My wife has had vomiting issues since she was an infant. She has been to many gastroenteroglists and no on has come up with any thing specifect. she use fenigren cream fenigreg pills scopeamine all will help to relive the symptons but completely stop the problem. She has been on cancer nausea meds this also did not stop the vomiting, she has had incuclousive upper and lower G.I, with no noted abnormalitys. I have noticed in my time aruond her that stress will increase the symptoms but that is not an overwelling issue. I have also noticed that when she dose vomit that there is not the acid smell nomaly common to vomitus. she is more sensitave to motion sickness than manny but it is not uncommon for her to be driving and get sick. She told me at one time she hadbeen recomded to have a stomace pace maker but she had never heard of this nad was told by another doctor that this was snake oil. We live a rural area of Oklahoma and do not know where to look for help she can be fine and literly in seconds and for no appaerant reasom become ill plese help.

  • has she had her cortisol levels checked? Im thinking maybe it could be something like addison's disease or low cortisol as i know many with that arent diagnosed unless they have a life threatening incident with a crisis (and even then many dont get diagnosed). Stress makes addisons symptoms worst. "Because the symptoms progress slowly, they are usually ignored until a stressful event like an illness or an accident causes them to become worse. This is called an addisonian crisis, or acute adrenal insufficiency. In most patients, symptoms are severe enough to seek medical treatment before a crisis occurs. However, in about 25 percent of patients, symptoms first appear during an addisonian crisis. Symptoms of an addisonian crisis include sudden penetrating pain in the lower back, abdomen, or legs; severe vomiting and diarrhea, followed by dehydration; low blood pressure; and loss of consciousness. Left untreated, an addisonian crisis can be fatal." In addison's... as far as i know.. the most common symptoms are nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
