Vomiting

Comprehensive Guidance from TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track

At TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track, we pride ourselves on offering the Tampa community comprehensive medical care at over 15 locations. Vomiting is a common complaint we address, and we aim to provide both the best care and information to our valued patients.

Understanding Vomiting:

Vomiting or emesis is more than just an unpleasant experience; it’s the body’s way of getting rid of harmful substances but can also be a symptom of various conditions.

Detailed Causes of Vomiting:

Gastrointestinal Issues:

Viral Gastroenteritis

Often referred to as the stomach flu, this is a common reason people visit our centers.

GERD

This chronic digestive disorder occurs when stomach acid flows back into the esophagus.

Infections and Toxins:

Food Poisoning

Florida’s warm and humid climate can accelerate food spoilage, increasing the risk.

Local Toxins

Tampa’s rich marine life means occasional exposure to biotoxins, such as those from certain algal blooms.

Medications and Treatments:

Many medications, including chemotherapy and certain antibiotics, have nausea and vomiting as side effects.

Travel & Environmental Factors:

Motion Sickness:

Whether from air travel or cruises docking at Tampa’s port.

Heat-Related Illnesses:

With Tampa’s hot climate, heat exhaustion can result in vomiting.

Neurological Causes:

Injuries, migraines, or conditions that increase intracranial pressure can trigger vomiting.

More on Vomiting and Associated Symptoms:

Sometimes vomiting is accompanied by other symptoms that can help in identifying its cause:

Fever: Indicates an infectious cause.

Diarrhea: Suggests gastroenteritis or food poisoning.

Headache or Neck Stiffness: Could indicate meningitis or migraines.

Abdominal Pain: Points to gastrointestinal issues or gallbladder disease.

Vertigo: May hint at inner ear issues.

Hydration Stations:

Recognizing the frequent dehydration issues associated with vomiting, especially in Tampa’s climate, many of our centers feature hydration stations. These stations provide intravenous (IV) fluids and electrolytes to patients in need, ensuring swift rehydration and symptom relief.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ`s) About Vomiting:

Tips for Patients:

  • Dietary Care: Start with clear liquids and slowly progress to more substantial foods as your stomach settles.
  • Rest: Your body might need some downtime to recover fully.
  • Stay Cool: In the sweltering Tampa heat, ensure you stay cool and hydrated to prevent heat-induced illnesses.
  • Reach Out: When in doubt, it’s always best to seek medical advice. Our team is here to guide you.
