OK, I'm going to suggest something, it's just an idea. I have had serious stomach pain for years, eating a normal-sized meal caused intolerable pain and there were lots of days when I felt too nauseous to go to work. I take a TCA, and they are well-known as analgesics- the one I take, nortriptyline, is on-label for pain disorders. It's not known how it does this (whether it's part of the antidepressant activity or works through some unknown other channel) but its efficacy and that of amitriptyline is well known. The SSRI's can aggravate stomach problems, so you might want to be aware of that too.

Just to close, the TCA's aren't real popular around here anymore, but they've been researched to death- you can find better info on them than on their competitors just because they've been around longer (than anything except the MAOI's). Good luck searching for meds.
