Night Vomiting??

Just wondering if anyone has experienced this....I've been vomiting a lot at night recently. It's very bizarre. I will go to bed feeling just fine and a few hours later I will wake up feeling soooo nauseous! There is no fighting it. I bolt out of bed and run to the bathroom, spending the next minute or two dry heaving. Then it passes and I feel great...completely fine! I go back to bed and a few hours later same thing....

Any theories on what may be causing this? I never feel ill in any way. It has happened during the day a few times too. Not eating anything new that I haven't been eating for years...😟

I do have some bleeding marginal ulcers and the only thing I can think of is maybe my stomach has been empty too long?? I don't know, it's very strange...

It could also be acid reflux I use to wake in the middle of the night and throw up because of acid in my stomach causing reflux.

Very strange, and no doubt unsettling.  I'd get in to see your family Dr. as soon as you're able.  Better to have it checked out.  

Take care -

Considering all of the issues you've had recently, I would be contacting both my doctor and the surgeon who did your most recent surgery.

It's odd you posted this as the exact same thing happened to me 2 nights ago.  I rolled onto my back and within 30 seconds, I was racing for the bathroom.  There was nothing in my system to bring back up, but had a few moments of oh-so-enjoyable dry heaving.  Afterwards I was fine. (Confused, but fine).  It hasn't happened again.

Sorry I'm no help, but it's nice to know it happened to someone else, too!

Definitely contact your Dr and/or clinic.  It could be to deal with acid.  One thing that can be done is to raise the head of the bed up a bit so that you are not laying flat (or put a bunch of pillows behind you).  It may help the acid to not travel as high.

Hope you can get some relief soon.
