So about 10 months ago I started randomly getting really nauseous and throwing up in the mornings, it was mostly stomache acid and happened 4/7 days of the week. I was working at the time and attending a community college so it didn't really bother me much then and I had a busy schedule so I put off going to the doctor. So about 3 months after that ( 7 months ago from now) I was woke up by the WORST stomache pain I've ever had in my life. It was at the top of my stomache almost where my rib line was. I had never in my life had pain like that. And then came the vomiting. It was none stop. Every 3 to 4 minutes I was puking up pure stomache acid and a lot of it. No matter how much I threw up, more came. So I did that for about 4 hours and decided I couldn't take it and had my mom take me to the Emergency Room (I have never been to an ER before so for me to ask to go was a lot). Got there and go back to a room. My blood pressure was very high (I've always had a near perfect blood pressure). They gave me an IV and a small dose of Tramodol. It literally didn't nothing. They brought me morphine and it didn't even help. They eventually gave me a dose of dilaudid and it barely took my pain away. I had a CT scan done and blood work and it all came back very normal. So they released me and said they couldn't do anything else. To go see my primary care doctor. (I'm a 20 year old female and still go to a peditatian I have seen my whole life so they aren't much help at all) after being in the episode for 18 hours it all finally let up and i started to recover. I have an episode like that about every 3-4 days after that. I've seen Gastro doctors. 3 of them. And they all say I'm completely healthy. But my blood pressure stays alittle elevated now. I've had an upper scope done with biopsies that came back very healthy. They won't do anything else now. From the start of this all I have lost at least 50 lbs. I used to weigh around 175lbs and now I can't get above 120lbs. I'm at my breaking point to be honest. I go to the ER's and they do nothing now. Don't even give me fluid hardly. I honestly have no one taking me serious. My pediterian atleast tries to help me. She researched some things and all we've found is give me Lorazepam 1mg at the start of an episode can deal it alittle but nothing helps. Nothing can prevent it. I lay and cry for up to a day in pain and there is nothing I can do. I have absolutely no appetite. Even when I'm not in an episode. I can barely force myself to eat once a day. Sometimes I go days without eating because I physically can't. It's affecting my family to see me that way all the time. I barely can do anything. I had to unenroll from school and quit my job. My whole life is on hold from this sickness and it is getting to me. I've tried taking it upon myself to research things, but when I bring them up to doctors I basically get laughed at. Changing my diet has no affect on it at all. Some food are okay one day and then the next kill me. I feel like I'm slowly wasting away and the doctors don't care. So please if you have any suggestion, I'm completely open to them!
