5 long years of bloating, pain under rib cage, much more!!

Someone I love has been suffering for 5 long years. We live in Canyon Lake, Tx. Her symptoms are as follows... extreme bloating (like 10-11 months pregnant)and very tight belly. Extreme full feeling. pain under right rib, sharp stabbing/twisting. usually immediately after eating. sometimes back pain... New symptoms,pain under entire rib cage. feels like something moving. spitting up blood, tablespoons. Happens whenever it wants now. no longer triggered by eating. Symptoms get slightly worse with every onset. Doctors can not find what's wrong. Emergency room visits are futile and non productive. Specialists/gastral can not find anything. Tests that have been done are... seitascans, heitascans, upper/lower gi, blood work, catscans, xrays, stomach pump. Tests not yet done because we can not get a referal... Mri, a camera pill, exploratory surgery. What we know it isn't... gall bladder probs, crohns, ulcers. Small intestine not examined with camera yet.
WE NEED HELP!! A DOCTOR THAT CARES AND WILL DO WHAT IT TAKES TO FIND A CURE!! they do not consider her to be dying so we can we can not get referals to further examine. HOW DO THEY KNOW SHE ISNT DYING UNLESS SHE GETS A FULL EXAM< NO HOLDS BARRED. ANYONE... PLEASE HELP!! THANK YOU TO ALL THAT CAN HELP!!
