Daily nausea and gnawing feeling in chest

I had a endoscopy done in 2009 which determined I had gerd. I was prescribed Prilosec and I took that for a few months. It got my heartburn and nausea under control. That is until December 2011 my nausea came back. I don't get heartburn anymore because I watch what I eat. I now get a gnawing feeling in the chest. Like inside is irritated or something. I get that a few times a week. I have nausea everyday. Some days are worse then others. I also get a hallow or empty feeling across my mid abdominal area. I had another endoscopy done in february and it showed no acid reflux and no ulcers. They also checked me for h. Pylori and that was negative. They then did a ultrasound to check my gallbladder for stones. I have no stones. Today they did a HIDA scan to check the function of the gallbladder. I get those results back Monday. Does this just sound like acid reflux? I'm really concerned as I am down to 94lbs. I hope I can get an answer soon.

Welcome to ehealthforum

If you had gerd symptoms once then they can be controllled by means of medications and diet modification but recurrence is common.It seems your symptoms as nausea,chest discomfort are due to reflux disease itself.

Though gall stones can also cause this but it is difficult to comment without investigations results.Wait for the HIDA scan report.

Relax yourself as stress can further worsen the existing symptoms.Kindly visit a Physician for evaluation.

Take care!
