Brief Answer:
IBS and Functional Dyspepsia

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the additional information.
All these symptoms are suggestive of irritable bowel syndrome and functional dyspepsia.
The thickening in the ileo cecal region detected in the first CT scan was probably due to infection which got resolved which is why the repeat CT scan didnt show any thickening.
The upper GI endoscopy also didnt reveal anything.

You have not mentioned whether you were tested for celiac disease.
If not done already do the following test - Tissue transglutaminase antibody.
Also get a stool test done.

Till the results are ready you can take the following medications.

1. T.Rifagut 1-0-0 for 2 weeks
2. C.VSL#3 1-0-0 for 4 weeks
3. T.Librax 1-0-1 for 4 weeks
4. T.Ibset 1-0-0 for 4 weeks.

Continue medications for cholesterol, high BP and migraine.

Brief Answer:
Answer given below

Detailed Answer:
If Ibset is not available, you can place an order with the pharmacist and procure it.
If milk and related products are increasing the pain, the best thing to do is to avoid them.
Regarding the raised Serum IgE, please post a separate question in the allergy section.

You can discuss with your gastroenterologist about the possibility of eosinophilic gastrenteritis sice your serum IgE is raised.
As suggested earlier also get tissue transglutaminase antibody testing done.

I am 45 years of age. Going thru quite a lot stress for past few years. 10th Dec I felt slight chest pain n discomft n high bp with shortness of breath. Went to dr in the night itself. Got all the tests done including ECG N CT angio N various blood tests. Everything came perfect except that cholestrol is 276. Dr says it was an anxiety attack. Dr here prescribed few medicines. Rozavel f- daily 1, Betacap TR 40- DAILY 1, Olimesar20 daily 1. n one sleeping pill Tryptomer. After the medicines, I feel slight pain in my back / shoulder muscles n feel that heart is ponding in the night n generally feel drowsy. BP also comes 98 / 52 or 91/ 48 but pulse rate is around 70 / 75. After having glucose i feel better. What could be the reason? My menopause is also approaching. I think some medicine is not well suited.

I am writing on here as a last ditched attempt to find my mother help it started about 11yrs ago when she woke me from my sleep grey,struggling to breath and holding her chest she was imediately rushed into hospital where her symtoms disappeared and did so for years until she became tired all the time, stopping for naps on the roadside in work.then last year another episode rared its ugly head and she was admitted once again only to find the doctors telling her that it was all in her head, she has an irregular heartbeat and stress seemed to be the cause. shes had a few episodes since and had a reveal devise fitted which showed slight abnormalities,then another attack occured so she was fitted with a pacemaker. my mums 47yrs old and very fit and healthy they told her to stop the gym and, relax more but since the pacemaker my mums ill she looks grey all the time and currently on holiday in scotland for her birthday (today) and has been rushed into hospital again. the pace maker is supposed to make her life better but to me its keeping a half dead woman alive. i hate to see her like this and im fed up of her being passed around pillar to post from stress to mental problems. there is a pattern my grandfather died in 2000 when he went to sleep and his heart stopped. the same with his mother this cant be coincidence surely?. im worried for my brothers and sisters and there children. any advise or helpful information would be gratefully excepted. thankyou keli
