Vomiting of bile after eating
Greenish-yellow vomit indicates evidence of bile vomiting.
Bile is a special liquid necessary for the normal process of digestion of food and contributes to the absorption of fats. Normally, the contents of the stomach enter the small intestine, where it mixes with bile, the pyloric valve prevents the reverse movement of food, if for any reason the valve is opened, the contents of the small intestine enter the stomach and esophagus along with the bile.
There are many causes of valve disruption, among them intestinal obstruction, bile reflux, alcohol poisoning, gastroenteritis, food poisoning, stenosis of the doorkeeper, the effect of certain medications, diseases of the bile duct or pancreas, circulatory disorders, CNS diseases, severe emotional upheavals.

Vomiting with blood after eating
Vomiting with bright red impurities indicates bleeding in the esophagus, a dark color to the vomit masses imparts a blood change under the action of digestive juices and indicates prolonged bleeding.
The causes of vomiting with blood are many:
- damage to the gastric mucosa, esophagus
- varicosity of the walls of the stomach (bright red blood in the vomit indicates fresh bleeding, which often closes quickly, dark vomit signs of a slow and prolonged bleeding and possible severe consequences)

Vomiting of mucus after eating
Vomiting after eating with mucus is most often with poisoning. The reaction of the body to poor-quality products, pathogenic bacteria or poisonous substances develops rapidly. Mucus in the vomit appears because the contents of the duodenum due to the multiplication of harmful bacteria and secretion of toxins enter the stomach, the mucosa of which is unable to cope with caustic digestive juices, in some cases, in addition to mucus, foam or blood appears.
Vomiting with mucus occurs when there are alkalis, acids, viral infections, influenza, erosive processes in the stomach. Also, mucus may appear with gastritis, which took a severe or chronic form, in which case vomiting occurs when diet or stress conditions are violated. If a person is exposed to constant negative emotions, a gallbladder spasm is possible, as a result of which bile does not enter the duodenum and the process of digestion of food is disturbed - poorly digested food remains rotting in the intestine. After the spasm passes, the accumulated bile pours out into the intestine, the acids of which burn the valve between the stomach and intestines, and food remains in the stomach - in this case, vomit greenish color with mucus.
If vomiting with mucus is a concern only in the morning, this may indicate chronic bronchitis or alcohol intoxication. With bronchitis, mucus accumulates in the bronchi during the night, coughing attacks can provoke vomiting in the morning, as a result, mucus gets into the vomit.
When mucus occurs during vomiting, you should seek medical help to find out the exact causes of the pathology and begin treatment.
During vomiting categorically you can not hold back, after emptying the stomach you need to go to bed and drink more liquid - mineral water without gas, saline solutions, sweet black tea, to prevent dehydration. With frequent attacks of vomiting, you can take anti-emetic drugs (cerucal), but it is worth noting that with the help of vomiting the body gets rid of harmful toxins, so it's best to see a doctor right away.
Dizziness and vomiting after eating
Physicians identify about a hundred causes of dizziness, nausea and vomiting that appear after meals, most of which do not pose a threat to health, for example, seasickness (motion sickness in transport), physical exhaustion.
Dizziness may occur after severe injuries, during migraine attacks, epilepsy, blood circulation disorders, tumors, during Meniere's disease (internal ear damage), diseases of the vestibular apparatus. Vomiting after eating and dizziness is a symptom of various diseases or disorders, and therefore the diagnosis is difficult. When such symptoms appear, self-medication is unacceptable.
Consider some of the reasons that can cause vomiting and dizziness:
- Meniere's disease - the causes of pathology have not been studied enough, according to some versions, the disease causes injuries or infections. With the development of the disease, prolonged attacks of dizziness (up to several hours), nausea, vomiting, deterioration of hearing. After 10-14 days, the symptoms go away, but after a while they reappear.
- vestibular neuritis - causes dizziness (usually occurs spontaneously), vomiting, panic attacks, imbalance, bow tilt provokes an increase in symptoms, in some cases, there is stuffiness in the ears. The disease develops after respiratory diseases, but the exact causes have not been established to date.
- migraine - in addition to a severe headache, migraine attacks can provoke nausea and vomiting, imbalance, dizziness, fear of light. The disease is caused by a violation of the blood supply in the brain, especially the areas responsible for the vestibular apparatus.
- hormonal changes - most often observed in women, because they are susceptible to hormonal changes during pregnancy, menopause, and before every menses. Especially the level of hormones affects the condition with a deficiency of iron in the body - low hemoglobin causes oxygen starvation of the brain, which causes dizziness. During climax there are jumps in blood pressure, nervous excitability increases. In pregnancy, dizziness and vomiting (especially in the first months of pregnancy) is also caused by hormonal changes in the body, another cause of this condition may be low blood glucose and low blood pressure.
Cough and vomiting after eating
Cough and vomiting is rare, but such symptoms immediately cause great anxiety, both in the patient himself and in his relatives. Specialists note that some diseases of the upper respiratory tract can lead to this condition.
Most often coughing and vomiting after eating can be troubling for bronchitis, and also arise as a complication in pneumonia. It is worth noting that the child has such symptoms often and usually occurs with a cold, but in any case, when such a symptom appears, you should immediately seek medical help and establish the true cause of coughing and vomiting.
Strong coughing attacks before vomiting are associated with stimulation of receptors on the mucous throat, this condition can occur with tracheitis, laryngitis, pertussis, bronchitis, acute respiratory infections, runny nose, prolonged smoking, foreign matter entering the respiratory tract.
Coughing with vomiting in the rhinitis is especially common in newborn babies, since children of this age are not yet able to blow their nose and the mucus that has accumulated in the nose flows down the nasopharynx, irritates the mucous membrane and causes a coughing attack, reaching vomiting.
Artificial vomiting after eating
Vomiting, as already mentioned, is a protective reaction of the body to bacteria, toxins, harmful substances that enter the digestive tract. But sometimes a person provokes vomiting, in this case they say that vomiting is artificial.
In some cases, artificial vomiting after eating will save lives for example, with food poisoning, the faster the poison is removed from the body, the less harm it will have to inflict.
But sometimes people specifically induce vomiting after eating, most often it is done in order not to get better. This "recipe" of slenderness is especially popular among the girls who want to keep the ideal figure and not torture themselves with rigid diets. It is worth noting that this method of weight loss is quite effective, since after eating the brain receives a signal of satiety, but after vomiting, not having time to digest food leaves the stomach, and with it, and leave calories.
But this method poses a serious danger to human health - with regular devastation of the stomach after eating, it becomes a habit in the body, and in the future even small portions of food provoke a vomiting reflex, resulting in the development of bulimia (a neuropsychic disorder expressing an ongoing hunger, weakness ).
Weight loss with vomiting after eating
Most girls believe that fast weight loss is an ideal option, so among the fair sex has become popular method such as weight loss with the help of vomiting after eating.
First of all, this method has earned its popularity due to its ease, i.e. Girls do not need to torture themselves with strict diets, exercise, etc., simply after eating cause vomiting and unnecessary calories themselves will leave the body, and as a result, a slim figure without difficulty.
But "emetic slimming" is extremely dangerous for health and causes not only physiological, but psychological disorders.
The desire to lose weight often leads the girls to the point that they do not understand where the harmony, and where there is already a painful exhaustion. The first dangerous sign is increased portions, uncontrolled consumption of sweet or fatty foods, a constant feeling of hunger - all this precedes the development of severe neuropsychic disorder.
With bulimia, there are bouts of severe hunger, in which a person does not control the amount eaten, but after eating food, a vomiting reflex develops. Such a vicious circle is associated with the fact that the muscles of the stomach can contract, and with regular vomiting after eating, the walls of the stomach become weak, stretch, resulting in a constant strong sense of hunger. As a result, the girl looks like a skeleton, covered with leather, with dull and brittle hair, flabby skin, crumbling teeth. Also the result of regular vomiting is gastritis, the digestion process is disrupted, an unpleasant odor from the mouth appears.
But often, even such a transformation does not stop the girls, as vomiting after eating becomes uncontrollable and provoke a vomitive reflex can even smell or kind of food, which is associated with weakness of the stomach muscles.
At this stage of the disease, loss of appetite may begin and anorexia develop, complete physical exhaustion, failure of internal organs, cessation of the menstrual cycle, depressive disorders, often without the help of relatives and doctors, the matter ends in a fatal outcome.
It is worth noting that even in such cases, girls refuse to help, and the recovery process takes months and even years, often because of their desire to be slender girls struggling with the consequences of the disease for the rest of their lives.
Vomiting after eating a child
Often young mothers face such a frightening symptom as vomiting after eating a baby. Especially worried about this condition, if there are no other symptoms - temperature, abdominal pain, weakness, etc.
The reasons for which a child is vomiting immediately or after a while after a meal is plentiful, and parents should know the basic ones in order to help their kid in time.
Natural vomiting can be associated with ordinary overeating, after violent feeding, eating very fatty foods. As a rule, in these cases, vomiting occurs once, after emptying the stomach the child looks healthy, the general condition does not deteriorate.
In newborns, vomiting after feeding is associated with ingestion of air into the stomach - regurgitation helps not only to remove air bubbles, but also to improve the digestive process, and also to reduce colic. Normally, regurgitation should be in small amounts, but if the amount of vomit is too large, the child tears a "fountain", then this may indicate problems with the stomach, in which case you need to see a doctor as soon as possible.
Also, the causes of vomiting can be various diseases:
- chronic gastrointestinal diseases.
- rotavirus, intestinal infection (in addition to vomiting, there is a deterioration in well-being and a high fever).
- diseases of the respiratory tract (cold, bronchitis, etc.).
- brain tumors (the child is also concerned with severe headaches).
- meningitis, encephalitis (after vomiting the child does not become easier).
- acute appendicitis.
- food poisoning (overdue, spoiled food, etc.).
When vomiting occurs, the child should immediately seek medical help, since it is almost impossible to find out the causes of such a condition - the same symptoms can be associated with a variety of diseases that can not be diagnosed without laboratory tests and examination by a specialist.
