I have no idea what to do anymore. I am at the point where I just want to give up on everything. It all started about 2 years ago when I was at a friends house eating some pizza and relaxing. In the middle of the night I started getting some severe pains under my right rib cage and some ridiculous nausea and vomiting. This lasted all night and I ended up staying awake all night vomiting. After that night I never really felt the same. I ended up going to the emergency room because I was in so much pain and I couldn't keep anything down. Doctors said that the pain could very well be gallbladder so I went to a hospital and got an ultrasound right away.
I ended up doing the ultrasound and doctors found no gallstones or anything wrong with me. They prescribed me omeprazole and sent me on my way. It has been almost 2 years since that night and I have been to the emergency room a total of 4 times. And I have been to a gastroenterology specialist 5 times and Have seen two other doctors as well. I have had a HIDA Scan which came back normal. An upper endoscopy which came back with inflammation of my esophogus but nothing else and many blood tests. I tried reglan recently and it did not help at all.
I am going to see my doctor again tomorrow but I already know what is going to happen. He is going to tell me there is nothing he can do, like always. I am at the point where I am vomiting a total of 10 to 15 times a day. My nausea is INCREDIBLY uncomfortable and only occurs after I eat something. The odd thing is the pain under my right rib cage is gone but my nausea and vomiting are MUCH worse now. Even drinking water has started to cause me discomfort and nausea. Most of the time its the worst when i eat something greasy or full of fat.
I am still convinced it has something to do with my gallbladder and pancreas but the tests say otherwise I guess. I don't know what I thought I would get out of posting this. I just figured maybe somebody out there has been dealing with the same problem. Maybe I can get some help. I am only 21 years old and I just want to have a normal life again. I have no idea what I did to deserve something like this but its just plain crippling.
