I'm 16 and healthy and I've been sick since the end of July. One night after dinner I got severe stomach pains and then I vomitted 6 times that night. Over the past two months I've had severe stomach pains mostly in the upper abdomen (especially after eating), vomitting, headache (sometimes) and dizziness (sometimes). I have been admitted to the hospital twice for testing and all of the tests have come back normal. I've had 2 Gallbladder function tests, 2 ultrasounds, 2 endoscopies, a colonoscopy, numerous blood tests, test for parasites and a Barium x-ray. All the tests have come back normal. In the beginning the docters thought it was Pancreatitus, but a second ultrasound dispproved that. I've seen three GI docters, the first said it was all in my head, the second said that I had Nonulcerous Dyspepsia (which is basically the symptoms of an ulcer without an ulcer), and the third thinks it's IBS. I have tried Pepcid, Nexium, and Prilosec (proscribed by the docters) and those did not work. I've been on Carafate and Reglan, which didn't help, so they took me off of that. Now I am on Bentyl for the IBS, and it doesn't seem to help. I am in pain 24/7 and I have not been to school but 2 days. Can someone please help me?

  • holy crap!!! i just remembered, before i got sick i was in North Carolina with my aunt and uncle and on our way back to the house from dinner, my aunt found a tick in her hair. later that night i threw up like 3 times, we thought it was just something i ate, but they all ate the same thing i did. I came home a couple days later, and that's when I got really sick. thanks for the suggestion.:)
