Common Questions and Answers about Vomiting up stomach acid


1285120 tn?1273755207 I take kapidex, Bentyl , Alkaline Drops( acid neutrilizer) and Carafate. Recently I have been throwing up stomach acid , have a foul taste in my mouth with nausea and coughing up stomach acid too. My Pulmonologist said that the acid reflux can back up into your lungs if you are overweight with a Hiatal Hernia which I am. My Gastroenterologist does not think at this time that I require surgery to fix my Hernia.
Avatar m tn and when it closes and it keeps the food in the stomach so undigested food and acid does not go back up. Undigested food coming up the esophagus is exposing the esophagus to stomach acid and it can become damaged from the acid. May be the muscle weakened or could be something else. You need to go to your doctor to be examined, find out why it is happening, and be treated.
Avatar f tn If you vomit, some of the stomach acid is within the vomit. If you vomit again, more of the stomach acid is used up. Since your stomach acid pumps will probably be turned on, it is hard to determine how much acid is consumed in the vomit. When I had a perforated ulcer, I was constantly fed a bland diet. My ulcer healed and I have photographs of my stomach-ulcer scar to prove it. Thank goodness for technology, because in 1964 milk and cream were the diets prescribed for ulcer treatments.
Avatar f tn I am 12 weeks and i get the same thing..it really ***** but i find that if i drink as much water as i can before i throw up even if it means taking as big if drink as i can in between dry heaves it makes it so the tummy acid doesnt taste as bad if any comes up at all cause if u drink enough it usually is just water coming up.
Avatar f tn since it is the morning I wake up hungry, meaning no food in my stomach, so i throw up stomach acid for hours. I;m not sure if its rly stomach acid, its yellow/light/dark, and last time it was blood as well. I am feeling better know but I will really like to know what is going on.
Avatar n tn A few seconds later I woke up with a loud ringing in my ears light headedness my ears felt wet inside, I turned very pale. I had trouble focusing the rest of the night and my stomach felt unusual. This morining I woke up very nauseus and vomited.
Avatar n tn The vet told me to give him a little bit of petobismol 15 minutes before he eats his food and to split it in half each time i feed him. The peptobismol made is vomiting worse. They said that it might be acid because he eats his food really fast. We are still feeding him in small portions and when he eats in the morning he is fine he doesn't vomit all day while we are gone but he eats again at 5 in the evening and about 5 hours later he vomits some of it back up.
Avatar n tn My son has acid reflux and we took him off his meds at docs order. He throws up on occasion. Does he drink alot at night or during the day.
Avatar f tn If it burned coming up could have been stomach acid. Sometimes if blood and acid mix it can turn black. I would maybe bring it up to your doc at your next appointment. It could also just be one of those one time things that have no explanation. I wouldn't worry to much.
494192 tn?1209582569 What is this, could it be this so called acid reflux, what is causing this so much large volume of acid liquid in my stomach, have started to lose some weight and I am thinking that this could be being caused by this large amount of acid in my stomach so that the food is getting disolved by the acid so quickly that it is not there to be used by my body. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Heartburn is expected to a certain degree as the pregnancy hormones relax muscles including the sphincter between the stomach and esophagus. The sphincter acts to keep acid from flowing up back into the esophagus. But when you are getting no relief OTC or prescription meds may be warranted. I understand the pain it can cause, I've been dealing with it since a child and had an especially painful relapse 3 months ago due to strep throat and then pregnancy hormones kickstarting it again.
Avatar f tn I was just concerned because my first son had pyloric stenosis and needed surgery for the incessant vomiting as he had a blockage in his stomach but Brayden seems to be gaining weight but I do think we overfeed him as well.
Avatar f tn My stomach is sensitive to acid. When I was drinking froaen orange juice with breakfast About 1 1/2 hours later everything would come up. The last thing I would taste would be that orange juice. I have to either buy oranges and squeeze them myself or buy low acid orange juice. I cannot drink frozen because it is boiled to pasurize it (and that kills all the enzymes) and makes it very acidic. I have been fine since I gave up the frozen orange juice.
1435895 tn?1304294841 But now makes 3 times that I have started vomiting and not been able to stop. To the point of vomiting up stomach acid. One of those times I popped a blood vessel (capillary I guess) and was vomitng blood. This week has been 2 different times already. Of course we all know what wretching does to your head. The more you vomit the worse your head hurts. It just starts a vicious cycle of pain. Wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this.
Avatar f tn I am tapering off of oxycontin...I have heard that vomiting is a possible side effect...picked up the info from lurking on various boards etc. I am no expert. Good luck to you!
Avatar m tn I am having a lot of acid reflux and in the mornings or so I am puking up stomach bile. . And I was wondering if the red I'm seeing in my bile / acid is blood. I have been eating pizza lately. But I don't throw up pizza. Just acid or bile and it is yellow and some red. If the red is just sauce ok, but why puking stomach acid and or bile.
Avatar n tn If my stomach is acting up the only relief I get is by vomiting up the acid. It does not occur during the day time or night either. This only occurs in the early morning right when I wake up. Can you tell me what is going on??
Avatar n tn I would say you don't have IBS (that is mostly intestines not stomach) or acid reflux (that would be happening all the time). I would say that because it is happening only three to four times a year it is just related to having a sensitive stomach to certain foods. I would just avoid those foods or deal with the symptoms. There isn't really any treatment for this. However, if when this happens you are vomiting continuously for a while then you need to see a doctor.
Avatar f tn Hi, If acid reducing medications are giving relief, then it is highly possible you are having peptic ulcer disease. An upper GI endoscopy may be done for confirmation.
Avatar f tn That's not good for you weather your pregnant or not. If you're throwing up stomach acid it means you're getting sick on an empty stomach which can cause dehydration and there's probably blood because the acid is burning your throat. Throwing up blood is never ever a good thing. Try to keep something in your stomach even if its just lots if water. Even that will protect your throat if you can't stop getting sick.
Avatar f tn He has had and endoscopy that showed scaring in his stomach and stomach emptying scan that was fine. My question is, what else can he take or tests can be run to help him? He is 9 yrs old and has been throwing up since he was born and it is now starting to prevent him from having a happy active lifesstyle, he doesn't want to do things because he is afraid he will be sick. He is a very picky eater and grazes most of the day. Any help you can offer would be wonderful.
Avatar f tn Sometimes the only relief is to stick my finger down my throat and induce vomiting. The food doesn't go down into my stomach but stays in the esophagus region until I have to "get rid of it". Sometimes theres so much acid thrown up that it has the appearance of "boiling" in the toilet bowl and even 1 hour after eating, the food thrown up has not gone through any digestion at all (probably because it hasn't made it to my stomach yet).
Avatar f tn He will wake up with Pain raiting of 8 in his stomach which he will end up vomiting a Yellowish bile, this will releive the pain for a short bit but then it comes back. he is unable to eat or drink anything during the run on this. We have tried hospitals which they will give fluids through IV then give him something for Vomiting then pain meds, after this he will be ok for a few days or sometimes longer.
Avatar m tn Please PLEASE look up Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome. The wikipedia account is written by an SMA survivor, like my fiance, who was suffering from dibilating abdominal pain, vomiting, and intense weight loss for several years before corrective surgery simply because it is rare and many doctors wouldnt recognize it on a ct scan, endoscopy, or g.i. series. You need to find a g.i.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am not sure if I got acid reflux or just some sores in my stomach. They took tests and my throat was okay. The doctor saw some sores in my stomach. I can't keep any food down. I have been taking 2.5 mg of Zyprexa an anti-pyschotic pill for five years. I think this is how I got acid reflux. I weigh only 97 lbs at 5'6. I lost 10 lbs. I never really gained alot of weight with Zyprexa. My top weight was 120 over a year ago. I am taking liquid supplement drinks to gain weight.
Avatar f tn I did a little reading on acid reflux and vomiting in your sleep. (I know you said there wasn't any actual vomit, it was probably just the acid coming up) This is common and it seems there are things you can do at home to help with this: 1. Stop eating 2-3 hours beore bed. 2. Sleep with your head inclined 3. Avoid spicy foods and caffeine 4. Eat more frequent smaller meals. I hope this helps, obviosly if it doesn't I would see your doctor.
Avatar n tn however, repeated vomiting only brings the stomach acids up into the esphopagus and can cause damage. I must repeat...see a dr and post an update.
Avatar f tn Hope it is cut I had the same issue with my first pregnancy. I think it was because I was vomiting on an empty stomach, so it was mostly stomach acid coming up.
