    3 years post Nissen Fundoplication

    Hello -- I am seeking help as I am completely miserable. I had a fundo done in early 2017 and actually had great success with it. Lately though, I've had extreme bloating even when I don't eat. It is so bad I cannot breathe properly and now my lungs are sore struggling to take in breaths. I had an upper GI that showed nothing to be causing this. I go through gas-x like it is candy with no relief, I've started omeprazole and I'm on week 2 with no relief. I've cut out all gluten....

    Chronic stomach problems

    I’ve been throwing up for most of my life. Usually for long periods of Rome. Ranging from three days to two weeks. I’ve been hospitalized many times over the years for not being able to hold food down or throwing up constantly. It’s been a long journey or tubes and scopes down my throat, mri, and just every no answers. Has anyone been threw this or has trouble with the stomach? I need help! No one has yet to tell me why this happens to me.

    GERD - Acid Reflux without the heartburn

    I am looking to see if anyone has experienced anything like what I have as i am starting to worry a bit now. So about 3 years ago I had my first incident when I choked when drinking a can of soda. I was put on Omeprazole for 1 month and it cleared me up, I quit fizzy drinks and continued to be fine, avoiding spicy foods too. 2 years ago it happend again and it was pretty much the same protocol, Omeprazole for 1 month and it cleared it up. Now, in December 2019 I ate a hot dog from the cinema and....

    intermittent nausea

    Hi, since 2 months I have been having some GI symptoms. Everything started with some nausea (no vomiting) that initially went away, but came back few days later. I had some other symptoms such as excessive gas and gas related stomach pains. After roughly a month, I visited a doctor here in Japan (on a business trip here for 3 months), had a complete blood-work done including tests for liver and pancreatic functions and some cancer markers as well as an occult bleeding stool test. Everything was fine....

    Ongoing issues

    For about seven years now, I get stomach aches and diarrhea EVERY night. It began as normal stools and eventually escalating to nausea and diarrhea, and feeling like absolute garbage. I have trouble distinguishing between heartburn and acid reflux and nausea. What makes it worse is that I spent so many days of my childhood with stomach viruses that I am absolutely TERRIFIED of throwing up. When I start to get heartburn or acid reflux or nausea, whatever the heck I’m getting every night, I freak out....

    Just my gallbladder?

    I am a 19 year old female--I am 5 ft 2 in and weight approx. 115 lbs. About 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with gastritis on top of having an inflamed gallbladder that works at about 12%. I have been taking Prevacid for those 4 years and I have yet to get my gallbladder removed, even though I am planning on it. I don't have any gallstones, but it is inflamed and there is family history of having poor gallbladders. I have always been bloated and uncomfortable after eating, but lately it has gotten....

    Vomiting After Eating Meat

    My son is 7 years old, active, healthy weight, healthy cognition, etc... When he was about 10 months old I stopped exclusively breastfeeding him and introduced him to solids per usual. We ate a non-processed plant-based diet in his first two years and slowly started introducing animal proteins into his diet after that. He doesn't have any allergies that we are aware of, but every time he eats ANY red meat or poultry, he immediately has stomach pain and he vomits within seconds (no exaggeration....
