Chronic severe nausea/dry-heaving

I have had every test under the sun - hidascan, full blood panel, h-pylori, ultrasound, stomach emptying, stomach CT, brain MRI, endoscopy, etc. Everything has come back normal and the gastroenterologist is ready to diagnose me with a stomach migraine. I get frequent bouts of severe nausea which can sometimes lead to dry-heaving, but never actual vomiting. Sometimes this can last for 5 minutes or as long as 2 hours. Also, the dry-heaving can relieve the nausea in some cases.

Any ideas or suggestions????

I'm not a doctor, but every time I get a migraine, which I've been getting for 16 years, I've noticed that during the most severe migraines, I'm very nauseous and even thrown up...which made my migraine so bad, that I had to got o the hospital for pain meds. The only medicine that got rid of my migraine (and the nausea) was Imitrex. I've even gotten the imitrex shot. Have you tried Imitrex?

It's definitely not migraines. I was diagnosed with functional nausea and vomiting syndrome brought on by severe anxiety. Now the key is to convince the short term disability company that doing a neurocognitive test is not a "common" way of diagnosing anxiety.
