10 such episodes now. Very little warning and very few constants to to draw from. All require at least hours in EL or hospital stays of days at a time. Massive amounts of anti nausea meds with large amounts of pain meds endsy torture. I can be good to go in as little 1 hour and occasionally 24. I'm afraid that one of these times I can be helpless and alone before I can act. Aware that I can puke out as I read and overheard an EMI say yesterday.
I've seen the best Cleveland has to offer in medical care repeatedly and no diagnosis or effective plan has had any results.

  • You may want to look at Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. It is very difficult to find a doctor whose heard of it. Also lots of test to rule out everything else. Go to cvsaonline.org. Also there are a few support pages on Facebook. So sorry you have been suffering. Your symptoms sound very familiar.
