Case 29 introduces a 28-year-old medical secretary with recurrent episodes of nausea and vomiting of bile-stained, partially digested food. In addition, she reports frequent bloating, belching, and epigastric discomfort. These symptoms appear about 1 to 2 hours after meals. She reports no hematemesis. Vomiting typically relieves the symptoms, at least partially, until her next meal. She has had no recent change in bowel habits. She denies a history of heartburn or peptic ulcer disease.
