I went to my PCP but she did not care she diagnosed it as a allergy
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I've had some nausea spells but I thought maybe it's because I don't eat anymore
Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 10 months ago

I doubt that this is an allergy. This looks more like an abdominal pathology - the most significant sign is the lack of appetite.

Abdominal pain, lack of appetite, constipation and distention of the abdomen are all signs that point towards abdominal conditions.

Since, all the abdominal conditions mimic each other as far as the symptoms are concerned, it is difficult to tell which condition this might be without an examination and a CT scan or at least an Ultrasound.
I would suggest that you urge your PCP to conduct this or you can go to an Urgent care to get this done.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
