Comments from related studies:
From this study (10 months ago):
Symptoms have been going on for three years. Doctor's have done MRI's, CT's, Ultrasounds, and several lab test. They have yet to find any cause for the nausea, vomiting and dizziness. Only thing they have not tried is discontinuing some of the medicine.
From this study (10 months ago):
My father whom I'm writing this for, has had three episodes of vomiting, some
diarrhea (during one of these sieges,), in the past five weeks. During the first episode, the worst because he became dehydrated--we took him to urgent care where he had blood and urine tests, and an ultra sound of his belly. Nothing yielded any obvious problems. After the IV fluids he got while there, and using the anti-nausea meds, he recovered well. This med dissolves under the tongue.
Three weeks later the same symptoms came up, and he took the anti-nausea pills and once again recovered to normal activity which includes daily walk, exercise
bike, and twice a week exercise class. he has occasional glass of wine, plus daily Coke zero--and sometimes a cup of coffee. once a week we get a mocha with espresso. His diet is decent and appetite good.
When this happened again yesterday, i called his Cardiologist who didn't think this was heart related, but didn't rule out pancreatitis. Dad is once again taking the anit-nausea pill and is doing fine, eating bland and cautiously. I am bracing myself for another go round soon,,,if it happens again we will head back to urgent care.
