Hypermesis Graviderum- Excess Vomitting & Chest pain during pregnancy

Hi, my wife(30years, 160cm) is 5months pregnant suffering from Hypermesis Graviderum. Consulted several doctors in Delhi & Pune,India but did not get relief from excess vomitting and subsequent chest pain . As per Dr they have never experienced such kind of symptoms (15-20vomitings/day & chest pain, back pain ) Though she had ondesteron injection, drotin injection, Histec injection & drips time to time but did not get relief completely even a single day since her 3rd month. Pls advice what medicine can work as it is difficult to tolerate till 9months.Her father is a doctor and he has consulted with several gynecologists. We have conducted all tests (pathology, ECG , Sonography, etc) & everything is normal. She had faced such type of symptoms during our first child who is 5yrs old now but this time the severity is very high. Even injectable medicines does not work. As per the advice of some Dr. we had given her pantoprazole & domperidon combination to get relief from gastroenteritis or because of oesophagial regurgitation. Please advice if any other medicine can reduce her chest pain. Zakir, ,India

Homeopathic medicines work well for this condition - For persisting vomiting and gastritis she can have SYMPHORICARPUS RACEMOSUS 6c or 30c - 4 pills of 30 size globules every 4 hourly - Medicines should be allowed to dissolve in the tongue and not to be swallowed - This medicine is not hormonal and it do not have any side effects - i.e. safe to be used during pregnancy.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
The chest pain is probably due to high acidity. She needs to eat bland, soft, food at every 2 hourly intervals in small amounts. Let her lie down for sleep only 2 hours after food, till then she can lie on an incline of 45 degrees. Avoid drinking too much water. Let her take in sips. Give bananas to replenish the lost nutrients in vomiting. Continue Pantoprazole. If she is having loose stools and/or fever her gastroenteritis needs to be treated with proper antibiotics. Kindly get her treated accordingly.

I barely drank any alcohol about 4 hours ago (two beers and started drinking a little buy of vodka when I started to feel extremely nauseus), but I have been excessively vomiting for the past 3 hours. I am now experiencing chest pain and residual nausea. Have I been drugged? What could cause excessive vomiting when little alcohol has been consumed?

Hi. about a month ago me and my kids had gastroenteritis, stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting...ended up in the hospital dehydrated and after a week of symptoms we were fine. Now a month later the kids have it again fever, some vomiting but not constant, and a really stinky yellow diarrhea. Ther are eating fine and for most of the day they seem to be ok except when the cramps and diarrhea hits them.

Hello, I've had nausea for 1 week, everyday, and vomited 1 time, on the 1st day the nausea started. Temp runs around 96.8 (no fever), have a slight headache like motion sickness. I have difficulty sleeping, get very hot at night but no sweats, just very hot. Sometimes have chills in the evenings (with 96.8 temp). I have no energy, and very tired in the evenings. One day within the last week, had a strong pressure in the middle of my chest which lasted 10 minutes. (no abdominal pain and no cramping, but do have mild diarrhea daily.) Also have had more gas (burping) more than usual. Dec 20-Dec 30--had cold with flu like symptoms--cough, congestion, sinus, aches. This just ended around Jan 5. The nausea started Jan 10, but other symptoms started in mid-December. Thinking this could be Gastroenteritis?? But I have no Abdominal pain and no fever and no dizziness. But do feel dehydrated some days. thanks for your advice! (I'm white female, age 55, no periods since May 2011) Thanks so much!

I am recovering from celiacs and chronic gastritis and gastroenteritis. i also have a milk intolerance. it's been nearly 4 months of gluten free and dairy free diet now, and i'm slowly getting better, but i'm worried because i keep getting these bouts of low grade fever, maybe every month or so. i also suffer from anxiety as I went undiagnosed for a year. do you know why i keep getting the fever? is it normal?

the temperature during these bouts is between 37.2 to 37.5C and i feel tired and flu-like during them.

Thank you,
