Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

I have reviewed your question and other expert answer.

Well if you are unable to keep liquids down then you need to visit emergency room for IV fluids and anti-emetic injections and anti-spasmodic injection.

You can take such self care measures first and if you develop vomiting in next 1-2 hours then visit emergency room.

Hope this helps.
Use reply to let me know if you have further queries.

But I'm having blood getting coughed up and chest I can't even sleep cause it's so bad
Health Professional: Dr. Anil, Doctor (MD) replied 12 months ago

Thanks for the follow-up.

You should try OTC liquid Emetrol which helps in relieving nausea and vomiting and take OTC Robitussin DM for cough.

Hydrate yourself gradually with Gatorade.

And if your symptoms'll persist then visit emergency room again.

Otherwise try other self care measures gradually.

Hope this helps.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
