Clean Tests of Every Kind with Ongoing Nausea and Upper Abdominal Pain

Posted , 7 users are following.

About a year ago, I took my wife to the ER with severe upper, right abdominal pain. She was given an ultrasound since gallstones were suspected. Nothing. She was given the GI cocktail. No response. She could not even hold down water. We were sent home and ended up coming back the same day. We have been to the ER several times since, and seen a gastroenterologist. She has had multiple ultrasounds, a CT scan, an endoscopy, and a HIDA scan. Jack squat. No ulcers. No peptic problems. No heart burn. A perfectly functioning gallbladder and pancreas. The only thing she has ever “had” was a slightly fatty liver. That has since been resolved. We have tried tracking her food and can find no relation to the pain. The only thing that has somewhat helped is morphine, and even then, it doesn’t last. Normally after the ER visits, she gets back to normal. Three weeks ago she had another incident with one difference. She vomited. This is significant since she has not vomited in almost a decade. She doesn’t throw up easily. The vomit was almost purely bile. After the visit to the ER, she has had consistent upper abdominal pain and nausea for three straight weeks. We have no answers and we are basically getting shrugs from medical professionals. Zofran doesn’t even help the nausea. We don’t know what to do next or even what is wrong. We are thinking it is something with the gallbladder or pancreas, but are totally at a loss. Seriously, ANY help is appreciated.
