Having trouble keeping food down
About four years ago I had a period of six weeks I threw up everything I ate. I ended up having my gall bladder out, as this was deemed the culprit. The vomiting continued the past four years, but was rare. About a month ago the vomiting became more frequent, it went from perhaps once a week to almost every day. I was vomiting up half of what I ate.
My GI doctor put me on Nexium, rantadine , and an anti-nausea medication. I was told to eat a bland diet, and to take the anti-nausea pills a half hour before I eat. The vomiting isn't as frequent, but it is still several times a week. I'm not eating much now. Looking at food makes me cringe. I eat several times a day, about the amount of a granola bar 5-6 times a day. After eating I begin spats of burping.
I'm tired all of the time, and have hand tremors due to the anti-nausea meds. If I don't takes the meds I mostly don't keep my food down.
I normally vomit within 5-10 mins after a finishing a meal if I am going to vomit at all. When it happens my whole meal is purged.
I'm tired all the time now, and have trouble functioning during the day.
My doctor wants me to give the meds 4-6 weeks and then see how I am. Then he will run other test. He wants me to do a barrium swallow, but I know I would not be able to drink it. I can't handle that much liquid at a time.
I'm becoming frustrated.
