I have not been able to keep food down for almost 3 weeks now and it has become so painful when i throw up. have been t a doctor and they can't find a problem. Liquids do stay down but only in the form of tea.

It sounds like something very

It sounds like something very serious is going on if you are unable to keep food down for over 3 weeks. I wish I had a definite answer to your question, but unfortunately, I don't for many reasons.

Please note that I am not a physician and cannot diagnose, nor would I do so, even if I could, without a proper physical examination and the proper laboratory tests.

Why is it that you can't keep food down? Are you nauseated before eating? All the time? Does anything make it better or worse? When did it start? What other symptoms are you having?

It may be that your doctor needs to do more testing or perhaps it would be wise to get a second opinion if your regular doctor is being unhelpful.

The one thing that is certain is that being unable to eat for over 3 weeks is not normal. It is a definite sign that something is wrong. It could be anything from reflux disease to a cancerous mass in the gastrointestinal tract. Truly there is no way to know without more information.

My best recommendation is for you to work closely with your doctor to determine the underlying cause of this problem and then undergo appropriate treatment. Consider getting a second opinion if necessary.
