Common Questions and Answers about Causes of throwing up stomach acid


Avatar f tn Never lay him on his back when he is feeding or right after you are finished with feeding because the acid from the stomach goes into the esophagus and causes pain, plus vomiting. Wait about ½ hour after feeding before laying him down. Raise the head of his crib to a 45-degree angle too so he is not flat on his back. Hoped this helped you.

Avatar m tn I have a fear of throwing up too. (well sorta). Last year I threw up for the first time in my 28 years of life lol. I realized it wasn't so bad to throw up. Feeling sick still makes me nervous though.
Avatar n tn It's extremely hard for me to go out to dinner at restaurants from the fear of throwing up. I don't go to clubs or bars because i am terrified of the thought of throwing up. This has taken over my life. It's the most terrible feeling. I honestly would rather have a booger up my nose and have someone tell me then to have to deal with this. It's nice to know there are others out there besides me. I've tried Lexapro...doean't work...

Avatar f tn My sister had piloric stenosis (sp might be wrong) as a baby horribly until she was over a year, and my son had it horribly until he was about nine months old. It causes a horrible amount of projectile vomiting and regular vomiting. It may be that that your baby has. My son's pediatrician told me that they basically have to grow out of it, which he seems to have.
Avatar f tn Blocked intestine, gallbladder diseases, heart attack, brain injury, gluten intolerance, gastroparesis (delayed gastric emptying due to partial paralysis of the stomach), brain tumor, stomach flu, ulcers, meningitis, appendicitis, migraine headaches, dehydration are some of the causes of vomiting. Food Content: Certain ingredients or certain foods which do not suit your body, are not accepted by the digestive system.
725248 tn?1316165845 Sometimes small dogs vomit in the morning due to bilious vomiting syndrome, a disorder of stomach hyperacidity. Feeding a small meal before bedtime can sometimes help, as can oral medications to reduce stomach acid production, such as Pepcid. You can call your veterinarian to obtain the appropriate dose of Pepcid for your dog's size, and purchase it over the counter.
Avatar f tn During pregnancy it's generally caused by slower digestion, and baby pushing your organs up which causes the stomach acid to rise into your throat. Eating too soon before bed (you shouldn't eat 4 hours before bed), spicy foods, exercising too soon after eating or lying down can all cause it as well. Eat small snacks frequently to keep the acid from building too much, and maintain a good diet.
Avatar n tn I wanted to let you know that I am experiencing the same thing today EXCEPT there is no throwing up - just severe diarrhea and stomach/abdominal cramps (along with those nasty sulfur burps). What I have may possibly be giardiasis, a single cell parasite that lives in feces. Contaminated drinking water is the major cause of this. What I wanted to say was, 23 years ago I lived in Arizona and had the same problem.
973741 tn?1342346373 Some minerals also require acid to break them down, but others are the opposite. But acid doesn't usually cause throwing up, it causes heartburn and reflux if it causes anything, and in young people, well, they can usually eat pretty much anything and not be bothered by it because of their quick metabolism. Because your son is so active I'm assuming he's metabolizing his food and burning it off pretty quickly and very regularly.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem, I have a small hiatal hernia which causes me really bad acid reflux, and I puke up acid quite often. I've figured out how to control "the expelling" of the acid so that it isn't as much of a painfully terrible experience. One thing I just started trying which seems to work pretty decently is drinking a lot of water to dilute the acid.
170935 tn?1225374676 —Indigestion, I believe, is responsible for more cases of functional heart-disease than all other causes combined. The distention of the stomach by gas, presses against the sensitive nerves of the heart, which gives rise, not only to palpitation, but irregular heart action as well.<<<<< Nervous Lesions.—Emotional excitement, especially the distressing emotions, such as fear, grief, and despondency, are causes; It also occurs in neurasthenia.
Avatar f tn With GERD, this muscle does not work properly, and causes food and stomach acid to leak back up the esophagus. It could also be Gastroenteritis as Tuck has suggested. There are also about 2000 other reasons why you are vomiting stomach acid. Please have it checked out. Make that appt. with your Doctor. Better safe than sorry. Please take care and good luck.
Avatar m tn My 7 year old Lab is undergoing Twisted Intestine surgery right now and is having part of his bowel removed along with his small intestines. My question is "what causes this"? I feed him only the best dog food. Purina One which they changed recently and I keep saying he started getting sick after he started eating it. Please help me to understand.
604197 tn?1292308636 I just wanted to comment and I am not a doctor just a Mom. My son suffered a TBI and one of first questions when he woke up was did he feel like he could smell foods etc. These senses (smell and taste) in his case seemed to be heighten - he said he could smell things that we couldn't or when he tasted something it was very salty to him.
Avatar f tn I have been on 100mg of Topamax since the end of April. I immediately experienced the loss of appetite. I seaked the advice of a naturopath to use it to my advantage because I had about 80 pounds to lose. I see him every Friday and since then, I have lost 43 pounds...:-) It has not been difficult. It seems like he weight is coming off on its own now. I don't crave anything. I'm hoping to reach my goal by January.
Avatar m tn We conclude that large doses of lipoic acid displace sulfhydryls from binding sites, resulting in depletion of serum cysteine, but also pose a methylation burden with severe depletion of liver S-adenosylmethionine and massive release of S-adenosylhomocysteine.

Avatar f tn Since I have been through all of this I have found out, my allergies flare up my acic reflux causing my severe coughing throwing acid into my lungs which causes the bronchitis. I take allergy medication daily and still have the ear/sinus problems and "have nothing wrong with me". I often wonder if the acid reflex is causing some of my problems. I have spent literally thousands of dollars trying to figure out why I am having so many issues and they have never found a cause.
1222076 tn?1423031349 Most people think that my heart and stomach symptoms could be linked but my doctor today said that my acid shouldnt be causing problems with my heart. She thinks my heart is fine but I still need to check in with the Cardio specalist because they did a chest ultrasound a few months ago and I never heard back. It just don't make much sense to me. I'm still young I don't get why I cant just feel normal.
Avatar n tn My 14 year old daughter is experiencing a lot of stomach pain and is missing a lot of school because of it. We have been to the Dr. several times and they don't seem to know what is wrong. The pains come from know where at times and are stronger after she eats any type of foods. can someone give me any suggestions? A few years ago I was diagnosed with Crohnes Disease is it possible that she could develop it? Thank You for any suggestions or answers.
Avatar n tn My daughter at about 8 months started retching and sometimes throwing up when she was "full" although she does not eat very well. If she would see food or her bottle and she was full she would gag and sometimes throw up. Her Dr. put her on Prevacid a couple of months ago and we uped her dose 2 weeks ago to 15 mg. twice a day. It hasnt been helping! She is barely eating now. Is this an aversion to food; a behavioral thing or a stomach issue? She has a consult with the GI Drs.
Avatar n tn No help? Septemeber of last year she started throwing up after meals and having severe stomach distention. In Feb. of this year, severe upper stomach pain. right between the breast bone. She is having to take narcotic pain killers just to ease the pain (it never takes it away). We have had all the blood work and normal test. CT scan, Hida, capsule endoscopy, MRI, gastrogram. Nothing is showing up. We have been at a research hospital since March.
Avatar m tn My bilirubin was 1.5 and my stomachs been acting up. I was taking antibiotics and after all my stomach pains began. I also ready its harmless if alt is normal and other liver function test are normal for me, only mild bilirubin. Now I was prescribed Pepcid for stomach acid and I'm scared to take them because I don't want my numbers to rise.
Avatar n tn I am constantly getting some kind of reflux coming up from my stomach (not sure if it is all acid) all the time, when I eat, when I don't eat, and even when my stomach is empty. It comes all the way up to my throat and causes a burning in my ears and nose. It doesn't always cause heartburn, but sometimes I feel heartburn.
