I'm curious to know if you're vomiting along with a bowel movement?
Or are you eating food and then throwing it up with no bowel movement? Or are you just sitting there, maybe haven't eaten in a while and then all of a sudden get nauseous and vomiting, still with no bowel movement?
I'm asking because I, too, have had MAJOR vomiting with bowel movements issues (it's not in any medical dictionary, but the "urban dictionary" online calls this VOMICATION!).
Since August, I've thought I was working on developing a stomach ulcer. It was a dull ache until January of this year when it became painfully unbearable. I was certain it was a stomach ulcer. So my GI scheduled me for an Upper Endoscopy and an ultrasound of my gall bladder AND put me on CARAFATE to take away the pain I was having right in the middle of my breastbone...right at the top of my stomach-area.
Turns out I have gall stones...so my GI figured the pain was from the gall stones, cancelled the Upper Endoscopy and instead scheduled me for surgery to have my gall bladder removed. I'm doing that next Tuesday.
But since the first of January, my bowel movements with gas have been so awful and the gas pain has been so bad that it has caused me to vomit while I'm sitting on the toilet pooping....pooping and puking at the same time! I've done that 23 times since the first of January. Lost a lot of my food (which I haven't eaten much of anyway) and because of that have lost a lot of weight, my iron levels have gotten lower, I've been massively fatigued, malnourished...etc. etc.
I went in to ask my GI about the vomiting with the bowel movements last week b/c I was anxious about feeling so crappy prior to my surgery. HE said he didn't know WHAT would be causing me to vomit during a bowel movement...EH?! I mean, he'd never even heard of anyone doing that. HUH?! Has he simply never had a the flu? This is different from the flu but still...seems fairly obvious that PAIN of ANY kind could induce vomiting...so he was of no help in telling me WHY I might be VOMITING whille POOPING...
...but he DID send me for an Abdominal & Pelvic CT scan to see if THAT showed anything (I was thinking that the vomiting with BM's were b/c of a possible obstruction) but that test came back fine...I mean, other than the fact that it pointed out I still have CROHN'S!!!
Well, I'm rambling at this point...sorry.
I went on a low-residue diet for several weeks (not by choice, but because I felt so bad) but the vomiting DID get better. It's been 2 weeks since I threw up or dry heaved with a bowel movement...
I sure hope you find some answers (AND RELIEF!) soon.
