Question: Sudden vomiting, no nausea

 melissah - Sat Dec 18, 2004 12:51 am

For the last several weeks, I have been vomiting suddenly, seemingly without reason because I have no other symptoms, just vomiting with np nausea or anything else. I'm not pregnant, so any idea as to what would be the cause?

User avatar Hello:
Without more information it would be hard to understand why you are vomiting. Does it occur after a meal? Do you have any discomfort before vomiting? Do you eat rapidly or at a leisurely pace? Are you bowel movements regular? Have your eating habits changes recently? Have you seen a doctor about this?
Awaiting further information,

I guess (not sure) that it is a cause of a neurological disorder, most commonly the brain.

I repeat, i'm not sure. I'm still a med student. That's why. You'd better consult your doc.
