A little history, Back in feb I started vomiting. At the time it would be in the morning only. Thought it was stress and nothing more well as time went on about 2 weeks it became worse and worse to the point that for the past about 5 weeks I keep nothing down. I have had gastroscopy, abdominal ultra sound blood work and urine tests. All came back normal. My stomach showed signs of irritation but thats all no bacteria or any issues.

I have read that there is a center in the brain that controls vomiting, could this be something I should look into? My Dr thinks it has nothing to do with it.

Here is what happens when I eat. I get a mild sensation in my stomach like a tightening then some gas and in about 10 mins of eating I regergatate what I ate. Not vomit as it is not digested. Any one else have this happen to them?

Welcome to ehealth! (I'm sorry it had to be under these conditions)

Have you seen a gastrointerologist about this or are you seeing a general physician?

Thank you for your response. I have been to both my GP and he sent me to a gastrointerologist. She is the one that did the gastroscopy.

This has become horrable to live with. I have very little energy. I have tried to drink things like Ensure and Boost and after about 3 drinks of it I am running to the bathroom. It does not seem to matter what I eat it just comes right back up, very frustrating. I can no longer work as I could not preform my duties without mistakes becasue I can not focus. I have lost about 35lbs Thank god I had the weight to lose. I went from a size 20 to a 12 now and not working has slowed it down but still losing and not happy about it.

The only thing I can do is sip water and gatoraide during the day, but i can't drink it like a normal person becasue it will come back up. The gatoraide was a nurses idea and it worked not near as dehydrated as I was.

I tried to find another Dr but I live in Alberta and very hard to get in to see a Dr. I have no idea what to do next.

There is a medication called phenergan. It helps to control nausea/vomitting. You may want to speak to your doctor about this as a fix to your symptoms until you can find the real problem.

I am unfamiliar with how the medical system works there. Do you need a referal or can you see whomever you want?

I would suggest seeing a neurologist. It's definitely worth shot! You may want to also see and internest.

I was not on phenergan but one of it's cousins and no help. I have had gravol shots was on Pantoloc. Nothing has stopped this from happening. I am still taking the meds they gave me but I am tired of the wait and see attitude from the Dr's All I want is to eat again. I do eat as little as possable in hope it stays down but still it comes up.

Our health system here is not a bad system but right now Alberta is in a huge boom and there are not enough Dr's for all the people every place is short staffed but yes to see a specialist of any kind you have to be reffered by your family Dr. If your dr does not think you need a test they don't send you. Not many Dr's around even taking new patients at this time. So I am stuck with this.
