Okay so I was diagnosed with acid reflux as a baby. It went away and started bothering me again when I was 14 and was taking Prilosec as needed. Around 20 I went to the doctor and was prescribed zofran as I was extremely nauseous randomly throughout the day. Went and had an endoscopy done and was told I had esophagitis and to take protonix for this. 8 weeks later I was feeling fine but a few months after that my nausea had come back full force and 10 times worse than before. I tried every medicine out there for acid reflux, ulcers etc. zofran was no longer working and went for another endoscopy had 13+ stomach ulcers and doctor had said it was chronic gastritis. Was given carafate and that was that. Well I started feeling better and ended up losing my job so I became very depressed and suffer from anxiety. Found out I am also bipolar (2) and have ptsd. Started on Prozac for that which made me anorexic after a couple of days and the nausea started back to the point where I was in extreme pain and couldn’t do much but stay in bed until it went away. It would last hours on end and I couldn’t even go to sleep. I stopped taking Prozac after 9 days and it’s been almost 2 weeks since that and I’m still feeling extremely nauseous mostly when I wake up in the morning within the first 20 minutes of waking up and lasts mostly all day. It doesn’t matter if I eat or don’t eat it usually ends up getting worse throughout the day. I’m starting a new job in a few days and feel as if there’s nothing I can do and I can’t work while feeling like this because I can barely function when I feel this bad. Any ideas? I have been tested for celiacs it was negative. I also recently have been having dizzy spells and woke up 3 days ago with a really bad pain on my right side rib cage that is painful to touch even if it is just my shirt rubbing against it. I’m 24 years old and can’t keep living like this.
