im hoping someone on here can help me. begining of this year i had a sinus infection and got on antibiotics, then my blood pressure spiked to 165/102, got off the antibiocs, no change,,, then a week later i started vomiting at night for about a week. then after that everything i ate i would vomit within about 30-40 minutes after i started eating. i was put on every imaginable anti nausea medicine out there from ginger to phenergan to zofran. ive had my gall bladder removed and and upper endoscopy done, both resulted in 'I DONT KNOW' and i was referred to another dr. he also ran some tests , an MRCP and a small bowel emptying study, which again came back normal and i was passed off again. this new dr put me on a bunch of meds, bile replacement, acid reducer, coating agent and an antidizziness and antinausea meds. seemed to help, kept food down for anywhere from 1:00 to 1:30 min. for a litte while. 3 months later im back to throwing up 30 minutes after i start eating, im losing weight fast, have NO energy, constant severe stabbing abdominal pain and constant lower back pain... and am scared of the whole esophageal rupture. my vomiting is pretty violent, which puts me at risk... i was perfectly healthy active loving life kind of person until january of this year.... now all i can do is eat and throw it back up and wait until the drs decide im not bulimic and wanna start doing some more aggressive checking..... anyone ever heard of things like this before???????? PLEASE HELP!!

  • I have a seven year old daughter who has been throwing up about every 3rd or 4th day for the past 6 weeks. Just exactly like you said - 30-40 min after she eats. Today it was about 3 hours after she ate. She usually feels much better after she actually throws up. She is tiny and has lost weight. They are doing an MRI on her the day after tomorrow to see if she has a tumor or anything putting pressure on her brain. They have also mentioned an abdominal migraine which is mostly in children 5-9 - but who knows, this could be something you could look at. Also, sometimes extreme constipation can cause vomitting. I wish I had an answer for you, it is so frustrating and I am so sorry you have been feeling so awful. I hope you can get it all figured out.
