times over the last year and a half having every test my doctors could think to give me. I have had a colonoscopy, endoscopy, laparoscopy, MRI, CatScan, Ultrasound, blood tests and many other tests that I am not even sure what they are a called to try to figure out what's wrong with me. I suffer from abdominal swelling, (at times severe) abdominal pain, (constant, with episodes of severe pain) vomiting, (daily) and feeling nauseous 24 hours a day, headaches every day, blood in my urine, and rectal bleeding and most recently joint and bone pain. I had a bad experience years ago, after having a hysterectomy. Mistakes were made that caused serious injury to all my internal organs and I was never the same since that time, but over the last couple years all the above mentioned problems started happening to me and I am not sure what to do, or where to turn. My now former employer placed me on short term disability, then long term disability (at which point I lost my job, along with my health insurance) and i'm now in the process of filing for Social Security Disability. I am only a few days away from my 46th birthday, but feel like a 100 year old woman and don't know how much longer I can go on like this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
