for the past two years I've been struggling with chronic nausea. im young and not sexually active, so no im not pregnant. when it first started happening, it lasted for abour 5 months and i felt nauseous all day every day, along with feeling as if i drank gallons of water. i lost a ton of weight and could barely force myself to eat. during that summer, i was starting a new school and about a week after school started my tummy issues disappeared. that year i was tested for lactose & gluten allergies which both came up negative. then, my mom wasnt too concerned, just thought it was constipation or something. last year i was mostly ok, i had a few times where my stomach hurt for a couple days but it could've just been something i ate. recently though, it has gotten much worse and debilitating. i went to the normal family doctor and was told to stop eating gluten because that's what she said it was. I stopped eating gluten and three weeks later, i still didn't feel any better, if not worse. my mom took me to the ER. i got an ultrasound, blood test, urine samples, xrays, etc and was told to see my gastroenterologist in a few weeks. they prescribed zofran for the nausea but that barely works. i was in so much pain and couldnt wait any longer so we fought to get an earlier appointment and recently i just had upper and lower endoscopies. the biopsies havent come back yet but im very scared they wont find the problem. its been leaving me more depressed than ever! i cant go to school, i force myself to eat, i cant leave the house bc car rides seem to make my belly worse. also, i have a huge fear of throwing up, i havent yet at all but my anxiety gets the best of me and i always freak myself out. if anybody has any advice please respond. thank you
