so I was throwing up green stuff today and...

My 14 month old was throwing up last night and after i laid he down for bed i started feeling yucky too...woke up this morning and couldn't keep ANYTHING down. Threw up a good 9 to 10 times and called mom and had he get baby and I went to the ER.

They said it was just a virus.

I was vomiting green stuff....

could that really have been from a virus? to my knowledge that would be bile, right? what would cause that?

  • Unless you were eating spinach or something else green, it's possibly bile. You should call your doctor.

  • Could be from something that you ate. I would just wait a few days to see if you get better before going to the doctor.

  • bile is what you throw up when your body wants to vomit but you have nothing else in your stomach, bile is always in your stomach, it is what helps you digest food. it is totally normal to vomit small amounts of bile when you have a virus causing you to vomit.
