I’ve been dealing with extreme nausea with severe vomiting and severe stomach pain for several months now. As a kid, I would just have extreme nausea and severe stomach pain when I was stressed, but the doctors always told me to just go home and take it easy, relax, and eventually I would feel better.
But for the past 2 years, and even more so since September 2012, I’ve been having the extreme nausea/severe vomiting/severe stomach pain every couple of weeks and at first I thought it was my gallbladder because the last few times I’ve just been vomiting bright green bile for 3 to 5 days at a time. I’ve been the ER twice for severe dehydration because of it and finally the 2nd time last night, once of the ER docs suggested that I might have CVS and to follow up with a specialist. I’ve been doing a little bit of research today and it seems like that’s what I have, but everything I’ve been reading says it’s more common children. I do have chronic migraines with auras almost daily for the past 4 years, I also have fibromyalgia and PKD (kidney disease).
Is CVS/Abdominal Migraines a common thing? Any advice, tips, comments would be appreciated, I’m not sure what I’m dealing with yet and I’m getting tired of being so sick all the time.
