I'm 15 and have been having ongoing symptoms for almost half a year which make it difficult for me to eat. These are mainly: acid reflux/regurgitation, nausea, occasional vomiting, loss of appetite, bloating, heartburn, belching, acute sharp abdominal pain after eating.
I also have raynauds phenomenom, shortness of breath and difficulty sleeping but i do not know if these link in.
I am taking 40mg of omeprazole each morning which stop the refluxes being acidic which helps me so much in that sense as it relieves my pain. I also take 10mg of domperidone before each meal three times a day, i think this stops nausea but i am not sure as it doesn't last that long.
Tests for celiacs, H.Pylori and malnutrition have all come back negative.
I am due for an endoscopy in late january but my doctor doesn't have much hope for this.
Please give me any ideas on what this could be as i am running out of ideas and have lost a lot of weight so far, so much that my periods have stopped. I can't go out for a meal and don't like eating anymore.
From my own research i am considering gastroparesis, scleroderma, peptic ulcer, bile reflux, chronic gastritis and dermatomyositis.
Please help.
