I'm looking at where you said, "turning my head from side to side so much". Are you turning left and right for a breath on every stroke? If so, you are probably getting vertigo and/or taking in so much air that most of it is going to your stomach.

Gary, do you ever experience a clogged ear? The reason I ask is because over the winter I have had to train in a teenytiny hotel pool. 6 laps and had to turn around...I thought the dizzyness/nausea I was experiencing was because of the small pool but after talking with my family doctor and putting two and two together I have an eustachian tube defect. The other piece of the puzzle was while running my ear would clog and I'd have the Darth Vadar breathing sound. So long story short..my L ear doesn't clog normally. So I've been spraying Nasonex once a day and the dizzyness/nausea stopped pretty soon after starting the medication.
Just a thought...................

i definitely dont THINK its something i ate. i get really dizzy after im done and then as soon as i get home i throw up. i think it may be from turning my head side to side so much. not sure if there is anything i can do

what is the cause do you think? food? allergies? exhaustion? I swam competitively in high school and would throw up after a lot of races and then long practices. I found out i had a slight allergy for chlorine. shocking! I took medicine and it never happened again.

Are you eating or drinking anything before or during your swim? if so, then what? What time of the day are you swimming? It could be that your stroke (swimming from side to side) is a bit extreme and causing your stomach to shake up. Or it could be that you're taking in too much water during your swim and your stomach is not used to the chlorine.
