17 years old and in pain

Hello,
My daughter is 17 years old and has pain under her sternum and vomiting/nausea this has been going on for at least 2 yrs. She has had her gallbladder removed and lots of tests(2 upper GI scopes, colonoscopy, barium studies, ultrasounds, x-rays, pillcam, gastric emptying test, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some) Everything has come back negative except for the gastric emptying test, they put her on reglan for a short time but it didn't seem to help so they took her off of it. Could gastroparesis be causing her pain? She is getting very defeated with most tests coming back negative and she's afraid she will have this pain for the rest of her life.
