I must admit, I have the very same thing happen to me every morning! I wake up, and I am OK until I stand up...then I throw up bile. Once that's over with, I go on about my day.
I have a few serious health issues that require me to take 8 medications every night before bed, and I have just racked the throwing up to the medications sitting in my empty stomach every night. Does your wife take medication at night?
I have not asked my doctor about this, but would also like to know if anyone else has. I have had recent endoscopy/colonoscopy (for unrelated pelvic pain) with no significant findings, and there is no way I am pregnant either.
I am interested in what the other posters have to say about this...thanks for asking!
I certainly don't like throwing up every morning, but at least I have something to link it to...and I throw up very easily other times too, sometimes at just the thought of something, the sight of something. I have severe kidney disease, and major issues with blood pressure, so I am used to "side-effects" by now, and this is not the worst of them.
I applaud you for your diligence in trying to help your wife. I wish I had more information to offer you, but I only have my experience to go on. I know many people on the boards have much more experience, and I hope they will offer you some more helpful information.
I will be reading along, because I would like to learn too.
I am in the same situation. I have had 2 heart attacks and have 4 stints in my arteries but I have never had this situation before. I did go through depression last year and was hospitalized in a mental hospital for a while but I have worked through that situation. I have been throwing up every morning for the last 2 years straight, sometimes 4 or 5 times in the morning and then after that I am OK. There have been times where I have thrown up during the day but that has happened only a couple of times. I do not know what to do about it. I do have bad night sweats and I can only sleep and hour and a half at a time, so that means if I go to bed around 8:00PM I will wake up 7 times during the night. I just don't know what to do. I do think about ending my life just to get over this cycle I am in, I hate it.
I have been having the same problem recently. For about a month now, every morning i wake up feeling really nauseous. I walk around for a couple minutes and then throw up... usually bile or mucus like you said your wife does. I know im not pregnant but i would really love to find out why my body is doing this.
