I have had hpylori in the past, I have asthma and menaires disease. I have just turned 40 and am still somewhat overweight. I also have had arthritis since I was 16. I have lost about 45lbs in the last year with a few lifestlye changes. I was told by my family doctor that I tested positive for rheumatoid factors but when I went to see a rheumatologist the results were negative. I often have trouble sleeping and wake up extremely nauseous and usually vomit. this happens a couple of times a week at least. I have been told to lose weight o I have and it just keeps getting worse. It seems like I have lost enough weight that I should be getting some relief from the pain in my feet and the stomach problems I have been having if extra weight is the root cause. What would you say these seemingly random symptoms mean. I have often thought it might be an immune system problem but I am not a doctor.
