Pain in abdomen, burps, diarrhea, vomiting. No heartburn or indigestion. GERD or acid reflex?

Hello, I am a 21 year old female and I have recently been experiencing some stomach problems. It starts with sulfur burps and then I get diarrhea. I then get this extreme pain in the upper middle part of my abdomen, it is really bad, probably worse than contractions. It usually lasts throughout the night and then I am able to vomit. After I vomit a few times I seem to feel a little better but it usually takes 2 to 3 days to fully recuperate. Its happened maybe once before but this last time I had it for about a week, it went away, and then four days later I got it again. The doctors cannot seem to figure it out and say that it's GERD or acid reflux. I never get heartburn or indigestion so I'm not sure how it could be that?

Thanks for posting your query.
With the available described details, there could also be possibility of partially controlled acute viral gastroenteritis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ gastroenterologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for complete blood count, ultrasound imaging, and serum electrolytes, renal function test.
You should take complete antibiotic therapy, antispasmodics, probiotics, antipyretics, if needed.
You should maintain your hydration status by taking potassium rich liquids.
Take soft diet along with yogurt and banana.
Avoid milk and all milk related products.
There appears to be least possibility of GERDs or acid reflux.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
