"Cyclical vomiting": Young woman has to vomit 20 times a day

Many illnesses lead to nausea and vomiting. Everyone knows how bad you feel then. One person who can understand this much more is a 23-year-old woman from Great Britain. She has to vomit 20 times a day.

Vomit every 20 minutes
Nausea and vomiting are a common side effect of many diseases. It is often sufficient to use certain home remedies for nausea, such as various teas. Self-treatment of nausea and vomiting does not work equally for all patients. Some are particularly hard hit. 23-year-old Stephanie Horner has been suffering from a rare disease for around ten years. The young woman from Gateshead (England) was diagnosed with the "cyclical vomiting syndrome" (CVS). She is almost always sick and has to vomit up to 20 times a day. In very bad phases, Horner vomits every 20 minutes and often has to be refilled with liquid in a hospital.

Difficult to treat and incurable
The disease first became noticeable in the British at the age of 13. Health experts say CVS usually begins in childhood and affects about one in 300,000 children. In addition to nausea and vomiting, other symptoms such as abdominal pain, headache, fever or, as a result of frequent vomiting, internal dehydration can occur. Little is known about the causes. The diagnosis is difficult. Even with Horner, the disease was only diagnosed when there was vomiting of blood and it was therefore extensively examined. The disease is considered difficult to treat and incurable.

Disease can be life-threatening
Due to the various complaints, it is hardly possible for the young woman to pursue an activity. Several British newspapers reported that she had to drop out of college a few years ago due to her illness and has already lost several jobs. To the Daily Mail, she said: "In the worst case, I have to vomit every 20 minutes, between the seizures I try not to vomit. Every morning I lie in bed thinking about going to the hospital. If I misjudge the situation, I may die of dehydration. ”

Little known about illness
In another newspaper, the "Metro", Horner said: "It can be a really embarrassing illness because I have often vomited myself because my body does not send me any warning signals." As reported by "news.de" said Dr. Robin Dover, chairman of the Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome Association, told the newspaper: “CVS is a poorly researched disease. Most of the time, those affected are completely healthy. Between their crushing attacks, they are perfectly normal. But then they have these bouts of constant nausea and vomiting. "(Ad)
