HELP! several cramping, nausea, vomiting, dry-heaving, diarrhea, hot flashes

So for the past year, I get these times where Im really sick. My symptoms include several cramping, nausea, vomiting, dry-heaving, diarrhea, hot flashes, sweats, some dizziness. Sometimes the symptoms are mild or severe. Today, I woke up this morning covered in sweat but the heater was turned off, and Ive been gagging and I have cramps, they hurt but I consider today to be on the mild side. A few weeks ago it was so bad I would of rather shot myself in the foot than go through that. Went to urgent care but they said it was just a stomach flu and if it got worse to come back in. Saw a doctor about it in March and they said that since it wasnt ALL the time it was probably nothing.  I'll have days where Im fine, like yesterday, and then days like today are quite common. I feel like these periods of sickness are taking over my life and I just want to be normal again.

It's possible you could be having gallbladder attacks.  I went through years of diarrhea, nausea, dry-heaving, & cramping (right between my rib cage) before the doctors finally figured out my gallbladder wasn't working & took the darned thing out.  You might want to ask your doctor to order a dye test to measure your gallbladder's ejection fraction (also know as a HIDA test):  http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/gallbladder-scan

This test basically tells how well your gallbladder is working & can also detect the presence of gallbladder stones.  I had doctors taking x-rays, doing endoscopes, collecting stool samples & everything else before they finally got the bright idea to do this simple test.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
The symptoms could be due to inflammatory bowel conditions such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, Celiac disease (gluten intolerance), lactose intolerance or IBS or irritable bowel syndrome. Severe acidity with gastric reflux can also be a cause and so also worms in stool. Hiatal hernia is another possibility. Liver and gall bladder issues too should be looked at by a liver function test and ultrasounds. Endoscopy, gluten sensitivity test, etc may also be required.
If you are a female and in menopausal age group then menopause could also be a possibility.
Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your doctor once. It would be a good idea to consult a gastroenterologist. Hope this helps. Take care!
