Hi All. I posted this middle of last year but thought it was time to re-post and see if there's any fresh ideas.

Main Symptom: 24x7 Nausea, which has become worse over the last 3 months.

I also get pain in the stomach occasionally, generally a bit achy (probably because I eat so little), and over the last couple of months I've started getting little red spots appearing on me (I've got around 20 now, they don't disappear, or fade after I press on them.)

Tests I've Had:
Endoscopy and Colonoscopy - clear
2 x Ultrasounds of abdomen - clear
Hida Scan - good as gold (doctors words, not mine)
Barium Swallow CT Scan - clear
Blood Work - only abnormality was elevated billirubin
Gastric Emptying Scan - ok

What I've tried:
Elimination Diet
Chinese Herbs
Lived in the bush (middle of no-where, not even electricity) for a month
Antidepressants (was on for 12 months, have stopped now - made no difference)

I'm convinced this is physical. All started after a bout of food poisoning. I'm so unwell I don't even leave my house anymore...

Hoping someone has some answers/suggestions. Thanks.
