my doc said that intense belly pain can cause nausea and vomiting. everything is fine in upper end.
its a pain thing.
i was nauseaus for the last few weeks anyway, and i get teh gag reflex going on when i even think about swallowing pills. but i think the nauseausness was due to that viscous cycle of not eating and feeling sick cuz ur hungry etc...
but now i just puke when the pain is super intense.
its not much, cuz i dont eat much. mostly liquid. but still unpleasant.
i was actually thinking yesterday, that maybe its starting to be habit a little bit. i am maybe subconsciously associating pain and puking, therefore whether or not i need to, i just puke anyway. does that make sense.
i dont puke 100% of the time, but it is a good 80% for sure.
i will ask doc about the hiatial hernia thing.
but he did assure me that it is not uncommon to vomit from intense belly pain. and alll my symptoms are in line with a severe flare.

waiting for blood test to see if i can start imuran
mesalazine granules 3g x1 a day (much nicer than a million tablets a day)
just finished 3 months of prednisolone (worked) and now back on 40mg a day (ick)
quercertin tablets, tumeric capsules, vitamin d3, enteric coated fish oil
pre-conception vitamins and minerals (cuz we trying to make a baby)
oxycontin for pain every 4 hours. plastic bags in the loo from the involuntary puking.
