I am having an excessivley hard time lately when it comes to food. No matter what I eat I seem to get this pain in my chest/stomach that prevents me from being able to consume any food. The pain is so bad that it makes me almost through up, sometimes I do. I had mashed potatos the other day with chicken fingers and the pain was bad, Bread seems to be the worst. I can't eat pizza or drink tea. Last night I had a chicken pot pie and I was ok until after. I seem to do ok when I have hot sauce on my food, but I pay for it after. It's coming to the point when I can't eat at all, what is this?! I am making the assumption that it is an ulcer, but everytime I go to the doctor they laugh at me since I am only 23. Any suggestions as to what might be happening?! Thank you for your time.
