Common Questions and Answers about What causes vomiting of undigested food


Avatar f tn Have you noticed what he's doing before he vomits? My previous cat had a big problem with eating too fast as well as things she shouldn't be eating. Try to encourage your cat to drink a little more. He may just have an upset stomach.
Avatar f tn Hey Girlmom, I'd be willing to bet it's not an ulcer, matter of fact if you do a search on symptoms of Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome and of ulcers, you will see what you are having symptoms of. Read the first post here, ten years of posts about this, how come no DR wants to post on this topic? I see DR posts on other topics, but none here. Prescription without proper diagnosis is unprofessional and unethical at the least.
Avatar f tn The most obvious causes for your dog's symptoms include:Giardia, Pancreatitis, HGE, IBD, Parvo, and stress colitis. Another possibility is a GI foreign body (The GI foreign body would require a barium study and possibly surgical removal of the object). There are snap tests for giardia, pancreatitis and parvovirus that can be performed in-house immediately. These diseases, except a GI foreign body require symptomatic therapy at the vet's office.
Avatar n tn My friend, female, early 40's has been told she has "bradycardia of the small intestine." Instead of a series of small peristatlic waves which move her food along, she experiences just 1 or 2 HUGE waves, then a flat line. Those huge waves are what causes her to vomit several times ea. time she eats anything - about 10-12 times per day - every day - for the past 2 yrs. She has been to too many specialists to keep count of. They all write out prescriptions and send her to someone else.
Avatar f tn It causes nausea and vomiting of undigested food, sometimes a long time after eating. In my case, this test was normal but it is worth looking into for your daughter. I know how difficult it is to feel that something is seriously wrong but be unable to find a diagnosis. Doctors can be dismissive, so it is critical to find a good one who will take up the torch for your daughter. I am also left with the diagnosis of IBS, which I seriously doubt as I have no lower digestive problems.
Avatar n tn One symptom my son has that is not mentioned prominently on the CVS website is a sometimes lengthy prodromal period where he belches a sulphurous smelling gas, sometimes for hours before the vomiting starts. The vomitus then contains completely undigested (i.e., recognizable) food particles, even when his last meal was as much as 24 hours prior to the first vomiting episode, and no noticeable bile.
Avatar n tn Not sure the other times. Not sure if this is just coincidence. The vomit is very strong smelling and a lot of undigested food for 8 hours after dinner time. I would also say it is at projectile strength. I am not convinced it is dehydration linked (we do live in a hot environment during the summer - up 45 deg C/113 deg F, but it is cooler at the moment – with tops of only 25 C/77 F deg). He is fine 10 minutes after he chucks and is ok the next day for school etc (after he eats something).
Avatar n tn I suggest you might google candida as it can cause a variety of symptoms (IBS, burning mouth, depression) and even create food allergies as your absorbtion of food is messed up by the fungal overgrowth; basically causes leaky gut. Also might look into Celiacs Disease, which is basically an allergy to gluten. This allergy alot of times doesn't develop or at least doesn't show symptoms until adulthood. And it can create allergies or intollerances to other foods basically by leaky gut again.
Avatar n tn The behavior consists of daily, effortless regurgitation of undigested food within minutes of starting or completing ingestion of a meal. Gastroesophageal reflux disease The most common symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are heartburn (or pyrosis), regurgitation, and dysphagia. Patients typically regurgitate acidic material mixed with small amounts of undigested food.
685623 tn?1283485207 We owe a lot to pet food manufacturers like Hill’s, Iams, Purina, and Royal Canin for their years and years of research that has shown us how important nutrition is to the overall health of our pets. Research that continues to this day in the form of new diets and novel formulations that will help our pets continue to live longer. If it wasn’t for Dr. Mark Morris developing the first kidney diet for the seeing-eye dog, Buddy, a lot of pets would not live as long as they now do!
Avatar f tn Black blood is from the stomach or esophagus, the only other possible cause I can imagine is bleeding from Meckel's diverticulum (this is an inborn error, where a patch of gastric mucosa grows within small intestine, secretes acid and causes bleeding). Black color of blood is from acid. On basis of this black bleeding, I recommend your first investigation is upper endoscopy (gastroscopy). It seems urgent situation for me, it could be cancer.
Avatar f tn I do have frequent bowl movements and oftentimes whole undigested chunks of food will be in my stools. When severe I may throw up rather violently and it'll get into my sinus and cause facial swelling, ear aches and burning esophagus. I thought I had food allergies or absorption/enzyme/digestion issues. But know one seems to be able to figure it out. My labs are okay except my pancreatic enzymes are higher. Which I have been told by some that is normal for my heavy training volume.
Avatar m tn Irritable Bowel Syndrome Chronic diarrhea that contains undigested food may be a symptom of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a disorder of the lower intestinal tract. Additional symptoms of IBS can include abdominal pain, swelling, chronic or frequent bouts of constipation (between bouts of diarrhea), emotional stress and loss of appetite. If you experience chronic diarrhea and any number of these signs, discuss your symptoms with your doctor to determine whether you have IBS.
Avatar n tn Because the risk of u going low, is very very low, as you will have the munchies, and most likley go high. I dont munch of junk food, barly at all. If im at home, id reach for a diet coke, some crackers and cheese maybe, i dono, but even that is reallllly good when your stoned.
Avatar n tn I am pretty much dianosing myself he told me I showed signs of sluggish emptying on the EGD and I am sure that is what this is my stomach doesn't emtpy correctly and this is what causes me to have the acid problem, besides the fact I am having alot of problems digesting meat, dairy, etc what I can eat today and digest tomorrow it doesn't. Very hard thing to deal with.
Avatar f tn Just to add, gastroparesis was one of my many symptoms of hypothyroidism. Excerpt from the American College of Gastroenterology - Gastroparesis... "Symptoms of gastroparesis include bloating, nausea, early fullness while eating meals, heartburn, and epigastric pain. These symptoms are often referred to as dyspepsia. Ingestion of solid foods, high fiber foods such as raw fruits and vegetables, fatty foods or drinks high in fat or carbonation may cause symptoms.
Avatar m tn Vomiting that occurs after a few hours after taking food and which contains undigested food could indicate obstruction of the gastric outlet or the upper small intestine. Crohn's can cause narrowing of the gut and obstruction. If it is persisting get yourself examined by your doctor.
Avatar m tn We have tried different foods etc. He gets a hairball and indoor cat formula mix of dry food and gets fed one can of wet food at night. He gets treats (hairball) a few times a week. There is no rhyme or reason to this. He makes these horrible sounds before he does it, so I know if I hear the sound then I can expect to find a trail of cat puddles throughout the house. What causes this? He is an indoor cat only and has never been outside.
Avatar f tn - Burning pain in centre of abdomen (around navel), worse at night - Severe stomach cramps, upper and lower right side of abdomen, most days - Excess wind with sulphuric smell - Daily bloating and distension - Once a week wake up in early hours (4am,5am) with feeling of low blood sugar, dizziness, headache, vomiting and diarrhea.
Avatar m tn I am worried that he is backed up and losing his appetite as a result. Also he is not vomiting. Any suggestions as to what his problem may be.
5856747 tn?1403352282 It is twice as common among women than men and has a peak incidence among those aged between 20 and 30 years of age. Causes of IBS or Spastic Colon: • The pain, bloating and discomfort arising from IBS is caused by the muscles running along the large bowel going into spasm giving rise to the sufferer experiencing abdominal cramps diarrhoea and constipation. Why these muscles go into spasm is not clear. • Some doctors harbour a certain enmity towards those suffering from IBS.
1442257 tn?1288623744 The symptom of vomiting undigested meals from the day before suggests gastroparesis. I would recommend getting a gastric emptying scan (the 4 hour version). Motillium is not available in the US (I'm in the US and on it, but only certain doctors are legally allowed to prescribe it by the FDA; it isn't helping anyways). Good luck.
Avatar n tn There does not seem to be a link to food that makes her vomit, in the day she can have milk(cow's)and not vomit.She can have no food after 4pm and still vomit her dinner, it is undigested food. Up until now she has been fit and well she has no allergies that I am aware and she has reached all her milestones. However during my pregency I suffered from gestational diabetes and was insulin for a short time.
Avatar n tn This started out as an incontinence issue, and now I have no idea what could be the possible causes of this so-called dilute urine. I do have to admit that my dog has been drinking more and more water lately, and she also has not been that hungry, Any thoughts. Givin the symstoms does anyone have any ideas of what this could be. So there is no tract, bladder, or kidney infection. No cushings, no diabeties, no renal failure.

Avatar n tn Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a condition of inflammation of the intestines. There are four common types of IBD, classified by what kind of white blood cells infiltrate the intestine: lymphocytes, plasmacytes, eosinophils and neutrophils. Without a doubt, the most common cause of IBD in pets is lymphocytic-plasmacytic enteritis, gastritis and colitis. If your pet’s intestines are inflamed long enough, the situation can create a host of other debilitating health conditions.
Avatar f tn And I have taken a round of antibiotics for possible SIBO. When my GI doc did not know what to do, he put me on IBS medication, linzess which made my stomach feel so full of pressure I thought it would burst. Then one night I ate a flour tortilla before bed, and had sever pains all through the night. I decided to put myself on a gluten free diet without my doctor's advice on it, and have been gluten free for three weeks now.
Avatar f tn If it gets bad enough that I induce vomiting to try to relieve it (which only works sometimes), my stomach contents seem to come out dry, as if all the liquid has drained from my stomach, leaving behind a thick mass of chewed, undigested food.
Avatar n tn My 12 year old daughter is having some cramping and has had 2 white stools that look like 1 inch little pieces of paper and 1 with clumps of mucas. Since, she has had what looks like aregular stool. Should she see a doctor?
Avatar m tn The outside of the pods varied in color. I rarely saw red ones after the really severe bout of vomiting. By this time I had seen white, orange, yellow, and even green ones. I saved one for the doctor’s office, then cut open the other one, scared to death of what I might find. The outside of it was soft and kind of see-through, like the consistency of a gummy bear. I saw that inside was a white powdery substance.
