I have suffered with stomach problems for at least 3 years now and no one seems to know what is wrong with me. My main issue at the moment is continuous vomiting. I have had acid reflux all my life since i was 11 years old and its got worse and gone away over the years. However about two months ago i started to vomit up to 8 times a day and it last for over 6 weeks. I was admitted to hospital for 2 weeks because i was so poorly. I had an endoscopy a year ago and it showed my valve in my stomach is very weak and i had some inflammation in my stomach. The doctors havent really thought anything about it until i mentioned could this be the reason why i am vomiting. The doctors keep trying to blame it all on anxiety but i know its not to do with that. I have been referred for a Bravo study and a manometry but the doctors keep saying that they doubt they will find anything and that vomiting isnt common with GERD. I feel stuck because i am so poorly and its taking over my whole life i can barely work or go to college as i feel nauseous all the time and i vomit i also feel exhausted. The doctor said i might just have to accept that there is nothing wrong with me which i cant do as its taken over my whole life. Can GERD actually make you vomit food up and liquids and vomit quite alot at a time or can it be something else thats causing it? i feel so lost.
