I try for sometimes hours but the food is just stuck there and won't go down. After hours I just can't take it anymore. I try so hard not to, but these days just isn't working

I have not barfed since being diagnosed with CD. Any type of nausea makes me feel like sitting on the toilet.
Diagnosed July 2, 2009 Crohn's Colitis

Colon removed September 26, 2011.
Pathology showed UC instead of Crohn's.

I have arthritis that is very similar to RA, but not RA because I had UC.

Autoimmune related itch.

Meds: 15 mg/week Methotrexate for RA
Cetirizine for the itch

I have a stricture that is causing a blockage right now...I am puking nearly every day. Not just puking, but sudden intense pain, then my mouth fills up with the hot saliva. I have about 30 seconds after that before I projectile vomit! Whatever can't get past my obstruction comes back up with a lot of force. Happened last night while I was on the toilet with D, I almost didn't grab the trash can fast enough!

Here's a giant hug for both Margie and SarahAnne! I can't imagine throwing-up on a daily basis. Ugh! I hate it with a passion. I do understand that is can go with the Crohn's territory though. My dad's father (my grandpa) when through a long stretch in which he would throw-up almost every day from his Crohn's. That stopped after his colectomy.

I'm a big chicken when it comes to puking. Even when I was pregnant, I fought the urge. Scott told me that it was stupid because I'd probably feel better.
Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 2005

Pentasa 2x500mg (4 times a day)

I'm not a big puker. I have a phobia of vomit so I hold it back. I feel sick to my stomach a lot but can't get passed that fear in my mind to let it happen, even though I know I would feel better.

Unfortunately I'm a HUGE vomiter! I've thrown up almost every day for the last year or so. It's horrible, I'm sure people think I'm bulimic but I won't not eat! I love food and sometimes it's nice to taste it a second time round lol. It happens mostly when I'm on loo or just after dinner, but sometimes I'll have eaten like hours and hours ago and my tummy is just still full, like it can't be bothered to digest so just comes up like I'm regurgitating. I must admit, if it's like this before bed I do sometimes give it a helping hand, terrible I know- but I'd be awake for hours if not.

Yes, I actually just vomited again about 5 minutes ago. Twice so far in the last hour. My flare has went "full-blown" in the last few days, I've been flaring for three weeks. I'm thinking perhaps I have a blockage as there's new lower right back pain that is getting progressively worse as the night goes on. I forced myself to take some pain meds but the meds are not alleving any of the pain; then again, that could be because I've vomited them up. Generally, vomiting does not bother me, before i went on the Humira, at my worst, I was vomiting 15+ times a day.(Linda Blair in the Exorcist didn't have a thing on me I got used to it.
I'm making myself sip water right now in an attempt to stay hydrated even though I know it will be coming back up. a side note...
I have noticed that I will vomit if I get overheated, or if I come home & the house is "hot" or i go somewhere with an elevated room temperature I will instantly get nauseous & this increases even more if I'm flaring, as in extreme sensitivity to heat.

I puke more then I have bm's. And its horrible. Anything from water to soup. Any obstruction will make you sick. Usually my flares are at night so if I just eat and go right to bed I kinda skip the worst flare of the day :-) tehehe

During my worst flare in 2011 I was throwing my guts up constantly, however ever since my bowel resections I haven't thrown up at all.
