Morning sickness in male (not married or pregnant)

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am a 18 year old male, and a week and a half ago I had a severe case of food poisoning which ended up in vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea. These symptoms continued for about a week and it was hard to eat solid foods and I went to the doctor. They proscribed me 4 pills of Zolfran to take. It helped the first day but I still vomited. After vomiting I felt better, and I started forcing myself to eat. Now I just get cases of morning sickness and sometimes they’re minor sometimes they’re more than minor. I’ve been searching up information about morning sickness in men but all it pops up is cases of pregnancy in woman which in turn causes nausea in men and women. Is there anyway to get rid of the morning sickness permanently? And if so how long would it take? Thank you in advance.

    It might be a good idea to keep a food diary, you may have an allergy or intolerance. For example cut out anything containing wheat for one week. If you are no different do the same with dairy the next, etc. Have you lost any weight or do you have any rashes on your skin? Look up the symptoms of cealiac disease, dairy intolerance or food allergies and see if there is something that looks familiar. If there is get a test done. 

    There are plenty of other things it could be that you may need an endoscopy, colonoscopy, ultrasound or CT for but you would have to see a specialist and explain the symptoms first and let them advise you.

      Do you understand what gastritis is, its imflammation of the lining of the stomach, or close enough.

      Your food for a few weeks needs to be really bland, what have you eaten that has made you not get well, I suspect you have gone back to what is a normal diet for you, that would be disasterous for an angry tum.

      You need to stick with NO COFFEE, NO CINNAMON, NO ONIONS, NO GARLIC, NO BEEF, NO COKE, nothing greasy.

      So what do I eat I hear you asking, try cornies with milk for breakfast, or rolled oats, (you can buy quik oats), 1 & 1/2 mins in microwave in plate done. Toast with eggs, stay away from the bacon for a few weeks.

      lunch, eggs, fish, salad, stay away from qreasy food.

      Dinner again chicken, with veges, rice dishes, but remember no spices or curry, or even onions, try rice pudding, you can make a saucepan version rice and milk, but you do have to stand over it and stir.

      How do I know this, I have a form of gastristis and have regular flares, I have another one today, ate some meatballs, I think they may have had a tiny bit of garlic, I bought them and forgot to ask the butcher, OHHH they were yummy, NOT GOOD for me, I am going to have two weeks or thereabouts now of angry tum again.

      This morning had plate of cornies, and toast, lunch will be a fish sandwich with salad, dinner tonight will be fish cakes, does have some onion, but I make sure I cook it thoroughly before using it, raw onion is a disaster for me, I use tuna fish, so not tooo bland, extra flavour comes from the parsley, lots.

    You may still be having the after effects of the food poisoning.  Give it another week and stick to bland foods which are not rich, spicy or fatty.  If no better, after this, see your doctor again.

    Hi Anthony go see ur doctor and get a prescription of promethazine liquid version it's awesome talk about killing the nausea it will guarantee you wont vomit after taking it. That's what the doctor gave me bc I woke up feeling sick every morning with all those same symptoms and it lasted for a month before I finally went to my doctor bc I couldn't take it anymore turns out I have developed some health issues that was causing the sickness dont wait like I did go see ur doctor. Best of luck to you.
