User avatar Hello,

Nausea results from dysfunction of any part in the digestive tract thus other associated symptoms are very helpful to find out the underlying cause.

You have been investigated for many disorders like Gall bladder diseases, gastritis, gastric ulcer, Intestinal causes etc., All came back negative according to your message.

GERD is still a possible cause and the finding of Lower esophageal ring (Schatzki) is a complication of chronic exposure to gastric secretions (acid). The ring subsequently results in swallowing difficulties and chest pain, but symptoms depend on the degree of severity.

In one third of GERD patients , radiological signs of esophagitis and esophageal stricture (ring) is found.

Most patients with GERD improve with change of their lifestyle, and modifications without the need for surgical correction.

Follow up with your doctor is essential.
Hope you find this information useful.
Good luck.
