I have been dealing with nausea for months now and it just seems to be getting worse. I have had my meds changes a few different times and nothing helps.  I finally (about 4 day ago)  stopped taking all my meds because I just couldn't handle the nausea any longer. Low and behold... it is STILL here and worse as ever.  Do any of you deal with this??? I swear I feel like I have the flu EVERY DAY!!!!  I have tried drinking ginger ale all day long... even quit drinking my coffee in the morning... still no relief!!! I see the reumy on monday, so I am going to see if he can give me anything for it... just wondered if this is a normal thing with Fibromites... I sure hope not!!! I can't deal with it much longer; it takes everything in me to stay at work all day!!!!! cry


Wishing everyone a great day, ((((hugs))))

You probably need to be evaluated by a GI doctor. Do make sure you keep your Monday appointment. Don't wait any longer to get this evaluated. My guess is that he may refer you. In either case, I sincerely hope you feel better soon. Nausea is a pain and I hate feeling like that also. I'm sorry you are experiencing this, my friend.

I, for one, have never had this symptom as a part of fibromyalgia, but that is my personal experience. Hope that helps.

Gentle Hugs!

Thank you Lindaloo....
 
I have addressed the nausea issue with my GP and it always gets blamed on my meds... that is why I just stopped taking them.  I guess I should word that differently... I slowly weaned myself off of them.. don't want confusion. : )  I guess there is that part of me that wants to blame it on the fibro because frankly I don't want anyting else wrong with me, yet I don't want it to be the fibro because then it means I may have to deal with this for a VERY long time!!!  I have dealt with it long enough...  can't handle it anymore!!!! cry I will have to agree with you nausea IS A PAIN!!!!  It makes it close to impossible to enjoy your day!!!!!
Wishing everyone a great day, ((((hugs))))

Yep, I have been nauseous nearly every day for over a year now. It's very frustrating and Ihave never found a way to manage it. I have even been to three diffrent GIs over the span of six months. They offered no help and no releif. Just hang in there, giner ale really is your best friend at this point. Take faith in the fact that you'll get used to it, just like everything else. Sorry I'm not more helpful!

I too experience the nausea quite a bit. I too figured it was likely the meds.

Check your blood sugar....I sometimes wonder about that.....?

Good luck and hang in there.

Orlo,
 
You poor thing!!!!  I will let you know what the reumy has to say about things after monday!!!  I can NOT imagine living with nausea for the rest of my life!!!! I eat in hopes that it will take it away... butthen it doesn't, you would think that I would learn... but nope... sure don't  just KEEP eating in hopes it will fix the problem.  Now it has just cause MORE problems!!!! You say that I will get use to it... I really don't think that I will EVER get use to it!!!  Thanks for the imput everyone.. always nice to get some insight on things!!!!  I think that I was just hoping that no one ha this problem and it was just soemthing else causing it.  I am not sure how to fix this problem, but I am determined to do so!!!
Wishing everyone a great day, ((((hugs))))

When I get nausea I eat a little something and it seems to subside.  I also have a little "concoction" that I have used for myself and for my children for nausea and it helps keep you from becoming dehydrated.  This has worked great for me for years.  Here it is.
 
For Nausea
 
1/2 cup gingerale
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon Karo Syrup  (Light or Dark)
 
Mix and take 1 tablespoon every ten minutes for 6 doses (if needed).  Then take every 20 minutes until 2-3 doses are retained and nausea stops.
 
 
I used this for my children for many years and now they make it for themselves.  It tastes good, too.  Actually, if this helps, you could mix it up and sip on it during the day.
 
Also, it is a symptom of fibro but I know it can be caused by other reasons.  That's what you have to find out.  But, here is a link from Fibromyalgia Symptoms that tells you all about it.  Hope this helps.  Let me know if it does, too!

Sherrine....
 
Too funny... I JUST got done reading taht same thing and then you posted it.. : ) 
 
I brought some DIET vernors to work with me and I drink that ALL day long.  It doesn't really help, but I keep telling myself it will.  I chose this to drink because I didn't want all the sugar.  I have gained a TON a weight in the past year and I just don't want to put even more on, ya know.  Plus I try my best to stay away from the sugars... both parnets are diabetic, soI would rather live a certain way NOW then pay for it later. 
 
I know when I was pregnant with my daughter, and had carbon monoxide poisoning, the doctor had given me some anti nausea medication (before he realized it wasn't the flu) and it worked GREAT.  I think I am going to check with the rheumy on mon to see about getting some.  I am not even sure that they can give you that for long term use or not.  We will have to see.  Thank you for the help...

I get nausea a lot too but if it is chronic I would suggest you get it checked out by a GI. I have gastroparesis (my stomach muscles don't work right sometimes) so we can't always assume everything is fibro related. I'm not saying that it's not fibro related or that you might have something like gastroparesis but if it becomes a chronic problem it might be something that needs to be checked out.
 
luv and hugs

I used to only get nauseous if I were sick w/ the flu, pregnant, or when my gallbladder acted up. I don't have the flu, and I've had gallbladder removed and hysterectomy. I spend MOST of each day so sick to my stomach. I had been given some med by my dr over   1 1/2 yrs ago, it wasn't that helpful. She then gave me Reglan to help w/ the nausea. I can take up to 4 pills a day, if necessary. I try to use mint or cinnamon gum first, if it persists I use the Reglan - 1 pill at a time.  I don't care for ginder ale, but I have resorted to that when I have the flu. At that point it tastes like the nectar of the gods. lol  I would suggest you ck this out w/ the rheumy or a gastro. I have several rx left on my Reglan, hopefully, the dr will realize that the nausea doesn't just magically disappear and will give you a real rx.

I hope you get some help, it is one of the most unbearable symptoms of FMS.

Good Luck on your appt.

God bless.  Alice.

Thanks for the input Alice...  I wasn't sure about the whole anti nausea meds... likeI said I only took them when I was pregnant and had carbon monoxide poisoning. I will mention that to the Rheumy as long as I am there.  Hopefully it will save me a trip to the GI... I am SO sick of going to dr. after dr, and getting NO WHERE!!!!  I am a working mother and do not have the time or money for all of that!!!! 
 
You are SO right... I just told my fiancee that "the pain I  can handle... just can't take the nausea!!!"  I can even take the migraines over this!!!!! 
 
Reglan... writting it down now!!! : )

I get nauceous when I am flaring sometimes & I use Tums to help it.  It is not chronic so I usually don't worry too much about it.  My daughter has had chronic nausea since she was 5.  The Dr said to give her 1 TBLS of Maalox every hour as needed.  She basically lived on it & we restricted her diet during really bad times.  Now she is on Nexium & has, for the first time in her life, no nausea & no stomach pain & acid reflux.  She had them all.  So, this may be an answer for the symptoms.  I hope your Doctor finds out what is happening with you.  Many hugs, Denise
