I have been suffering from chronic nausea and vomiting for almost 6 months. Recently, had HIDA test and the ejection rate was just below 20% (but no pain). I also had an endoscopy, but nothing looked abnormal (aside from a little tissue damage from the constant vomiting). At work today, I got extremely dizzy, nauseous, started smelling things that weren't there (like a skunk and graham crackers), and vomited multiple times. I started feeling better after about 10-20 minutes but am still really dizzy and nauseous about 12 hours later.
Currently, I am taking Protonix in the am and pm for heartburn problems that I have had for about 3 years (Dr thinks that it was likely GURD related symptoms). Recently replaced Protonix with Dexilant in the pm.
Your persisting symptoms nausea and vomiting could indicate a viral gastroenteritis. The other causes could be jaundice if there is yellowish discoloration of skin, food poisoning if the symptoms occurred shortly after taking food, peptic ulcer disease and sometimes cholecystitis and pancreatitis.
Hope a urine analysis did not reveal an infection, as urinary tract infection can cause these symptoms. Discuss these options with your consulting doctor.
