    This may sound a little odd as I've heard nobody else complaining of this but I feel like I've swallowed a lemon. All day long I have this horrible feeling in my tummy like I've eaten something it doesn't care for. I get heartburn on and off throughout the day and whenever I'm sick (3 times a day on average) it's always pretty much pure stomach acid. And I just feel so burpy - like I could put a pin in my tummy and go 'pop'!!!

    Am I suffering alone or are the rest of u simply suffering in silence?!

    I lie in bed in the morning dreading getting up cos as soon as I'm vertical I'm running to be sick. My MW suggested nibbling something before I get up but it didn't seem to make any difference. Can't face the idea of anything Ginger - yuck! Lol

    poor peanut must be getting seasick what with all the commotion in my abdomen at the mo!! ;-)

    Hi!

    I have been experiencing very severe morning sickness -- was unable to keep food or liquids down for going on 5 days. Yesterday I was placed on diclectin.

    I was constantly throwing up (upwards of 20 times a day, which meant a lot of it was just stomach acid).
    I haven't thrown up since this morning, but I am still experiencing the acidic feeling and VERY burpy!
    Try chewing on gum (no artificial sweeteners). I have found this somewhat eases the illness.

    I've been geting acid real bad, MS not too bad couple of times a day, but the doc gave me Gaviscon it helps a lot once I can swallow it lol.

    Doc is really worried though as not many anti sickness pills I can take and I take anti epileptic drugs, which I am throwing up which brings about issues itself!

    I've got my sickness bands and I think they seemed more effective about a week ago than they do now - although I wouldn't dare take them off!!

    Are we allowed to take gaviscon? It feels like such a minefield when it comes to meds :)
