Stopped Marijuana use & now very ill

So I've had acid reflux since I was about 8. I've had ulcers in my stomach and esophagus since I was 15. I've gone on bland diets for months at a time and took prilosex and zantac, nothing helped. Then I started smoking Marijuana and it's like I don't even have stomach issues. I'd get the occasional heartburn after certain foods but not horrible. I've been smoking for two years. Well now I'm quitting for two weeks just to reset myself and I have never been so sick!I can't eat without throwing up or having a horrible pain in my stomach. The acid reflux is crazy. I've been taking prilosec and zantac both again it doesn't help. I literally consume less than 250 calories a day counting the 7 up I drink. I've been eating nothing but bread and crackers, occasionally turkey breast with my bread. I eat a few bites then I'm done. I love food. I hate this. I don't want to be dependent on Marijuana but it's the only thing that makes me feel normal. I have missed work two days in a row now. I've only stopped smoking 5 days. Help???
