I'm 18 years old and I have the following symtoms:

Since last fall, I've had trouble getting sick everytime I eat something. We assume it's acid and so I'm taking a lot of antiacids now. Sometimes I take around 2 for dinner- not as prevention but to help with the intense pain. I also get VERY nauseated during this time. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm sitting or laying down as far as pain levels, but for the nausea it does.

I can't tell if it's related, but almost everytime I stand up from sitting, I get near "blackouts" - like when you stand up way too fast. Only this happens to me a lot.

I was recently tested for B12 and Anemia because it runs in my family, but they found out in the blood tests that I'm Vitamin D defficient.

Can anyone help me?
