My cd has been what I would call "good" for the last few months. I have been under a lot of stress since I opened up a new store in October 09 (plus all the norms managing a house + CD + relationship probs). I am 24 and have a lot of responsibility. With that said.... 4 weeks ago, I started throwing up uncontrollably - called GI doc, says its the flu. Stay in bed for 7 days sick as h3!! - feel a little better. Ok Good, I thought. Now for the last 3 weeks I am throwing up after eating (not everytime). I get very nauseous in my stomach and am throwing up lots of bio at times. after I eject my insides I feel great. Is this CD? Stress? Also I am now having the big D 1-2 times a day. I'm just glad I have this couch in my office....

I have a lot of nausea, but rarely ever throw up. I think you need to call your doc again and tell them it's still going on. If you're not able to keep food down, it's not good. Are you able to keep liquids down? Try and drink liquids slowly as much as you can so you don't get dehydrated.

Hope you feel better soon!

I think you should call your doc and let him/her know you are still throwing up. You may be having severe reflux or crohn's higher up like in your esophagus. I'm not a doc so I don't know what is wrong, but you should have it checked out.

When I get to throwing up and no one around me is sick, I know it is Crohn's. I tend to obstruct though, so mine comes with pain. I've never had it last as long as you are describing though. Definitely have it checked out.

If you can keep liquids down and some foods, it might be a partial obstruction. You need to have a "small bowel follow through" XRAY to find out. They radiologist should specifically Xray the area of your intestines where the CD is located.

Try drinking chamomile tea with honey.

Best wishes.

-J It could be that you have developed a stricture. Thats the one time I get puking and nausea like that. But....when my anxiety ramps up I also get nausea and diarrhea. When you wake up in the morning are you nauseous pretty much right away? If so, then I am thinking you best get with your doc and get a SBFT done like Roni suggested. You could very well have a stricture. Are you on any meds? If not, you might want to try to get back on them. Hugs!

Call your doc...find out what is causing it

I have disease in my upper GI tract, and so I void very easily. Physical activity and pain is the main culprit with me.

I have had this same thing the past month. Before, even when hospitalized, I did not have the vomiting problem.
This time alone with severe D, I have vomiting and heartburn.
Yest., the dr. gave me an Rx for generic Previcid.
The copay was as a generic, and the bottle says that, but the capsules actually say Prevacid, so I don't know what that means.
The important thing is that I am so much better today. The growling is gone, I have kept soup down, and the D is gone.
The pills are 30 mg, whereas the OTC ones are 15 mg. I have never even tried the OTC ones before.

I currently take Pentasa and Imuran. I thought I would have to switch to Humira next week. Now I am hoping this will be enough.
Maybe this will help you. I hope so.

Good idea georgiabeach, I forgot that GERD can do that too. And yes, -J, anxiety and stress can cause nausea and vomiting. I got hit with a bout yesterday. Ticks me off when that happens too:) Hubby and I had some plans, but had to turn around and come home. Grrr!!! I feel your pain. Hugs!

I throw up a lot! I would say at least three mornings out of the week I wake up nauseated and end up vomiting before work. Its almost like a morning sickness of sorts, but usually I feel better after I throw up. I also get nauseas at night before bed and will occasionally vomit as well.
I told my dr. about it and he mentioned that it could be some kind of acid in my stomach thats causing the nausea, but you should check with your dr. It has been this way for me for three years! I find it gets worse the more stresed I am.

Hello J-,

Are you having any pain or just nasea? The inconsistent nasea is exactly what I had before Christmas. Turned out to be gall stones that were plugging the bile duct sometimes after I ate. It was really painful, and the episodes got more frequent. A CAT scan showed the stones and they removed the gall bladder. I am doing great now. I hope you find out what is troubling you!

I used to throw up a lot too, it was actually usually the worst part of my Crohn's - I used to throw up up to 30 times a day! I had a lot of partial obstructions though, but I don't think it was always due to obstructions. I also have Crohn's in my duodenum (it is quite mild though, not enough that I notice pain from it as far as I know) along with severe disease in my ileum - ascending colon (or did, since I just had surgery). I'm still not sure what always caused the vomiting for me, they never found any problems with my gallbladder, no stomach ulcers, reflux etc. Anti-nausea meds would never help as well, and generally speaking, it was usually much worse in the mornings, and sometimes very late at night. I also tend to throw up even if my stomach is empty. You're definitely not alone, wish I knew what caused it in my case but it could definitely be Crohn's related.

Valerie, that sounds exactly what happens to me! first thing in the morning (empty stomach) and late at night... throwing up! I haven't had any obstructions either, no ulcers, etc. Good to know I'm not alone, however, the vomiting over time is horrible on the enamel of your teeth! I have found I've had more cavities since I've gotten sick!

I have had a few obstructions to my knowledge, but I have no idea what causes it the rest of the time, although I know that my inflammation did cause very significant narrowing. Are you constipated? I usually am, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it, although there was a time when I had D along with the vomiting (back before I was diagnosed). It really is horrible on your teeth though, I noticed recently that my teeth have become a lot more sensitive than they used to be, it's getting really annoying.

I've got the same as misspriss82--I throw up a lot too, especially if I have an empty stomach. I will puke stomach bile. My gallbladder is fine too. I instantly feel better after throwing up and continue to feel well throughout the day. I do get nauseous in the evenings too, but it's mostly morning when I vomit. I had a partial obstruction last year when I had my first surgery, but the puking hasn't stopped.

Valerie, to answer your question, I am not constipated, in fact, I have had diarrhea everyday since I've been diagnosed three years ago! buh!  I have gotten used to it, but the vomiting I will never get used to!  It has gotten better over time, but there are days that I can barely make it ouf of the shower before getting sick.  And its usually always on an empty stomach.

I've had vomitting that was caused by a new drug I was trying. Could this be the cause? Or perhaps a change in dosages?

I filled mine for generic as well and the pharmacist said the generic actually comes from the same manufacturer as the non-generic. Which is why it still says Prevacid on the pills. Just goes to show you how they can price gouge us. Anyways, prevacid helps me immensely when I have bad heart burn.
Feeling the best I have in several years! And it keeps getting better!

I've had nausea/vomiting as part of my symptom set since I started having problems. I've recently been diagnosed with gastroparesis, and the treatment (Reglan 4x/day) has helped the vomiting tremendously, but I'm still nauseated on a regular basis.

I'd ask a doctor or an advice nurse for some options.
