Hi there,
I have had a number of symptoms over the past few months which "shouldn't" be related, based on info I have read. Thankfully, no symptoms have been really severe but certainly bad enough that I've had to take some time off of work. I've gone to my GP and was tested for H. Pylori bacteria, anemia, and other possibilities which I can't remember (sorry). Everything was clear.

My doctor has me on Zantac, which seems to be helping a lot. She has told me to stay on it for another 6-8 weeks and if I'm still feeling unwell to visit the clinic again.

Here is a list of my symptoms. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated:
-stomach ache (all over)
-headache (all over)
-vomiting, generally only a little

I'd have a number of guesses if it wasn't for the headaches.:confused:
Thanks in advance for your response!

  • Headache could be caused by dehydration brought on by the vommiting. You need to drink a balanced electrolyte solution not just water to replace the losses from vommiting.

  • I think you should consider celiac disease, the bodies inability to process gluten. There are a bunch of symptoms and the disease presents itself in each patient differently. http://www.celiaccenter.org/symptoms.asp http://www.aafp.org/afp/20021215/2259.htmlhttp://www.aafp.org/afp/980301ap/pruessn.html
