for the past 2 years i have been going throught some rough stuff and was curious if any1 could help or is exsperaincing th same thing or any similar symptoms. so far no1 has been able to help me, i have been to all sorts of doctors and specialists and they just push me off to another doctor and tell me there is nothing more that they can do for me.

my problem seems to be because of excess mucus and a lump in the back of my throat, and trying to caugh that lump out i gag a lot and throw up constanly, anywhere from 1-15 times a day. on top of that the excess mucus fills my stomach up and makes me very nauseus. iv'e noticed in the morings it is worse, exp when i take a hot shower thats when i throw up the most and gag the most. when i get active doing things/or when it is hot it seems as if the mucus is really thin and i get a lot more of it and i will get very nauseuas as well, but if its cool weather it seems to be really thick mucus and its hard to swallow. those are my main issues is the lump in the throat and all the mucus making me very sick and vomiting, and when i talk about vomiting it is vicious vomiting, i pop blood vessles, and just last month i had to get back surgery done because i threw up so hard i hernated one of my discs. this is ruing my life i cant do anything. after i throw up i feel a bit better nauesus wise, it takes a lot out of me since i do it sooo hard. i then just have a headache all day long because of it and will get sick at random times. as i said i get most sick in the mornings and also at night. i can'd do anything. im only 25 yrs old. i cant hold a job because of this and also had to stop going to college because of it as well.

here is some back round information of what i know already.. i have acid reflux, which i take nexium and prilosec for. the gasternologists also said i have a hyetal hernia after some tests, but says that shouldnt be the problem. the ent's ive been too took a cat scan of my sinuses and it just showed a slightly devated septum. they say thats not the cause of any of this, they put me on all sorts of different kinds of nasal sprays nothing seems to help. they reccomended that i try using a saline rinse, which ive tried and i can't use it it makes me gag so that is no help.ive tryed medicines such as zyrtec and mucinex it helped with the mucus by dried me out so much the lump in my throat was onthing left there and made it soo much worse with the gagging and throwing up. the ent's pushed me off to an allergist after all sorts of testing. i have no allergies. now from vomiting so hard i started getting big red marks on my cheeks and on both sides of my nose so i went to a dermatologist. she took a biopsy and it came back as “lupus erythematosus tumidus”. so she sent me to an immunologist thinking i may have systemic lupus. blood results determind that i do not. so i went back to the dermatologist to see how to get rid of these marks. she put me on a steriod called predisone for 2 weeks which helped get rid of the red marks and surprisingly i seemed to be a lot better. after she took me off of it i started getting sick again. the lupus came back and she put me on the steriods again for about 3 weeks. and i felt pretty good. now with the steriods helping this seems to lead to something is wrong with my auto immune system. so after she took me off the steriods she put me on another medicine called plaquinel. ive only been on this medicine for 30days and it seemed to help a bit. i felt good for about 3 months due to all of this and now about 3-4 days ago everything came back the lump, mucus all the vomiting. and now im in pain too cause im throwing up and still healing from back surgery. i dont know what to do anymore. i try and keep high spirits but it's hard. no1 seems that they can help. ive been to muliple doctors too to get 2nd and 3rd opinions and they are stumped as well. i have another appointment with a new gasternologists coming up in april, he specializes in the esophogus so maybe he may have some answers.

i was a smoker for about 7 years or so. i thought that it could of been the main cause of all of this but i quit smoking about 3-4 months ago and still no relief. i live in a newer house so shouldn't be any mold or what not. i can't seem to do anything at all. this is ruining my life. if any1 at all has any of these symptoms or has any advice please im begging u please help me. please. i need some type of answers/relief this has been going on pretty much every single day for two years where i throw up 1-15 times a day violently. i cant go on like this. it would be greatly appreciated if some1 any1 could help. thanks and sorry about spelling errors.

It sounds like cows milk protein intolerance sometimes a nasty virus or antibiotics can muck up the gut causing intolerances I would come off of all cows milk and soya for 3 months if you are intolerant to milk you will quickly develop an intolerance to soya so cut that too. I did this with my kids who also have reflux they are much better they were able to come off of their omoperazole then slowly introduce milk again check lables tho as milk is in loads of foods you wouldnt even think of you definately need to do this for the full 3 months to see a difference tho I couldnt believe the difference in my kids I never thought it would help us but it worked a treat also get yourself a decent multi vitamin this will help your digestion its worth a try good luck Smile

hi, i was reading about whats going on with you and have you thought about cyclic vomiting, my son is 18 yrs old and 28 days ago he started to vomit and has not stopped since we have tookmhim to several dr's and because of the headache afterwards and the vomiting in the morning and at night they have said this is cyclic vomiting nothing has stopped him from doing this yet we have tried everything. you can vomit for a very long time then stopped for a day or a month then start all over please ask your dr about this it might help. i hope you find help as im still looking for my son....

Choking on mucus
Tryin1, I know this is an old post, but I am experiencing the same as you except without the vomiting and when I started researching it, your thread came up. If you read this will you please tell me what has happened since? Have you gotten any relief?
