Symptoms 5-6 months duration,

Constant Nausea, worse 2-6 hours after eating.

Acid Reflux.

Weight loss 10-20 Kg in this time

No pain.

I have posted before about trying to get a diagnosis and you have all been very helpful. What I now need is to find out what tests I should now have done to proceed to a diagnosis. I would like to go armed with as much info as possible for when I next see my G.I Doc next.

Last week I had a gastroscopy/oesophago-gastro duodenoscopy on Friday afternoon.

I am waiting to hear the full report from my G.I doctor, to see where i go from here and what other tests and procedures needed.

I did speak to the consultant surgeon who did the test and he said no hernia, no ulcers, no indication of and malignancies or other disease. The only thing he mentioned was that I had a large stomach, I have no idea if this is significant.

I have also had a recent ultrasound of my Liver, intestines and kidneys, all normal apart from fatty liver.

Numerous bloods have been taken, all normal. I have been examined by a couple of GI Drs and again nothing found.

I have had an MRI and CT brain scan, again nothing found (unrelated)

I am not on ANY meds.

So has any one got ideas about which tests I need doing next,

Thank you,
