Has anyone ever thrown up this hard???



Recommended Posts

I know that those of use who have had a big drinking night in earlier years...and/or had kids...has encountered projectile vomiting.

Tonight, that isn't exactly what happened...but it scared me enough to make me feel I need to ask about it.

I had 3 oz's of shredded pork (have eaten past 2 days, no prob). This time I added about 8 small pieces of salad to it and had about 1 TBSP of dressing. (Have not had dressing really for a while, nor have I had pieces of salad). I knew after 2 bites...that all was not well with my pouch.

I've had plenty of foamies and what I call mini-vomiting sessions but nothing prepared me for this...turn away now as TMI is coming!! I threw up everything I had eaten...had intermittent foamies going on too...then it felt like pouch was making 1 more push to upchuck everything although there was hardly anything left. As I felt pouch start to clench/spasm to force whatever TINY thing that was left, my whole upper body starting from both shoulders and across my chest actually locked up and shook with extreme force of the last amount that was expelled from my pouch.

I have never ever ever had a vomiting episode make me feel like my arms were being pulled from my sockets. I almost felt like it was a hard core seizing...I could feel an overall upper body spasm and truth be told, especially in the shoulder and chest area, I felt so much stunning pain, that I was literally afraid as much as my upper body was seized tightly...that I may break something.

I know this has to sound completely NUTS! The pain was so bad I could feel my vision starting to dim. I don't know if my esophagus spasmed at the same time as the pouch but whatever it was...it scared me even more than the days I've mentioned in other posts where I've been in so much pain I lay in bed day and night curled in a fetal position..crying off and on.

I'm praying someone has some idea of what I'm talking about.

Gosh no idea, but how miserably scary!!!

Be sure to go back a stage for the next couple of days to allow your body to heal. No more pulled pork or salad for a couple of weeks. Ok? ((hugs))

Yeah....similar and then I would burst blood vessels all over the sides of my face and chin. Now I have learned what to eat, how much, how to chew it, etc...but it was a huge learning process for me.

take it easy - shakes, soft foods, etc for a few days.

Glad you mentioned that...when I finally stood up and looked in the mirror, my face looked..reddish-purple...I was actually worried I had burst some blood vessels. I am SO relieved someone else has gone through this!!!!!!!!!

I've thrown up so hard it shot out of my nose as well as my mouth (but never out of my ears!). 😲😀
