Finding this forum has really been a great source of information. My husband has been suffering from exstreme abdominal pain and uncontrolable vomiting for ten years. He has had every test they have, been to numerous doctors and hospitals, with no answers. He has had times where he did't have an episode for long periods of time, but neither one of us is sure if it was during a time he didn't use. This last time he had been for weeks and finally after twenty four hours of vomiting, had to go to the ER. The one thing that sticks out here is the hot showers. When this is going on he takes them constantly or takes a steaming hot bath. He states this is the only time he gets relief. This is something I will definately bring to his doctors attention. After all this time we may finally have an answer.
