Vomiting, discomfort in stomach. Gastric problem or psychological problem? Done endoscopy

My would be wife is suffering from uneasiness in stomach and vomiting tendency for the past 1 year almost. First doctors suggested that she may had gastric ulcer but nothing found like that. Then it came down to psychological vomiting. Doctor told us that she has psychiatric problem of tension , anxiety and depression . And because of all these she vomits and unable to eat also that uneasiness in chest persist in her body for some days. In last 1 year, we had to admit her to hospital almost 14 times. But we are still unable to find a solution of her problem. Is it gastric problem or psychiatric problem? Please suggest. Two days ago endoscopy was done and gastritis problem is found a bit. Still she is feeling that uneasiness after eating her lunch or dinner specially rice.

Thank you for Query and Welcome.

She is suffering from Dyspepsia. Abdominal fullness after eating, Inability to complete a normal sized meal, Upper abdominal pain/burning sensation, Vomiting tendency etc are the usual complaints. Co-existing emotional stress can make it worse. There are so many causes of dyspepsia such as peptic ulcer disease, Gastroesophageal reflux, Malignancy, Irritable Bowel, Functional dyspepsia and so on.

Here, Gastritis revealed by endoscopy can be the cause. Lifestyle and food habit modification, H. pylori eradication, Acid-supressing medications, Anti-emetics and prokinetics, emotional support etc are treatment options.

Follow gastroenterologist's advice for effective management.

Hope, this helps.
