This started Thursday night at 10:00. I had eaten mexican for lunch and Burger King for dinner. All of a sudden I felt my food coming back up. So I run to the bathroom and sit at the toilet. BTW I have emetophobia or fear of vomiting. My husband brought me a Phenergan that he had because of his IBS. After taking it I started feeling worse and got so dizzy that I almost passed out. My husband took me to the ER and they gave me some more Phenergan and took about 5 or more viles of blood. 4 hours later I was discharged with a near fainting accident and gastroententis or stomach virus. I slept fine that night then the next morning I started drinking Sprite to try to keep hydrated and settle my stomach. My mom has kept me with Phenergan for my nausea. My symptoms have gone from nausea and weakness to worse nausea, little weakness, and stomach bloating and gurgling at night when it is time for bed. It has now been 5 days and I have been drinking as much Poweraid as I can (about a quarter to half a bottle) a day. If I drink a lot or too much then I get nauseated even more. I don't think I'm dehydrated but I do not urinate much. I have tried eating crackers and pretzels. After about 2 I get nauseated even if I already wasn't. I'm not pregnant, I was tested at the hospital (but they neer said anything) and I checked this morning. My stomach bloating gives me a dull pain in my upper stomach, like under breast bone and sometimes feels like it is burning. I tried drinking chicken broth tonight and it also made me nauseated. I'm so confused and am now scared since it has already been 5 days and I'm not feeling better. I don't know what is wrong. Can anyone help me??
