I hope you're getting her to the Emergency Room!!!! Things like that can't be ignored...it could be a bleeding ulcer or appendicitis. I went through that fear 7 years ago May 22nd. I had to have my Mom air lifted to the hospital. So, Chechuva, I know what you're going through. Please PLEASE get her to medical help. If it isn't anything serious what have you lost? If it is serious then she is at the right place to get help. I am praying for you and your Mother.

actually i did some assessment that eliminates appendicitis and ulcer. i gave her some first aid. and thank God she's getting better now. i was really afraid doing those things. im taking precautions too because she's diabetic. thanks for the prayer! it did helped a lot!!

How's your mom now? I think that you should call a physician over if possible. If not, then I believe that you should bring her to the hospital. Personally, I really get worried everytime mom gets sick. She has the tendency to really get high blood pressure. I always remind her about taking her medicines and vitamins. I also remind her about the food she is NOT allowed to eat. Same thing is true with my dad. I hope that your mom gets well very soon!

My mom is now fine. though she's still feeling weak, she already stopped throwing up. i decided not to send her to the hospital since her body responded to the medicine i gave her. actually its really hard to control our parents specially when its about eating the right food. my mom is really hard headed at times... (mom, i love you).. thanks for the response.. hope your mom manage her blood pressure..

Yes I got sick from eating ice cream I drank lots of water and layed down for a while it helped quite a bit also some Pepto-Bismol can help for a queasy stomach, it's slightly antibiotic.

yeah! i can't imagine what other described my facial expression when my mom experience stroke. we are left on our home, my dad and my siblings was out they some works to do out of town. we are very happy on our conversation early in the morning, my mom left me for awhile she said a call of nature then i said her it's okay. when she came back she feels different and her eyes when i saw her there's a rapid blink. i asked here if she ok she said i'm not worry because that's normal, until she said she can't see anything. i don't know what do, i went out the house and call my store attendant to help me. i am running without even slippers. when i came back the house my mom is lying on the bed with nothing. so i lift her and we went to the hospital. the doctor said that i am lucky because i brought here immediately to the hospital because if it's late there's worst happened. i am happy again that day when i saw my mom smile at me. i love my mom more than anything else.

I don't think there is any reason to panic over here. Probably she ate something that her body is allergic to. Let her sleep for a couple of hours , she will feel better. Her body needs rest. If she doesn't feel better then maybe u can take her to the doctor. ~pinks~

i'd try to get her to the hospital if possible. if she can't stop throwing up and has stomach pains,she could have food poisoning.

chedchuva It sounds to me like she has either a case of food poisoning or else the Norfolk virus. In any case she should be taken to see her doctor as soon as possible as either condition can be helped with the proper medical care.
