I would like to ask if you can help me clarify my current condition - for the past 5 days (including today), every time I wake up in the morning, I immediately feel nauseous and then vomit. The vomit tastes bitter (acidic?), and even though there's nothing more to vomit I would only feel a little better but the nausea will come back in a few minutes. Also, I notice that my heart seems to increase in pulse rate when I'm feeling nauseous, is that normal?
When I try to relax myself by forcing myself to breathe slowly and trying not to think about it, it works at times but then after a while I would feel like vomitting again, and I did. I've gone to the hospital and they say I have epigastric pain, which I'm not sure of. I do know that I have gastric problems for years but I have never experienced this before. Usually when I have gasric attacks I will experience a pain somewhere in my stomach at first and it rarely causes retching/ vomitting, and after taking the medicines (Eviline forte suspension (120 ml), Dhacopan - hyoscine butylbromide (10mg) tablet, Goldshield - ranitidine (150mg) tablet, Doridone - Domperidone (10mg) tablet, and oral rehydrtion salt), the gastric will subside. In the worst cases I've had was gastric pain in the morning that had a constant terrible "twisting" feeling that was unbearable accompanied by painful vomitting that I became very weak and had to be taken to the emergency. I was given an injection and was admitted to the day ward.
So back to my current condition, I have never experienced gastric which occurs this long and which happens every time I wake up in the morning; and why do I feel nauseous? Is it really gastric? My previous gastric experiences were not like this.
I am really concerned because it's been occuring for days now. Basically I would wake up, feel my breaths getting shorter and quicker as I feel the wave of nausea, followed by a headache and then vomitting. After vomiting the nausea is not completely gone, I still feel uneasy in the stomach and soon the nausea will come again. I've tried drinking milk and eating porridge before I go to sleep so that I won't have gastric or whatever this pain is in the morning, but it still does. And in the morning, after taking Domperidone tablet (it says to relieve nausea and gastric, and to be taken at half an hour or an hour before eating), I would wait half an hour and then eat oatmeal and drink milk. After that I take hyoscine butylbromide tablet, the Goldshield ranitidine tablet, and the eviline forte suspension, and finally I take a rest. However, a while after that, I felt nauseous again and I tried to hold it back but end up accidentally vomiting instead. So does that mean the medicines aren't working for it? And if it doesn't, why?
What's puzzling me is that after 3 hours of this rest-nausea-vomit cycle, it begins to cease by itself, and by midday my appetite will have regained. It wouldn't have bothered me that much if it weren't for the fact that the next day, the same thing happens again. The next day would be worser because I would wake up having anticipatory anxiety which worsens the nauseousness. It's been 5 days now, will I ever completely recover?
Also, I should include that I've found that every time I eat food that are barbequed and fried the night before, the next morning I would have gastric pain. Twice I have had what I think is more like food poisoning than gastric due to having bbq the night before. Why I think it is food poisioning is that because my stomach feels like it's tightened very painfully and it feels like contraction and release (and last time the doctor said my stomach is sensitive to food that are not well-done). When the tightened feeling comes, it really hurts unbearably. My current condition started 5 days ago when the night before I had bbq chicken, and the next morning I felt nauseous. However, again, I am not sure either if this is food poisioning because my stomach doesn't feel any pain, but I feel very nauseous and every time I vomit my stomach feels empty and I could feel pangs of acidity in my stomach, but I feel afraid to eat because it would immediately make me nauseous.
Sorry for the long question, but I was just hoping to give you as much information as I can to help my know what my condition may be, and what may help to ease it (not just in terms of medicines). The doctors here keep saying the same thing, but I'm just scared it might be something different.
Thank you very much
