  I got very sick about a year ago. The onset was nausea. I vommitted several times and was in and out of the ER for 3 weeks. The vomitting lasted a few days aswell as the fever..so it leads me to believe that I had a terrible stomach flu. But something did not feel right. Even though I stopped vommitting I continued to be sick as a dog with INTENSE nausea for 3 months! I had to quit my job temporarily. EVERY doctor just said i had the flu! after months the intense illness subsided but EVER SINCE that my body has never been the same. I experienced INTENSE panic attacks from being so scared from feeling nauseated. I get nauseated before and after I go #2(which most of the time I am in the bacthroom for a half hour EVERY TIME I HAVE A BOWEL MOVEMENT! ). Sometimes IT last a few min sometimes it last maybe an hour. it dictates my life. And while trust me nothing was as bad as when i was sick last year and i know other people have it much worse...its very annoying and at times scary. I hate feeling wiped, shaky, nauseated everyday. I am literally frightened of my own bowels because I know it leads to queeziness for a while. OH by the way I went to doctor after doctor and they ran blood test (celiac, chrones, endoscopy, colonoscopy...etc...all came back normal!!!) All they diagnosed me with was IBS. The only way I can calm my body from the wiped nauseated feeling is to take anxiety meds or anti nausea which i try very rarely i dont want to become dependant. I sometimes feel like I am the only one. I try to get to the root of the prob. What caused it how I can attack it naturally.
 
Thanks

Sorry about your troubles. It sounds like the doctors have found the root of your problem already. Your severe illness last year has resulted in an anxiety condition. If you get relief from the anti-nausea or anxiety meds, take them. If you take them as prescribed for a while, your mind might relax and you can break the cycle. Wish I had other suggestions but I don't. Perhaps someone else will.

I have had Crohnes for the past 15 years. While I have had my small intestine resected and been on a ton of meds, I didnt go into remission until I got outof my stressful life and stopped taking the meds. I have been in remission for 3 years now but lately I have started every time I have a bowel movent (and its always diarrea)I feel sick, weak and have cramps for up to 2 hours. If it was just once a day it would be tolerable but I have anywhere from 8 to 15 BM's a day. What could be going on?

BSU- I am so sorry to hear that. I can understand how you could think if it was only once a day it would be manageable....because mine is slightly maneagable and it still drives me crazy. IT makes me never want to have my own children. Have you seen a holistic doctor? I have not been I am trying to check into that now.

ItsTime, no I havent seen a holistic dr.not even sure we have anything like that around here as I live in a pretty small town. I just didnt know if I should go get it checked out. Im always so worried about coming out of remission. I never want to go thru all the pain and sickness I went thru before.

It's Time, you are NOT alone.

I had probably the most severe GI illness/flu/food poisoning of my life in 2010. It left me with constant nausea and dizziness. The Dr. suspected my gallbladder was the problem, so out it came, but the nausea, and the feeling like I was on a boat all the time, stayed. I lost 25 lbs in 6 weeks because I was too nauseated to eat.

I was tested for celiac, H.Pylori, had an endoscopy, blood tests... and was finally diagnosed with IBS. I take Questran to control the D, which was a miracle for me after the gallbladder came out. Controlling the D was a huge help in controlling the nausea.

But still, I experience nausea (especially in the evenings) a few times a week. I am always nauseated if I'm having a D-day. Sometimes I will wake up at night with severe nausea and the urge to have a bm, the nausea generally fades after I've gone to the bathroom, but it can take an hour or so. If I have what I refer to as a "night poop", it always always comes with the horrible nausea.

I brought all this up with my gynecologist, who has historically been my most thoughtful and effective health care provider, and he suggested that my Vagus nerve might have been damaged during the awful vomiting sickness I had in 2010. I still don't know if that's really what the problem is. There's no test for it. He did say it would probably heal, but that nerves take a long time to heal - like years.

The good news is I am much better than I was - it has slowly been improving. The dizziness is rare now, I only get the "on a boat" feeling around my menstrual cycle and even then it's not every month.

However the nausea persists. I count myself lucky as I have no troubles with pain, but the nausea is exhausting and demoralizing. I too get some relief from anti-anxiety meds (Ativan), but only take a half dose a couple times a week because of its addictive nature.

This morning I began adding soluble fiber to my diet. Hopefully it helps, I've read good things about it. I also keep a lot of ginger gum on hand, and that helps with the nausea. I get it at CVS, the brand is Sea-band. Daily light exercise really helps too - I do a yoga or low impact aerobics DVD usually.

My issues continue to be a mystery, I try to work with and around them as best I can. I just wanted to you know I have had a similar experience to yours, and that you aren't alone.

Hi there. I suffered from this for months - funnily enough after I had a vomiting bug, every time I went to the toilet id have severe nausea which would make me gag and I used to get really anxious because of it, which made it worse. The doctor tried to label it off as IBS but I eventually went and got my own tests done for food intolerances and turns out I was intolerant to wheat, gluten and dairy! After cutting them out the problem almost disappeared! However I never had any of this till after the stomach bug, apparently the bug can damage your system meaning your body can't absorb certain nutrients as well anymore. So who knows these intolerances may go away or they may not! But I tried to get to the root of this problem for months and thank god I found out - without a doctors help!
