Customer Question
I fell on my...

I fell on my back yesterday, lower area and left thigh on the kitchen floor. I felt a little quesey at the time (my stomach was empty) and later ate lightly but after awhile vomited twice. This precluded my taking Vicodin to ease the awful pain, but today I did take a couple and seemed to be all right; however, later (I only had ginger ale today) I vomited a bit of clear acid. Should I worry about not being able to eat without nausea?

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

It started yesterday after the fall. I did vomit twice, as I explained. Did you read what I wrote?

Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Nausea, vomiting can occur in head injury.
It is not common with injury to back or thigh.
Anxiety, stress, reflux of acid can be factors.
You can take Zantac or Nexium now.
Antacid can be taken too.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.

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.
