Why do I vomit after eating?
« on: 22/10/2014 15:30:02 »
Clyde Botwinick  asked the Naked Scientists:
   I wonder if the following symptoms remind you of a possible cause. I am experiencing episodes that occur after eating out in restaurants: generally 4 or 5 hours after eating I start feeling a bit of nausea and then I vomit. I then get the most severe chills so bad that even after I lay under blankets also with an electric under blanket and with an electric heater going full blast I feel ice cold. I don't sweat. The total elapsed time of these episodes is generally 4 to 6 hours and then the chills go away and I'm fine after a night sleep. I live in Johannesburg and the latest episode occurred yesterday. I went 2 months without a problem and then an episode occurred after eating out. I have no pain and no fever with these episodes. My gastroenterologist is stumped and he thought the problem could be as unlikely as malaria? I do have acid reflux and take a 40mg pill of Nexiam daily.  



What do you think?
