Need Advice- No Diagnosis From Doctor Yet


Thank you for listening. This whole thing started back in September. I became really sick- vomiting, nauseous, diarrhea ( no temp, chills or fever). After a day I felt so bad, I went to the ER and they diagnosed me with E. Coli poisoning that I most likely got from Burger King the day before. They gave me nausea medication and IV fluids, and told me that I should be fine within a week. Within the next few days, I went back to the ER again with the same symptoms, again they said it was E. Coli and gave me the same treatment, in addition they gave me a CT scan which came back fine. They told me to see a gastro doctor.

The gastro doctor took a bunch of blood test to see if I had a virus or parasites, again nothing. I was producing green stool, vomiting heaves every morning, shaking. It was really terrible. As time progressed ( into October) the nausea has stopped, my stool is normal, and the vomiting has stopped. He agreed that it was E.Coli and told me that sometimes when you have E. Coli poisoning that the virus can inflame and damage your digestive system and that it would take “quite awhile” to return to normal.

Another couple of weeks went by and still not relief, I saw another doctor in the gastro office who diagnosed me with GERD that could be possibly caused by E.Coli. I have been taking Protonix, Zantac, and Phengran but still can only eat chunky soup or else my stomach will hurt. My stomach quivers throughout the day and feels sore like someone punch me especially after I eat. I also wake up in the morning with my throat bubbling and gurgling. Two weeks ago, I had an endoscopy which turned out fine and last week I had a gastric emptying X-ray which showed nothing. I am confused and frustrated Do you think this is what is going on? Any suggestions/advice?

I don’t have any other major medical problems, however, I do have a B12 deficiency that I am working on building up.
