Undiagnosed nausea/dry mouth for 5 months

Posted , 9 users are following.

Please help,

For the past 5 months I have been waking up through the night with a dry mouth and in the morning feel nauseous and either vomit or burp alot. My stomach is also alot noisier than usual. I have seen multiple GPs and specialists

At first I was refered to a nephrologist as I had a one off kidney problem 2 years ago. I had an abdomen ultrasound and he looked at that, my blood tests, had a feel and said everything seemed fine.

Then I was referred to have a gastroscopy which also came back fine. 

I have been tested for hepatitis and diabetes as well as having multiple blood tests, urine tests and a breath test which have all come back clear and showing no signs of an infection.

To me it feels like some sort of digestive issue. The sickness feeling is in my throat and if I touch my neck even gently I start to gag. Its frustrating because I used to be rather fit and exercised alot but I can't do anything in the gym without vomitting (it seems to also come on when I lean forward or back)

Any ideas?

It is getting expensive going to see different specialists just to be told they see nothing wrong

    Seems to me that unless they already ruled both out, it could be GERD or Crohn's or both. I was recently diagnosed with both and also have the nausea and gagging. Gagging can be for any reason or no reason at all. That symptom is what finally made me go get an endoscopy. I always knew I had lower GI issues, but now they migrated up. The endoscopy is when they could see the GERD and Crohn's at the beginning of my small intestine. If you haven't tried an acid blocker, you could, but I'm finding I actually do better if I don't take anything. Hot baths or showers also help. And yes, moving makes it worse for me too so I know exactly how you feel. It really stinks!

    Check out gastroparesis. It's delayed stomach emptying which causes a great deal of nausea and vomiting. I've had it my whole life. Basically it's almost like when you turn a car on, but it won't turn on. It's often forgotten about by many doctors so just check it out.

    Hello, did you ever figure out what was causing this? I have the same thing and I don't know what to do. I'm miserable.

      Nope - but I don't think it is anything to do with reflux. Multiple doctors put me on meds for that and I felt better once I stopped taking them (on the advice of another doctor) but still gagging when stressing myself (exercising, singing kareoke etc) 

      I saw a neurologist who prescribed something (can't remember the name sorry) that was meant to be a nerve suppressant for the throat that helped a bit but was pretty expensive so I only did it for a month as the benefit wasnt worth the cost

      This is causing me so much anxiety. I am afraid to eat because I feel so gaggy. I can't handle this. I'm losing so much weight. Anti nausea meds don't help.
