Unable to eat or drink without feeling gassy and nauseated (Esophagitis Grade B)

Hi,

I haven't been eating or drinking for almost a week and was put on IV Fluids. I did Endoscopy and CT Scan while at the hospital and results are Grade B (Esophagitis). CT Scan shows normal.

The doctor could not find any major issue with me so I was discharged from the hospital. 

Whenever I drink liquids (even a sip), I get a feeling in my stomach that it is full of gas and I am unable to pass the gas. It will stay on until I walk around for few minutes or hours to get the gas out. Sometimes I would vomit but there is only air which is coming out. So far I have tried water, coconut water, water mixed with glucose powder, 1/2 tbsp baking soda and they did not help. 

Whenever eating foods (banana or bread) I get this feeling that it is getting stuck it between my stomach and esophagus and I feel nauseated. 

Have anyone had a similar issue? I was thinking maybe I haven't had any food in my stomach for a week or so and it is trying to adjust itself. Any help would be appreciated as I am currently not on IV Fluids and I fear that I might go into dehydration very soon if this keeps going on.

Thank you!
