Hi everyone, in need of some help/advice.
It seems as I have been having bouts of nausea more and more often with my crohn's (just diagnosed this past April, on Asacol 2400mg bid). It wasn't much of a concern to me at first. Happened a few times at work, one time I had to sit down for 5 minutes because I felt so nauseous. It happened last week along with stomach pain which forced me to pay a visit to the ER. I received IV fluids and an iv injection of zofran and a pain medication- they thought it could have been related to ovarian cysts +/- crohn's. Happened this past weekend along with abdominal pain- I laid down for 10minutes extremely nausous before it passed- then I felt fine! I am the type of person that RARELY RARELY feels nauseous and I never vomit.
I felt fine all today until three hours into work (I work in a very busy veterinary hospital so barely have a moment to stand in ONE spot for more than a minute). I had to sit on the floor because I felt so sick moments after having a bowel movement (how embarassing first off!). I was recommended to take a pepcid. I sat in a dark office for 5 minutes before running to the bathroom and vomiting (again, so embarassing!). I am new to having crohn's disease, although been suffering with GI issues for many years, so I know something isn't right and a new issue in my life. A friend at work recommended I go back to the Emergency room but I am opting to see my GI doctor instead. The only other times I left work or missed work was for my colonoscopy, last week at the ER and today. Anyone else have bouts of nausea/vomiting? I am not even sure if it is crohn's related but I am thinking it is because of the pain. I feel so embarassed now in front of my co-workers, as if my normal bathroom habits aren't enough!
Any insight would be great. I am waiting to hear back from my doctor currently. Thank you all.
