Have you checked the side effects of your medications?  As for the mouth sores, try Gly-oxide or Colgate's Peroxyl.  They both leave a great deal to be desired in the taste department, but they work wonders.  It may take a couple days, but I have found relief with either one of these. 

The reason I ask about your medications, I had Salsalate give me splitting headaches and only recently discovered that the increase in my heart meds gave me the worse case of vertigo I've had in ages.

The nausea and abdominal problems could be GERD.  These are best dx'd by a Digestive Disease doctor.  I take Nexium and when the spasms start I need to use Lidocaine Hydrochloride Viscous. 

You really do have to be your own advocate.

Poochie, This Is Rostradamus. My meds are oxycontin,vicodin, occassional 10mg valium, 350mg soma, Singular 6yrs now for COPD and Vit-D. I have bad to"seek immediate help" reactions  to EVERYTHING else they've tried for Sjogren's and my collapsing spinal colum. Ive been posing these questions and more pressing ones to multiple doctors for years.      Example MY blood pressure systolic drops as low as 81 maybe lower since below 90 I start to drop and it is hard to thinks clearly. Getting up I sometimes fight; trying to make fists and flex muscles to pump up enough to get out of bed without falling. Over 3 years ago I started telling doctors, My wife as well. and we get refered. This is the way of it in southern California.  After two years and at least 5 doctors told of problem, I finally was Prescibbed atilt table test,which would have given a difinitive answere.  Went to the hospital and the cardiologist did every test but: had a baby, then Christmas. and haven't heard from him since. Called, Files are lost in the shuffle.              3Rd Onocologist wants to treat the spine befor it gets worse still. All radiology reports say it looks like cancer and degenerative disc disease. But the can't name it; Doesn't fit exact criteria.  My Mother,a nurse of over 30yrs died in my home from the exact "NO NAME" cancer; it's on her death certificate.   Insurance won't OK a Pet scan needed befor treatment.    I AM TRYING!   I just want some practicle knowledge from those dealing with just some of my issues.  I see 6 doctors,. Every time I go out, hat UVB 60 dark sun glasses long sleeves. I drop a minimum of two days in bed , then the mouth and tongue sore , the face&scalp sores blisters, rough lession and peelind skin,plus central nervous symptoms.  I get the "Butterfly rash" , I'm Showing Lupus specific factors for over 8 months . Besides the commom factors and swelling spleen for years. I keep pionting it out to different doctors as I go thru the "Specialist Shuffle". I've ASked'"Wouldn't a biopsy of the different types of scalp lessions be diagnostic?"  I know it can identify cancers that attack bone as well.       My wife is in tears,and not handleing it well at all.  We've seen over15 doctors not including my 15 day $76,000 non-diagnosti hospital stay,or the next one, 5 months later.  They upped my pain meds so I could walk a little. I went not for pain pills but to see if something broke after I fell.               Those that know me know I'm not a whiner. I just want some answers so I can function.     My mouth-tongue sore get so bad iI can't talk or eat.   Doctors aren't going to listen after several issues. REALITY.        I just want learned tricks and practical advice.   Fustrated, Rostradamus.
