3 years ago I started having occasional morning nausea.. Which was then followed by an episode where I passed out, followed up a flare up of what was then diagnosed as Optic Neuritis.. within a month of that I was then diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. within six months of being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, the nausea was constant, every morning and i even started throwing up food that i had eaten 15-16 hours prior. I had an upper scope done, which showed a little bit of gastritis and a gastric emptying study, which also came back normal, but the test was actually done incorrectly. I stopped seeing that dr because he told me there was nothing else he could do, so the new Dr. I saw actually was convinced i had gastroparesis regardless of the emptying study.. This went on for about a year with a pretty much liquid diet and there was ZERO improvement. My next appt i was informed that that doctor was no longer seeing patients in clinic so I had to see a new doctor once again. This dr had me do another gastric emptying study, which again came back normal so when i went to confirm my appt that following month i found out that dr also left! This is U of M hospital so its not some scummy practice but ive troed every anti nausea remedy, pill, diet that you can think of and STILL I wake up with painful morning nausea. I have constant hearburn and I feel like im swallowing a lump. At this point I've come to realize that I'm going to need to try and diagnose myself because seeing a new dr every appt does nothing but put me in debt and yet I'm still suffering. I thought maybe it was my MS but any opinions out there I am willing to listen to.
