Ok, my 17 y.o. daughter started feeling nauseated and vomiting way back in July.  The condition has worsened so that now she vomits daily, sometimes 10-14 times a day.  She can keep some food down, but some comes back up.  Sometimes, it is simply liquid that she cannot keep down.  She has been tested for celiac disease, lactose intolerence, had an endoscopy, gastric empyting study, and a gall bladder scan which have all been normal.  She has been tested for parasites and bacteria.  She has normal red and white blood cell counts.  They have used her blood to test for everything, including liver problems.  The current gastro doc says it is reflux, but she has never had any symptoms before of indigestion or burping or anything.  She still does not.  She just vomits.  And no, it is not self-induced or a weight issue.  PLEASE HELP!  Anyone have any ideas?  I have made another appt with a different gastro doc who specializes in children.

Can she drink liquids and keep them down?
If so, have her drink high protein drinks and veggie juices to keep her from starving.
I hope you're able to find a solution.
