Hello Everyone #2

I am a female with Autism the Aspergers kind I live in a Group home in Charlotte North Carolina and I am feeling like I do not belong a part of this world because I am haveing problems with All Day Vomiting or throwing up some days up to where I cannot keep food down and My Parents and Group home manager yell at me saying I cannot have a Soda. I like Soda I would like to be able to have a soda once in a while How can I be able to have a soda once in a while.I do not like it with being told I cannot drink a soda period How often can I drink a soda. I WANT TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THE VOMITING OR THROWING UP ISSUE. I AM VERY VERY VERY BOTHERED BY THIS I am upset because no one will let me go through tests like in a hospital or somewhere to get to the bottom of throwing up or vomiting . What Can I do?
  • i think the reason for this is because you're allergic to soda. plus soda is not good for you anyways. it's because your tummy can't handle all that intake. so that's the reason you barf all the time. or probably you have a sickness in your body. like cancer. but it's but to your group home or your parents to decide to let you go to the doctor.

  • hidden heartburn maybe!  Try heartburn remedies! Cut down on the soda, try fizzy water instead or plain water! Cut down on the tea, coffee, spicy foods etc..

    cut down on sauces and pickles and the like, as these are acidic! 

    Are your Period terrible as these could also cause vomiting once a month, try agus castus tablets, primrose oil and such like! 

    best regards, sorry replied late!

  • I suggest you go and see a gastroenterologist (gi doctor) and see what he/she has to say.  My son has reflux and had this type of issue.  He takes Prevacid Solu-tab daily and it is now well controlled.

  • How old are you, sweetie??  If you are above the age of 18, you have a right to see a doctor on your own.  The group home should not be making medical decisions on your behalf unless you have already seen a doctor for the same condition and are not taking the doctor's advice.  Do you have a health care advocate?  If not, you should see about getting one who can help you communicate your concerns to a doctor or other health care professional.  Good luck with this.  And, yes, it may be the soda, but if you don't see a doctor, you'll never know.
