Handling Vomiting Up To 20 Times?
I’ve been vomiting since yesterday night and I’ve been throwing up until now, counting around 20 times, and my chest hurts, my stomach hurts and it feels really weak, every time I take medicine I throw up immediately, I can’t fill it with food at all, then my head is really dizzy I thought at first it was caused by a cough because I had a cough, guess how to handle it
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
One of the causes of vomiting is coughing. When you cough, the contractions of the stomach muscles are strong enough to force the stomach contents to come out, causing vomiting. However, if it is true that the cause is purely coughing, then this vomiting should only occur if you cough, not so often as you are experiencing.
It could also be, massive vomiting occurs due to other causes, for example:
Pregnancy Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid) Viral or bacterial infections, eg gastroenteritis, typhoid fever, urinary tract infections, scarlet fever, kidney infections, hepatitis Appendicitis (inflammation of the appendix) Bulimia (eating disorders) Migraine (primary headache causing a throbbing sensation) especially on one side of the head) Vertigo (dizziness due to disturbances in the balance center in the brain or inner ear) Brain tumor Head injury Side effects of drugs, etc. Chest and stomach pain may occur due to increased stomach acid which causes irritation in the throat area and also stomach. While weakness and dizziness, can occur due to dehydration and electrolyte balance disorders due to vomiting that you experience.
It's best, given the vomiting you experience very often, you don't leave it unattended. Consult directly yourself to a doctor in order to do further observation. Chances are, not only the interview and physical examination, the doctor will also recommend that you do blood tests, x-rays, or ultrasound.
At this time, you should get more rest and limit tiring activities first. Although nausea, keep eating small portions, as long as it frequently. Not yet bersantan foods, spicy, and too sour. Do not also consume excessive caffeine, alcohol, or drugs haphazardly. Expand eat soft food consistency and drinking warm water. Avoid consuming instant food or snack too carelessly. Stomach and chest in order to feel more comfortable, you can compress it with warm water.
Hope it helps ya..
