I need some advice or guidance as to what is wrong with me, right now I am in-between being able to have health care, so I just want to know if anyone can at least help me pin point what’s wrong

I have always had stomach problems, I was diagnosed with Irritable bowle syndrome when I was 16, I am 23 now, but I have been able to handle my usual upset stomach problems pretty well. It seems though something is not as it was. For the last 7 months I have been suffering from nausea that starts when I awake up and just continues through out the entire day. I am not pregnant, I have already had that professionally looked into. Also for the last 7 months I can no longer consume any type of liquor, I cannot even drink less then a half a glass of wine without my stomach starting to burn and rumble in about 4 hours, it ends with vomiting every time and I will still be sick feeling the next day. I have stopped drinking but I am still sick, so I don't think it was just the liquor... does anyone have any idea what’s going on with either my stomach or intestines.

  • Hi,Their is quite afew things that could be wrong with your stomach and intestines. The first thing that I would do is: STOP DRINKING ALCOHOL! Alcohol irritates the stomach and intestinal lining. If it is irritated long enough, it can set you up for a stomach infection (a bacterial infection called: H-pylori is one of them), or intestinal infection. Try and keep a record of how your days go, for example, when you wake up in the morning, how do you feel? Do you feel hungry? Do you feel better or worse after you eat? Then do the same thing for lunch and supper. A doctor will ask you these same questions. Try not to have an empty stomach....eat smaller meals and more often. Keep on top of what is going on..if they seem to be getting worse...get into see a doctor! Their is a blood test that can tell if you have H-pylori. Even if you don't have insurance..most clinics have programs that allows you to get the medical help you need, with little or no cost to you...all you have to do is ask about it. GOOD LUCK...SKEETER
