I have had three vomiting attacks since before Christmas. The first was put down to food poisoning, the second, I donno, and the third was contracting the 'vomiting bug' when visiting a rheumy last week.

Is there anything in LUP lit to say that vomiting is common.

I dont vomit food funnily enough its bile and usually happens in the morning time when I wake.

Hi Ann,

That actually sounds like it could be low blood sugar. Do you feel better after you eat a little something?? My mom gets sick if she doesn't eat something first thing in the morning.

I hope the others have some ideas for you. Let your doctor know about this pattern too.

Blessings!

Could be from medication to. You stomach empty, when you get up so it has nothing to give up. Hence, the bile. And you should talk to a dcotor about that, bile is not to come up.

still not recovering from the bloody hospital vomiting bug. No more vomit or s.. but very very weak and get shattered in an instant.
No energy.
crohns also flared as did the sjogrens.
So meds for crohns I upped a bit and more moisture stuff and acidopolus for the sjogrens as the trush went awol.
Also plenty of fortified special drinks I get on script.
read a lot on the LDN meds and was very interested. Will let my neuro know about it and my crohns guy whom I see for first time in late march.
Hope he is nicer than my new rheumy.
I am really decked after this bout.
Last night I thought I'd have to literally CRAWl from the sitting room to the bedroom, I could hardly stand up. Came to bed at 8pm
Tonight it was earlier and was feeling so crape around 5 came to bed but too frightened to stay here so went back into the sitting room and lay on the sofa listening to Oklahoma, the musical on thhe record player!!!
I wish I wasnt so sick.
i was thinking of going to the MAYO CLINIC to see if they'd know why I am so ill.
Do you think it worth it and how much would it cost to have an MOT there? That is an overall check of everything.

Hi Ann . . . so sorry you are still feeling so poorly.

Doctor and Hospital visits here are WAY expensive. A day at the local hospital without any doctors or meds or tests is $1,000 per day. Then they add every little thing to that base cost. There is a cost to draw blood (each time) and an additional cost to process it. There is a cost for any test . . . plus a cost to a "special" doc who reads the results and interprets it for the doctor who ordered it. My CT scan with contrast was $3,000 and that doesn't include the interpretation. OY!! So, 3 days in the hospital last month was over $10,000 and they really never settled on exactly what was wrong. I went home still unable to eat (everything was going right through me with extreme pain in the low abdomen). *sighhhhh* I really had a big rant before I went home and told them that they should put a sign outside the hospital on a big vending machine that reads "Insert money here and get nothing in return!!"

I really feel for you . . . diagnostic limbo is SO frustrating!!

I hope some caring health care professional will finally figure things out for you. Here in the US, at each hospital, there is a person called an Ombudsman. If you go see this person while you are in the hospital (or you can ask them to come to your room) . . . he/she will help coordinate your care or get things moving if doctors are not doing their job or can't coordinate. They even help sort things out within a family to make sure that upon going home things are made really clear to everyone involved. The Ombudsman has a much bigger function than that, but they are a very under-utilized resource.

Keep us posted.

Blessings!

Ann,

 I go to the Mayo Clinic . I think they are great at diagnosing things. The cost for a full look at everything would probably be between $20,000 and $30,000. They are more expensive then most hospitals. I hope you find some answers.

thanks Laura for that. Way, way beyond what I can afford I am afraid.
I wouldnt be insured either from Ireland to go there, so it would have to be out of my own pocket and I am single and have hardly ever really worked cos of my circumstances.
Please, please tell me....its a weird question...how ILL can you feel with as I was told I had, mild sjogrens.
I feel I am getting sicker and sicker. I cannot believe that since my collapse in 05 that it was just sjogrens.
More and more i think its Lupus with CNS involvement.
I feel shattered tired, now I am hardly able to do a thing athough I do push it but in past two weeks just sleeping a lot and lying down.

If the mepacrine works will it make a huge difference, I am unable to take plaquenil cos of rubella eye damage.

I feel so ill I feel I am dying.
No blood work has indicated that, but you have just got to look at me and see that I am near dead on my feet and the patronising looks from strangers seem to say the same with the sympathetic weak smile.
I really am frightened.
second week of the mepacrine.

Ann, how are you doing?  So you didn't start getting ill until you got home from the hospital?  Was it immediately following the rheumy visit, or was it a few days after?  You can catch some awful viruses and bacteria from hospitals.  Just making me wonder if this is something quite serious?  I really hope not, and I'll say some prayers for you.  When you're up to it, let us know how you are okay?
 
Love

ginny en all!

I am feeling much better today, I think Gingin, it was your prayers, defo. I have never felt so ill. I didnt get a great sleep but I went early and this morning I never felt such a difference.
It must have been the vomiting bug I got that brought me so low.
Oh boy it was bad.
My 'motions' were normal and my candida was practically non existant. I didnt feel violently sick and nauseus.
I was out pre-dawn again and took some more pics over by Killiney, I sent you ginny, and Kaitlin some images, I will post again on Photobucket, would love others to see them, but will do that later.
Marji are you around too. How are you doing?
so much much better and so is mood too.
Got an appointment with Prof. Hughes in London for next week by shear chance so am absolutely delighted.
Gonna talk to him some good and proper!!
xx for now,
thinking of you all.
