The past few months i have been having a large amount of issues relating to my stomach, getting only progressively worse. I have waves of nausea, that don't go away for hours, and are only sometimes helped by drinking ginger tea and eating saltines. I've tried medicine after medicine, and nothing has helped. Pepcid relieved most of my symptoms for about two weeks, and then they came back worse than ever.
Occassionally, my nausea turns into terrible stomach aches that are so painful that I can't get up. I feel the need to deficate, but nothing comes out.
I also struggle with gas, constantly. Hiccuping and burping more frequently, and annoying half burps of gas attempting to come up my throat and not succeeding. In most cases this also leads to nausea.
I'm not able to lay on my stomach or flat on my back without feeling acid creep up my throat, and sitting up doesn't relieve any acid issues.
I experience nausea or pain after eating, no matter what it is: fruit, gluton free, low fat, high fat, etc. I do not have any food allergies.
My other symptoms include trouble swallowing, weight loss (2-3 pounds per week, not on any weightloss diet) and despite drinking tons of water, both my bowelmovements remain the same light brown.
I have been instructed to avoid anything with tomatoes, anything spicy, chocolate, mint, onions, garlic, fatty foods, and fried foods. I haven't had anything with the above listed since I was instructed to avoid them.
I received an abdominal ultrasound and upper GI and the results came back with nothing. My stomach has no ukcers or tumors or perforations of any kind, my organs are all normal size, and I do not have any gallstones. I apparently do not have acid reflux disease or any acid reflux issue whatsoever. Celiac disease is not a likely factor, either. I don't understand what is going on.
I'm 18 years old and have no record of any health problems, aside from lazy eye (which obviously is not related). Does anyone know what is happening, or have an idea?
