Vomiting - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

What is Vomiting?

When food is thrown out of the stomach involuntarily or voluntarily through the mouth it is called vomiting. Vomiting happens for a wide variety of reasons like – motion sickness/ sea sickness, first trimester of pregnancy, emotional stress, gall bladder disease, infections, heart attack, overeating, brain tumour, cancers, ulcers, bulimia, and ingestion of toxins or excess alcohol.

Vomiting can be different at different ages.

Children suffer from vomiting due to viral infections, milk allergy, overeating, feeding, coughing, blocked intestines or illness which has high fever. In infants vomiting is caused due to blocked intestines. Intestinal blockage may be caused due to tumours, hernia or gallstones.

In adults is very rare. Vomiting may be due to pregnancy, excessive alcohol consumption, ulcer, food poisoning, bulimia, or food poisoning. There may be some underlying causes is vomiting is followed by headache or fever.

Some diseases like Crohn’s syndrome or irritable bowel syndrome can also cause vomiting. Crohn’s syndrome is an autoimmune disease when the body attacks healthy gut tissues of the stomach. Irritable bowel syndrome is when parts of the gut start to overreact. Bulimia is a disorder that causes forced vomiting when a person is anxious about his body image.

Some diseases like Crohn’s syndrome or irritable bowel syndrome can also cause vomiting. Crohn’s syndrome is an autoimmune disease when the body attacks healthy gut tissues of the stomach. Irritable bowel syndrome is when parts of the gut start to overreact. Bulimia is a disorder that causes forced vomiting when a person is anxious about his body image.

Vomiting may be a symptom of serious health issues like brain tumour, migraine attacks, appendicitis, concussion in the head, meningitis.

Hyperemesis gravidarum is a condition suffered during pregnancy, when the mother has recurring vomiting. This is a grave condition when the mother loses lots of fluids and minerals. This may endanger the life of both mother and child.

Excessive vomiting can result in tearing up of the oesophagus. This condition is called Mallory-Weiss tear and the condition is called Boerhaave's syndrome. It is a medical emergency.

Self treatment of vomiting is possible by controlling some factors that cause it. Avoiding excessive alcohol consumption and medications that cause vomiting can give relief. Drinking large amounts of fluids and avoiding solid foods till vomiting subsides also helps. Plenty of rest is required for the person to recover.

A person who has vomiting can consult a doctor to overcome the condition. Medications like Phenergran, Benadryl and Tigan can overcome the condition.

RIsks :

The main risk in vomiting is dehydration. When children have vomiting, they cannot express dehydration symptoms, so checking the symptoms like sunken eyes, dry lips and mouth can enable parents to understand that the child is dehydrated. Oral electrolytes can overcome dehydration. In adults, drinking plenty of fluids and rest can overcome dehydration. In infants the parents should check for symptoms like dry diapers to understand that the baby is dehydrated and give proper fluids.

UTI In Children - Understanding The Ways It Can Be Treated!

UTI stands for urinary tract infections. In children a urinary tract infection (UTI) is a very common condition caused by bacteria. Bacteria that enter the urethra are flushed out through urination. But, when bacteria aren’t excluded out of the urethra, they may grow in the urinary tract and cause infections. The Survey state that up to 8% of girls and 2% of boys will get a UTI at an early age.

All About Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a type of blood cancer similar to lymphoma and leukemia. Normally, plasma cells make antibodies which are responsible for fighting off infectious diseases. With multiple myeloma, however, they release too much of a protein known as immunoglobulin. Due to the excess buildup of protein in the body, organ damage occurs. Multiple myeloma cannot be cured, it can only have its progression slowed down. Here is everything you need to know about multiple myeloma:

Just like with other forms of cancer, the exact cause of multiple myeloma is not known. However, there are several risk factors which are responsible for increasing your chances of suffering from multiple myeloma.

Risk Factors:

  1. Age: Age poses as one of the most important risk factors. Being over 65 increases your chances of getting multiple myeloma, according to studies.
  2. Race: African-Americans are more likely to get multiple myeloma compared to other races.
  3. Genetics: Multiple myeloma is more likely to happen if a family member has it as well.
  4. Other Diseases: Solitary plasmacytoma, MGUS and other plasma related diseases make you more likely to develop multiple myeloma.



Your doctor may test you for multiple myeloma if a blood test reveals:

  1. Too much calcium in your blood (hypercalcemia)
  2. Anemia 
  3. Kidney problems
  4. High protein levels in your blood combined with a low albumin level (globulin gap)


There is no cure for multiple myeloma; however with good treatment you can resume normal activities. Here are the treatment options-

  1. Biological therapy: These are medications given in pill form which enhance the body's immune system; so that it can fight off myeloma cells.
  2. Targeted therapy: Targeted therapy is when cancerous cells are killed by targeting the abnormalities within them. These are given through a vein in your arm.
  3. ChemotherapyChemotherapy kills all the cells which are growing at a rapid rate. These drugs can be given through injection or orally.
  4. Corticosteroids: Corticosteroids are medicines which regulate the immune system by controlling the inflammation in the body. Corticosteroids can be taken in pill form or even through injections.
  5. Stem Cells Transplant: An autologous stem cell transplant is recommended for all eligible and suitable patients of multiple myeloma under 65 yrs of age, who show a good response to initial therapy, as it has been proven to improve survival. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Vomiting in Pregnancy - Is It More Than Just Morning Sickness?

Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is an extreme type of morning sickness. It is a pregnancy related queasiness and additionally painful at times. It can stop proper intake of food and other nourishments in your system which would affect the growing baby within, as well. Affecting around one to three percent of ladies, HG can lead to weight reduction, lack of healthy food intake and dehydration. In extreme cases, it can lead to unnatural birth cycle and, it can at times, be lethal.
Certain reasons can expand a woman’s odds of having serious morning sickness during pregnancy. Notwithstanding, having a family history of the condition, the following can put a woman at risk:

  1. The conceiving amount (twins, triplets, and so on.)
  2. History of motion sickness in general
  3. A headache or migraines with nausea

The queasiness or nausea can be so extreme at times that it can affect both, the mother as well as the baby. The powerlessness to not being able to eat the proper nourishment makes it difficult for the woman to meet her health and nutrient needs. Subsequently, she may get weaker. Furthermore, lost liquids, combined with the loss of stomach acid that happens during pregnancy, can bring about the lack of hydration and cause a complicated pregnancy.

In case a woman does not get treatment, it can bring about numerous complexities, including organ failure and the untimely birth of the infant. It is critical to talk to the specialist if a pregnant woman has any of the following indications:

  1. Sickness that continues throughout the day, making it difficult to eat or drink
  2. Vomiting that happens three to four times each day or losing one’s appetite
  3. Vomit that has blood or dashes of blood in it
  4. Weight reduction
  5. Black out or unsteadiness
  6. Diminished urine
  7. Fast heart rate
  8. Continuous migraine
  9. Parched mouth
  10. Extreme weakness

Medications that are normally used for morning sickness, for example, eating dry saltines in the morning might be suggested for women with extreme morning sickness. Treatments for this condition may include:

  1. A brief time of not eating by mouth to rest the gastrointestinal framework
  2. Intravenous (IV) liquids
  3. Vitamin and nourishing supplements

In case it is extreme, the pregnant lady might get a prescription to stop the vomiting, either by mouth or through an IV. The specialist may suggest eating foods with ginger or taking vitamin B6 supplements to mitigate sickness. The following can likewise offer assistance:

  1. Following a bland diet
  2. Eating regular little meals
  3. Drinking a lot of liquids when not feeling nauseous
  4. Staying away from hot and greasy foods
  5. Eating high-protein snacks
  6. Staying away from tactile boosts that can act as triggers

Therefore, morning sickness or vomiting is not always to be taken lightly during pregnancy. One should always consult a specialist when going through the same in an extreme way.

World Brain Tumor Day - 6 Tips To Help You Prevent Yourself Against It!

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, Fellow In Pain Management, DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Navi Mumbai
World Brain Tumor Day - 6 Tips To Help You Prevent Yourself Against It!

June is known as the Brain Tumour Month worldwide. It’s worthwhile to raise public awareness and educate people about brain tumour, a disease which, though is rare is but can be really deadly. More than 500 new cases are diagnosed with brain tumour every day worldwide. The number of patients with secondary tumours are even higher than 500. However, it is common across all ages.  A primary brain tumour is a tumour that begins in the brain. It can be either malignant, which means it contains cancer cells or benign i.e. does not contain cancer cells. A secondary or metastatic brain tumour is usually cancerous. It starts elsewhere in the body and sends cancerous cells which grow in the brain.

Here are a few facts that each one of us should know about this dangerous disease

  1. Brain tumours can occur at any age.
  2. We don’t know what causes brain tumors. Family history and high dose radiation like X-rays increases your risk.
  3. Doctors group brain tumors by grade which means the way the brain cells look under a microscope. A higher grade number means the cells appear more abnormal and the more aggressively the tumour usually behaves.
  4. Brain tumors are graded as grade I, grade II, or grade III, or grade IV.

The symptoms of brain tumour depend on the size, type, and location of the brain tumour. Some common symptoms which should not be ignored are-

  1. Headaches
  2. Seizures
  3. Problems with vision
  4. Vomiting
  5. Mental and personality changes
  6. Balance problems and trouble walking
  7. Problems in speaking

Brain tumours are diagnosed by the doctor based on the medical history and physical examination along with a slew of specialized tests of the brain and nervous system.


  1. Surgery
  2. Radiation therapy
  3. Chemotherapy
  4. Anti-seizure medicines
  5. Steroids
  6. Ventricular peritoneal shunt
  7. Combination of treatments

How can you safeguard yourself?
The primary tool to prevent brain tumours is by controlling your lifestyle. This means eating healthy, exercising, avoiding known carcinogens in your environment, and reducing stress.

  1. Sleep: Sleep is a friend for brain health. An adequate amount of rest with eyes shut keeps your brain health.
  2. Frankincense oil: Along with yoga, meditation, and breathing exercises to reduce stress, inhaling frankincense oil can help alleviate inflammation in the brain.
  3. Anti cancer diet: Consuming a diet rich in cancer-fighting nutrients like antioxidants is critical in preventing brain tumors.
  4. Ketogenic diet: A ketogenic diet is a high protein diet. It reduces oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain which is associated with brain tumours. It also shuts down the nutrient supply to tumors.
  5. Calorie restriction: Dietary restriction, especially fasting has anti-carcinogenic properties just as the ketogenic diet.
  6. Limit exposure to mobile phones: Cell phones use increases risk for brain tumours. So restriction prevents these tumours. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurologist.

Caring For a Premature Baby - Things To Remember!

MD- Paediatrics & Neonatology, MBBS
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Caring For a Premature Baby - Things To Remember!

Babies are fragile and need special care. In case of babies that are born prematurely, the amount of attention needed increases many fold and parents need to be extra careful and attentive. A baby born before 37 weeks of pregnancy is said to be a premature baby. The earlier the baby is born, the higher the risk of complications.

Most premature babies spend the first few days after birth in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). This is because they may have trouble breathing and may need help maintaining body heat. Though you may feel helpless watching your baby, it is important to spend time with your baby while he or she is in the NICU. Talk to the baby and touch him or her. As soon as your doctor allows, carry your baby while allowing him or her to have maximum skin to skin contact.

It is important to breastfeed a premature baby. Breast milk is the richest source of nutrition for your baby and is easy to digest. It is also rich in antibodies that help boost a bay’s immunity and protect them against a number of infections. If you cannot feed your baby directly, pump your breast milk and store it in sterilised bottles to be given to the baby. Premature babies can get critically ill very fast. To prevent this from happening, it is important to build a good rapport with your baby’s doctors and keep a close eye on your baby. Maintaining a journal can help you recognise changes in your baby’s development. Watch out for subtle signs that your baby could be falling ill. Some of these signs are:

  1. A distended abdomen
  2. Dry the diapers frequently
  3. Frequent vomiting
  4. Blood in the stool
  5. Temperature instability
  6. Lethargy and unresponsiveness
  7. Change in breathing

In some cases, the mother may be discharged before the baby. This may seem very difficult, but does not need to limit your time with your baby. Caring for a premature baby is tough and hence use the time away to rest and recuperate. Remember that your baby is in safe hands and do not let yourself get too stressed.

Your baby will be ready to come home once he or she can breathe on their own and is able to maintain a steady body temperature. Your doctor may also wait until the baby can be breastfed and begins gaining weight before discharging him or her. Once the baby is home, do not attempt to be the sole caregiver but involve your family in building a team of caregivers. This will keep you from getting burnt out and will ensure that your baby is constantly monitored. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

I take 1 mg lorazepam every morning and 10 mg of cipralex every night. I did’t take the two for a few days and the other day I tried a half bar of ecstasy (I know it’s bad and I’m not doing it again. So please no comments about my previous actions.) And I felt very anxious after taking it and I relaxed afterward and the feelings started to go away (very slight feeling and it was a lower strength as I was told). Then in the morning (yesterday) I had a normal bowel movement and felt a bit hungry because I did’t eat several hours before taking it and then in the afternoon I ate stew and bread and started to get anxious again thinking I was going to vomit so I stopped eating because of it. I did’t end up vomiting, I got very anxious.) now today I took my 1 mg lorazepam so it can help with my anxiety and I then ate lunch and about a half hour later I needed to use the bathroom and I saw that it was a bit watery and some solid pieces inside (bit darker). Is this because of the ecstasy?

Dear user, Nervousness or Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Sometimes high hormones of emergency pills give rise to vomitinf, sometimes it could be other reasons like gastritis. After taking high hormonal emergency pill one gets withdrawal bleeding 5 to 10 days later, and then new cycle starts. If required later may do pregnancy test or meet Gynecologist. If vomiting is more now, meet gynecologist now.

After having Diane 35 for 6 days I continuously felt nauseous and even I vomited so many times until the tablet came out as vomit. I used to feel bloated and weak. I haven't had Diane 35 for 5 days after that. What should I do? Should I continue having that or stop it? I vomit whenever I have that tablet. I was having this tablet for dysmenorrhea. Now I am very much scared that on my upcoming period I'll be dead in pain. Help me please.

After having unprotected sex on 17th aug my gf ate unwanted 72 within 24 hrs. For the past week she has a headache & vomiting. We went to a local doctor for this reason but mentioned him only about the headache & vomiting. We didn't mention him about the unwanted 72 pill that she took. So the doctor prescribed that she has migraine. Is this really due to migraine or side effects of the pill? It has been 12 days she hasn't got her periods. Today, 29th aug she took a urine pregnancy test but it showed negative. When is she going to get her periods. & Should she be allowed to take the medicines prescribed for migraine?

" Is this really due to migraine or side effects of the pill" could be any. After taking high hormonal emergency pill like unwamted 72 one gets withdrawal bleeding 5 to 10 days later, and then new cycle starts. If these days have passed as well as period is missed then repeat pregnancy test after couple of days. If required meet gynecologist.

Nausea and vomiting or Hyperemesis Gravidarum in Pregnancy
Hi, I am Dr Tripti Raheja. I am working as consultant obstetrics and Gynaecology in Max Hospital Pitampura.

This video will provide information regarding nausea and vomiting of pregnancy and hyperemesis gravidarum which is a severe form of this condition.

Nausea and vomiting during pregnancy are a very common symptom of pregnancy. Most pregnant women experience it to some degree. Usually it starts very early in pregnancy around 5 to 7 weeks of pregnancy. It settles down by 12 to 14 weeks of pregnancy. In some women it may continue till 20 weeks of pregnancy and occasionally may last until the end of pregnancy. Usually it is most severe in the morning, so, that is why it is called as morning sickness. Though it can happen at any time, day or night. It is more severe if you are carrying more than one baby.

Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy can become so serious sometimes. It can lead to significant weight loss and dehydration. Features of dehydration are feeling very thirsty, feeling drowsy feeling and or change of colour of urine from bright yellow to dark yellow. This condition is called hyperemesis gravidarum. Women with hyperemesis gravidarum may require and should go to hospital. There is no evidence that it can cause any harm to your baby rather if you have vomiting during your pregnancy then there is a less chance of miscarriage. However, in some women who have hyperemesis gravidarum or who have severe vomiting persistently for a long time may have baby there that are lower than expected birth rate.

You can deal with nausea and vomiting of pregnancy by simply doing;

Diet changes, proper diet is necessary in order to overcome this problem.
You should take small frequent meals at regular interval.
You should increase carbohydrate intake your diet and decrease the intake of food.
You should avoid food or smell that can Trigger your symptoms.
You can take medicines also with the help of your doctor. These medicines are safe during pregnancy.
In some cases where the vomiting is very severe, persistent leading to dehydration or leading to normality in the blood test patient may require admission to the hospital and treatment by IV Fluids.

If you want to consult me for that you can connect me with Lybrate. You can book an online consultation, you can check, you can do video call or you can fix up an appointment with my clinic person.

Migraine and Headache
Hello friends. I am Dr Sandeep Madaan. I am M.D. in Ayurveda from the University of Rajasthan. Now I have been practising Ayurveda in Delhi from last more than 14 years. Today we will talk about Migraine.

Migraine and migraine headaches are very common. The commonly affected people are middle age women in the age of 30s or 40s. It is more prevalant in the families which means that the ladies affected with this problem, pass the disease to the next generation. This disease is characterised by the headcahe. It may be one sided or both sided, but it is always episodic that means it comes in episodes like after few days, few weeks, few months. It is always associated with the diseases such as Nausea, vomiting, sleep disorder. The person find it very difficult to concentrate any needs, good sleep and often vomits and find relief in the headache.

These days many people in long term consume analgesics and many other chemical based medicines. But this is not a solution for Migraine. Ayurveda can be very effective and without side effect medicines or the supplements which are proven to be very effective in the long term.

Also, there is a special therapy called Nasya therapy in which we give special oil drops in the nose for sometime, for example- for a week or two weeks, and patient find it very effective for managing the migraine. Basically the person find that the severity of the headache decrease and the symptoms like Nausea, vomiting, lack of sleep etc. these slowly dimished. It takes around 2-3 months for the response of the therapies. But it is really very effective without any untowards side effects.

If you want to consult, you can consult me through Lybrate.

Thank you very much.

Hi, I am Dr Monty Talwar. I am practising homeopathy since last 20 years. Presntly I am practising in Gurgaon. Today, let us discuss about Gallstones.

Gallstones is the formation of stones in the gall bladder. These gallstones can be either Cholestrol stones or Bilirubin stones.

The cholestrol stones appear yellowish or whitish in colour. The bilirubin stones appear blackish in colour. Sometimes there is a combination of these two stones. THere may be either single stones or multiple stones. The patient may complain of moderate to severe pain in abdomen, nausea, vomiting, lot of gas, fever.

Now the causes can be dietary. If the patient is taking very less water or fluid. Diet which is rich in carbohydrates. THe diet which is rich in oily fatty food like ghee, oil, cheese, byutter. and again lack of exercise

Other causes can be Obesity, constipation, liver disease, diabetes or family history of gallstones, pregnancy.

Earlier, gallstones were most commonly found in women around 40 years of age. BUt these days we see lot of younger adults facing problem of gallstones. So, the treatment includes;

Advising a proper diet to the patient.
More intake of water (atleast 10-12 glasses of water everyday).
Reduce carbohydrates in diet
Reduce the intake of oily, fatty food like ghee, butter, oil and cheese.
Regular exercise is advised to the patient.
In homeopathy, we give acute medicines when the patients come with the acute totality or having lot of pain Nausea, vomiting, acute fever. We give acute medicines to relieve the patient from the pain. Once the pain is settled, we give constitutional medicine to the patient. These constitutional medicines are deep acting medicines. THey help to stimulate the immune system of the patient.

The constitutional medicines are given on the basis of the nature temperament of the pateint, physcial generalities whether he is comfortable in hot weather or cold weather. How much he sweats, his urination, desire in food, his nature, temperament. All these things make up this constitutional make up. These medicines have to be given for the long time, liek 6 months to 1 year so that the stoens can dissolve. In this way we approach a case with gallstones.

If you have any query regarding gallstones or any other complain, you can consult me online through Lybrate or visit my clinic which is in Sohna Road.

Thank you.
