    Morning Nausea, Loss of Appetite, Burping, HELP

    Hi there, I am a 17yr old male. A couple of months ago I experienced a severe period in which I was frequently vomiting, lost a massive part of my appetite and felt constantly nauseous followed by obvious weight loss. I went to a doctor who diagnosed me with Gastritis and prescribed anti acid reflex pills and a course of antibiotics.The symptoms fortunately passed after a month or so during a a vacation.

    Recently however I have been waking up a very acute sense of nausea and am unable to eat anything substantial. IN trying to eat a normal sized breakfast I am incapable of swallowing and gag excessively to the point of almost throwing up. The symptoms get marginally better later in the day and I am able to eat a small sized lunch, but nowhere near as much as I used to eat.

    I am an avid gym goer and eat a 3000 calorie diet, heavily centered around nuts (almonds, walnuts) and milk. I do have a peanut allergy but can handle other nuts fine. I have cut milk and nuts out of my diet recently in relation to my symptoms to no effect.

    I have no reason to believe that it is stress or anxiety related.

    Any advice on the possible cause of the condition or similar experience would be much appreciated.

    I could have written this myself, it's horrible to have to go through. Unfortunately many gi problems have similar symptoms, so it's hard to say what exactly could be going on. I was diagnosed with gastritis from an endoscopy, I hope that's how you got your diagnosis because it's the only way to know you have it. My doctor now thinks I have a motility issue because I've not been responding well to the gastritis meds. The best thing you can do is see a gi specialist and please don't accept "it's all on your head" I've heard that many times.

    Thanks for your reply. My condition has really had a negative impact on my life recently, interfering with my school studies and social life. I couldn't agree more that this is not a psychological thing, I have no reason to be stressed or anxious and am in no way prone to panicking. If anything my weight loss is causing me stress. I have not had an Endoscopy, though I hope the cause of my symptoms will be better looked into at a doctors appointment tomorrow.

    Any more suggestions are welcome.

    Hi Sullivan, have you had any luck in figuring out what is causing your symptoms? I'm scheduled for a Barium swallow at 11am to see if they can find anything.
