Customer Question
I had a migraine...

I had a migraine early this morning, around 5 or 6 am, and then I started throwing up. Now it's almost 12:30 and I've been throwing up every 20 to 30 minutes. The migraine is mostly gone. I can't figure out why I keep throwing up.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Episodic

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

The nausea was just this morning and now

your vagus nausea nerve may be overstimulated at this point

your stomach could also be inflamed from your prior vomiting

you need something to break the cycle of vomiting

you should see a doctor and get strong prescription antinausea medications like odansatron or zoftran and strong stomach acid reducing agents like nexium or prilosec to help decrease your vomiting.

these medications will definitely help you

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you. I took Excedrin and am feeling much better.
Health Professional: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

that is good

you can use over the counter zantac and prilosec to help decrease stomach inflammation

ginger can help decrease nausea as well

flat ginger ale

I'm glad you are feeling better

work on drinking a bit more fluids to dry to replace the fluids you lost with vomiting

gadorade, water, chicken broth can help

What Customers are Saying:

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

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!!
