Hi everyone. I'm hoping someone on here can help me. My husband was diagnosed with Lupus last year (after about 10 years of aching off & on, plus a host of other symptoms). Anyway, he's been having bouts of constipation (to the point of having a colonoscopy, which showed a lovely, healthy colon). Anyway, finally got the constipation under control, but something else is happening now: there are nights when he's up most of the night throwing up (no constipation & hasn't eaten anything particularly spicy). It gets to the point that there's nothing left to come up other than mucus & bile. Could this be caused by the lupus or could there be something else causing it? Also, he was diagnosed several years ago with both GERD & IBS. He refuses to go see a doctor & I'm about at my wits' end. Any thoughts? Thanks!View Thread
