What if whenever you go out to eat in public you start to throw up whenever your done or half way done? But at home you don't usually vomit

Two thoughts...: I have two thoughts on this. One, it could be the foods you're eating, of course, different when eating out as opposed to home. Two, could be an anxiety reaction - social phobia, or a fear of being out in public, or a fear of crowds in general. ...Read more

Child can drink anything without vomiting but can only eat a few bites of food and be full if eats more will throw up going on 4 days any ideas?

Kid vomiting: Inability to keep down just solids makes me think of some type of gastric outlet obstruction - this means things not emptying out of stomach into intestine properly. This is quite unusual in this age group. Could be something as simple as irritation in stomach from a virus to more serious things such as lymph nodes or tumor blocking the outlet. If not better by 7 days, needs peds GI eval and study. ...Read more

I've been experiencing mornings where I feel like I have to vomit and when I do, my gag reflex kicks in and I throw up a lot of mucus. Why?

Nausea in the mornin: There are several causes for nausea in the morning that range from hormonal changes in the body, to medications, to stomach/bowel irritation from food sources and infections, to ulcers and beyond. I would try to find out the cause of the nausea by seeing a GI specialist. The gag reflex is a normal reaction when nauseated and mucus may be from the stomach or the throat. Needs to be evaluated more. ...Read more

Keep hydrated: Your fear is expected. Yet you know you must or it is hospital time. Spend your waking hours sipping small amounts of hydration fluids continuously. Never take enough at one time to stretch the stomach and trigger emesis.If you can nibble at steamed rice or pasta without sauce you can get some energy. Your doc may be able to send out some meds. If you don't pee at least every 12 hours, get evaluated. ...Read more

The bleeding is: NOT normal and is likely due to the mechanical effect of vomiting PLUS possible esophagitis/gsatritis form your alcohol abuse (YES this is considered alcohol "abuse:) Any more than a little bleeding should send you to the Emergency Room at once...if the bleeding is just ONCE and as you say "intertwined" with mucous you should recover.
