I am not a doctor, in fact biology makes me queasy. I had a problem for several months and they couldn't figure it out. My stomach wouldn't empty, I looked pregnant. Then my blood pressure started going through the roof. My physician told me there was nothing wrong except that I had high blood pressure. I argued that one doesn't just wake up one day with high blood pressure. 6 doctors later it turned out that I had a pyloric ulcer. The pylorus is the sphincter between the stomach and whatever comes after it. The sphincter was inflamed and not working properly so food couldn't pass out of the stomach into the intestines. 3 weeks of amoxycillin and prilosec and I was as good as new. Hope you feel better, it can be awful, even worse when the doctor thinks you're nuts.
