My younger sister, 21, has been having some health issues for the past 1-2 months. She has been throwing up aprox. 3 times a week or so (usually in the morning) and feeling exahusted. She also had 4 periods last month (she is on birth control). She has gone to the women's clinic and had complete bloodwork done which came back all clear. They also did ultrasounds and ruled out pregnancy. The doc. said it has nothing to do with the pill she is on either... He said he basically has no clue what's wrong. This is really driving my sis crazy because she is not a puker- she hasen't thrown up since she was a kid. She is in good shape physically and is a vegetarian. She works 40 hours a week and is currently going to college also. She had mono this last fall, so that could possibly explain why she is feeling so icky/tired (she says her energy level has never completely recovered from the mono), but it wouldn't explain all the throwing up. Anyone have any ideas?

Thank you, I will mention that to her. I believe she also mentioned that she is peeing more frequently... would that be in line with gallbladders problems?

No but throwing up & possibly loose stools will. She NEEDS to see a Doctor...Not a GYN!

Thank you for the input... I will tell her to go back to the doc. I believe she actually went to her regular doctor first and was refered to the women's clinic.

Vomiting has MANY causes. If there's a gall bladder problem it's much more common to have right upper quadrant pain, frequently radiating to the right shoulder and NOT necessarily vomiting.

She needs to see her internist and perhaps a gastroenterologist.

there is a disease called cvs-cyclic vomiting syndrome

Here is a link so you can see what it is.
Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome - definition of Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome in the Medical dictionary - by the Free Online Medical Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

good luck!

Thank you all, I will pass on everything said here to Jessie. I can't recall the name of the pill she is on, I will ask. We live in a fairly small town and I have very little faith in the doctors here (from personal experience). "I don't know what it could be" or "There's nothing medically/physically wrong with you" are VERY common words to hear from the docs around here. (My SIL spent months in horrible pain, went through tests, hospital stays, saw specialists, and every doctor swore up and down that there was no physical problem that could possibly be giving her pain. Finally they discovered that she had 20+ cysts on each of her ovaries). So I think it will help if Jessie knows what tests/specialists she should ask for.
