I really need help. I've had daily nausea in waves, for 3.5 months. It started one day after a friends birthday dinner in March. Half of the people that had attended got sick (so I'm assuming there was something with the food?). A week later, everyone was back to normal but me. I had been experiencing daily nausea.
I went away to visit my brother at his school in Oswego, New York in Feb (prior to the March incident). On the second day of travelling, I was so nauseous that I had to take gravol. It lasted for a few days and got better when I got home. This nausea was accompanied by green diarrhea. For about a few weeks I was feeling fine, and then the whole birthday dinner thing happened.
We went to the doctor in March and he told us to keep waiting and take probiotics. I took them for a while but they weren't making a difference, so we went back to the dr. He booked an ultrasound, and we went. They found something, so we went for an MRI. Everything on the MRI came back normal.
Now I don't know what to do. I threw up the other night, and I'm not sure if it's related, but it's the first time in the 3.5 months of this nausea I've actually thrown up. Once a wek, before bed, i'll feel so nauseous (borderline about to throw up) that I have to take gravol to force myself to sleep.
I've been tested for H Pylori (negative) and have had done blood-work multiple times. All normal. At this point, I'm not sure what to do. Is it mental? Is there something else wrong?
I'm not hungry. I'm losing weight, and I'll add i'm a type 1 diabetic. We're going to see a gastroenterologist next month, but I'm going on vacation to the bahamas before my appointment. I'm worried about travelling and this ruining my trip.
Any advice? Anyone in a similar boat? Thank you.
