I've thrown up many times within the past year while pooping at the same time. I get the cold sweats and body chills and then out of nowhere, while pooping, my mouth starts to water and I vomit. Sometimes if I haven't eaten anything recently, it's just awful dry-heaving.
It almost feels like there's so much stool inside me that while I'm going it's literally coming from the start of my small intestine and working it's way out...like the BM that's coming out is connected to the very start of my small intestine. Other times, I think it's the pain associated with the BM that causes the nausea. Then other times I think the vomiting is set off by the smell of the BM!
I've told my GI about my vomit-spells and told him it worried me because I thought I might have a partial blockage. He didn't think that was the case, though, because I wasn't having any problems going to the bathroom. Plus I wasn't vomiting every day.
Somehow I've managed to be lucky enough to be HOME with my OWN trash can next to me each time it's happened (which has been at least 25 times or more in the past year). I keep a plastic ziplock bag with me everywhere I go, just in case.
