Re: head injury with dry heaves
just what types of testing have you had done on your brain and the c spine area?any MRIs done with contrast?if not these really need to be done on you.these two areas would be the most likely to be casueing your symptoms,depending on just what could have been damaged.i know they will normally do only a CT scan when you are inthe ER for many reasons,its too risky to do an MRI so they stick with just CT til they no there is no actual risks in doing MRI.Have you seen a neuro doc at all?you could have some sort of cranial nerve damage,or something quite not right within the brain.it really does appear that "something' is triggering the vomiting center.if you could give a bit more info onany testing and anything they may have seen it would really help.getting copies of all testing reports and all records from that hosp stay and ER records wold really be a great idea just for your own personal use.these records would contain some really vital info on specific damage or what they felt was up at the time.i have used al of my records(i have many medical issues) at some point or another either for refference or to show new docs about my conditions so i don't have to sit there explaining things for like an hour.but you need to find out whats wrong so hopefully it can be fixed or trated.something is definitely not right.Marcia
