Welcome to Ask a Doctor a service
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice

The given symptoms may not be due to any major illness so nothing will come in testing but it seems to be geriatric symptoms (Age related). Balanced diet according to age, vitamin supplement and good water intake may help or improve the condition. Else the symptoms could be due to dyspepsia and for that Omeprazole with Domperidone and enzyme preparation can be used.

Hope I have answered your query

My daughter has been suffering for 4 years now. Her gallbladder was removed to ease her symptoms but made them worse. She has lost almost 40 lbs. Has nausea and vomiting at least twice a month, dizzy spells diarhea, and bloating. Alot of test have been done on her with no definate diagnosis. She is seeing a naturpath now who is treating her for yeast and fungal infection and is considering lime disease. Meanwhile she is wasting away. She has a 4 yr. old who needs her. Conventional medicine has let her down and convinced her she is a hypocondriac. I see her throwing up and trying so hard to be normal.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...My 8 year old son is c/o nausea w/vomitting, dizziness while laying down and has run a temp around 102 for a couple of days. He is not eating much but is taking in fluids. He has no underlying health issues. He does not c/o neck pain or stiffness. We are treating temp with ibuprofen and acetomenophin. Any idea what may be causing this and does it sound emergent?
