My 17 year old daughter has been dealing with daily vomiting and stomach pain for no apparent reason. She has been hospitalized 3 times. The vomiting got so bad, she was throwing up 15-30 times per day. They have run tons of tests and cannot find any physical reason. Now they are saying must be disconnect between brain & central nervous system. They want to send her to Mayo clinic for 3 week intensive therapy program. If they don't fix this, I'm afraid she will die. She has already lost 50#, has become depressed because she is basically stuck at home because she cannot function. She is very tired. She is cold all the time. She has a constant headache 24/7 that never goes away. I'm afraid if they don't figure this out, she will die. How long can a person continue to live like this?
