Question:
i have been having migraines--i feel fine but when a migraine starts there comes the vomiting--i have twice been dehydrated and sent to the hospital for fluids--never had migraines before--i am in my 11 week--what can i do--i have tried all the home remedies and my doctor has me on tylenol with codeine--when will this get better--i have to get backto work

Answer:
I am not sure if this is really a question for our forum as this does not appear to be classical NVP, the vomiting appears to be secondary to the migraine. However, it could be a combination of both and there are effective treatments for NVP. If you live in Canada or the US you can call our toll free NVP line(1-800-436-8477) for information from one of our specially trained counsellors. If you live elsewhere you can download our treatment algorithm and pass it on to your physician.
