Hi Spuds,

 

While online resources are great sources for information about what might be ailing you, it can not and should not take the place of your doctor's advice. Hopefully you are seeing a doctor about this problem. Vomiting can cause a depletion of minerals and electrolytes, and cause dehydration, so make sure you are keeping yourself hydrated by drinking lots of fluids.

 

You can check all of your symptoms here in the symptoms database. You can also take an assessment here to determine if the vomiting is something associated with the acid reflux.

 

Hope this helps! Take care of yourself and stay in touch. Let us know how you are doing!

Yes, it is possible for acid reflux to cause vomiting. However, if this is occurring every morning then their likely is other factors contributing to the vomiting. One possibility is GERD ( Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease). Some symptoms other than vomiting are frequent heartburn more than three times a week, Heartburn that returns after your antacid wears off, weight loss, regurgitated blood and difficulty swallowing. If you experience at least two of these symptoms you should consult your physcian and have them run tests on you to see if GERD is a possibility.

Did you ever find out the cause of your vomiting in the morning?   My husband has the same problem.  Have been going through tests and medications for 2 years now.

I vomit occasionally in the morning. Normally, after I have about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of coffee with cream and when I'm cleaning up the kitchen, so a couple of hours after I actually wake up. I don't know why. This is preceded by heartburn and pressure building in my throat and has nothing to do with classic "nausea". I have other occasional bouts of heartburn. My husband died of esophogeal cancer, and I told my doctor about this, but don't have any answers so far.

I have the exact same symptoms you are describing - not an every day thing - but occasionally and after I'm up for awhile and have had the better part of a cup of coffee with cream. I find if I take an antacid pill (mine are prescription) first thing in the morning, I am not bothered by this symptom. It seems to be excessive acid that I vomit - and yes, no nausea. My husband, too, died of esophageal cancer. He had these and other symptoms for decades - and my father had acid reflux to the point they almost performed a dangerous surgery on him so he could swallow, but he died at 87 and never developed cancer, although he did have Barrett's Esophagus. I think one of the antacids like Prilosac or Nexium might help your morning symptoms.
