I'm not quite sure what is wrong. For the past few years I will have "episodes" where I am vomiting from 12 hours up to 11 days. Various things have brought on these episodes (stress, food poisoning, alcohol), and I have gone to the E.R. several times and am always told they cannot find anything in my blood, urine and/or other tests they ran. When I went to the E.R. the last time, the doctor was concerned due to the fact that I was throwing up blood that he ran a CAT Scan, and again, nothing was discovered.
Last Thursday (10/2) I ate lunch and starting vomiting a few hours after that; this lasted until about 2:30 a.m. on Friday 10/3; woke up 10/3 feeling queasy; Saturday 10/4 woke up feeling fine, no queasiness, made dinner (Spaghetti w/meat and tomato sauce, broccoli and rolls) and about 45 mins. after that I started throwing up again. I am not sure how long this episode lasted due to the fact that I fell asleep; when I woke up at 6:30 am on Sunday 10/5 I got into bed; when I woke up again at 9:30 I felt queasy, and like I was going to start vomiting again. My stomach started severely cramping and was dry heaving. When I drank some water I felt a little better and went back to sleep until about 3:30 pm.
I am curious as to why this keeps happening; what foods are triggers? I had back surgery about 6 1/2 years ago and I have taken a good amount of medication due to the back pain; is it possible there is a problem with my stomach lining? Could it be an ulcer?
