Hi, my name is Melissa and i am 20 years old. The reason i am writing you today is to find out what is wrong with me. Going back as far as october i've had a problem with my stomach that the doctors cannot figure out. I've been mis-diagnosed with acid reflux and irritable bowel sydrome. I've been nauseas every day, particularly worse in the mornings, where sometimes ill throw up yellow stomach vile, others i wont throw up at all. Another thing that i found linked to it, well i think anyway, is my period. 3 out of my 6 last periods winded me up in the hospital. I woke up with my period and was just in the worst pain and couldnt stop myself from throwing up. I was even rushed to the Emergency Room by ambulance for this specific incident last month. Once again the doctors just gave me an IV for the vomitting and sent me on my way. My gallbladder was also checked and still nothing. Please someone help me.:confused:

  • You should seriously consider having a blood test done. I really think the doctor might find something abnormal with it. Other than that I have no clue. The only thing I could think of was a SUPER sevier case of dysmenorrhoea. Which going by your symptoms I'm not so sure thats the case... (I am not a doctor, so I have no clue).Anyway, good luck finding your answer, don't give up!

  • I would talk with your gynecologist. Hormones play a funny role. I have PCOS, and every period is always painful, heavy, and comes with alot of other symptoms. Have you ever been checked for ovarian cysts? These can cause cyclical pain, nausea, problems with bowel (hint...IBS), fatigue, etc. Also ask about uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and maybe even bladder issues(ie. kidney stones). Good luck and I hope you feel better soon:)

  • Hello! As I was reading your post I wonder? Have you been checked for H-Pylori? As its a bacterial infection with in the stomach. It is a very simple blood test that can be done in most clinic's or doctor's offices. Based on your Sx, I say there is a chance it may be that, as it is a commonly misdiagnosed ailment. It can be cured with antibiotics and some proton pump inhibitors along with an anti-inflamatory. As for the menstral issues you may need to have your hormones checked. Good luck and hope this may help you.
