More unusual is tinnitus. Doctor gave me something for hay fever! In all honesty, not being able to eat without puking up is not a symptom of hay fever. I think it is gastroenteritis. Nobody to turn to for help, I am feeling very weak and low.
A dull pain around your belly button
Good choices include Jell-O, popsicles, and soups with clear broths. Also good are the clearer juices, such as apple juice and cranberry juice. With that in mind, here are some other strategies for keeping down food if you’re nauseous. Once you’ve quenched your thirst, move on to foods that are soft and bland.
If vomiting or diarrhea is prolonged or the person becomes severely dehydrated, fluids and electrolytes given by vein (intravenously) may be needed. Because children can become dehydrated more quickly, they should be given fluids with the appropriate mix of salts and sugars. Any of the commercially available solutions designed to replace lost fluids and electrolytes (called oral rehydration solutions) are satisfactory.
Make sure you don’t get dehydrated when you have the stomach flu. Try eating raw ginger. And Zofran is a live saver if you have a prescription. Pepto-Bismol also helps with the acid reflux of vomiting so much. Then the attacks started.
So, waiting so much without the proper medication, I also got Barrettâ€™s esophagus. I’m 14, and I think that this is something I should not have to go through or worry about. I mean Iâ€™m not saying Iâ€™m the only one, but sometimes it worries me, like I wonder if it’s gonna hurt me somehow, and not a lot of people understand what it is. They say “oh ya, GERD is just heartburn, no big deal” but to me, it is.
I have been living on Advil, but stomach pains don’t go away. It’s no fun, I am still feeling bad. My gastroenteritis (stomach flu) lasted a week.
Let your primary care doctor or gastroenterologist know if youâ€™re unable to eat due to nausea, as this may put you at risk for dehydration. Take antacids. Antacid tablets or liquids may curb nausea and acid reflux by neutralizing stomach acids. Wear loose-fitting clothes. Tight-fitting clothes put additional pressure on your stomach, which can contribute to acid reflux and nausea.
- But even if you’re throwing up, some of the water you drink will be absorbed.
- Affected individuals may only experience episodes several times a year or as frequently as several times a month.
- Mavromichalis et al. however, demonstrated underlying inflammatory lesion in 29 of the 31 migraineurs undergoing endoscopy, supporting a causal link between GI inflammation and migraine.
- By the time the rash appears, the disease is often in a very advanced state and may not respond to treatment.
- So it was the virus which made her anxious not the anxiousness that made her sick.
- My gastroenteritis started at 5 am on a Tuesday and ended 4 am the following Wednesday.
The exact cause of cyclic vomiting syndrome is unknown. Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) is an uncommon disorder affecting both children and adults and characterized by recurrent, episodes of severe nausea and vomiting.
In adults, episodes tend to occur less frequently, but usually last longer for 8 days. These recurrent, characteristic episodes are extremely similar within each individual, often beginning at the same time of day, with the same severity, duration and associated symptoms, as in previous episodes. Episodes often occur in the early morning hours or upon awakening in the morning.
Nevertheless, fat is one of the most potent influences on gastrointestinal function. (It tends to slow down the gastrointestinal muscles while it causes the muscles of the gallbladder to contract.) Therefore, it is possible that fat may worsen indigestion even though it doesn’t cause it. Moreover, reducing the ingestion of fat might relieve symptoms. A strict low fat diet can be accomplished fairly easily and is worth trying. Additionally, there are other health-related reasons for reducing dietary fat.
By the time I was 18 and starting my first year of college, the heartburn was so bad that I could no longer sleep laying down and had to prop a pillow up against the wall near my bed and attempt to get a couple hours of sleep every night. Eventually the heartburn became so bad that I was experiencing it all day long and not just at night time. When I was 19 I went to see a gastroenterologist who did an upper endoscopy and diagnosed me with GERD and told me that I had esophageal ulcers. Between the age of 19 and now at age 27 I have tried almost every single medication that is out there for GERD.
Thirst relief can be especially difficult when it’s hard to keep anything down. It’s even worse if your health symptoms include diarrhea. But even if you’re throwing up, some of the water you drink will be absorbed. If your stomach cramps have started recently and you also have diarrhoea, the cause may be a tummy bug (gastroenteritis). This means you have a viral or bacterial infection of the stomach and bowel, which should get better without treatment after a few days.
Skin-color changes, accompanied by rapidly worsening pain
The resulting infection, called cryptosporidiosis, is usually mild in otherwise healthy people, but it may be severe or even fatal in people with a weakened immune system. It is most commonly acquired by drinking contaminated water.
