I have been ill with severe upper gastric pain radiating

Customer Question

I have been ill with severe upper gastric pain radiating through to my back, severe nausea, fatiqued since June 2015. I went to the ER departments at both hospitals here in Kitchener Waterloo 5 times and finally on the 6th visit I was admitted. I was in the hospital from Oct1st to Oct 30th. I was sent home with a diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency and low cortisol. I am on many different medications. The vomiting has basically stopped but the nausea is terrible and the pain is the same. I eat very little. I am drinking a lot of water and ginger ale.
