I get nauseous lot of nights but I hate, hate, hate puking. Actually I haven't puked for about six years, since I started taking the flu shot every year.

While we're on the subject - when I'm over the porcelein and waiting for it to happen there is one food I can think of that will always make me hurl instantly. The weird thing is its something I really like. Everyone has their favorite trigger I guess.

I am not a puker either. However, when my mouth becomes overloaded with saliva I know it's time to head for the can!
ugh!!!i know!!! and you can feel the gland in your jaws burning right??
i hate that feeling. that is the first sign for me too.

i used to get that so badly when having a BM, everytime the worst cramps would get the glands burning and then it was time to grap the little trash can.

Plech. i hate puking. But when I get that feeling in my tummy i'd rather just get it over with....The feeling like you're going to puke but not puking seems worse to me sometimes. I've been pukey the past few days, and hubby didn't understand why i was puking into a bucket instead of the toilet....Well, it's that, or i poop on the floor while puking onto the toilet! LOL. The joys.

i am one of those puke-phobics....do everything i can not to puke! i only reallly puke when i have really bad proximal constipation after a flare and i have been eating when i dont feel hungry....body was trying to tell me someting...so i eat someting and its like projectile rejection soon after! very quick and painless...but nevertheless awful

.....really hate sickness bugs tho, cos you never feel better and you just keep on puking even tho there is nothing left....crazy...i avoid it like the plague!

i have a friend tho who cant stand nausea....if she is just the tiniest bit nauseous she makes herself throw up to feel better and make the nausea go away, she said nausea is worse than the actual throwing up....i beg to differ....yuk...i will breathe my nausea away if it takes all day!

I don't mind puking if it makes me feel better! Seems when i have one of these episodes it's like everything is all squished and I need to make room. usually it comes out the other end though and I only sometimes throw up. The frustrating thing now is that I've thrown up HEAPS this time and I KNOW I'll need to poop before I can go to sleep but every time I go sit back on the toilet it stops! And every time I walk away the cramps start again! Usually it's all over in about 20 minutes. This one is taking a bit longer. I just want sleep!!!

Puking over with now and had a huge poop! Woohoo! I know I will feel better after all that, just waiting a bit longer to make sure it's settled before I snuggle into bed. Damn and I was all set for an early night and took a pill and everything

I LOVE how we can share this stuff on here!!!!

I ALWAYS feel like throwing up but I never actually do...I came to this realization the other night after telling my poor hubby who listens to me say like fifty times a day "I think I'm gonna throw up." I figure I should just stop worrying about going to the bathroom to throw up because it never actually happens! Just feels miserable....

I didnt read all the posts but this advice I can give you. I have gotten sick alot. One of the first things I would want to do is get that taste out of my mouth so I would brush my teath..... big no no. The acid from your stomach with the abrasiveness of the tooth paste and toothbrush will slowly eat away at your teeth. I found that out a little late (last year 2009). If you think you will be or have been sick in the past get baking soda and mix it with water to rinse your mouth. It neutralizes the acid and will help save your teeth. It may seem a little silly but 30 years of doing the wrong thing will take its toll on your smile.

I've never been sick with Crohns til 5 weeks ago! My God! I thought everything was gonna come up, my heart and lungs too! it was like a double canon, both ends, at the same time, 100 miles an hour! lay in it in the bathroom all night crying, my kids were so shocked! it was all over the walls, I can't exagerate enough!
and I ended up in A&E via ambulance cos I was blocked, and I didn't know!
It was the most frightening experience of my life

Every once in a while I get pretty blocked and have INTENSE pains for hours and hours and I feel like I'm going to puke. I know that the puke will come, and I know that I will feel better when it does, but I can't bring myself to induce it!
Lucky I always feel better eventually, but I'm scared for the day I don't un-clog on my own!

The only time I've puked was the last time I did prep for my colonoscopy. Sitting on the toilet with a gabage can in my lap...very pretty! Oh, and when I burst my sigmoid colon...tried to puke in hospital but there was nothing there. I think it was just a reaction to the inscrutiating pain. I never want to go through that again!

Thank you! I will definitely have to try the baking soda trick. I have had to have caps put on my teeth, as my front teeth are see-through now because of all the throwing up I have done over the years. I go through intense pain and saliva build-up before puking, and there really isn't anything I can do to stop it once the cycle has begun.

I was so bad when I was first diagnosed, that I would take a sip of water and throw it up 2 minutes later. I could keep absolutely nothing down, and my weight went from 130 lbs to 84 lbs. Surprising thing is, no medications would help... I was so hungry one night that when my brother brought home a "Fast Eddy's" hamburger (49 cent burger just doesn't sound appetizing most days), I just had to have one - I figured I was just going to throw up anyways, so I might as well have something to throw up! I managed to keep it down, and kept everything down after that. I slowly built my weight back up, and the medications started to help again, seeing as I could keep them down after that. Makes you wonder what was in that burger! LOL

Good health and best of luck.

I find that throwing up can sometimes provide temporary relief, but my system has said ENOUGH, and I only throw up when things are really bad now. In October and November, I was throwing up every day (from 3 - 20+ times/day). My chest hurt from all the heaving, and my teeth have moderate enamel damage, so the break from vomiting since then has been really helpful.

I used to puke so much that my mother was convinced that I had bulimia. I didn't just puke a little bit either. I threw up HARD. Last time I threw up I popped blood vessels in my eyes from retching so hard. It would come out of nowhere too. I lost my last job because I was vomiting so much. I would just go to work and then throw up. Fortunately, since I've changed my diet I haven't vomited in about three months.

I puked alot at the beginning, but I hate puking so now when I get the really bad nausea I go hug the toliet and try my best to will myself not to get sick. The nausea usually goes away within the hour, or right after a bm.

Been a while since I puked.

I know to clean my mouth right after I puked now, puke and burping can really mess up your gum. I couldn't eat for a week, my whole gum was in pain.

I puked today a little bit, by accident. I was in the bathroom washing my hands and did a huge burp as I had a funny feeling tummy and chunks flew! Lucky I was over the basin lol. When I first got crohns I used to puke a LOT but probably because I drank so many stomach eating energy drinks to keep me awake, I remember because they didn't always taste so bad, lol. Each time I have a big flare tho I tend to get a bit blocked up and my tummy can't drain into my intestines so I force puke, which sucks but helps the pain and nausea.

I know this is ironic, but I suffer from lots of nausea, but I rarely puke. I've never thrown up from my Crohn's, but I have from the stomach flu. I hate it so much, that I really have to be sick before I do it. My brother who also has CD doesn't get near as much nausea, but he throws-up more often than I do. I think he just wants to get rid of the feeling and quick. Ugh! I can't do that.

Whenever I puke with my crohn's its always on the toilet so leaking out of both ends (and usually the only place to puke at that point is into the bath!! EWWWWWW). It's the least fun thing ever expelling bodily fluids out of both ends at once!!

The pain makes me feel like I have to vomit/makes me vomit. Sometimes I feel nauseous and intense stomach pain that makes me feel like I need to vomit, when in actuality it's the other end that needs attending to. If I can get myself to go without vomiting then the urge to vomit will pass, but usually I'm so desperate to get the pain to stop I just vomit hoping it will "work."

My stomach swells up to the point where I look like I am 9 months pregnant after eating. The only way of easing all of the pain after all meals is to puke. So I puke everyday. I hate it, but nothing I can do, I have to or I suffer terribly
