I am a patient that is just starting to be tested because I feel nausea 10 seconds right after I eat a meal and feel a gagging feeling for about 10 seconds and then the feeling goes away. I sometimes feel some discomfort, but nothing else. I have had an X-ray, an ultrasound, and another test that checks if the gallbladder is giving out the right amount of chemical enzymes from my liver. They all came out good. I also had a blood test that came out good. I am taking a test where I have to drink a liquid and then blow into a plastic bag to check for bacteria. After that test, I am taking an endoscopy next week. I still do not know what is wrong with me.

I'm not in the greatest shape because I have always either gotten a ride or driven everywhere I've gone. I have a fear of buses so I have never ridden one. Two weeks ago I ended up having to start walking to and from work in the AZ heat. I work from 8-5 M-F. I only lived just under four miles from my work, so it was not that bad. Circumstances changed and moved 3 days ago and I moved just under 15miles away. So I got a bike and rode it to work. I was worn out, hot and just miserable, but I survived. On the way home both my front and back brakes started to stick, so it felt like I was riding up hill the whole way home. I ended up breaking my water bottle so I did not have anything to drink and I had nothing to lock my bike up so I did not stop. No one was available for a ride, I decided (hastily), to just get it done and over with. Not five min after I got home I started vomiting, I tried everything to cool down, but did not stop till 2:30am. I was okay by the time I had to go to work again that same morning. I decided I was going to ride the bus, so I packed up my four kids, and walked to the bus stop a mile away. Not even a block into the walk I started shaking and couldn't breathe. I made it to day care and work. Now I started vomiting again and everything I drink only makes me vomit more. I am still at work and do not know what I should do.

I have 14 bulging discs in my back, 7 on top, and 7 on the bottom. I woke up in the morning with severe pain in my lower back, then suddenly started vomiting for a whole half hour.

Twice in the last two months, I have vomited heavily, without any fever, and both times I have a headache, body weakness for about two days and black stools. I was hospitalized two years ago for hypertension and I take blood pressure meds twice a day. This does not feel like a cold or flu, I am also taking narcotics for osteoarthritis for my neck, back, and knees. This vomiting comes fast and hard, then it is gone and I am constipated for the day. I am concerned about these symptoms, I get a flu shot every year and I never get sick.

I became very ill after taking Vicodin on an empty stomach. I had severe nausea as well as hot flashes and I felt weak as if I would faint.

I was at a little league game yesterday and had a hot dog from the snack shack. Soon after, I felt my head spinning (vertigo) and malaise. I walked around thinking that my sugar may have gone up (I'm a diabetic) and to exercise and bring my sugar level down. I had dinner at home without problems. At about 4am I woke up because I had vertigo, and got up to check my sugar, which was 133. I had a piece of bread and as I was going back to sleep, I had nausea and vomiting. I went back to bed and got up at 11am again with nausea and vomiting, this time only yellow bile fluid. I still feel malaise and some nausea some 24 hrs after hot dog.

I have started getting frequent headaches. I don't know what a migraine feels like, but the other night was almost unbearable. My insurance has denied a CT scan. I wake up and I'm vomiting masses of mucus. It is so upsetting in the mornings. It's almost 1 pm pacific time and I am barely able to start taking a couple of sips of broth. I am so weak and tired and this is really going to start affecting my performance at work. It fades away by late afternoons. This is almost every morning. I wonder why this is. I should just pay out of pocket for a CT scan. It would be worth it to know what's wrong.
