prolonged flu like symptoms

My wife has been very ill for about 3 weeks now. She has been complaining of headaches and ear aches, also vomiting everytime she tries to eat something. Her bowel movement has not really been effected. I took her to see her doctor after the first week because it started with a rash, and we were worried. He informed us that it was something viral and had to run its course. It is now 3 weeks later, she has been hospitalized twice and hooked up to IV, they have tested her blood and urine continuously, with nothing showing up. Now they think she is suffering from depression and that the symptoms are due to that. I find it very hard to believe that it could be depression causing her to vomit everything she eats. I am very worried, she is now at home after a 3 day stay at the hospital, and as soon as she tried to eat something it all came back up. What am I to do, I can not keep watching her sleep and vomit for another week.

Re: prolonged flu like symptoms

They have done several blood test for random anomolies and it all comes back normal. Is the lyme disease test more specific?
