I don't remember this, but the stomach flu has been running around here. I REALLY think the nausea is just all the meds, but last night it got to the point that I had to take a phenergan to get any relief and rest.

Would tapering pred be a source of the nausea? I went from 30mg to 15mg to 5mg. Will be stopping this Friday....

I don't think its the Pred, at least I have never had that reaction. I think more than likely you have a bug.

Feel better,

Thanks Gail... they've added meds and with the decrease in Pred comes a decrease in appetite... and I'm wondering if the pain pills are causing some of the nausea too.

It's better, but the other night was ROUGH.. I didn't sleep hardly at all last night either. I've been laid up on the couch most of the day today...

Sorry hun, I wish we could make you better:( i understand the symptoms and lack of sleep. It looks like you have had a lot to deal with in the past 3 yrs. I couldn't imagine losing a daughter. This will be Claires first xmas. It was a miracle that I got pregnant. The drug i was taking caused infertility. At least thats what it said. Hopefully we can have another one. Anyways. . . off topic lol. Wishing you all the best this holiday and hoping the nausea disapears for ya.
