I've had ongoing nausea for years, along with trouble swallowing and a lump in my throat that makes it feel like my throat is closing. I've always had a bad gag reflex as well. Other symtoms are: lots of salivation due to being hungry, left upper chest pain that recently subsided for the most part, "hot" feeling in abdomen, and regurgitation in back of throat that happens about once a month. In the past couple months, the nausea has gotten much worse to the point where I can hardly stand being in a car and when I get to school I can't lift my head up without feeling like I could puke any second. I haven't actually vomited in years, and I do have a big fear of it. The last time I went to the doctor for this was 2010-2011, and he told me it could be GERD, but didn't really elaborate at all. I'm kinda nervous to go again because I have always been underweight (I've never been over 120 lbs. in my life) and lost a little more weight recently due to not being able to eat as much. I've always wanted to gain more weight but it's never happened. I thought all this could be due to me eating tons of pasta, tomato sauce, and ramen, but I wasn't sure. My diet has improved since last year (no fast food at all, no soda, more whole foods and what not), but it's still not great. If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.
