I am hoping someone can give me some insight as to what I should do next.. Here is how the past 3 months have gone:
-Woke up every morning feeling sick, but once I threw up I would be fine. A lot of the time it was just stomach acid, didnt seem to be related to any food I was eating or anything I was drinking
-Went to the dr after about a month, he thought I had a stomach ulcer, which would make sense to me. Put me on meds that should have cleared things up after 3 weeks. meanwhile I got a bunch of blood tests and an ultrasound, which all came back fine
-During the 3 weeks of meds, my throwing up in the mornings subsided a little bit, only happened about every 3rd morning
-After the meds were done, went back to throwing up every morning
-Now, after being off those for about a month, I have a very very weak bladder. I mean weak as in if i drink something, I have to urinate about 5 mins after. For example, If i drank a small juice box, I would go to the bathroom at least 3 times in the next hour, until it was all gone. On top of this, I am very very fatigued all of the time. I could sleep for days , which is not normally like me.
Then this morning, I threw up blood. This is a first for me. Not really sure where to go from here. My doctor seems to just want to pump meds into me for everything and mask the symptoms instead of get to the bottom of them. Last time I was in his office, he even answered a personal call on his call and planned out what he was gonna have for supper with his wife. Has anyone else gone through something like this or have any suggestions on what I should do now?

Some additional info:
I do not drink, not heavily anyway and not more than once a month.
After I eat anything, I feel very full, to the point of discomfort, but not usually to the point of sickness

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

  • Get yourself to another doctor - don't let them leave until they have some answers for you. Do this asap - vomiting blood is never okay. Get to the ER if you have to. You should be tested for GB disease. You sound like you also have a UTI - were you prescribed antibiotics for the supposed ulcer? Did they find H. Pylori in your blood or stool? If not, then I think the ulcer diagnosis is not correct. If you took antibiotics please get a good quality probiotic to get your flora back in check - this should also help your urinary frequency. But do find another doc and fire the one who takes personal calls on your time - that is beyond insane! Best wishesDOM
