Hi all,
 
I seem to be developing new Crohn's symptoms (lucky me, just when I think I've got it figured out).  On the 4th of July I experienced overwhelming pain in the ileum area accompanied with nausea (no vomiting) and a fever of 102.  The sudden onset had me pretty scared.  But, I popped a few steroids and in a few days felt better. 
 
We're doing a scope in a few weeks to see if the doc can see the ileum or what's going on there.  If he can't, we'll do an upper or a CT.
 
Anyway, in the past week I have been super nauseous.  This is not accompanied by any new pain and things are "moving along" normally.
 
What has been your experiences with the cause of nausea?  Also, Pepto Bismo doesn't seem to be helping.  Does anyone else have suggestions?
 
Thanks~

Whenever I have had nausea it usually meant that I had a stricture. Things hit that spot and it causes everything to kind of backwash and make you nauseous. Ask your GI about some Zofran. That is great for nausea and doesn't make you all loopy. Good luck and glad you have a scope coming up, he should be able to see it hopefully.

For several years now, nausea is my first cue that I'm going to have to make a quick trip to the bathroom. I suddenly feel a wave of nausea, which is very quickly followed by the need to find a bathroom immediately. I also feel nauseated at the end of virtually every meal. I have no idea what it means, but I know it happens on a daily basis--and I don't like it.

I agree with the others, but I have also found that if I do not eat I get nausea too.

I've felt nausea every day for the since my symptoms started before xmas. I've taken a range of anti-nausea drugs. It's worse when I'm hungry, but generally bad all the time. Doctor's haven't tried to explain why though, so I just thought it was a standard crohn's symptom.

Another thing that can cause nausea is acid reflux or GERD. If you feel better after you eat, then your stomach starts getting sick again as it empties, then for me at least, it was GERD. I didn't have acid burning up my esophagus, I just had a knawing nauseaous stomach. Started on my Prilosec and that is much better.

Hi guys!
I too am always feeling the nausea. Recently since stopping remicade and it's not in my body anymore. No matter what I eat, or if I don't eat I get so like I'm going to throw up. Last few weeks I had to take gravel to get through it. But weird since my starter dosage of humira yesterday the nausea doesn't last as long, nor do I feel the need to take a gravel.I do get the ulcer's in the high stomach area. So it's nothing compare to have a flair in the stomach (actually throwing up for hours, usually ends in a ER visit for morphine,gravel,and the fluids.) Def going to ask my doctor about some of these anti nausea meds for me.
Hope your all feeling less nauseated
