Throwing up during workouts

Common Questions and Answers about Throwing up during workouts


Hello all, I have noticed recently, during my weightlifting routines at the gym, that I will occasionally get a fluttering sensation in my heart that lasts about 10 to 15 seconds and occurs randomly while lifting weights or doing abdominal exercises, but oddly enough never during cardio workouts such as running or swimming (chance?). These "flutters" are quite worrisome, as I feel as if my heart may not recover it's consistent beat sometimes.
I noticed in highschool that at the end of every cross-country race I would throw up after (or during!) the final sprint. In fact, during the last mile I would feel the urge to vomit and I would have to slow down. After a few races like this, I started to skip breakfast completely the morning of a race. This did not help at all - I would just dry heave instead of vomit. This urge to vomit during strenuous exercise has been a seriously limiting factor for me.
When I returned to teaching about a month after my surgery, occasionally I would get what felt like spasms or almost hiccups deep in my gut, and it usually wouldn't stop without throwing up. It didn't always happen, which was really strange and frustrating. I thought maybe I had just returned to teaching too soon. Priorities changed my schedule anyway and I quit teaching for a few years.
I've been sick to my stomach (throwing up all night), have been suffering with rhumatoid arthritis for some freaking reason for the last several months and have been dealing with a pre-teen who I love dearly but is asserting her independence and tells me which way is up and that I don't know diddly about the world and she will not listen to what I'm trying to tell her and keep those lines of communication open - I'm probably not the best parent right now, but I'm really trying like hell to be
I am also on high BP midicine that keeps my heart rate low during workouts. I experience the same symptoms as you. Are you using the same monitor while taking the resting rate? I also have A-fib that I always attribute to the drugs the doctors prescribed. ** the heart monitors on the machines at the gym do not read my heart rate proberly and often can not read it at all. Also when they do read the heart rate it is very low --- 50-60 bpm.
I had an internet business on ebay before i lost my motivation and energy post detox and during detox...working my full time job as a nurse was all i could handle...i just got a shipment of items to put out there and get started going again...i dont make a ton of money at it..some but is mostly a hobby..gotta take my pics of everything and have already listed motivation is coming back and i feel good about that...also i have been to the gym every day this week...
I also highly recommend if you don't already, make sure you are well hydrated during your workouts. In any event, hopefully that was an isolated incidence but maybe consider trying to ease up just a bit on your workout if it seems to happen again. You may just be pushing your heart a bit too far. It is a muscle after all and can get strained just like any other muscle in your body. Well hopefully you hear back from your doctor soon. I know waiting can be torture.
a lot of women stop in the first trimester because of how sick we get. I did too because I couldnt stop throwing up. But once that wasnt as bad, I went back to working out. OBVIOUSLY, the further along you have to modify everything. But go at it! Working out if healthy and benefits you and your baby!! Almost 37 weeks and I workout everyday besides Sunday!! 30 minutes of cardio..45-60 minutes of walking and tons of leg and squat workouts!!
Yes, me as well. Some times I get a lot and others none. Not sure why. I don't think we will ever know.
I have to mention I’ve been diagnosed with Chiari 10 years ago, get wide range of symptoms (dizziness, nausea, throwing up, dull pain, severe pain, 9-10 on a scale of 10 pain; passed out only once but would more if I did not do my workouts to bring things back to normal). I did not have it surgically corrected. And therefore shared information may apply better to those with uncorrected Chiari. I am a certified personal trainer. BUT I cannot prescribe you this workout.
I'm speaking about someone I suspect has heart disease, I've noticed his heartrate is much lower than it ever was, (50's) and doesnt really jump up much during strenuous activity. Not a conditioned heart, btw. He does get lightheaded a bit easily, esp when standing up after sitting for awhile. So, could bradycardia eventually prevent the heart from reacting normally to increased exertion?
*now they only happen when I'm sitting down and relaxing, never during a workout (wore monitor during workouts) and it never effects my HR afterwords. It feels like my heart stops for a second (i feel strange in my sternum and base of my neck) and then I feel a HARD beat and then normal (with todays exception; "feeling", thud, maybe a second passes, "feeling", thud, then back to normal).
most doctors do not have a problem prescribing it if u call and say u have a tummy virus..
I finally was diagnosed after i got blood tests after complaining for what seemed like forever about how sore i was after soccer workouts and how i couldn't stay awake all day. I would take naps and wake up tired. i was groggy all the time. I finally got diagnosed and have been on 50 milligrams of Levothyroxine for a year. since then i have gotten gradually better with the soreness and grogginess. But I am constantly sick.
Obviously you'll want to consult with the cardiologist about this, but keeping up with exercise is the most important thing he can do. As we age the heart chambers get smaller and so we pump less blood out, this can be troublesome to someone with LVH, but exercise can prevent, or minimize just how much this happens. So it's important he continue to do so.
Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts.  an example of the Karvonen formula for a 23 year old person with a resting heart rate of 65 beats per minute (*to get your resting heart rate, take your pulse for one full minute when you first wake up in the morning or after you've resting for a while).
Even drinking constantly during intense exercise you cannot keep up with the rate your body loses water, so it seems to make sense. Will test this theory and see how it goes.
Day 33 Tramadol Cold Turkey Withdrawal; Immune System Breakdown ... I guess when the cat is away, the mice they will play. Last night I was alone in the house and steadily starting to believe I had a cold in the nose starting. Got rapidly worse. Searched for the Z-Pac, found the Z-Pac. Took the first dose. Woke up this morning thinking OMG I am so tired. But I didn't feel the "I feel like crawling in a hole and dying" thing. Progress!!
Drink water between meals and during workouts. None of the extreme methods and/or products will end the battle. It’s not magic.
Rog has even quit making the bed in the morns cause he knows I will end up right back in it (my luvs my bed!) If I fight a nap during the day and try to stay busy, then I crash and burn on the couch at 8:30-9pm, if I get my beauty sleep, I can usally hang until 11:00 or 12midnight. So yes, sleepyness is a battle and I usally just go w/it. Yea, and where is can-do?????
The recommendation is 10 glasses a day for adults and taking drinks every 15-20 minutes during workouts. Sports drinks and juices can replace lost nutrients during exercise. Some sports supplements are known to cause headaches. If you currently use supplements, try cycling out one thing at a time to see if something you are taking is causing the headaches.
I don't know if y'all can relate......I'm not having cravings for my doc per se; it's this feeling or reflex (mental) of this "searching" instinct of putting something in my mouth reflex. ......I guess like that involuntary motion of going to reach for your smoke. uuughghghghgghhhh, it drives me f*cking nuts!
I had a virus about 6 months ago and was throwing up something awful... after that i felt the same way you are. my doctor prescribed me ranitadine 300mg (zantac) and within a few days i felt better... i never had heartburn, and she said that i might not have it, but because when i threw up, it irritated my esophagus and made it swell causing the tight feeling in my upper chest and throat. it always got worse when i layed down and in the morning it seemed like i would have a mild sore throat.
I later noticed the smell of amonia when I would tear up. I have high amonia levels in my blood. The doctors have yet to give me a definitive answer since after treatment my liver enzymes are good, but I have high amonia content??? Don't know why, but I am going to take lactulose, which will clear out my digestive tract where it could be coming from....I'm still investigating and really disgusted with the lack of care or concern on the part of the doctors. Basically....
I start working out fine for about 8 weeks and then I get to a decent level of fitness and am increasing the intensity of the workouts. It has occured when I weightlift, so I gave that up and tried Karate, and it came back, gave that up and tried mountain biking (figuring it was the inside air, but sure enough it came back!) Specifically I come down with respiratory flu.
During the last deployment, my son had two major medical issues that ended up needing lots of follow-up care. I was so worried about getting him to and from dr. visits, as well as trying to take care of my other 2 kids, that I ended up forgetting to take care of myself. I ended up eating lots of junk food or not eating at all, hardly ever sleeping, and forgetting to take medications. As I said in my previous post, I ended up in the hospital with really serious issues.
Though I was emotionally low, I wouldn't say I was depressed, as I have suffered with bouts of depression on and off thoughout my life, beginning as a seasonal depression in my 20's and leading up to a 4 year long struggle in my 30's. I lost weight during this time in 2010 as well, had low energy levels and felt like my brain was under a sheet of fog. My joints and muscles hurt all the time. Blood work revealed elevated ferritin levels and GGT and ALT liver enzymes.
I would run also in my workouts. To my knowledge I don't believe I have ever hurt myself during my workouts nor hurt at all during them. I have had many visits to have my back adjusted, but no changes there. I have even changed my matress a few times as well. All top quality matresses, but no matter how hard or soft my bed may be, the pain is always returning in the morning. If I take motrin it's temporary relief but I don't want to be on that to long either.
Of course you are going to want to do the 1 year post-tx PCR, and you might even want to do a quick follow-up on this test right away, using another, different, highly sensitive PCR or TMA test, with 5 IU, or 2 IU as lower limits.
