Alright so my boyfriend has been having nausea every night since December. It can happen through the day, but mainly happens at night. No abdominal pain or anything.. Just nauseous, ill feeling.
He went to the doctor in January and got acid reflux medication which did nothing. An endoscopy, scope of his esophagus, and blood tests were done which was clear.
Then in April he went to the emergency room where they did an abdominal CT scan, and multiple blood tests where they found nothing. Finally he is referred to a gastroenterologist who performs more blood tests and a gastric emptying scan. I was so sure he had gastroparesis.. But the tests just came back saying he doesn't, and that he is not allergic to gluten and other types of food. They said it's all his anxiety/depression, but he has no such history of either. They gave him medication and said to see them back in July.
I really have a feeling it is not anxiety/depression that is causing this problem. Any tips of other tests that should be done, and possible illnesses/problems that can cause this constant feeling of nausea all the time, please let me know. Sometimes I feel hopeless and that there is nothing more that can be done. But I would really like to hope that is not the case.. Thank you!

Did the endoscopy examine inside his stomach as well as his esophagus? Were biopsies taken for h pylori? What about gastritis?
Oh, can you still have gallbladder problems without abdominal pain? Thanks, I will try a HIDA scan and food diary. And yes, actually he did have food poisoning from something he ate during Christmas. No biopsies were taken, the doctor said he checked it with a blood test. And I thought gastritis was detected with a endoscopy, so I've never thought of gastritis as a possibility ever since the endoscopy. Thanks for the info.
Keep a food diary it may be food related. even though gluten etc., not the problem. It could be other foods such as spicey or fatty foods and junk food. Also drinks that contoin caffeine or it may be related to alcohol. Keep a diary because there may be a correlation why the nausea occurs occasionally in daytime but mostly at night. Also, is he taking any other medications?
