I am a 20 year old female and i have been suffering from unexplainable constant nausea since October 2009. I was hospitalized for 7 weeks with constant vomitting. I could not eat and I was malnourished. I would throw up three to four times a day. while i was in the hospital they also found a kidney stone (my 2nd one in 6 months) and it had to be surgically removed.
I was released from the hospital in the beginning of december. they could not find a reason for why i had been vomitting but i had stopped so they let me go home. I was still very nauseous and they said that would be normal for a little while but that it would go away and it has not. I have had to take a leave of absence from school because of this. I get alot of pain in my stomach after I eat and i have alot of epigastric pain.
I am taking Zofran (nausea medication for chemo patients) and domperidone. I have had 3 gastroscopies that have come back normal except for inflammation and excessive acid. I had barium and upper GI and that came back fine as well except for acid. I had 2 ultrasounds and everything was ok except them found some lymph nodes in my stomach leading my gastrointerologist to send me for a abdominal CT scan. the scan came back clear and the lymph nodes were not swolllen so my GI specialist said it is not a problem. i have also had blood tests done and a urine test.
I also suffer from chornic migraines that began after i got a really bad concusion a few years back. i take Atcanad (a high blood pressure medication) that is used to treat the migraines. I had a CT scan of my head done in order to make sure it was something in my head causing the nausea and the results came back in time. I have been off the atcanad for the last few days in an attempt to see if it was causing the nausea and it does not seem to be the case. I also take uromax for my overactive bladder and i stopped that as well to see if it was the problem and that is not the case either. I went to see an endocrinologist and she said she saw nothing that would my symptoms in terms of my endocrine system. I have gone to see internal medicine and that doctor said he couldn't think of anything.
I finally went to a nautropath that has put me on a cleanse that includes no dairy, no red meat or pork, no artificial sugars,no gluten, no potatoes, tomatoes or citrus fruit. to see if we can clean out my system i have been doing it for almost two weeks and have really seen any improvement.
I also went to see an osteopath. I have only gone once but did not see a difference in my stomach but he did help the stifness in my neck
plz help I have no idea what to do. I want my life back and I want to go back to school. if you have any ideas please help me
