I have a big hangover. everytime i drink water, i vomit it (just yellow liquid). Should i force myself to drink more water/eat even if im vomiting it?

Slow Down, Hound!: First of all, that hangover is telling you(if you'll listen) that you've done some damage to your brain and liver. It's a message of what happens with excessive drinking over time.As for the water,there's no point if you just vomit it back up.If it's really bad get some Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) at the drug store.Yes, take water or an electrolyte-frequently in small amounts and by that I mean 1-2Tbs every 3-5 min ...Read more

Causes 2year 10month old toddler vomitting does not want to eat but only wants to drink water... however after a two hour interval he would vomit.

Lower GI and emesis: Please consider your toddler may have an issue with the lower GI tract. Consider there may be a partial blockage or mucus plug in the small intestine that is feeding the nausea, and vomiting. Simple ways of addressing this issue: don't force them to eat, encourage water, coconut water and diluted org. apple juice! Seek a GI doc that uses probiotic therapy and avoid milk products for now. ...Read more

I have a puss spot in the back of my throat and shortness of breath? I also burp when and after I eat or drink water.

I have a puss spot in the back of my throat and shortness of breath? I also burp when and after I eat or drink water.

Upper airway/gi prob: Pus spot in back of throat could be infection, but if have no sore throat, probably is build-up of food/bacterial debris that gets packed into the crypts of the tongue and lymph nodes. Shortness of breath is serious and needs to be checked out. Burping after eating or drinking usually is some type of maldigestion, and reflux of acid or gas into the esophagus. C your pmd, especially due to sob. ...Read more

You need a PPI: Hi, you most likely have reflux oesophagitis form the heartburn and the vomiting (your stmach acid burnt the lower end of your oesophagus)
You need to see your dr to get a prescription for a PPI (something like omeprazole or pantoprazole or esomeprazole) and if that does not help you need a gastroscopy ...Read more

Got norovirus and vomit every 20-40mins, i drink water every time I vomit but how long to absorb it to prevent dehydration?

Got norovirus and vomit every 20-40mins, i drink water every time I vomit but how long to absorb it to prevent dehydration?

Vomiting: I would try and wait at least an hour to try and sip on water or ice chips after vomiting. As for how much gets absorbed to prevent dehydration before you vomit, you absorb a little but lose most and possibly more through bodily fluids. You may want to try and ask for an anti nausea medication to help. ...Read more

Need emergent help.: Regardless of the ultimate cause to what you are experiencing, eight days without reliable intake of food and drink is unacceptable. I would advise you to present to the emergency department for testing and for at least the initiation of IV fluids while they attempt to diagnose what’s going on. ...Read more

Throat: If you dont have a cold at the same time, it sounds like acid reflux. See if you can make a link between what you eat and the symptom. You can try an OTC antacid. If you feel ill at the same time, may be a GI virus or less likely food poisoning. Check it out with your doctor ...Read more

My friend wanted to detoxify organism so he tried to drink water with salt and after that he vomited two times with blood.Is this serious? Nowhesfine.

Never do this?: I am not sure why he would do this as this old fashioned and proven to be harmful . People used to drink epsom salts. All this does is make you ill, can cause hypernatremia, as well as dehydration and diarrhea. .The emesis with blood suggest gastric irritation and may need to see a GI doctor for evaluation. Suggest that never do this again. By the way to detoxify oneself is bogus. Best wishes. ...Read more

My girlfriend vomited 4 times after drinking over the course of 3 hours so far. I've been making her drink water, but it doesnt seem to be helping. ??

Hope she's better.: This could certainly happen when someone drinks too much in an evening. Hydration is a good idea, as long as she doesn't just vomit up the water. Time usually helps this to resolve if it's just due to the alcohol, but if she's not better by now you may want to bring her to the doctor for an evaluation just to make sure nothing else is going on. ...Read more

Sounds like low BP: Those symptoms are often associated with a low blood pressure. It's easy to check...Take your BP sitting and standing. If the BP decreases to below a systolic (upper number) of approximately 90 with standing, it's consistent with postural hypotension (low BP upon standing). Usually, it will correct with drinking more fluids. Gatorade has salt in it and will raise the bp. ...Read more

Feeling nauseous, threw up and now feel like i have some food still stuck in throat. It also burns when I drink water or swallow. ?

Feeling nauseous, threw up and now feel like i have some food still stuck in throat. It also burns when I drink water or swallow. ?

Acid: When we vomit, stomach contents come up into regions that aren't prepared for them. This means that delicate tissues are exposed to acid & enzymes from which they have little to no protection. So, they get burned and irritated. It's normal for things to be sore for a few hours after. Try soothing medications like preparations of bismuth and return to eating slowly with bland foods at first. ...Read more

What's the latest one can eat when csection is scheduled for 1pm? Can I drink water?

Whenever: your surgeon and anesthesiologist tell you that you can eat last. They also will tell you if you can drink water. Usually it is at least 8-12 hours with no food, no water except a sip for medications. And as I just learned from my recent surgery, no gum as it gets the gastric juices going. The whole purpose of this is so you don't vomit stomach contents and get them into your lungs. ...Read more

Water for fullness : Drinking water before hand and during a meal can make you feel fuller. Drinking water during a meal can make you slow down your eating and that gives your brain a chance to get the signal that you are full before you eat too much. ...Read more
