A week ago I started vomiting everytime that I eat. I was diagnosed with vertigo, and given antivert for this. The antivert helped a little bit with nausea, but I still throw up when I each more than a few bites of food. I was then put on a strictly liquid diet for 2 days and ttold to start eating normal, bland food again on the 3rd day. I have thrown up everything other than water and gingerale that I have eaten or drank. Then, about 3 days ago, I started having a pain in my abdomen, right by my navel and a little bit to the right side. The pain is worse when someone pushes and lets go, and worse when I walk. It is a constant pain though, even when I am sitting or laying down, I feel it. Its only really sharp pain when someone pushes on my stomach. I went back to the doctor, and she performd blood tests, urinalysis, x-rays, and a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis, thinking that I might have appendicitis or an ovarian cyst. All of the tests that were done came back normal. My appendix apparently looks pretty healthy, and I have no cyst on any of my organs, and all of my other organs seem to look okay as well. I had to go to the emergency room last night because the pain got so bad. The emergency room doctor said that all of the important tests have already been done, and that I appear healthy enough to go home, so I went home with nothing more than pain medicine, but no real treatment and I was told to go back to my regular doctor. I am starting to feel like I am crazy. My doctor says that all of my symptoms point to appendicitis, but my WBC is good and my appendix looks okay in the CT scan. What can this be? :confused:
