Severe heartburn and vomiting

Common Questions and Answers about Severe heartburn and vomiting

heartburn

Since my two trips to the ER, I have had some extreme pain in my chest and stomache area, and I believe it to be related to some kind of acid reflux, or heartburn, or something like that. The pain is pretty severe at times, and I am afraid to eat. I sometimes stay up for hours with very severe pains that keep me awake. I take Maalox, Mylanta, tums, tylenol, and advil pm to aleviate the pain, but nothing seems to help. I was prescribed Protonix yesterday by the doctor at the clinic.
A couple months ago I thought I was just having severe heartburn, but it turned out to be 2 duodenal ulcers and it was a good thing I went to the er because they admitted me for 5 days. Better to be safe than sorry. Of course, it could be a heart attack as well, but you're pretty young for that. Tagamet or Cimetidine are 2 over the counter meds that work well for heartburn. Only you know how much pain your in. If you can't stand it, get to the ER.
16 months ago I went to the emergency room due to severe abdominal pain and vomiting, and several days ago, out of the blue and to my horror, it happened again. Both times it was sudden, beginning with something like heartburn and gas pains, then very rapidly becoming so extreme, extending from my chest to my pelvic region, that I could barely withstand the pain...truly just short of making me lose consciousness.
while i was in fact vomiting, i got a sudden and severe headache in the back of my head, enough to back me seriously sit back. my first thought was of course "oh know, i've popped something" i don't want to be over reacting over something brought on only by the vomiting, but then again i can't be too sure. there seems to be a small pressure still in my head where the headache started. if anyone haves any ideas, i would greatly appriciate it. thank you.
I either experience severe multiple burpings and heartburn OR hard, wide multiple yawnings, when I enter a social situation. It is never mixed but each seems to occur regularly in the same situations i.e.-- burping occurs when I enter one place, yawning occurs when I enter another place.
I would most certainly be in severe pain and vomiting 24/7. I have tried vegan food for awhile, and it doesn't seem to have any different effect in favor or against. Thanks for trying though.
Took zantac after vomiting on day #11 and #12 and noticed improvement. No heartburn with this but states when he vomits it's full of acid. Is it possible he's developed a severe case of acid refulx? Any suggestions as our local ER does not seem to be able to figure out what is wrong with him.
Around 15 mins after eating, I would get severe chest pains, and I mean severe. I would vomit and I would be as white as a sheet. This would last about 20 minutes and then settle.
I used to have severe heartburn. In 2008 I had lapband surgery and have not had heartburn since until a month ago. Twice in the last month, I have woken in the middle of the night with severe burning in my throat. As soon as I get out of bed, the burning creates nausea and I vomit. The only thing that comes up is foam or stoamch acid. What could this be????
my grandaughter is 5 1/2 mo. and has a severe problem with spitting up/vomiting her bottle, she also has hiccups off and on daily, especially if laid down to change diaper, etc. She has now started a cough that is causing me concern becuase it seems to be associated with the vomiting somehow. When my daughter was pregnant the baby had the hiccups in the womb every day during the last 3 or 4 months of pregnancy also.
I had been sick with what seemed like a stomach virus or food poisoning (nausea, violent vomiting, and diarrhea) when the pains in my abdomen began. The pains were very sharp and would come and go. When I was admitted to the hospital, I was quite jaundiced. Blood tests showed very high bilirubin and white blood cell count. An abdominal ultrasound showed no gallstones. A follow-up HIDA scan however, showed very low functioning of my gallbladder.
Are you having bad heartburn the only time that has happened to me if if I have heartburn but I would mention this to your midwife doc etc because so far your lucky having woken up n not chocking on it
It doesn't smell like vomit, no acid smell, I don't understand how the heartburn can be so bad that vomiting doesn't help. I don't understand how I can vomit mucous and water and the food stays put?? I"m seeing a gastroenterologist in another week to have an upper gi and a colonoscopy, they're afraid it's Celiac and so am I!
I ended up in the hospital because I had diarrhea and vomiting.....lasting for about 8 days. I was extremely nauseated for a long time, and could not eat, or keep anything down. The nausea lasted for about 2 weeks total. I lost 30 pounds in a little over a month. My bloodwork was normal, neutrophils were elevated, but everything else okay. I had an ultrasound, CT Scan, colonoscopy, and the scope down my throat (sp?). CT, ultrasound, and colonoscopy showed nothing.
is it possible to somehow strain or injure the muscles of the esophagus while vomiting? And if so, what are the manifestations, and most importantly WHEN can I expect relief? I've been seeing an ENT, and we started with Nexium to alleviate any heartburn I may be having.It didn't really do much, so we did an esophogram. The esophogram ruled out reflux and ruled out hiatel hernia. Next up is a CT of the neck to rule out any mass.
I feel on the verge of passing out the coughing vomiting are so bad. Often when I and vomiting huge bursts of air come out, like stuck burps. The nausea usually subsides by afternoon, but the not eating lingers. I almost always feel like I need to go to the bathroom, usually just gas. I am just feeling so bad and discouraged. The doc prescribed two different meds for nausea but all they did was make me groggy, not real relief. Is anyone else going through this?
By Monday, I started vomiting, and have not let up since. Yesterday was the funeral, so I went to my Doc (actually couldn't see my own Dr-had to see another) in the am to get an opinion as to what was going on, and to help me get through the day. My bp was 90/50, and I appeared dehydrated to him. He gave me a prescription for something I can't pronounce supposed to help with the nausea, and he said he was giving me enough for 3 days.
I have had Crohn's disease for about 3 years and I am having problems with vomiting and I don't know what to do!! If you have any advice please help, I feel lost! I have some problems swallowing and I frequently feel like there is something in my throat ready to come up. I was vomiting almost every night for about two weeks I then felt a little better and it only occurred every couple of days. Well right now I can't hold anything down. I'm afraid to eat, but I am hungry.
In October 2010, I began to have daily symptoms of upper mid stomach discomfort/burnin pain just below my sternum, sometime burning sensation in the throat, and some nausea but no vomiting. This went on for about three months. I visited the ER twice which an ultrasound and CT scan were performed (both normal except two small gallbladder polyps). In January 2011, I visited a GI doctor who performed a upper endoscopy with biopsy (normal).

I am in a stressful job and the latest set of symptoms seem to have been triggered from a period in New York where (having just split up from my boyfriend) I was having very little sleep, was drinking and smoking to xs, and was also vomiting. I am now resting and trying to eat healthy (but calorific) foods to keep my weight up and give me some energy, but I am so scared of the damage that may have been done.
If it gets worse during deep intake of breath, radiates to back or below the right shoulder blade, is worse after eating or drinking fatty foods or fluids, has fever, nausea and vomiting, heartburn, chills and shaking and chest pain under the breastbone, have doc get blood chem 20, and also check for levels for Lipase, Amylase, and have a urine test.
30. Is it too early to be vomiting, or is it around the right time, My only other EPS is tired and fatigue, p.s. help me.
But I feel hot, yet have chills and shakes. Last night was the 1st time I had the severe vomiting episode. It started with a burp in which food I had each about 9 - 10 hours earlier came up my throat! I was grossed out. Then about 30 minutes later puking started and it was a dark brown. It burned my throat like someone poured acid inside of my, shook me up and the I'd pop. Never has vomiting made my thoat feel so raw.
Never have naseau, vomiting, or diarrhea. The pain starts urq abdomen and center and goes up into my jaw on right side (feels like teeth are hurting). Have this pain an average of 5 times per month. On scale of 1 to 10 its a 12! Lasts for several hours. I have to keep walking when its hurting. Take Levbid, Prilosec. Levbid helps after a hour or two. I hate the side effects (blurred vision is the worst) so I only take it as a last resort.
I am Pregnant with my second child. I never had morning sickness with the first and with this one, still not too morning sickness but for the third time now I have had vomiting and diarrhea at the same time happening. I thought it had to do with what I was eating, because the first 2 times it happened after having fast food (which I rarely do anyways), but this last time it happened shortly after eating eggs, toast and fruit.
I had and endoscopy/colonoscopy recently too with similar diagnosis and problems after the proceedure. I went in because I was having chronic diahhrea and stomach pain with nausia and vomiting. I was diagnosed with gastritis and mild esophageal reflux. After the endoscopy the next day I had trouble swallowing about chest level.
I'm 6weeks and for past three days cant eat and can barely drink more than a few sips. I keep gagging and vomiting spit. Been up all night long miserable. Doc said if my urine don't get lighter go to ER for fluids and meds. I'm hesitant to take meds as I'm already high risk don't want to worry about side effects too but I'm sooo miserable just laying around. I want to clean and go outside but I cant focus on anything. Anyone else?
Used to feeling sick and dizzy but this morning room was spinning and I was vomiting . Eased off as long as I stayed upright. Ready to have this operation if this is what's to come.
