My 19 yr old son has severe nausea since Nov 2016. Drs. at Northwestern in Chgo and Mayo in MN are clueless. He's had a complete GI workup, esophagus/stomach, reflux, brain scan, stomach emptying, upper GI, lower colonoscopy, MRI, CT scans, all kinds of tests taken with barium, blood work (i'm sure I'm forgetting some) and all came up normal. He's lost 30 lbs. The nausea gets worse after eating. He's on zofran and ativan, which helps a little. He has always had a fear of vomiting, but we all think its something else. Blood work indicated nothing wrong with endocrine system, but only blood work done in this area. He had his appendix removed 2 yrs ago, but all was fine. He was like this at 12 yrs old, took protonix for one month and went away (coincidence?) until 19; but all current tests indicate no acid reflux. He's not taking protonix for about a week now - not helping so far, but understand it takes a while. Meniers (vertigo) disease is ruled out, so is crohns, gastritis, gallbladder, ulcers, etc. Cancer ruled out.
He has not been on any antibiotics recently; although he does have springtime allergies which doesn't cause nausea.
He also sustained an eye injury during water polo in late Sept. 2016 and there's a cyst on inner corner of eye. Dr. says if it doesn't bother him leave it. But I've read where if it's putting pressure on back of eyeball, it could cause nausea. Anybody familiar with eye pressure causing continued nausea?
Can teeth veneers (in front) cause nausea?
Any body know anything about the vagus nerve? Nervious system causing nausea?
Looking forward to hearing from any one who can help. He's a freshman in college away from home and is suffering. Last week, he had only two complete meals and paces in the bathroom for 2 hrs until the nauseousness becomes manageable. He loves school and has lots of friends...he just wants to feel normal. PLEASE HELP
