I have gone to my doctor over the years numerous times complaining of continuous stomach pain and wishing my doctor could do something about it. They call it epigastric pain... b/c it mostly affects my upper stomach. After meals, I get a stomach ache there. There's always a headache, stomach pain, and I feel dysfunct and out of it, and nauseas. When I tell my doctor about it she tells me it's just gastritis and I have acid reflux disease and she'll give me a different anti acid medicine. The problem is none of those anti acid medicines help but she just won't listen to what I'm saying! She refuses to look into it further and sends me off with another acid reducer. I don't even experience acid reflux! I have been told by a very reputable online doctor that it could be carcinoid syndrome but my doctor refuses to look into it. I don't know what I can do to help but I do know that meat causes the most symptoms for me. I feel especially nauseas with a stomach ache when I eat any kind of meat. Is there any stomach disorder with these sypmtoms?

  • Do you have pain when you eat fried food or buttery and oily things? Try looking up IBS. IBS and other things are treatable but it feels like your dieing in the bathroom if you don't get treated. You may need a Colinoscopy and an endoscopy, to rule out anything bad, and to diagnosis you.

  • i am not a doctor... if i were you i would look into food intolerances .... they can cause a few of the symptoms you describe... well most of them actually. have you tried a gluten free diet?
