OK. I am frustrated. I have been vomiting on average 3-4 times a month over the past year. Before that I would vomit a few times in a month but there could be a gap of 2 or 3 months between vomiting episodes and now there is no gap. It is consistent, every week or 2. Went to GP who told me to to keep a food and activity diary. She cannot see a pattern and now thinks I have Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome. have had problems with my stomach in past, peptic ulcers, gastritis, duodenitis, oesphaghitis, hiatus hernia which are all either treated or well controlled with omeprazole. I had an upper GI endoscopy 2 years which just showed a lot of inflammation.She says my symptoms do not point towards any of these problems recurring as it was burning pain and indigestion that I had then. Anyway she has referred me to a gastroenterologist but I probably won't get an a appointment for several months due to our health care system. Has anybody been diagnosed with this? Or even aware of it? I am SO sick of all this (pardon the pun ?) I am thinking that she should just send me for another endoscopy at least, just to rule out stuff. Although I know if there was anything sinister going on I would know about it by now. She thinks this is stress related. I wonder if I didn't have a mental illness would she be so quick to suggest my nausea and vomiting is stress related......sigh.... Quite honestly there have been times when I was was under severe and prolonged stress and I didn't vomit. And yesterday was a great day. My brother was home and we had a lot of fun catching up and I played word games with my mum as she wasn't working. We all had a lovely dinner together. I was happy and relaxed, went to bed at about 9pm and was enjoying a movie when suddenly I was hit with the all too familiar nausea, followed by vomiting. Doesn't add up. Would love to hear if anyone else has experienced this or can shed some light on the whole thing or just has ideas about what I should do. Thanks so much in advance!!!
