I have been to two local specialists and one specialist at U of Chicago, but no one seems to know exactly what is going on... I am nauseous every time I eat, sometimes severely to where I don't sleep all night. I don't vomit but am achey, tired, and miserable. I stopped eating for a while, (not a good idea) but still get hungry. symptoms seem to be worse if I eat dinner, no matter what I eat. One Dr. said it was a spasm in my colon (no colon symptoms) and gave me anti-spasmodics, another thought it was gastroparesis (it wasn't.) I have had mri's, ct's, hida scans, colon- and endoscopy, blood tests to cover every ailment known. (they say tests are all negative) I lost 35 lbs and my body hurts from the loss of muscle. My weight is steady for now, but I am sick of being sick and tired. I have even suggested that if it is all in my mind, to tell me that, but all the Dr's say it's not. They say what I eat isn't the problem, although I tried the no-fat diet and no-dairy diet, to no avail. I am at my wit's end... I would appreciate any suggestions!

  • Do you ever vomit after eating? You should talk to your doctor about stomach migranes. It's rare, but I have a friend who has that and experiences the same symptoms as you -- except when she eats something that she is allergic to or her stomach doesn't agree with, she will get very ill. Good luck!

  • No, I don't vomit but I am miserably nauseous, with the feeling that at any moment I will... Sometimes I won't even go to the store after eating for fear of having to run out to throw up, or -God forbid- throw up IN the store! (Even though I know it usually doesn't come to that.) I have briefly looked into abdominal migraines, but I will have to take a second look, thanks for the suggestion!
