Sorry to hear you are having problems too. I have had severe epigastric pain for a long time now and noticed that certain foods make it worse (red sauce, ranch dressing, anything even slight spicy, nuts). I had been tentatively diagnosed with IBS - constipation type years ago and it does flare up more when I think I am going into a lupus flare. I also have food aversions now. Can't eat fresh veggies and most of the food in my fridge that I buy thinking it looks good turns out to not be very appetizing when I think about eating it. I am living on applesauce, cheese, yogurt and pudding a lot lately cause it seems like the only things that sound good. I did find some Carnation Instant breakfast that is full of vitamins and have been drinking that each morning. Seems to taste good. I wish I could tell you that your stomach problems are IBS related but I also feel you should see a GI doc for some answers if this keeps up. I have also been taking Tums to help with the nauseasness.
I hope you can find a new PCP. My PCP I just started going to a couple months ago is absolutely wonderful and really listens and is truly a compassionate doctor but she is leaving so I am getting a new PCP (assigned by the insurance company). Luckily, it is the PCP my parents both go to and they really seem to like her. Guess I will find out soon.
