    Two weeks ago this sunday I went into the ER for severe nausea and abdominal pain. This was diagnosed as GERD and I was given a Omeprozole for stomach acid and Promethezine for nausea. The Promethezine did nothing, and after a few days was switched to ondansetron (Zofran substitute). Unable to sleep for a week, my family doctor started running tests for H Pylori which all came back negative (both blood and stool tests). Today I was taken of all previous medication and placed on metoclopramide. I went to the hospital to give more blood (covered by insurance) to test my pancreas, liver, and thyroid. They also scheduled an appointment with a GI specialist. For the past two weeks I've been very unable to sleep due to very severe nausea. I've propped my head up, taken precautions eating, and done everything in my control to aid my condition. I need help. The pain and nausea is very localized to my stomach (perhaps upper intestines close to the stomach as well) I can't sleep or lay down; I can barely eat. If an endoscopy is scheduled, I dont think I'll be able to make it the ~3 months it'll take to get in.
    I can fall asleep for approximately 1-3 hours before waking up drenched in cold sweat, giving it everything I have not to throw up.
