I have had stomach pains now for about 4 months. about a half hour after I eat. I end up usually end up throwing up (self induced) pain either subsides greatly or even goes away. Vomit is like oil sitting on water (thick) after I get past the thick it is liquid and then I stop. I have done blood work for a bunch of different tests, couple of different stool samples, upper and lower GI, the caulk drink x-ray thing, ultra sound of my abdomen. upper GI showed a little bit of gastritis but still the pain persists. I’ve tried nexium,assifex, prilosec, and nothing seems to be working can you give any advice? Or recommend a doctor in the tampa area that could fix me up?

Your pain may be due to severe reflux or possibly due to gallbladder disease (although this pain typically occurs a little sooner than 30 minutes after eating).
I would recommend that you see a GI specialist for further evaluation and treatment recommendations.
Unfortunately, I am not familiar with any specific doctor in the Tampa area.
