I get a pain in my stomach every morning and the feeling of being sick (which sometimes I am sick) this has been going on for nearly a year

GERD? On an empty stomach, sometimes middle of the night, and after certain foods, medication, or stress, those with gastroesophageal reflux can have exacerbations. More complicated than this but worth considering if you haven't already. Please discuss your symptoms with your doctor also. Feel better!
