Is it morning sickness, nausea and vomiting of pregnancy or emesis associated with pregnancy?

 
Pregnancy Sickness has been around for as long as women have been pregnant. It is estimated that between 50% to 80% of pregnancies bring with them the sickness that can start and end at any time of day or night - sometimes not end at all. For decades the world of medical science has sought an answer to it, but this has been a demanding task as no-one in their right mind would attempt tests on a Mother and Fetus.

Research

Asking a pregnant woman to try a new product is unsavoury for obvious reasons - why should she be the guinea pig? Hence nothing much has really progressed in terms of finding a solution to the problem, that is until now. Now we have a better understanding of which bodily organs are involved in the process of being sick - what the medical profession calls "EMESIS".

A new understanding of the pathways used in Emesis

Does it drive you crazy to receive great advice intended to stop you from vomiting - that involves swallowing something? If you manage to swallow it - how long is it going to stay with you anyway?

An NHS study showed MorningWell helped combat symptoms in over 90% of instances. MorningWell for Morning Sickness. No drugs, no side effects.

What have these organs to do with
Pregnancy Sickness?
 
Primary component in Emesis - Stomach Primary component in Emesis - Ear
Primary component in Emesis - Brain

At first it may seem strange but these organs have have very definite roles to play in the process of being sick.

Maternal susceptibility to nausea and vomiting of pregnancy:
is the vestibular system involved?

Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy shares many characteristics with motion sickness, a vestibular dependent phenomenon. A number of physiologic changes that occur in normal pregnancy are also known to accompany nausea and vomiting in patients with motion sickness and certain vestibular disorders. This chapter summarizes some shared features of both phenomena. The unmasking of subclinical vestibular disorders may account for some cases of hyperemesis gravidarum. Hormonal effects on neurotransmitter function may also play a role in nausea and vomiting of pregnancy and in some vestibular disorders; however, the specific neural mechanisms of nausea and vomiting have not been identified. Until the neurochemical processes underlying these phenomena are understood, prevention and management will remain in the domain of astute, but so far limited, clinical observation.

Physiology of chemotherapy-induced emesis and antiemetic therapy.
Predictive models for evaluation of new compounds.

Drugs 1997 Feb;53(2):206-34   (ISSN: 0012-6667)

The physiology of emesis has been studied for several hundred years, focusing on the different centres involved and the mechanics of expulsion. The vomiting centre receives inputs from various emetic detectors such as the gut, the vestibular labyrinths and the chemoreceptor trigger zone. Emesis is a common disabling effect in motion sickness, postoperative conditions and in radio- and chemotherapy. Our current understanding of the mechanisms has been provided mainly by the recent introduction of serotonin 5-HT3 receptor antagonists into therapeutic use. Nevertheless, despite the considerable advances made in the understanding of the different pathways involved in emesis, there are number of areas that still require experimental investigation. Different animal and human models are available to study the physiology of emesis and to evaluate the antiemetic activity of new compounds, but they need to be predictors of clinical situations.

Your local pharmacists in the UK will be able to offer advice on a variety of products and they have been supplied information covering our products as we featured in Pharmacy Magazine and Pharmacy Products Review in June and July 2001.

They can also offer leaflets on the subject of Vomiting. The following leaflet can be obtained at a pharmacy displaying Unichem Community Pharmacy information.

Sickness - Upset Stomach Information Leaflet.
Common Causes of Vomiting:
The most common reason for vomiting is reflex vomiting due to conditions such as stomach inflammation (gastritis), stomach ulcer and a narrowing at the stomach's exit, called pyloric stenosis.  Other conditions that produce vomiting include appendicitis, bowel obstruction and pain from kidney or gallstonesCertain drugs such as aspirin or ibuprofen may also cause stomach irritation and vomiting in susceptible people. Motion sickness and Meniere's Syndrome - which affects a part of the ear known as the vestibular part - are two other well known causes of sickness and vomiting.  Vomiting can also be a feature of many serious illnesses including various brain lesions caused by infection or swelling.  It is also common symptom of migraine and is also associated with psychological conditions such as hysteria, anxiety and nervous tension.
