Question: Daily Vomitting


 djfelip - Mon Aug 30, 2004 11:06 am

Hello I am very concerned about my health, for the past 3 months I would guess almost everyday when i wake up i am extremelly nauseated, and about half the time I vomit. When I vomit it never has anything in it, just a yellow bile. I am also having trouble eating food, my stomach is now very sensitive it never was before. I do not get pain in the stomach i just usually feel nauseated until around noon, but that time is slowly lasting longer and longer making me not want to eat at all. Bowel movements are normal. I otherwise feel fine, I ocassionally drink.

User avatar Hello,
There are so many causes for nausea and vomiting. One of them happens to be psychological stress. Do you feel that might be the problem? Take a look at our vomiting/nausea.htm" class="postlink">nausea page for more info.

Best regards,

That is actually what I was thinking myself. I actually have a very stressful life, constantly over whelmed with my marketing company and I am also a poker player (semi pro live in las vegas) so I do have alot of stressors. Whats the best way to go about solving the situation because i really don't see my stress level going down.

There is also a history of high blood pressure in my family on both sides, my mother and father both do not have high blood pressure but it seems all other family members do. I have never been diagnosed with it.

User avatar Hello,
Psychologenic vomiting is only one of the possibities actually its a diagnosis of exclusion. The fact that you do indeed have a stressful life does make that possibility more probable. What I am trying to say is that we have to be careful before coming to that conclusion because of the many potentially dangerous causes for nausea and vomiting. Please review the article above.

That said, and assuming it is your stressful life, then you must learn to adapt. Some people benefit by knowing that its because of stress. That seems to make it seem less important and it just goes away. Some realize the magnitude of stress and its effects and start 'getting their act together'. For some it is not so easy and probably relates to the amount of stress they are dealing with in addition to personal variability. In such a case you may need to visit a psychiatrist and take anti-anxiety therapy.

Best regards,
