I have been having severe nasuea and gagging for 4 weeks straight. The only relief I get is when I sleep. Everything I try to eat just turns my stomach and I gag so much that I end up in the bathroom dry heaving, yet never throwing up. I am in tears all the time because it is very difficult to live like this. I have taken a leave of absence from work and am in bed most of the day. I was prescribed Reglan and Phenergan fo the nasuea and neither has helped. I have had xrays, an ultrasound and a hide-a-scan done on my gall bladder, as well as bloodwork and everything has come back normal. I ended up in the hospital for a few hours yesterday and was given a couple of bags of fluid through an I.V. because I am so dehydrated from not being able to eat or drink. They prescribed Zofran for the nasuea and Xanax for anxiety. That is because I gag so much I end up with "the shakes" like you get when you have a fever and get chills. My stomach is queasy all day, every day. And, I always feel like there is something touching the back, right side of my throat. Imagine sticking your finger down your throat and how that would make you need to gag or throw up. That is the feeling I have constantly. I now have to have an endoscopy done and am terrified of them putting something down my throat. Has anyone out there had these symptoms or this procedure done? If so, what were the results or the diagnosis? I am very scared of having to live like this and really appreciate any help you may have.
