  • http://www.gi.org/patients/gihealth/nausea.asp a good page on nausea and vomiting... in that it says "Early morning vomiting often occurs during pregnancy but may also be seen in subjects with kidney failure. " i think i know of another illness in which morning vomiting may happen (if it isnt psychriatritic caused, something like stress of going to work may cause morning symptoms in some, one of my daughters used to vomit before school over school stress).. i'll update this post with the other medical condition im thinking of, once i check to make sure my thoughts are correct.

  • i'd been wondering about Addison's disease in your case but there is hardly anything online about morning vomiting in it thou several Addison's patients have had an issue with morning vomiting. I was thinking Addison's as i know that can cause vomiting and cortisol cycles with our bodies meant to be producing more when we get up in mornings. (Hence i wondered if you had cortisol issue). Probably not what your issue is but a few with Addison's disease did say they have gotten morning vomiting. If you have any Addison's symptoms other than just the vomiting keep that in mind. (it may be a good idea if you look it up as Addison's can be very dangerous and is often missed by doctors).... i did come across the following in my searching ) "17) "A COMMON and sometimes disturbing cause of MORNING VOMITING is the irritating effect of a post-nasal discharge , frequently due to excessive smoking". Also, POST NASAL DRIP can be aggravated by GASTRO-ESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE AND/OR BY A SINUS CONDITION!!! " ..... best luck

" ..... best luckhi tania, thanks for your reply, i think the answers should be quite correct, i have sinus problems in the morning, nose blockage, blew my nose hard and also clearing of my throat. swallowing salivas, for about an hour or so. i am also a smoker. i also realised everytime i have a big meal or a heavy dinner i feel like i need to blurp, but i am not much of a blurper, i ***t instead. and i am always pretty gassy. would use mints and chew gums in the morning to curb my nausea. thansk for your reply.

  • You all are a bit out of the box on this one.... way to obviousTo the original post... Sounds like bad acid reflux. Mostly genetic, but can be triggered by many lifestyle factors. Mainly... stress level, what kind of food you eat- stay away from fried foods, if you eat before bed- within two hours not a good idea, amount of alcohol you drink- lock it up and lay off, and lastly exercise- try doing more of it if you are not already. What I would do:Your doctor is an idiot for giving you antacids. They just lower your stomach pH making your body think that the stomach contents are too basic, in response your body produces more acid, thus making it worse. Get on an OTC acid reducer like prilosec. All it does is literally block protein pumps from making acid. You should feel some relief in 5-10 days. But don't take for longer than two weeks. Also, all the other stuff mentioned above will help control the condition. Just try to relax a bit and eat healthy.

Double dose omeprazole type agents will often relieve this along with proper diet and avoidance of caffeine, tobacco and alcohol. If not well in a few days you should have a work-up by a gastroenterologist.b Wgt loss, night sweats and back pain which wakes you from sleep would warrant more thorough evaluation. A family physician who knows you well would be a useful start.

It has tainted my life but I refuse to let it ruin it. The doc has diagnosed "unluckyitis" to coin a phrase. My kidneys are fine, I'm not diabetic, I am given Zantac after an endoscopy showed minor irritation but it does very little. It's definitely got a stress component, though of course feeling like you're going to vomit causes stress itself, leading to a vicious circle. Like you, chewing gum has helped. I get stressed if I am caught without gum now so have a plentiful supply stashed here and there. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I have started gym again recently and my diet is reasonable. Ive had a period of unemployment due to redundancy so the last few months have been stressful and I have felt a bit worse than usual. Started a new job this week, still some anxiety over that which I try to manage as best I can, so been retching more than usual. But sometimes it just comes over me in a wave for no reason I can discern. Yup, it sucks. I'm with you shaun.

  • I suffered from morning sickness from early eighties, now it's going over and some mornings I wake up hungry as a wolf and can actually also eat a proper breakfast.My problem was caused by caffeine uric acids, which don't leave the body, but accumulate in the tissue. The acids seep into body's water at night, and when you start walking they spread in the blood circulation. The condition is called caffeinism (chronic caffeine poisoning), but is poorly documented and routinely misdiagnosed.I have been cleaning my body from caffeine waste for good three years now, and now I'm starting to feel normal again in all respects, other that that I have those caffeine uric acids stored in my feet, ankles, knees, hips and lower back, and they melt from time to time, causing burning, stinging pains and muscle pains.The link below gives you a simplified description about what to do if you want to clean your body. It's based on scientific knowledge and papers about the matter and my own experiences. This is the only way to get back from caffeinism dead alley.http://brainlaunderette.blogspot.com/p/how-to-stop-caffeine-dependence.html

  • Yes, it sounds like serious acid reflux, and exactly what happened to me. Get something like Prilosec prescribed as it's the acid that's probably causing this. Also I have a high intolerance to taking vitamins in the morning, even after breakfast, and must take them later in the day.
