gastric problem

I'VE BEEN HAVING SOME GASTRIC PROBLEMS RECENTLY. I'VE HAD NAUSEANESS WITH BOUTS OF VOMITING. AT FIRST I WASN'T TOO CONCERNED BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON AND OFF FOR SEVERAL YEARS. MY CONCERN IS THAT TWICE IN ONE NIGHT I'VE HAD GREENISH SUBSTANCE COMING UP AND YET I HAVEN'T HAD ANYTHING GREEN TO EAT. IT LOOKS LIKE SPINACH YET I'VE NOT HAD ANYTHING LIKE IT TO EAT. WHAT COULD THIS BE FROM. ANY ADVICE WOULD BE HELPFUL. AS I HAD STATED EARLIER  I'VE HAD PROBLEMS BEFORE WITH MY STOMACH BUT NOTHING LIKE THIS. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP. I'M GOING TO CALL MY GASTROLOGIST NEXT WEEK AS HE WILL NOT BE BACK UNTIL MONDAY MORNING AND TRY TO GET AN APPOINTMENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I JUST WANTED TO SEE IF ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM OR KNOWS WHAT IT COULD BE AND WHAT COULD BE CAUSING IT.

Not a dr but maybe you should be seen b4 next week.
I have experienced green bile in vomit so it could be your gallbladder. That usually involves pain especially if you press between ribs at the bottom. Does your dr belong to a group? If you tell them your symptoms maybe another doc can see you.

I HAVE THE GREEN SPINACH LIKE SUBSTANCE BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT COULD BE. I KNOW IT CAN'T BE MY GALL BLADDER AS I'VE HAD MINE REMOVED.

I was so focused on the green substance that I missed the part about frequent vomiting for years. I had frequent vomiting for 3 years. Had surgery to repair hiatal hernia and a fundoplication but was still having dry heaves. Was finally treated for small bowel bacterial overgrowth-2rounds of expensive antibiotics but finally felt much better. I still have occasional nausea but never like before. Hope you get some help soon.
