Upper GI problem, frequent nausea, bronchitis

I am a 31 yr old female who suffers from chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, and gerd (but infrequent heartburn). In the past 2 years I have had frequent nausea, bloating, diarrhea following a trip to YUcatan.   6 months after trip i became very ill for 3 days with bad nausea and vomiting, diarrhea coincident with e. Coli in town water.  I required hopitalization, rehydration and anti-nausea medicine.  Following this, eating 1/4 cup of Ice-cream caused 4 hrs of severe vomiting. I can no longer eat any trace of milk product, have had anaphylaxis with salmon 2 x and can eat only low fat and non acidic, non spicy foods. I am otherwise healthy, weight wise and run 4x per wk. I was tested and positive for H. Pylori, since treatment gloating has decreased but I still feel nauseous 5 days out of a week and still get frequent stomach upsets after eating despite careful elimination of foods. I feel like I constantly have post nasal drip but am on allegra, flo-nase, and take advair and prevacid30mg. I had an upper endoscopy which revealed mild gastritis and esophagitis, and was given carafat and told, sometimes we just don't figure these things out by the GI (gee thanks). Strangely benadryl seems to help feeling of constant sinus draining and nausea. I have always been prone to colds, and get bronchitis every time and am wondering if could
be linked to an immune deficiency? They also saw white rings in esophagus but biopsies didn't reveal anything.  You're advice would be much appreciated!

  Hi...the post nasal drip will add to ur GERD and nausea issues....I would suggest talking to ur ENT dr to see what else can be done to help u with this issue as it may help the others as well.

Did ur Dr talk to u about trying a probiotic?...ask about this since u did test positive for H,Pylori.

Good luck and post updates
