My brother in law is vomiting weekly for the past few months for no reason. He has had a camera down his throat but they saw nothing. He recently had an ultrasound and found pollops. The pollups are not related though. We need some advice.

Has he been trying a special diet?Has he changed medications or tried a new medications?Is he running fever?Could he have hepetitis?Are there cold and flu like symptoms -- gastritisIs there pain in the upper right abd. or does he eat greasy foods too? (have checked for pancreatitis or cholecystitis or gallstones)Is he diabetic? May be what they call ketoacidosisCould be having abdominal migraines Just some oddball ideas to ask and consider

  • ive been going through the same thing. it doesnt matter what i eat, but atleast 2-3 times a week ill throw up randomly. my diet hasnt changed, and there's no abdominal pains. ive been more tired as of late, and my nose is congested alot, probably from my sinus's. i eat all sorts of food and nothing has ever bothered me, and this happens even when i eat non greasy and healthy foods. my metabolism makes me eat about 5 times a day, and im still a stick.no new or old medications, and another thing is that i will stay nauseous for about 30 minutes before i vomit. even afterwords i still feel like vomiting more.

  • There is this disorder called cyclical vomiting syndrome that is related to the migraine family but instead of causing migraines it causes bad vomiting spells.This is not a gastrointestinal thing but it is neuroligical in nature.You need to see a neurologist.:cool:
