Really? Doctors told me the same thing and I ended up eating out of a feeding tube in my arm until they finally started looking at all other alternatives. Even the therapists said I was fine. It ended up being fibromyalgia and the nerves in my pancreas were over-reacting. Half of the people with GI issues that are adults with vomiting they write off as rumination syndrome because its the easiest thing to explain away if your bloodwork comes out fine. Don't believe the first doctor that runs tests. Go to another doctor OP, they are not all created equal.
I have gastroparesis and went from doctor to doctor for several years because they couldn't find out what was wrong. A gastric emptying study was done and that's when they found out what was wrong. Try getting a new gastro doc and getting this test done as vomiting is often a huge symptom.
58, you beat me to the punch. OP, definitely see a GI ASAP. Gastroparesis is becoming one of the most commonly overlooked diseases. Not only do you vomit pretty much 24/7, your blood work has horrible results, you're constantly fatigued, the thought of eating makes you feel worse (no matter how much you love food), and you feel dizzy (always either a little bit, decent amount, or extremely). Please get a Gastric Emptying Study and/or Gastric Swallowing Test. I would hate to hear you end up with a Groshong Tunnel in your chest plate and a Jtube in your abdomen, with more hospital visits and admissions than you can remember, such as myself. Good luck!
Yes, stress can do a lot of damage. I don't usually notice my stress because I bottle it up too. I don't have any physical symptoms, but that doesn't mean it hasn't come back to bite me in the ass. I've had a couple of mental breakdowns and panic attacks from bottling up so many stressful things. So maybe stress could be the reason for the random vomiting. I still thinks he should get another doctor's opinion.
You should have vomited in his office and then asked if that was in your head too.
I was doing that for awhile, later I came to realize that it was because I was stressed about something that I kept denying.
