I know this is usually related to obstruction but I don't think so in this case. I'm not sure if it's the Prednisone or the Protonix weakening my stomach juices too much but every once and awhile I get this kinda feeling like I want to toss - but it never gets that bad. I wouldn't call it reflux cause there is no pain, and I don't think I'd call it nausea because, I don't know, it just doesn't seem that bad. It comes and goes seemingly at random - no tie to when I eat or my position that I can figure. Testing shows I'm mostly inflamed in the large colon. I do have alot of bloat going on.

Nausea is one of the most common symptoms of crohn's disease. I know I have gone through periods when I had episodes of nausea every day. As you say not so bad that you are in danger of vomiting, just queasy. I had to learn to eat even though I never felt hungry during these times. Otherwise I would have been anorexic because I forget what it felt like to be hungry.

I'm not feeling that way anymore. After years of mostly being the other way it is a wake-up call in retrospect. I think it is a significant symptom if it is pervasive, not just once in awhile.

Ginger is a natural nausea remedy.  I've tried ginger tea, but didn't notice a difference.  I may not have brewed it strong enough.  My mom found some ginger candies called Ginger Chews, and they seem to help with queaziness.  I haven't felt run-for-the-bathroom bad since I got them, so I don't know how much they'll help if it's really bad.

Peppermint is supposed to be good for settling the stomach also.

I have nausea all the time. I have to take 8 mg Zofran every morning and Phenergan everynight before bed. Mine is no longer really caused by a blockage, at least my GI doesn't think so, its more related to a mechanical problem I have since my resections. (Things move differently thru my system now)I have to make sure I eat every 2 hours or so or I can get really nauseous really quickly. I am suspecting the Pred is more than likely the culprit in your case. It does it to me too. The Ginger idea is a good one too. A old GI of mine told me about Ginger Altoids that help too. Those are recommended to pregnant women when they have morning sickness.

That's funny... I remember when I was having nausea all the time, the doctors thought it was unusual for someone with Crohn's disease... //@.@\\'... *I don't get as nauseous anymore... since I've eliminated milk products from my diet...*
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Since my surgeries this year I feel nauseaus a lot. After my ostomy I had abscesses in my abdomen that when they went in for the reversal they actually had to scrape my abd walls down to rid it of the infection. Since my reversal I have vomited 2 times once was within a month post op the other was this morning.

After my ostomy Sx I was nauseous a lot but I actually didnt vomit until one day a banana I ate didnt agree, that was in april the week of the 21st. Today I ate a banana for the first time since then....granted I vomited many times between the 2 incidents ...but I vomited again , no visable banana but makes me want to turn those on my table into banana bread instead. They use to cause heartburn in me prior to having my gall bladder removed in 99 but besides that they were always a safe food for me
Dx with Crohn's 1987, symptoms as early as 1984.
Temp iliostomy February 2007, reversed June 2007, Ovarian cysts, migraines, allergies (incl food allergies) , oral allergy syndrome (diff than true food allergies), Asthma, Gall Bladder removed 1999, Inguenal hernia 1987

I am pretty much nauseous all the time. It is so hard to deal with. On one hand you feel like you are going to puke all the time but you know that eating might potentially make things better. I'm just scared to eat because since this DD I VERY easily puke. It is so annoying. I was on a date the other night and got nauseous. Great. I had to jump out of the car and run around the side of a building to puke. When I came back my date asked if I was ok. Thank GOD his dad has CD so he totally understands!
I take phenergan when my nausea is TOTALLY out of control. Phenergan makes me really zoned out. If I take just a half of a pill it doesn't do much. If I take a whole pill I sleep for 2 days. I think I'm going to have to ask for some zofran next time I see my GI. I'm hoping that starting Remicade soon will also help with my nausea. Has anyone had success with that?

Currently 3 x per day 1000mgs Pentasa, Entocort (3mgs), Prilosec, multi vitamin, biotin, Lortab, Librax (for spasms) & VSL#3 (for probiotics) or activia yogurt.

Preparing to start Remicade because I am steroid dependent now.

Hey, me, too! I'm nauseated a lot of the time, and it's kind of a relief to know that so many of you are, too. I haven't taken anything for it, but I'm reaching the point where I may want to. I really really hate the nausea.

I have trouble with the nausea, too. I try ignore it as much as possible and then sip on COLD peppermint water (Metromint) to help it if it's really bad. My doctor gave me metoclopramide to help it, but I don't like the way it makes me feel. Hope you feel better!

Hey Opossumgirl, I can't take the Reglan (metoclopramide) either, makes me feel like I want to jump out of my skin. Gives me the heebie-jeebie's. Ask your doc about Zofran, it works great for the nausea, but doesn't make you loopy.

I was almost never nauseous until about a year and a half ago, now all the time. When I said something to my GI in the city he said that nausea wasn't all that common in CDers, Ha I don't believe that. What I find strange is that my presentation of symptoms would change so drastically after almost 20 years. I still believe that they will eventually find that all of my gastritis issues were CD in the stomach that just wasn't showing on biopsy and that is why I am nauseous all the time.

As for how to deal with it, I'm at a loss. I take Zofran, Tigan both orally and suppository but sometimes none of those work and I end up worshiping the porcelain god. YUCK!

CD 19 years offically, 29 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Symptoms constantly but all tests show only minor ulcerations. Currently having multiple episodes of gastritis with no known cause.

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....

Another thought is maybe the Protonix isn't working as well for you anymore. I had it quit working for me and had to change to another Proton Pump Inhibitor and things improved. Just a thought!
