On average how long from the start of viral gastroenteritis symptoms to get to the point of the severe nausea/vomiting stage?

On average how long from the start of viral gastroenteritis symptoms to get to the point of the severe nausea/vomiting stage?

Symptom duration: Well there are quite a number of variables here-such as 'what virus', 'you' the patient, your condition 'before you got sick' etc. So it's hard to give a precise answer. Most of the times, it's just a day or two. If it's longer than that, then it may not be 'so simple' after all and would need professional evaluation. Dehydration, kidney damage, 'passing out', falls, muscle damage etc could result ...Read more

You might try another type and or some CBT therapy to learn skills to manage anxiety and understand it. It's not unusual - be patient - you'll find help and if you work at it, you'll master anxiety. ...Read more

Every 2 months I get severe nausea & vomiting. All tests are 'normal'. Doc says its just bad luck w/ stomach flu. Could there be another cause?

Sure: Guy or gal? If gal, could be related to hormones, menses, ovulation (perhaps just from one of the ovaries, thus every other month). Check timing of symptoms with menstrual cycle.
Could be cyclic vomiting syndrome; could be other triggers for the symptoms, could even be migraine related. Could be other stuff too.
Keep looking. ...Read more

Managing menstrual migraine is difficult, most patients with menstrual migraine will not respond to traditional migraine therapy. This condition must be professionally managed.

Can gastritis cause bad stomach pain, severe nausea & vomitting? Unable to keep food down x2 we on Q6hr Zofran (ondansetron) & Ativan. EGD today showed gastritis

Yes, but...: Yes, it can cause bad stomach pain, nausea and vomiting, but I've never seen cases with severe nausea and vomiting. Perhaps there is more going on like pancreatitis? How does your labwork look? I'm glad you have a GI specialist who hopefully and probably took a biopsy with the EGD. Poor you. I hope the zofran and ativan are working. Are you sure there is no bowel obstruction. How long on Simponi (golimumab)? ...Read more

Severe nausea and vomiting after sprinting 3 laps!? I guess I'm out of shape?

Perhaps: The body needs time to adapt to our physical demands. Ease into it in intervals to get the maximum benefit with rest in between. If you continue to have problems, there may be more to look into, including neurologic, inner ear, or electrolyte problems. Other causes can be heat stroke, or maybe even too much partying before running? (just kidding!). ...Read more

Azithromycin has induced severe nausea and vomiting. Vomit was initially greenish with consistency of snot. Now it is just green liquid. What do I do?

Azithromycin: Azithromycin can be taken with or without food, so try taking it with food. If that doesn't help, you should notify the provider who prescribed you the Azithromycin and tell them what you are experiencing. Sometimes antibiotics cause nausea. It is not necessarily a reason to stop the medication. ...Read more

Doc said, Inflammation in back right lung where it hurt, was coughing bad, still coughing a bit, but now severe nausea, and vomiting, with lung pain??

Chest pain: There is no such thing as 'lung pain'. There is pleuritic pain related to inflammation of the inner lining of the chest due to problems in the thoracic cavity. Given your symptoms, I recommend that you get evaluated in an emergency room where a chest xray should be done to evaluate what is going on. Update me with what happens after you are evaluated. ...Read more

16 weeks pregnant and have severe nausea and vomiting and at the ER, passed out took samples but no IV fluids, shouldn't we be hooked up to IV?

16 weeks pregnant and have severe nausea and vomiting and at the ER, passed out took samples but no IV fluids, shouldn't we be hooked up to IV?

Depends...: It all depends on how dehydrated they estimated you were. If they thought that you could go by with oral fluids only most likely they understood that the best treatment option was just that. If you persist vomiting and not tolerating even small sips of liquid might be time to go back for reevaluation. For now try very small sips of fluid and maybe dry crackers to help your stomach feel better. ...Read more

I have extreme dizzyness (to the point I couldn't get up once) severe nausea (no vomit) and diereah. Is it food poisoning or something else? Fast plz.

Viral Labyrinthitis: It sounds like you may have a severe case of labyrinthitis -an infection of the middle ear. You're at risk from volume loss (dehydration) given the GI symptoms. I assume any head motion triggers the dizziness? If so, try to stay hydrated with a child's sippy-cup. Then you don't have to move your head at all to drink. I would have a low threshold to go to the ER- they can give you IV fluids/meds. ...Read more

How long for Meclizine to start working if taken on an empty stomach AFTER motion sickness (severe nausea no vomiting) already started?

Within an hour: Meclizine works within the hour for most patients I treat in the ED. Some a little longer, some a little shorter. IF this is the cause of your motion sickness. There are many causes of vomiting in young adults and unless you in a car or on a roller coaster, motion sickness is probably not the diagnosis. Call your doctor and make an appointment. ...Read more
