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.
Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Aashish Raghu's  Response
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?

4 year old son has the following symptoms.: abdominal distention, diarrhea, and vomiting for 1 week. Vomiting sunsided and abdominal distention persists, regular stool and stomach pain ( upper stomach- just below the rib cage in the middle). He was put on Zofran for nausea, 3 week course of Clarithro and Amoxicillin since H pylori cam back positive - done by pediatrician. Meanwhile the gastroenterologist did EGD post abx therapy said biopsy is normal and stomach looks fine and that his symptoms should resolve. HEr belief is that the nausea and abdominal pain is a result of a bad gastroenteritis. It has now been 6 weeks and the diarrhea returned for 24 hours with vomiting for 12 hours. HE now continues with the stomach pain which comes and goes and what he describes as his stomach rumbling for food. He has been on Prevacid for 5 weeks. Upper GI with follow thru is normal. IS there something else wrong?? PEdiatrician blood test for lactose and gluten sensitivity were negative. What could be the cause of this chronic stomach pain with nausea?

I have lower abdominal pain and bloody stool. The symptoms started over a week ago when on a ski trip and eating food outside of my normal diet(from a sketchy little restaurant). I went to a doctor and it was diagnosed as enteritis, and I was given a shot(I assume it was penicillin), and medicine to take with meals. The medicine has run out and the symptoms are still present. I am an English teacher in South Korea and so I have some difficulties communicating with my doctor and cultural differences in terms of medical practices. I have hypothryoidism and probably celiac disease (any gluten intake causes diarrhea, so I avoid gluten). I m a 23 year old male.

HI,my 8 year old son was diagnosed with gastroenteritis from 25th of January he has been experiencing abdominal cramps shivers and diarrhea up until today. He has been given Gatorade water soup rice and other non greasy foods and yet this continues even though the stool is not as soft be he still goes to the bathroom frequently. He also passes gas a lot. Could this be more than Gastroenteritis?

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. I am starting to wonder if this is something else like a parasit or something at their school or diet...not really sure but it worries me they are missing too many ddyas of school... Thsanks
