I vomit or unable to drink water but am fine with drinking sodas or juices. Why?

Seek MD: Chronic nausea/vomit would require workup but more info needed eg drugs (esp opioids, psych meds), recreational drugs, other medical probs (eg diabetes). Urgent attention if blood, weight loss/dehydration, family history cancer, persistent. See if water temp makes difference. Suggest seeing gastroenterologist. ...Read more

IV hydration: It is essential that you do not get dehydrated. If you are unable to hydrate yourself orally, go to the emergency room for intravenous hydration. Your stomach must be irritated from the inflammation. ...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

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?

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

Food is making me sick/vomit. Began BRAT diet w/no help. Been going on for 8 days. Cleve Clinic appt in 1 week. PCP just says to drink water. Thoughts?

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

I have a powdery feeling at a place in my throat and when I drink water, I get burps and vomit coughs. It seems like mucus is stuck in my throat?

I have a powdery feeling at a place in my throat and when I drink water, I get burps and vomit coughs. It seems like mucus is stuck in my throat?

Throat: If you don't 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 girlfriend vomited 4 times after drinking over the course of 3 hours so far. I've been making her drink water, but it doesn't seem to be helping.??

My girlfriend vomited 4 times after drinking over the course of 3 hours so far. I've been making her drink water, but it doesn't 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

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.

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
