I have stomach episodes of extreme pain and vomitting. Sometimes it is months between spells, sometimes only days. I was treated for endometriosis and went through a series of surgeries. However, I'm back to square one with my G.I. dr not being able to determine what it is. It's very frustrating because I went through 8 of these 10 years telling doctors what was happening to me and because it didn't show up in the tests they did (ctscan, xray, ultrasound, bloodwork, upper endoscopy, colonoscopy and a few other) I felt like they didn't believe me. Finally, through laproscopy, one dr finally found something, (the endometriosis) and it was everywhere! Whatever this is, it is affecting mine and my family's lives. I take meds, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. I tried several. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated on where to go/ what to do from here. thanks :confused:
