I have always had a lot of nausea/vomiting. The doctors were never sure why. I have gone for weeks at a time without being able to keep anything down--even water at times. I was on Reglan, Compazine, Phenergen, Zofran. None of them ever helped!
Generally, once I was admitted to the hospital and got lots of IV fluids, the nausea would subside, so the doctors decided I get the nausea when I get dehydrated, which then just makes me more dehydrated and makes it worse
