My brother and law just admit again in er with the sudden onset of dizziness and non stop yellow water vomiting. This is happening since 3 years and same season like winter. Last time he got drip with anti vomiting drug and nebulizer. The blood test was normal and came out of hospital with the inhaler. So I just want to know why this happened every year Thanks

I had sudden onset of nausea, followed by severe,repeated vomiting and diarrhea, which lasted for approximately 12 hours. I also had chills/shaking, and general aches and pains. This began 48 hours ago, and although those symptoms stopped I still feel tired, queasy, and just not good. Is this a stomache virus or possible food poisoning, and when will I start to feel better?

Three days ago my cousin was fine but then a sudden onset of pain and vomiting has sent him to the ER. He is now in a children s hospital and the GI specialist they sent him can not find the cause of his problems. At this point besides pain and vomiting, his digestive tract has now slowed and he can no longer pass food or liquids. They discovered ketacidosis but he IS NOT diabetic. They ruled it out after tests. After many tests they can not find the reason his digestive tract has stopped. His liver and kidneys are fine. Yesterday he had finally gotten sleep and relief, even able to eat. But then last night he reverted back to vomiting up everything he ate. Now they have a central line in and started him on metoclopramide. If he is not diabetic what could cause ketoacidosis and his digestive tract to stop working with severe vomiting? Whatever it is, they can not find it on his tests!
