I have been throwing up daily, typically 10 to 20 times a day. There is a lot of belching, and I have lost some weight. OTher than that I feel fine, and there isn't any naseau. I have been to a gastro specialist who ran many tests and can't find anything wrong. i then went to a neurologist who didn't seem to think this is neurological. They seem very uninterested, but I am still throwing up every day! I am looking for any advice or information to help me figure out what to do next!

  • Its a long shot but have they looked at your duodenum? If the valve there doesn't work it can cause constant vomiting...Good luck

  • I agree, My girlfriend they culdnt figure out why she had episodes of vomiting as she did. She turned out to be intolerant to poultry and their eggs which she had almost everyday. until we figured it out. but it can be life threatning if it happens too often so i am unsure if that is your case. If I tihnk of anything else ill let you know

  • If your losing weight, could you maybe trial something like Metoclopramide which is meant to help control vomiting in other conditions?
