Patient Comments: Nausea And Vomiting - Experience

Please describe your experience with nausea and vomiting.

Published: July 28

For at least two months, possibly longer, I have had terrible stomach aches for apparently no reason. The pain is sharp and is localized in the top of my stomach just under my diaphragm. I also have had bloating, gas, and occasionally diarrhea. I ate next to nothing for two days and the pain left, but within a week's time, the pain came back. However, when the pain came back, it came with nausea and vomiting. The pain lessened with no food, but when I tried not eating when the stomach ache returned, I ended up vomiting even more. At least when I ate, I only had pain and no vomiting. I have also had a low-grade fever almost on a daily basis. I am clueless as to what is causing this.

My daughter suffers frequent attacks of vomiting and nausea. I am not sure of the cause and the doctors keep telling me it is a virus. One doctor also told me it could be an intolerance to dairy products but they did not test her for this. I feel it is more than a virus since it occurs so frequently. She is only 4 years old.

I feel extremely nauseated when my routine changes, for example when going back to work after a holiday. Sometimes it is more of a feeling of longing/missing something that triggers it. I can go for periods of time feeling fine until I think back on the thing that has changed, and then I suddenly feel quite sick again. I do not feel like eating but force myself to because otherwise I feel hungry and unwell. I do not actually experience vomiting.

I have nausea, vomiting and low grade fever. My blood tests are with normal limits. I have nausea and vomiting on an empty stomach. This has been going on for months. I had my gall bladder removed in September. I have a hiatal hernia.

Two weeks ago today, I had lunch at an upscale cafe. Within two hours, I vomited in my car on the way home. I was sick two more times that day. Since then, I have felt nauseated several times a day. Yesterday, two hours after eating a banana, I felt nauseated, and vomited several times. I do have reflux problems, from time to time, during the night. I have mild heartburn every day now and subtle pain here and there in my stomach.

I was watching my son play the Sony PS3 and was feeling fine when all of a sudden I felt overwhelmingly nauseous. It was at first to be thought to be a video game induced thing. But now 12 hours later, it is still with me. I took Dramamine before I went to bed. Felt fine this morning. I drank coffee and felt fine. Then I became hungry. I ate and now I feel nauseous again. I think it odd how it came about. Antacids and Anti-gas medications do not do anything. I am going to try Dramamine again and maybe not eat solid foods for awhile, as well.

My friend has had two episodes of profuse vomiting. She will vomit like nine times and then end up going to the hospital for treatment of dehydration and then sent home because they cannot find a cause. This just happened again, it has been nine months since the last episode. The hospital ran only basic tests.

My seven year old daughter is experiencing nausea now for over two weeks and the doctor keeps saying it is a virus. The nausea is constant, variable in intensity and especially bothersome during a ride in the car. About 75% of the time she just wants to lay down and rest. In the two week period she has experienced two days of vomiting nine days apart. She eats very little and isn't much interested in her normal activities. I have insisted on blood work (yesterday) and we are awaiting results currently.
