chronic ear and stomach pain for past 6-7 months

User Profile
I have had chronic stomach and ear pain for the past 6-7 months. I am not certain if the two are even related or it is just coincidence that both started at around the same time and have continued together The stomach pain is pretty much a constant feeling of nausea and/or the need to burp or throw-up for some relief, with neither helping. Nothing seems to increase or decrease the onset of the nausea. Have had biospsies done, ultra sound and HIDA scan with no results. The ear pain feels like there is a bug crawling in my outer ear with sharp stabbing pain in the inner ear. At times a muffled or blocked feeling accompanies the pain. An ENT specialist has found nothing wrong with the ear and same goes for an MRI. Both ENT doctor and gasteologist state that the two pains are not related but it seems awfully coincidental that both started at the same time and have remained. help anyone?

constant nausea and occassional sharp pains with no relief from burping and I don't actually vomit. No dizziness but sharp stabbing pain in right ear coupled with the tingly crawling feeling and dull ache

Don't think there is any relation between both,if you have constant nausea and specially in the morning,maybe due to anxiety.

have nausea all day...sometimes ear pain follows the stomach pain and visa versa...cant tell which impacts the other but sure seems like a strange coincidence that both pains came along at the same time and have stuck around both gradually getting worse
