I am a 22 year old male and about 9 or 10 months ago i got sick with a bug (or perhaps it wasn't a bug and was just the start) and started vomiting all night long. it took about 7 hours of vomiting and diarrhea till i eventually went to the hospital. There they did an ultrasound of my gallbladder and it came back normal. Every since then i have been in a constant state of nausea. I do not vomit too often but when I do I don't stop for around 6-8 hours and I have some pretty intense diarrhea during it. I have been to a GI and they have gotten several test done. I have had a HIDA scan which was normal, a gastric emptying exam which was normal, a cat scan which was normal, I have had a colonoscopy and endoscopy which showed that I had 4 polyps (which are benign) and a tortuous colon. I have changed my diet quite severely. It has improved slightly. I started out at about 280 pounds and now i weigh about 200. I am sure some of the weight loss is my diet change but some months i don't lose but like 5 pounds and then some i lose over 20. I have good days and bad days now. But it seems like it is starting to get worse again. I am currently on pepcid and a probiotic. I take zofran when it gets really bad and it barely helps it. If anyone has any idea what this could be please help me.
