Stomach issues I’ve been suffering with for years with no help!

Posted by cotton @cotton, May 22, 2019

I have been having a stomach problem I can’t find an answer too as to why I get extremely sick at my stomach every time I have a Bowel Movement, my GI Doctors I have seen say they don’t know why this is happening to me just that it is a complex issue the Doctor doesn’t seem to understand how very sick I get It doesn’t matter if my stool is normal, diarrhea or constipated I still get the awful nausea..I have gastro esophageal motility disorder & gastrointestinal motility disorder and bile induced gastritis..I’m feeling desperate to stop this bathroom issue…The medication my primary Doctor has given me for nausea doesn't help…. I would appreciate it so much if anyone has this problem if you would share your problem with me & what you do for it & WHY it is happening…Thank you all so much..

Hello JK, I live in the Oklahoma City Metro area we do have a very large Teaching Hospital in Oklahoma City, I will check it out I have not seen a G.I. Doctor from that Hospital..I have seen several different G.I. Doctor with no help with my unusual problem they all basically tell me the same thing..Honestly I just feel like giving up & stop trying but I know that’s not the attitude to have I’m just so tired of getting so terrible nauseated while I’m having a bowel movement by the time I finish I’m so sick I can hardly get back on my bed & I stay that way for hours..It’s crazy it’s a relief to go to the bathroom but I just dread it when I have to give in & go..I just know in my Heart some Doctor would know what is going on I just haven’t found the right Doctor yet..JK I appreciate your suggestion & concern Thank you so very much .. I will check out the OU teaching Hospital I have tried everything I know to do…Just talking to you is a great help! You Take Care & Thank You again..

@cotton @hopeful33250 has some good questions there, have you had problems before, or surgery to which it could possibly be related?

With these problems going on for so long make sure you find a hospital that has an excellent reputation for gastroenterology. I generally google to make sure I am on the right track. Fortunately, I live in southern NH so Boston is about 55 miles down the road and I use Mass General for just about everything. On most rating sites they are in the top 3 hospitals in the country for most specialties, along with Mayo and Cleveland Clinic, and Johns Hopkins generally comes in up there or in fourth place. I know nothing about hospitals out your way, but teaching hospitals are generally a good place to start.
