User :   I'm not exactly sure whats going on. I had migranes really bad about 6 years ago and they never found anything wrong & it eventually went away. But about 2 months ago I started getting sick randomly - sometimes its just once a week sometimes its multiple days in a week. But when it happens, I wake up vomiting & I do it ALL day long. Sometimes its just for the day & other time it'll last a few days. I get horrible migraines with it & shakes really really bad. I went to kings island yesterday & the first roller coaster I rode I completely blacked out, my eyes rolled back in my head & i didn't remember the ride & then I was sick the rest of the day,just nauseated & as of right now I've still been nausous & vomiting
