my oldest daughter is a cheerleader. we just got back from a game and she has a migrane. She vomited green tonight though. Never done that one before. She had a stomach virus earlier this week. but was not vomiting with it just very nauseaus. Should I be alarmed to the green vomit. She had a blue poweraid earlier today and I was thinking that I just turned green mixed with stomach liquids
Green vomit: Poweraid is green. More likely is that she vomited some bile. The stomach is slightly larger than two fists placed side by side. Then food or liquid leaves the stomach is passes through a narrow channel that acts like a valve called the pylorus. About 2 inches from there is where the liver drains bile into the intestine. Bile is green. Your daughter likely had what is called “bilious vomit,” or vomited bile. Any vomiting that persists should be evaluated as patients can become dehydrated and their salts in their body (electrolytes) can get out of balance.
