Sick and Tired

I have a pretty early schedule to begin with, as I normally get up for work around 3:30A.M. At 2:30 I wake up with stomach cramps and proceed to vomit. This is not the first time. In fact, in the last month and a half, roughly guessing (as I stopped counting at 43...seriously) I must be somewhere in the nature of 55+ times. That's pretty fucking serious. Really to me it's FUCKING DEADLY SERIOUS! Now, I have been to the doctors 12 times, seen a specialist, had an upper endoscopy, every test known to the doctors except CT scan, MRI and the Dye test to check for blockage. I have been to the E.R. I have missed 1.5 months, of work with the exception of 2 days. (thankfully I work for a ROCKING company and they are incredibly supportive and just want me to get better) I have been on 9 different medications, including one that just barely came on to the market, so new in fact most of the doctors didn't even know what it was. The specialist prescribed it to me. All this and they still ARE NOT SURE WHAT EXACTLY WHAT IS WRONG! Yet through all of this I am told that they think it is gastritis or GURD. They are prescribing meds based on that fact. Truth is none of them are working. Each one is worse than the last. I really am at my wits end with this. I am about ready to tell them to check me in to the hospital and do whatever test needs to be done to figure this out. Unfortunately, I am not seen as a priority. What is happening to me is not considered serious enough to be hospitalized so I am just prescribed a new med and sent on my way. Does anyone out there have any ideas where to go from here. Short of going JOHN Q on the hospital I am at a loss.
