Unhappy The Unsolved Problem

My dad has been sick for months and months...he's been to two ear doctors, family practioner, hospital, stomach doctor and a couple other doctors and a chiropractor. NONE of them knew what it was. They just give him patches to wear to keep it away but the patches are starting to make his skin red and incredibly sore (in the ear area where he puts one) He can't be dependant on them, because they don't always work...here are his symptoms:

Nausia/Vomiting/Sick
Fever
Dizzyness
Migraine
Burning stomach

Right now he is laying in bed because it's all he can do. Has anyone had this same problem?

Docs say his blood pressure is good. Hearts good and everything. Only thing that isn't "good" is his stomach.

Does your father smoke? Smoking plays a tremendous role in alot of illness's i believe that are pretty much an unsolved mystery. I hope your father gets well. Take care. God Bless.

I have no clue what is going on but I can comment on the patches. He needs to be sure to rotate the sites of the patches every time he applies a fresh one and be sure to wash the old site well with soap and water. If he is running a fever I wonder if his white cell count isn't up indicating an infection some where. I am also wondering if maybe some sinus problems aren't involved as sinus infection/sinusitis can cause terrible head pain that triggers a migraine, it can make you feel dizzy as well being nauseated from the drainage and the migraine and yes you will run a fever due to the infection. You say he has seen an ENT doc but did they ever do a set of sinus x-rays? This may be a long shot but it seems to me he is grasping at straws and this would at least be one possibility.

He doesn't smoke.

He's had x-rays for his head, but not sure if that includes the sinuses...but I think that was mainly for his brain. I'll suggest he look into sinuses next...
