I feel awful. Went out to this nice kinda upscale dinner and had to go vomit three times. GRRRRRAWWW!!! Can't we just say "uncle" with our diseases...just once in awhile?! My regular doc put me on phenergan...which I was already taking and he set me up to take it every four hours whether I'm nausated or not. If it doesn't work, then surprise, go to the ER. Honestly, can't stand the thought of any of that crap!
I'm trying to be upbeat. Blah blah blah BLAH! Screw it all. It's a retarded disease with even more stupid, barely functioning DOCTORS who don't honestly understand what it is to HAVE this. Hehehe.
Okay, here's what I don't want to see happen but will happen if I do go. I go into ER, they take blood, and SURPRISE, low on potassium and/or iron. Because they're stupid, you explain to three nurses, possibly two radiologist assistants, and one ER doctor who could honestly care less that you have Crohns. It's almost like this expression comes over their faces when you say it. Like you don't take care of yourself or follow your doctors orders and THAT'S why you're sick.
Meh! I'm tired of the puking and  the eating anything and taking of medicines. To lowest blasted heck with it...hehehe, which I figure is about the time you have to have emergency surgery and your insides are all diseased and abscessed and fistulated. LOL, fistulated. Another fun word...reminescent of vomitous. tongue
I'm tired and sick and sick of being sick and tired. Hehe, and who amongst us hasn't said that before?
Now, I'd raise my nonexistant alcoholic drink that I'm not allowed to drink to all of us who are putting up with this ridiculously addled disease that opens the doors to even more fun diseases...or rather that all chronic diseases open the door to all the other fun chronic diseases. Ahhh well. Wish I could even put this disease blame on that acne medicine but I never did take any. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh well.

I'm sorry :(
For me, I only get the vomiting before/during a really bad flare. Once the flare is under control, the vomiting subsides. I don't know much about phenergen , but it rings a bell. do some people take it for morning sickness in the states? I know you guys haven't approved diclectin.
anyway, just wanted to mention that when my nausea's real bad I get a script for Stemitil (sp?) It works pretty well, but makes you drowsy. There's another really strong anti-nausea pill but supposedly it's only for people getting chemo and costs something like $75 a pill . Ouch!

I think the other med that Tara28 is referring to is Zofran. It works pretty well and doesn't cause drowsiness, but it is really expensive, even as a generic.

Have you been checked for gastritis? The only time I have had such an immediate vomiting episode like you describe is when I have gastritis. I can't tolerate eating much of anything when I have it. I have to just keep to very bland, like saltines and broth, and very minimal amounts at a time, or I throw up within minutes. Once the ulceration has healed, usually a week or so, I can gradually add back in food.

CD 20 years officially, 30 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....

I have what they call chronic nausea because of my resections. I take Zofran 8 mg everyday, when I wake early in the morning to go pee or whatever (usually around 3 am). Then at brunch/lunch time take a Zofran 4mg, then of course, I take the Phenergan at bedtime. Sometimes I even have to throw an extra 1/2 of Phenergan in there if I have a bad day. I hate puking, but these meds at least help to help me thru my day. This disease sucks big time, I can't agree more. And then they say food doesn't effect it. Yeah, right!! Food generally is the cause of me having to take extra on those bad days.

Sorry your evening was ruined by Crohns! We do understand, thats for sure.

Thanks everyone.
Been on Zofran. LOTS 'o times, hehe. Actually, the problem here is the SAME exact problem I've been having. It never went away. Just hid under the three-four months of repeated prednisone tapers.
All I know is I've had this blasted nausea for so long...meh.
