Symptoms...docotrs not sure what is wrong

- bad pain between upper point of the rid cage where stomach is located
- little to no apetite
- constipation
- light-headed/dizzy
- fatigued
- nausea
- bloating
- sensitive to cool air sometimes
- sensitive to touch stomach area (between upper point of rib cage)
-sometimes I feel like I can't breathe
- Burps a lot
- takes hours on end to digest a small amount of food like chicken noodle soup
- REALLY hard to digest meats (pain gets worse & nausea)
*I can't really list everything that I can't eat that I would like to eat.
Over the past 2-3 I have had real digetive problems. I went to my family physican did a few tests. He tested my blood sugar and thyroid. Both turned out fine 2-3 years ago. The family physican thought I had stomach ulcers so he sent me to a General & Laparoscopic Surgeron to see if she could confirm it. She put me through a stomach scope, gallbladder ultrasound, and a HIDA scan. The stomach scope said I had a hiatal hernia, and gastritis. The percent my gallbladder was running 2 years ago was 82%. About a month ago she put me through another HIDA scan and the Gallbaldder was running at 70%. All of a sudden she wants to take the gallbladder out when most doctors say it needs to be 35% or less to take it out. I have recent gone to another doctor's office for a second opinion who specializes in Gastrointestinal he is going to be doing another scope from the Esphagus to the small bowel and everything inbetween. He stated he wasn't real sure. After this scope is run he was thinking about sending me to get another test to check on the how the stomach contracts the food. Does anyone know how they would fix that problem? Anyone have any suggestions on what could be wrong based on the symptoms? I just want the testing to end and just fix the problem quickly! It has gone way to long!

No one can pinpoint what is wrong with me and it is getting extremely frustrating! My husband and family is frustrated with me not being able to eat what seems like anything!
