Ive vomited 5 times. No fevers. I have chills and abdominal pain. I take a bunch of medications. I did however just start doxycycline. I am 23 and female. I have gerd and ibs

Thank you for the information,

There can be a few factors which can cause vomiting here.

Chills & abdominal pain can come from an infection.

GERD can cause vomiting.

Medications can be a factor.

Doxycycline often causes nausea & vomiting.

In repeated vomiting, bile can come up.

When the stomach gets empty, bile can come out.

I would advise to contact your doctor.

Please try to keep good hydration.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
