I am a 20 year old female, normally very well and fit.
I had not thrown up since I was 12 years old (phobia of vomiting), therefore, had not had a bug or any of the sort in many many years.
In June this year, I was up all night, gagging with severe stomach pain. I took any anti-sickness tablet so that is probably why I did not throw up. However, following this I never got better. I had constant nausea every single day. I went to the doctors after about 2 weeks and she said it could have been food poisoning and because I wasn't sick it would take a while to leave my system.
HOWEVER, 2 months on and I was still nauseous. I was struggling to even leave the house. After multiple visits to the doctors, they had no idea what was going on. My bloods had been done over 5 times and this was all clear. I had a barium swallow and it showed a narrow oesophagus. But that was it. They put me on IBS tablets, meberverine I believe it was called. I started to get slightly better, not fully but I could travel etc now which was more than a few months ago. I went on holiday to Crete at the start of Septemeber, and low and behold on the 3rd day I got very ill again like in June.
Ever since the episode on holiday, I have felt TERRIBLE, every single day. I have slightly more gas than normal, no heart burn or indigestion at all. But I feel SO nauseous every single day. I am not sleeping, not really managing to eat alot, I have lost over a stone in the past 2 months.
I had an endoscopy last week, which surprisingly came back with nothing. I am currently trying to go gluten free and am taking probiotics and peptic peppermint liquid.
Does anybody have any ideas what this could be?! I am a university student and work part-time, however, I am soon to be failing university and loosing my job because of this. I am living a nightmare and don't know where else to turn now.
