Ican't get a good diagnoses. I have episodes of severe nausea and vomiting and pain. It gets so bad I must be hospitialized, because of dehydration due to all the vomiting. An episode can last anywhere from a day to 20 days. Doctors tell me I have post tramatic stress disorder. So I take antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills such as Lexapro and Ativan. But I still go into episodes even with the medication. I can't work, i can barely eat...I need help. This has been going on since I was 14. I take phenergan for the nausea but it don't work so good any more, so I started smokin pot to stop pain and nausea and keep me from going into an episode. It works but i can't live my life high.
