Felt nauseous last night but managed to get some sleep. Since I've been up I've thrown up a few times. I've tried fresh ginger in boiled water which hasn't worked. My mum also insisted on diluted fresh lemon which again hasn't worked. Every time i move my head spins and I feel dizzy.

Have I got food poisoning? What else can cause this? I can just about look at my tablet screen.

what about vertigo?
Could be an inner ear disturbance, try to rest.
////Have I got food poisoning?////.

I doubt it. On the scraps of information given, my best guess is that it is a viral infection of the inner ear (vestibular neuronitis).
Nobig deal, no antibiotics needed, just rest and perhaps Ibuprofen if you develop a temperature.
It should only last about 4-5 days.

Been drifting in and out of sleep since vomiting this morning. Retched a couple of times too.

It's weird because I felt the same last Wed or Thur but without being sick.
Many years ago, I started having these symptoms - diagnosed as labyrinthitis. It continued sporadically and further investigation changed the diagnosis to Meniere's Syndrome.
gingejbee......a not uncommon sequence of events.

Just managed to eat a piece of dry toast and plain rice and lentil soup. And herbal tea. Hope it all stays down!

Yes, drinking plenty of water, Tony x
Strange that it happened last Wednesday and Thursday als
Sorry I accidently pressed send. Was going to ask, do you eat the same foodstuffs on those days?
Sounds like some sort of virus, as others have mentioned. Just stuck to bland food and water for a couple if days. Also, might be useful to keep a food diary. Hope you feel better very soon.x

Thanks Patsy and all x
These all sound like symptoms of iron deficiency anemia.

Still feeling a nauseous today but doesn't seem to be as bad as yesterday. Threw up again last night after taking some paracetamol. Is it true you can have a fear of vomiting?
Hope it gets sorted soon and you feel better Tigger.

Have you managed to speak to gp. I know it is a phone consultation but that might help you. If you haven't than I suggest you give him a ring
