hi guys... bare with me as this will probably be pretty long. for the past few years i had some heartburn, wasnt bad... would just pop some tums and that'd be that. well in late 2010 (side note: I became very depressed and sleep deprived at this time, wasn't medicated for it at the time) i started feeling kind of sick (nauseous) before or after a meal. or just randomly through out the day. didn't think much of it. Then, one night in december of 2010 I smoked some marijuana (again, no idea if this has any effect just trying to be thorough) and that night i became very ill and vomited once or twice. since then, ive had serious bouts of nausea. Early 2011 i went to a GI who had a sonogram type thing done on my stomach and also an mri. neither showed any thing like blockages or masses. He wanted me to get an endoscopy done but i chickened out... terrified of this stuff. anyways. he said its a bad case of acid reflux and put me on omeprozale (one a day) and also vitamin E (forgot something, he diagnosed me with fatty liver disease as well, hence the vitamin e). Meanwhile my normal doctor put me on ranitidine for i think it was a few months. I was never 100% again but was pretty good for spring/summer of 2011. During this time i was on lexapro 10 mg a day and then went to prozac and decided to ween myself off it around id say august 2011. Well, september i became very sick when eating some mac n cheese. since then i have been really nauseous, i mean really nauseous. sometimes its all day for a few days in a row. ive barely eaten in this time. i mostly stick to plain turkey sandwhiches or more recently chicken soup. well, here lately ive lost a lot of weight and have been put back on ranitidine 300 mg a day and my omep was bumped up to 80 mg a day. at first it felt decent.. now.. food doesnt feel like it goes all the way down. it feels like it gets caught in my esophagus and creeps its way up a bit then eventually sinks down. i have no idea really what this could be but it scares the crap out of me. I dont know if its a blockage, just the gerd messing with me, or a hernia. either way its awful and im always at home sick because of it. i havent been myself for a long time. i dont want to live like this the rest of my life... also, i dont eat much,but i dont seem to have bowl movements much either.. even when i feel like i ate enough for a decent sized one. recently i ate some spinach and pieces of the spinach was in my feces.. it was also this way with pieces of pickle a month or so ago. could it be a digestive problem? ulcers? all of the above? someone please give some insight.. thanks for your time. one last thing, im very overweight. last month i weighed 399.. since then ive gotten up and excersized. i weighed myself the other day and my scale says 365... this cant be possible for one month? this also scares me because it seems like thats a severe drop in weight.
