My daughter has gastroparesis for a couple of year . In a period of 18 months she was hospitalized 26 times. She has been poked and prodded by close to 100 doctors, none of which had any answers, her prominent presenting problems were nausea and vomiting. Because it was the only thing that would bring relief she would put her fingers in her throat to induce the vomiting. Many of the nurses and docs who witnessed this were rightfully concerned about the damage being done but many were visibly disgusted. Some even told her that they wouldn't give her drugs until she stopped. One said because she was doing this to herself, he wouldn't treat her. All of these medical people knew she was using marijuana to help with her nausea. They did not know however that it was making her sicker. The more she felt sick the more she smoked (it worked short term). After one doctor told her she might be reacting negatively to the pot she quit. This was 5 months ago and she hasn't been to the ER since, she still deals with the nausea but it is controllable with meds and it seems to be getting better. I'm NOT saying that anyone should stop doing whatever works for them but for some people marijuana might be exacerbating the problem. It's called Cannabanoid hyper emisis Syndrome. Good luck to all of you. I have read your stories and am humbled by your courage and resilience.
