I''m having some severe gastric problems and my GP has no idea what it could be...
3 weeks ago I had to throw up acutely. It was only stomach acid (approximately 200cc, so quite a lot) and no food. Since then I suffered from regurgitation. In the first week I tried antacids (Rennie), later a H2-receptor blocker (ranitidine) but they didn't work at all. I was getting nauseous and the regurgitation progressed. After a week I went to my GP and she prescribed a PPI (1 dd 20mg omeprazol). It got worse and I started to eat less and less, and a week later she thought I should try 3dd 10mg domperidon with my omeprazol. I was getting sicker and sicker everytime I tried to eat, but even 4x 20mg domperidon didn't work. Today I went to my GP again because I can't eat more than one slice of white bread 2 or 3 times a day without feeling very sick. If I eat more or heavier (like food containing fat) I get really nauseous for about 2 hours and I have severe regurgitation for about 30 minutes. But what's really strange is the fact that I don't have any abdominal pain at all (and I feel really ok when my stomach is empty) which made my GP confused. I really don't feel like eating anymore (I used to love food and going to very chique restaurants, but now I don't want to eat anything at all) and I've lost 8 kg (18 lbs) in 3 weeks time. Today my doctor took some blood for general testing and a liver function test, and next week I have to go to the gastroenterologist for additional tests... Does any one know what this could be?
