I get nauseous a lot! My doc thinks i have IBS but almost everything I've read about IBS says most of the symptoms are lower abdominal cramping, bloating, diarrhea and or constipation. I do get diarrhea every once and a while, maybe once a week. but get nauseous or queasy nearly every day. I also cant stop burping. Any one else have this?

Hi,

I used to get this too - saw your other post about burping.  Have you tried pamine forte?  I've been on it for awhile, and had tried stopping it for a bit because my doc thought it might be contributing to something else (dry eyes/mouth).  I stopped it and was in constant pain because of the gas.  Started back up and the gas pains stopped.  Also, have you had a gastric emptying study (you eat some radioactive eggs and they watch how fast it moves through your stomach).  Delayed gastric emptying caused me to feel naseous all the time (plus regurgitate most of what I ate)...i take domperidone + a digestive enzyme to help with gastric motility and my nausea is a lot better.  There are lots of other explanations too, but it might be worth asking your doc for the test if you haven't explored it yet.

mbw, you mentioned lots of vitamins. Are you sure it is not some of the vitamins making you nauseated? They really do a number on me. I have slow motility also but my nausea is usually early in the AM. I also take domperidone but not all the time. It is not available in the US, only Reglan is and it is having all kinds of lawsuits over it now and the side effects. If you check out the two drugs you will see the side effects are similar so I have cut my domperidone down. I find that ginger helps with nausea as does plain old Pepto Bismol. I think if I had it every day I would check out gall bladder as that can cause nausea, bloating and gas probably more than anything. I would also suggest cutting out all dairy for a week and see if it helps with the gas and nausea. My nausea is always from gas.

Hi Canyon,
 
Thanks for the suggestions...my nausea is actually improved, I was just trying to give some suggestions to KKpuppy.  All of your suggestions are valid, but at least for me probably not the root of my problem.  The nausea started before I was taking any vitamins or other meds for that matter and has continued to get better/resolved as I add each new one.  It's always possible that some of my meds, vitamins or supplements make the nausea worse, but I don't think think it's the case.  I order domperidone from Canada - I tried Reglan and personally couldn't function on it (also tried some anti-nausea meds, like Zofran, which didn't do anything) ...I get extremely drowsy from Reglan....I know of at least one other person with that reaction, but plenty of others who tolerate it fine...I think it's a personal decision as to which is best for you...looking at info online about the lawsuits, there does appear to be some risks, but I'm willing to accept those to improve my day to day functioning.  My gallbladder was taken out before my nausea started (it stopped working), so, again, not the answer for me.  Depending on the states of various conditions I've cut out dairy (the longest stretch was 3 years), again with little help.  I had stopped dairy again a week or two before the gas pains started...there was a direct correlation to the gas starting and stopping the pamine forte (it also stopped as soon as I started taking the pamine forte again), so until i find the root cause, the pamine forte helps me.  The few days that I was off pamine forte, I tried a variety of otc antacids, ginger and anything else I could think of, but it wasn't until i took the pamine forte that the gas pains went away.  I think the bottom line is that there are lots of possible problems that could cause the same symptoms and lots of potential solutions that should be explored.

I have been given a number of drugs like that but never that one. Is that available in the US? I have had Bentyl, Hyosycomine and one other that I can't remember but have never known anyone that was prescribed Pamine Forte.

Hi Canyon,
 
Pamine Forte is available in the US - when I have an alternative that works for me, I stick with FDA approved meds.  The generic name is methscopolamine bromide and there's a lower dose version (2.5 mg vs. 5 mg) that goes by Pamine).  Given that most of my non-GI docs ask me what Pamine Forte is, I'm guessing that's it not too common, but I do know of a handful of other people who have taken it.  The fact sheet for Pamine Forte can be found at the following website:
 
about 10 years ago I had taken Hyosycomine (I'm not familar with Bentyl).  From what I recall, the two drugs work pretty similarly.  When I took Hyosycomine my only symptom was pain and that was somewhat infrequent (maybe a few times a week).  As a result, it was presribed to me on an as needed basis.  It may have just been the way in which I was prescribed the Hyosycomine, but I took that as a reactionary measure once I experienced the pain.  I take the Pamine Forte each morning, which prevents the pain.

hi i'm diagnosed as ibs, but i still have to get confirmation diagnoses through gastroscopy because of indigestion that developed last week. at first the gi doctor said to cancel gastroscopy but when i told him that my no2 has peaces of food like carrots in it, he reschedulted the gastroscopy for next week...
i think the following tests is that i had actually to do and have to do with ibs to rule out other deseases are as those i did:
colonscopy
being a woman with anovulatory cycles i had to do a CA125 and i also did 4 tvus and a pelvic/breast exam. (not mammograpy since i'm only 32)
a smear test
blood tests include: kidneys, cbc, esr, crp, cpk, tsh thyroid
pelvic/abdominal ultrasounds (as an inpatients emergency in hospital)
all were normal
i asked for a laparoscopy but the gynecologist thought it's crazy if the transvaginal ultrasounds (4) of which all are normal, and CA125 is only 4.
do i need to ask the doctors to do more tests other than gastroscopy? i'm not sure, but it seems
even in the past when i had the fibro like pain, i did emg, neuro exam, reflexes of which all are normal, and visited over 100 gp lol...i had fibro but now it seems it eased, ibs is the worst coz of constipation mainly and stomach /colon spasms after eating. i have a friend with the same symptoms but has diharrea she was diagnosed with celiac...
i forgot to mention i did the calicum test.., it was also normal. i was told to ease ibs is to take sometime off work, and spend sometimes in a holiday resort...that woudl be great only if itake like whole weeks of relaxing and not thinking maybe , easing stress is the only solution to fight ibs..?

I also have been diagnosed with ibs but my worst symptom is chronic nausea and excessive gas. I do have occasional diarhea and or constipation but not as bad as the nausea.
I too take domperidone for the nausea and colpermin (peppermint oil capsules) for the ibs which help a little but i never seem to go a full week without the nausea!
I thought the docs were at a loose end diagnosing ibs after suffering for 5 years but all other tests proved negative.  I was baffled as to why the nausea was so bad as it is not a main symptom of ibs. 
Relieved to see other people with the same symptoms. Will be interested to her if anybody has more advice of keeping the nausea at bay besides reducing stress levels. Life in my household is quite stressful having a 15 year old daughter, 5 year old autistic son and a lively 3 year old daughter!
The nausea is so bad i have some days where i cannot function as well as i would like to as a mother, it is so debilitating!

I was just diagnosed with IBS C and my symptoms were,nausea,excessive gas and excessive bloating. I take Peppermint Capsules because it aids with,nausea and bloating. Anti-depressants are a lot of times prescribed to help regulaye the bowls and bloating.I take amitiza 24 MCG that my doctor prescribed and am now regular and my bloating has reduced a lot. I take it with Miralax.
