Help! 21 y.o. daughter has had ongoing gastrointestinal distress off and on for the last 6 months which have gotten progressively worse. She got lost in the transistion from peds to internal medicine. Her Internal medicine doctor has not run any diagnostic tests or blood work. The endoscopy was ordered after another extended bout of vomiting a week ago and when they admitted they "had no idea what could be wrong with her." Her symptoms have ranged from orangish rough/loose to dark, but no tarry, BMs; projectile and regular vomiting consisting of bright yellow/orange fluids, rigid stomach which bloats, then subsides, diminished bowel sounds, aching pain in stomach, more high than low, general malaise. No fevers of note. Had to put her on Imetrol for vomiting and an acid reducer (150 mg.) prior to each meal and restrict her diet. She is scheduled for an endoscopy on 3/19. PMX: ETOH 2 or more times per week (although nothing in past 3 days), has used marijuana/cigarettes - no other street drugs that I know of. She takes ADD med as needed. She is one of those "nervous stomach" types, is training for new job, and is in school full time. I am worried about bile duct, peptic ulcers, etc. Any help would be appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
