Unexplained Vomiting And Diarrhea

i have had this problem for the last 9 months. It usually happens on a wednesday or thursday, between 1-4am and lasts about 2-5 hours. I wake up profusely sweating and have a migraine headache. My body will start to shake uncontrollably, especially my arms and legs and start to have diarrhea and violent vomiting. I have seen my dr and she doesnt think it is a big deal since its so sporadic. she gave me tramadol and anti-nausea drug but since i dont know when it is going to happen its a total crap shoot to get that right. I cant take it when my symptoms start because i cant keep it down. has this ever happened to anyone? I am at the end of my rope. Sad

It sounds like it might be related to something you are doing if it usually happens on a Wednesday or a Thursday between 1-4am.

I have the same problem, only mine occurs on Tuesdays. I am going to a gastric dr. next Friday. Hopefully he can pinpoint the problem.

sporadic vomiting
I have this problem like clockwork every Tuesday nite. It seems it's getting worse. this last time it was accompanied by heavy duty diarrhea and a fever of 101.1. If any body has the same problem that's been diagnosed, I would sure like to hear about it.

I've had this happen to me on three separate occasions over the last year--all different days, times of day, and no link whatsoever in foods. It lasts almost exactly ONE hour each time. Any ideas?
