Chronic abdominal pain, headache, nausea, chestpain, jaw pain, black specs in stool. Suggestions?

I have been suffering from chronic abdominal pain for two years. These past three weeks it has gotten alot worse. The pain is increasing, and have been to the ER. They said I need to see a GI specialist but unless im throwing up blood, they can t do anything about out I just have to wait. I m pretty sure I have an ulcer . At first it was just abdominal pain, headaches and nausea . I am now have chest pain and jaw pain. I find it difficult to eat, and have found dark black specks of stuff in my stool. I have pain killers and stuff but I am really worried what should i do? The pain gets so bad that i get severe anxitey!! Help!!

Hello lild , welcome to healthcaremagic
Your symptoms are may be due to an upper gastrointestinal tract lesion and i would surely ask you to get a upper GI-endoscopy done along with a ultrasonography of your abdomen. Are you a heavy smoker ? or do you take " pain killers " on a regular basis for other complaint ? Are you hypertensive ? please get your blood pressure checked at the earliest . A gastroenterologist can help you out with this problem of yours and I strongly recommend an appointment with a gastroenterologist of your choice. Meanwhile got to a lab and get these following test done for you, stool for OBT( occult blood test ) and complete blood picture. hope i have been able to help you. Take care.
