My son is 19 yrs old. Last night he was up all night vomitting. Everytime he eats his stomach gets upset and he gets nauseated. This happens in tha a.m. and the p.m. I am very concerned. Can you help me.
Viral gastroenteritis would be the most common causes of acute vomitting. More chronic causes can include pancreatitis, gallbladder disease, or anatomical abnormalities.
If the vomiting does not subside, an upper GI series can be considered to look for a blockage or narrowing (i.e. pyloric stenosis), as well as an ultrasound to evaluate the gallbladder. Blood tests to evaluate the pancreas can also be considered.
