JG, because of how severe the pain is you mentioned and because of where you mentioned it is I am going to ask you to do a search and then you will have something else to ask your doc about
The pain you describe, the
location and the episodes of vomiting sound very much like my husband. For 18 years we thought that it was part of his Lupus. Well we recently went to a new GI, actually he saw my GI and we now have a dignosis. I will warn you that it is as hard to get as getting a CD dignosis because you have to rule out everything else first.
There is no test that can be done to say for certain if this is what you have or not, but I personally know that a name will get you a different response from ER.
Okay here is what I want you to look for Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. I am not a doctor I am not telling you that you have this. I am asking that you look at it and talk to your doctor.
Good luck and keep posting.
