It happened as described a few months ago. I think I have stomach flu. I've been extremely sick to my stomach since yesterday when I got up feeling feverish, queasy and shaking. I drank a glass of water and immediately started violently vomiting. I threw up everything I had for supper the night before, then had dry-heaving. I will start to feel a little better and try to eat or drink a little something light, then the nausea comes back and everything comes back up. I threw up again just now.

Well, I do eat a little grease sometimes. But I throw up every month morning to the next morning but the doctor said it's GERD that causes my nausea and vomiting. I don't know what it is, they say acid reflux, but that's not acid reflux. I don't eat any spicy food, I eat light meals and no soda. I take medicines that don't help. I have been through a lot with this disease. I have been put to sleep to check my stomach 3 times, 1st it was ulcers 2 times, and then it was nothing the 3rd time, it was stomach infection.

I went to hospital for pneumonia. They pumped me full of antibiotics and cough medicines. Since the third day of my hospital stay, I have felt extremely nauseous. I've been home three days now, and still cannot keep hardly any food down. I've lost 15 pounds and counting. I can't afford to lose much more. Even with the medicines out of my system, the nausea remains. I'm not sure what to do now.

I'm not sure what happened. I woke up in the middle of the night feeling cold with a lot of salivating and somewhat upset stomach. I tried to get back to sleep, but moved the trash can by the bed. An hour later I brought my whole supper up, vomiting food for about 10 minutes, then large amounts of clear brown, then water.my stomach was still sick and I began throwing up green bile.

My nausea and vomiting were caused due to the onset of acute pancreatitis, which became chronic.

My nausea and vomiting was when I booked into a hotel. For my first meal I had rice with meat. That night I started to feel sick, but it was another 18 hours before I was very sick. I passed out for a few minutes. Three other people were also sick but the hotel said it was not their food. I was told I would have to go to the doctor who will report it if he thinks it's the food. I took a stool sample to the doctor, which I noticed had a lot of blood in it.
