Unexplained weight loss/abdominal pain

Asked for Female, 24 years

For the past year I've lost fifty pounds unintentionally, accompanied by abdominal pain/loss of appetite/diarrhea/nausea/vomiying. All of my blood work has been normal, I've been tested for anything that can cause weight loss (diabetes, thyroid issues). Only exception was that I had a high amount of antinuclear anitbodies. My endoscopy/colonoscopy came back all normal. Now the abdominal pain is severe, and I can't stop losing weight.

Dear Patient,

I'm extremely sorry to hear that. This is extremely unusual and alarming. You must consider meeting a very senior medical specialist who can first connect the dots and then guide you to an autoimmune specialist. I would like to tell you that recovery would involve more than one type of doctor and a lot of patience. we wish you a speedy recovery.

For further consultation, you can choose from our list of best Gastroenterologists in Tacoma and seek in-person advice.
