I am 29 years old and have been suffering with unexplained nausea and vomiting since i became pregnant with my oldest daughter in 2011.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have been dealing with episodes of nausea and vomiting for 8 years now. I have seen my primary care doctors, who referred me to a gastroenterologist who I've now been seeing for about 7 years. I have had numerous endoscopies, a colonoscopy, food emptying test, parasite test, ct scans of stomach and a food allergy test. Out of all those tests the only thing to ever show was in one endoscopy i had eosinophil cells leaking into my stomach for no known cause as to why. I've been told i had CVS (cyclic vomiting syndrome) and have been on medications that would help but do not help at all. Ive since stopped taking all medications ect zophran and phenergan when in these boughts of vomiting and nausea.
The episodes come on without any warning. I could be fine today and wake up sick tomorrow. I will start feeling bloated and nauseated and then start to puke yellow or green bile. These episodes usually last 2 to 5 days at a time. Im u able to eat or drink during these episodes because anything hitting my stomach causes so much pain and discomfort and leads to more vomiting. I go in to my local hospital for iv fluid and nausea meds to help try and stop it.
This has been going on ever since i got pregnant with my oldest daughter 8 years ago. I have three girls now and each pregnancy i was terribly sick and diagnosed with hyperemesis graverdram, but after babies were born i still continue the sickness.
I feel nobody truly knows what is causing this and i am just expected to live this way. I haven't been able to work in 8 years. I can not plan any vacations or plans because i never know when this monster will hit. Please help me find a cure so i can be the person, mom and wife that i know i could be.
