My son is 15. Approx. 11 months ago he would periodically wake up with nausea and feeling of having to vomit. By 10 or 11 am it would go away. This would happen about 1-2 x week. Three months ago is started daily and with vomiting till 1-2 pm. After a week of this, I took him to the Dr. He put him on anti-nausea pill that he has to take everymorning. It helps with the vomiting, but he still can't function well till the afternoon. This began with an abundance of tests being ordered. All sorts of blood tests, ct scans, ultrasouds, UGI. With no results. Meanwhile he is still very sick, weak, tired, has headaches, constant low back ache. He is currently on home medical schooling till we can't get him better. He doesn't eat very well. He is 6' tall and weighs 116-120 lbs. The doctors are baffled. He has never had any serious illness before and always has been a pretty healthy kid.
He is seeing a GI specialist at Standford. He was suppose to have a Endoscopy yesterday, however, due to insurance authorization not being received in time, it didn't happen. We hope to get that done next month.
Meanwhile, my 15 year old boy's quality of life is merely nul.
It's so frustrating that after 3 months of tests, we can't seem to find out what is wrong with him.
