authentic: Oh boy, I’m so sorry you’re going through this. I don’t have the same, but suffered for years before being diagnosed with a hiatal hernia/IBS/gluten sensitivity. A whole mixed bag of fun!! Stomach issues are the most agonizing.
Do you take probiotics regularly? Aside from my change in diet and lifestyle, taking probiotics made a world of difference. Good luck!! Half the battle it always seems is the diagnosis, so at least you know where to go from here 🙂

Just wanted to provide an update. I’m still experiencing all the same symptoms. Yesterday was pretty brutal, I had a small amount of fries, a couple bites of a grilled cheese sandwich…and got sick twice right after.
My family doctor doesn’t think I have Gastroparesis. She’s sending me for a colonoscopy. I book the appointment today. I’m not really looking forward to it, but it will be nice to have some answers and hopefully a treatment plan.
I was doing some more research on my symptoms… and it also sounds like I could have Crohn’s Disease. I didn’t realize that apparently you can have ALL the symptoms I’m experiencing with that as well. The vomiting, everything. So maybe that’s what my doctor thinks it could be. I’m anxious to get the colonoscopy done.
Thanks for all the suggestions everyone!

If the results come back normal try seeing a acunpunture. My Mother-In-Law was in a similar situation. At first she had terrible upper stomach pain. Shortly afterwards she couldn’t keep anything down and kept vomiting out. Even drinking water would come out eventually. She was stuck at the hospital for a month and the docs couldn’t find anything wrong. Eventually we decided to take her to a well-known chinese doctor and he quickly diagnoise it was two veins in her stomach that was causing the pain and he performed acupuncture for more than a month before she felt normal again.

Yikes. This sounds similar to the pain I had when I got my gallbladder out. I was in intense pain and could only walk hunched over. My doctor didn’t know what it was and prescribed Prevacid 24 hr. She said if it didn’t get better, to go to the hospital. That night it only got worse and I threw up all night. I went to the ER the next morning and they had to do emergency surgery to remove my gallbladder as stones were stuck in my duct and it was inflaming my pancreas. After that, they put me on a low fat diet. I’ll be honest, in the beginning it was hard, but gradually you can eat things you like in moderation. Fried foods are the worst, but carbs such as pasta and rice are totally fine. All in all, eating clean is your best bet.
