I'm 14, and my weight is average.
Last time I knew, I was healthy.
But for about four months now, I've been getting nauseus almost every morning since around January. Now lately, I've been getting sharp pains right below my ribs, the top of my stomach, and the left and right side below my stomach, next to my hips. I haven't thrown up due to the nausea yet, but it's getting a little out of hand. A couple weeks ago I was in the hospital for personal reasons, and I complained about the nausea and the pains. They gave me a sonogram to check out my stomach and everything around that. They even checked everything to make sure I wasn't pregnant. They didn't find anything. They hooked me up on sensors around the areas I was complaining of pains to make sure there weren't any irregular heartbeats, and there wasn't. When I was discharged from the hospital, they gave me nausea medicine, which was Ondansetron, a generic brand of Zofran. This doesn't help my nausea. I'm getting tired of nausea. It's making me miss a lot of school. Can anyone help me, or give me ideas of what's happening?

  • You need to see a specialist - such as a GI dr (GastroIntestinal doctor), they specialize in stomach problems. The ER isn't going to be able to diagnose you unless its a problem with a quick fix. If it's a chronic, ongoing problem, they rule out the most serious stuff and send you home. You need to see your regular dr, and possibly the specialist mentioned above.
