Case Study:

29 year old male

CC: Burning pain in stomach, worse when stomach is empty. He frequently experiences flashes of heat in the upper part of his body (neck, face, head) in combination with his GI symptoms.

SX: Nausea, burping, bloating, loss of appetite, weight loss, migraines. On a scale of 1-10, his burning stomach pain is a 7. Although food makes him feel better, sometimes his stomach hurts so much he is unable to eat.

History: This patient has experienced migraines since high school.

Other Info:

  • He traveled in Central America (Panama, Nicaragua, Costa Rica) for 6 months last year with his girlfriend. They worked on farms and did various homesteads over this period of time.
  • He has tried intermittent fasting as well as an elimination diet as well as pre and probiotic supplementation with no improvement in his symptoms.
  • His lack of appetite combined with his migraines are rendering him unable to keep up with his job as an arborist.
