You know that queasy feeling, the one that warns you that you’re definitely going to be sick? Soon, you’re rushing to the closest restroom, and your nausea turns to vomiting. Throwing up the contents of your stomach is something everyone’s likely experienced, and there are lots of different causes for this unpleasant symptom. Food poisoning can make you vomit, as can motion sickness, pain, viral gastroenteritis (aka stomach flu), pregnancy, medications, excessive alcohol, and even extreme shock or grief. In some cases, chronic vomiting can be a sign of an underlying illness, including neurological or GI conditions. People with celiac disease, for instance, experience vomiting along with other chronic GI woes. It’s also common with migraines, food intolerances, and other issues that may be mechanical or anatomic. Vomiting can cause dehydration, so hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! After a bout, make sure you replenish with lots of water, as soon as you can stand it. If you’re riding waves of nausea, try to settle your stomach with peppermint, chamomile, or ginger. The antihistamine meclizine, sold under the brand names Bonine and Dramamine, can be a godsend to those who are susceptible to motion sickness. If vomiting is something you experience frequently, make sure you talk to your practitioner. In addition to these holistic and over-the-counter remedies, there are also prescription meds that can help. Nausea and vomiting definitely aren’t comfortable, so we’re all for seeking a solution!

Not doing well mentally or physically. Throwing up and can't eat. Horribly anxious and my Borderline Personality Disorder is rearing it's ugly head badly. Feeling so abandoned. I just want to sleep and never wake up. I hate this.
Day 23 of the impaction. Nothing solid came out yesterday. Did one of my 2 daily doses of Miralax this morning and nothing. I ate some and my stomach ballooned right back up and hard, having gotten smaller and less firm. Staying nauseated and a little vomiting despite Zofran every 6 hrs. I'm thinking that surgery is going to have to be done soon. Lots of stomach noise and rumbling; I think it's trying to get things broken up but to no avail. This is getting so old and annoying!
I'm at the mental health clinic right now. I was told I don't have a choice. Took the Zofran and they're mixing the miralax and Gatorade now. I'm scared of my body's reaction since I won't be able to vomit.
Does anybody have any experience with Non alcoholic fatty liver and gallstones. My wife has both plus GERD and she is really having a hard time with it. She is always throwing up And always in pain and is unable to eat.Which is making her depression even worse.
Continuing with the I'm Impacted Saga on day 20, my mental health clinic nurse had me drink 64 oz of Gatorade with an entire bottle - 14 doses - of Miralax at the Clinic today. I had a few hours to do it in but drank it all in an hour. I had a little success... straight diarrhea but hey, I was going! Then I came home and vomited for 5 minutes straight. And I haven't gone again since. So, I dunno. Hard not to just give up/give in and say forget it.
