What should I do?

For about four months now I’ve had this pain in upper abdomen area of my stomach right at the v of the rib cage. This all started when I was playing a video game that gave me terrible motion sickness and vertigo and I lost my appetite for almost two weeks. Granted my anxiety was through the roof and that could’ve been the cause of all this. I’ve had a CT scan, ultra sound and blood work done and it all came back normal but this pain hasn’t gone away. I’ve taken omeprazole, carafate and ranitidine but it doesn’t seem to help. I know I need to do an endoscopy and I had one scheduled but I had no one to take me because honestly I’m alone in all of this, my family isn’t very supportive and I have no one to drive me 40 mins to the GI for the endoscopy. I was hoping someone could help.

So, that upper area could be your gallbladder.  Are you at all over weight?  Is it worse when you eat fatty food?
No not overweight at all and when I did the ultra sound they found polyps but they said it was nothing. As far as food goes it really doesn’t make a difference what I eat. Before all this started I was always eating pretty healthy aside from the guilty pleasure of fast food. It all happened so fast that I really can’t tell what food or drink bothers me and I really don’t wanna keep guessing anymore.
