Unhappy I need help from members !! :(

So..

When I started my new job as a cashier/barista about 8 weeks ago I threw up before work and the next time I worked I threw up twice at work. It was a 6:30 am shift and that early in the morning I am a little nauseas anyways so I considered it my new birth control and disregarded it..

A couple weeks later it happened again, only this time I got to work and drank orange juice & coffee on an empty stomach and threw up 5 times! So I figured it was too acidic and started taking Prilosec at night before work and eating yogurt or bread or eggs to prevent too much acid..

Next time I worked... I threw up again! Only this time it was around 1pm and I had been at work since 6:30 as usual.

My stomach feels full and like indegestion and it cramps and I feel a bit of relief if I hunch over forward.. But when I stand up straight the nausea hits and my mouth waters and I immediately have to run and vomit.

I feel better immediately after vomiting for a little bit until the next urge hits me.
This cycle continues until I am home from work -- and I never throw up at home after work.

The Prilosec doesn't do anything hardly since its not a burn but a full, regurgitating feeling that eventually turns to the cramping. It's not on either side, but directly in the middle. I don't eat a lot anyways so I'm not Overeating.

I burp and get the hiccups but don't belch or get gassy.
I'm not constipated and I quit drinking coffee and I eat healthy because I'm always dieting.

It's like my food doesn't digest at work. Even sipping water will push me to vomit.

Is happened 6 different days now and not in a row as I only work once or twice a week.

What are some possibilities? I can't find anything!! please help

I've ruled out gallbladder as I can eat fatty foods without getting sick. I am a naturally anxious and tense person, but this throwing up has never been an issue.

Re: I need help from members !! :(

hi, just typed a long reply and lost it! daggone it! my dr. told me to prilosec otc twice a day. don't let your tummy get empty. no tomato, onions, peppers, you know the deal. keep crackers w/ you. check your tongue and see if its orange/yellow tint that's a sign of acid. no coffee, ginger tea is best. I take zofran (prescription) for nausea. Plus if you can get a script for lorazapam that will help w/ the nausea believe it or not it helps the stomach to stop cramping/convulsing to vomit. I wear those wrist bands folks get for motion sickness you get from drug store, sometimes they have ginger gum there too, that helps fast. good luck, cj

There you go... you do have gastric problems from your lifestyle. Raw salad can be hard to digest..

Cut out the coffee and OJ, and stick to the Prilosec. Just because you take a PPI, doesn't mean you can still just eat what you want. You still have to manage your diet. If the Prilosec doesn't work, try Prevacid or Nexium.
