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.
She is now being doubled over w/pain in the lower abdomen, severe nausia, vomiting constantly, and bloody diarrhea. Over the past six weeks, she has been in the hospital 4 times - had 3 colonoscopy, upper GI, blood work, stomach biopsy, colon biospy. They determined that she has ischemic cholitis. The last colonoscopy said this condition was "healing nicely" but less than 1 week later she is back in the hospital - and worse than ever! She is weak, vomiting, diarrhea etc.

If an obstruction goes on for a while, the pain may decrease because the bowel stops contracting. Continuous severe pain in one area can mean that the blockage has cut off the bowel's blood supply. This is called a bowel strangulation and requires emergency treatment. Vomiting. Small-bowel obstructions usually cause vomiting. The vomit is usually green if the obstruction is in the upper small intestine and brown if it is in the lower small intestine. Elimination problems.
For this last month I have had severe stomach cramps with diarrhea and nausea right after I eat supper. I thought the first time was food poisening because I felt like that but now it has happened again and again. I was in so much pain I thought I would pass out, my husband had to hold me up I was so week. I have not been sick or I didn't eat anything out of the ordinary. I had a physical and she said I was in good health but I don't think they did the right test.
I have had severl episodes where I have severe stomach cramping, chronic diarrhea (brown water), vomiting and this past time almost passing out. I'm concerned this may be more than just IBS. The triggers: lettuce and tomatos. Any ideas or suggestion because this last episode scared me and my family. Blood pressure went very low as well.
For the past couple of years she has been having severe naseua, vomiting, and back pain. The episodes have been much more frequent lately. She was hospitalized on and off for six weeks. Her doctors are unable to help her. During these episodes IV therapy is the only thing that can help. She is down to skin and bones because most days she cannot eat or hold food down.
I am a 40 yr old female in relative good health. I have been having severe stomach pain around my belly button area. It's very tender to the touch. The pain is constant, but there are episodes of severe pain that causes me to double over and can harldy breathe. I also have "gas pains" that roam around my stomach, go to my back, cause my heart to flutter, and even goes into the pelvic region. It feels like a nervous stomach that someone is pouring acid onto.
Now im having worse symtoms and i cant figure out what it could be they dont fit together my symptoms are daily bloating, i was diagnosed lactosr intolerant so i stay away from that food, but my jeans fit well in the moring and as soon as i get out my stomach swells out like im pregnant and its awful pain. I know its gas because as soon as i get to a place i can release its quite evident but i have no idea what is causing this.
I am a 65 yr old female and have been having severe attacks of excruciating lower abdomen pain that starts like gas pain, then gets harder (just like labor pains)then eventually to diarrhea & vomiting to dry heaving up a vile tasting dark green liquid (after all food substance is gone). I have had 6 of these attacks starting in late October, Jan, March, 2 in April and 1 this week each ending up in the E.R. with demoral & phenegran after x-rays & CT Scans.
I have also been vomiting and have had some diarrhea. I have not been able to keep down any food (including popsicles) or water. I have had to get IV fluids multiple times since this started. I have never had anything like this happen before. The pain also feels like it sometimes radiates to my shoulder and back. I have also had high fevers on and off since this started (104.6 being the highest.) I have had a ct scan, an ultrasound, an X-ray, a hida scan, and an endoscopy done.
The pain remained and got worse. I began getting dizzy spells, constipation, diarrhea, sweats, vomiting, nausea, headaches, lower back pain, etc. It comes in cycles that last from 2 weeks to anywhere around 6 weeks. I never have constipation and diarrhea together during the constipation "episodes" and visa versa. It isonly 1 or the other.
I've also passed out on one occasion which I think was from vomiting so much and being dehydrated. The pain is located on my right side below my rib cage and is sharp. It also feels like it radiates up my arm on my shoulder and back. The doctors have done an endoscopy showing only mild stomach irritation (I'm assuming from the non stop vomiting), a ct scan, an ultrasound, an X-ray, and a hida scan which all came back normal.
30 am in severe pain. The pain was a dull AND sharp AND severe pain on the left side of my chest near the bottom of my ribs (like the last two? not really my heart area, further left). Coupled with this pain was a burning sensation that felt like it was in my muscles (not my organs) on the upper half of my body and down into my arms. It was over in roughly 3 hours time, and I dismissed it, as I do most my ailments. In this occurrence I did not attempt to get out of bed.
I'm assuming the pain is in the stomach because you mentioned diarrhea and vomiting. A good rule of thumb is if the pain is, on a scale of 1-10, more than a 6 or he has a high fever he needs to get to the ER asap because it could be something serious.
excessive wind throughout the day (every 10 minutes), I cant eat without vomiting it all up and more, every time I drink or eat i have SEVERE diarrhea, it makes me worn out and tired, and my whole body is just hot and i feel cold and shakey. This happens every single day without fail. I've also had a little bit of Irritable bowel syndrome but nothing that wasnt manageable, however this is unmanageable and seriously affecting my life, i cant do nothing without sweating and needing the toilet.
after the detox I started to introduce the foods I had given up on for those 30 days, after a week I felt myself slipping back to how I was and the raw stomach pain, nausea and tiredness returned, I have now modified my diet in order to avoid the foods that where poisoning my system, and although not perfect as with the detox I am doing better.
I have not experienced vomiting until just recently. The nausea cramping and pain is constant. I have diarrhea 4-5 times a week and the other times I'm constipated. I don't feel any pains of constipation, I jut have a bowel movement every 3 days or so. I have also noticed pretty severe fatigue, muscle weakness and joint pain. I have been taking Imodium for the diarrhea, and Emetrol and nauzene tablets for the nausea. Last week I woke up in so much abdominal pain that I couldn't move.
For past 7 wks, I have had diffuse abd. pain that has increased in severity, along w/nausea and vomiting daily. The pain started in lower abd. in & around belly button. No diarrhea, severe constipation (going maybe 2x's wk even after taking Sorbitol 2 TBSP daily.(I've had some constipation all my life). Saw my Dr. no hernia, watch, increase fiber. Pain travels all over.
I also have both constipation and diarrhea and vomiting. The strange thing is I feel better after I pass stools, even though I don't feel stuffed up. There is no blood in my stools. And I have a bloated feeling after I eat, so I have been eating less. Sometimes I have stomach pain when I eat solid food, like a muffin or sandwich. I tried pepto bismol, it gave me diarrhea and I felt better for an hour but comes back right after so I stopped taking it. What could be wrong with me?
Mine starts off usually early morning hours as egg burps, which induce vomiting every 5-10minutes with severe stomach pain then the diarrhea starts and lasts for hours after the vomiting subsides (usually between4-10hrs after first burp). My stomach will cramp up and burn during the beginning, then I know I'm on the down hill of it when I go longer and longer between vomiting and the pains subside.
A lot of times, medication can give bad side effects, and perhaps that is why your diarrhea is worse. The cramping might be worse due to scarring and or the hormones. And if they laser burned your endometriosis rather than excising (cutting it out) it, that can cause worse scarring, because your body treats burned tissue as foreign (I've read). I was laser burned the first time because it was an emergency surgery where they discovered the endometriosis and I knew nothing about it.
For the last month or 2, I have been experiencing terrible problems with my stomach. Mainly stomach spasms and nausea. Every since last night I have been having diarrhea. Now I am having the worst stomach cramps on the left side of my abdominal. I can hardly move. Every minute that goes by I feel more and more nauseous. I cant take this anymore. I just want to feel better. After every meal, I feel very full and sick to my stomach.
