So I have been having upset stomach and nausea almost everyday since February and is just getting worse. I took antibiotics in October, December,January, and March so not sure if it has anything to do with it. But after the last round of antibiotics is when it started. Firs of all I've lost weight I weighed 95 back in January and I'm down to 84 pounds and I'm 5'0" so I'm extremely underweight. Some days are better than others. I do get hungry sometimes starving like stomach growling like crazy and I'll eat. It seems like the nausea and upset stomach is just random. Sometimes after eating or sometimes in the middle of the night and I'll be nauseas for hours. No vomiting just bad nausea and just feel miserable. I went to one GI dr they did an endoscopy which showed mild erythema(reddening) and they did celiac disease blood test which was normal, gastric empty study which was also normal, fecal fat stool also normal my CBC was also normal. Well anyways I decided to find a different dr I showed her my endoscopy results and she explained to me that there was reddness and wasn't going to do any testing right now she thinks I have gastritis and gave me nexium and wants me taking probiotics. Well I did that for 2 weeks and still no improvement actually over this past weekend on Saturday and Monday I was so severely nauseated for hours I couldn't even move I felt so sick never vomtied but felt like I was going to. And the nexium made me constipated severely so I stopped taking it on Friday and then I finally had a normal bm yesterday. Anyways I went back to the GI dr on Tuesday and I saw a different dr and he is checking me for parasites so I did the stool samples, it was two of them one tube had formaldahyde and the other zinc sulfate to preserve you know what and just waiting for results which prolly wont be in til next week. He wants me to continue the nexium and probiotics which I just started the probiotics yesterday cause I had to order them online some VSL#3 capsules. He wants me to see a nutritionist but we can not afford it right now we are behind on bills and my dr appt are alreay $50 copay :/ anyways he said if I'm not better in 2 weeks he wants to do a colonoscopy oh boy... he said I could have IBS, or parasite or a brain tumor but he said almost always you would have womiting which I don't have so he isn't sending me to a neurologist anyways does anyone have any idea what could be going on with me I'm so miserable I'm losing weights I'm tired of having stomach aches my stomach has hurt for 3+ hours today II feel horrible and I'm sure in a couple hours I'll be starving and eat and it'll start back up alllll over again... that's what happened last night I was super hungry and ate a spicy chicken sanwich homemade with some bbq chips(Kettle Brand) and while eating my stomach started hurting then I took my nexium late last night and my stomach hurt for prolly 6 hours I would say and then this morning I woke up and stomach still hurt and then I got really hungry and then ate and all over again same thing been feeling sick ugh :/Answer Question

Google Diverticulitis. OR, Maybe your Gallbladder (an ultrasound will show stones if you have them).
