Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
When did this start?
I have had this for about 6 years. Just been dealing with it.
Have you had any tests?
When I had insurance I did. I had a barium test, blood test, & urine test
HAve you had any blood tests or an endoscopy?
my doctor I had b4 thought it could me from stress or job related. So, I quit my job and self employed now. That kinda helped.
Do you have anxiety?
last blood test I had was about a year ago. and he said everything was fine
I never had an endoscopy
yes I do have anxiety once n a while
I see, and what question on this condition would you like me to answer?
um what can I do to stop the heaving and vomiting problem? And, what might be the cause of it? I hear it can be very serious
And why does it only happen in the mornings?
t may be due to a gall bladder problem, like stones, or it may be due to duodenal irritation. The only way to stop it is to identify the exact problem, but a drug like reglan can help the symptoms
I heard of people removing there gall bladder. Is this an option? Would a stomach ulcer also be the cause?
A stomach ulcer could cause these symptoms. but there would be pain
Gall bladder removal is an option
if u can live without it. Then what is it there for? Sorry about all these ?s just been frustrated for so long about this. And, my doctor I had at Kaiser never can give me the right answer
You can live without your gall bladder, many people do
how would you know or can tell if you have liver damage? And, can this be a cause?
There re blood tests that can detect it
You may ask as many questions on this topic as you would like
It is no problem
what I have. Would you call it acid reflux?
thank you for being here for me :-)
If you have a burning sensation in your chest it is likely acid reflux
I do get that from time to time. And, I tried Prilosec , nexium, and any other ones they my have at the drug store. None seem to do anything but, make me throw up
Then it may not be reflux, or you may need a higher dose (prescription dose)
in your opinion what would the best thing to do to find out exactly what it would be? endoscopy? Is that when they go down your throat with a camera to see what is going on?
or a biopsy?
Yes, that is endosopy, and it is likely the best test, but they can do blood tests first
I guess I need to find some affordable insurance first. then go in. How expensive would it be to do those things without insurance?
The blood test would be about $100, but the endoscopy could be thousands
wow! I blood test it is then.
thank you so much for ur time
You're very welcome
how much can a blood test tell?

It can tell you if there are liver problems
and it the liver is bad it would cause the same symptoms?
It could be a sign of a gall bladder problem
and can u take something to repair the liver
It depends on the problem
okay thank you. Will this be a one time charge of 24 dollars?
Yes, that is correct
The liver can repair itself
cool. Thats a re leaf.
Have a great night!!! and Thank you again.
