I NEED HELP

I've been sick for over 2 mos, uanble to eat, lost over 30 lbs. When I do eat a little, there is gas buildup, belching, tightness in the upper abdomen area, constipation or diarhea (diarrhea). Very often, I get dizzy, have weakness in my legs and arms, feel like I am about to pass out. Ultrasound revelead gallstones, but the surgeon is against removing the gallbladder, since the symptoms suggest other problem. I am waiting for an endoscopy, and my doctor prescribed Nexium twice a day, which seems to be helping a little, but the dizziness and fatigue are not going away, and those episodes are very scary.  My symptoms started more or less 3 years ago with what I thought was a heart attack- tightness in my chest, dizziness, feeeling like I am about to pass out. At the emergency room I was told that it's an indigestion. I've had those "attacks" on and off during the past few years.  Since the last attack 2 mos ago, I've been suffering with the symptoms described above, and they're not going away. The doctors don't understand why I'm having the dizzy spells and weakness in my limbs. Please help.
