Peptic Ulcer or IBS
 
five years ago I was diagnosed with lactose intollerance and IBS. I completely changed my diet I'm now vegetarian/pescitarian and eat little or no dairy (sometimes I can get away with it).

It never did solve this problem of knawing, burning pain in my stomach that I've had off and on since I was a kid. Always on an empty stomach, almost always better with food and water and accompnied with nausea when severe.

When I had the scope done there was no ulcer to be found...so why do I wake up every morning with burning pain in my stomach? Why do I almost always feel nausia, burning and weekness instead of regular 'hunger pains'? How do I treat this if it's not an ulcer...can this be chalked up to low blood sugar? ...should I go back for new tests? Could they have missed something? Sometimes the pain is really bad and I often can't get back to sleep again until I've had a full meal...suggestions anyone? Thanks for your help.
