Hey everyone,
 
Firstly, would like to apologise as all I have done on this forum lately is moan!  I am going through a bit of a rough patch stomach wise and feeling fed up. 
 
I thought I had a tummy bug a few days ago as I had a day where I had extremely loose ribbon like stools where I went all day long.  Then came the nausea so immediatley though I had a bug.  I havent actually been sick, just feel it and its horrible.  My bowels are fine now and the ribbon like stools have gone.  I cant stand feeling sick and my whole stomach feels horrible.  I'm such a wimp.  I have to go to work tomorrow and have a 9 hour shift so I am worrying I won't feel well too.
 
Sorry for rambling and going on.  I hate having nausea.  When I go to sleep on a night, it goes away and then when I wake up...returns again.  Yuk!  Anyone else ever suffer with bouts of nausea?

Yep - every day of my life! But at least I know what is causing mine. Can you ask your doc for some phenergan or compazine to have on hand when the nausea hits? Also, I've had decent results with the over-the-counter remedy called Emetrol, so you might want to give that a try. Yet another homeopathic remedy for nausea is, of all things, orange juice. The emetrol works on this same principal of adding the citric acid to your stomach that helps neutralize the stomach acid. Sounds weird I know, but my grandfather was an old-school pharmacist who knew all kinds of homeopathic remedies that actually work - wish he would have written them down before he died! Anyway, sometimes just slowly sipping on some OJ will help out.

Hey Victoria,
Sorry you're battling nausea. I get that A LOT. I know they say carbonation is not good for IBS, BUT Gingerale seems to help me quite a bit when I'm feeling nauseous. I'm also an avid tea drinker for that. Ginger tea is gross (in my opinion) but it works wonders if you can choke it down. If not, Lemon Grass, Fennel, Chamomile and Mint teas work great for me too. You know, I've heard they make ginger gum... maybe if you could get your hands on a pack you could get through work tomorrow.
A few weeks ago I think I had a similar bug you had/have. I was super ill though... I had major D, a fever, lots of nausea, and I would have been puking had there been food in me. I sipped on tea and watery gatorade, and I managed to force down a few saltines. All you can do is rest and ride it out.
I hope you feel back to normal real soon...

Thanks for your replies. I was unsure whether I had a bug or not but my stools were real wierd and thin and I kept needing to rush to the loo. But it wasnt what I called 'proper' diahorea in the sense that it wasnt watery.

Lovely what we talk about isnt it!!

Thanks for your suggestions, I ll give them a go. I just hate feeling sick so much. Ive managed to eat some chicken and potato tonight and i feel a little better for acyaully eating somthing although I have no appetite.

Can IBS alone cause nausea?

I would have to say yes, IBS can cause nausea. I get it a lot. Some say, however, that it is the acid in our stomach that causes nausea (which isn't really IBS related). Lots of people with GERD or Acid Reflux are incredibly nauseated.
Anyhow, I think that anytime one has digestive issues they may have nausea too... both go hand in hand with me.

Ginger capsules work the best for nausea. You can get them anywhere and they work very fast. I go thru periods where I have nausea when I wake up in the morning and sometimes into the day but the ginger halts it quite quickly. Good for sea sickness also. You can also eat ginger snaps or ginger candy or just chew on ginger. I like the capsules.

Victoria,
Just a quick reminder... Most IBSers cannot handle apples. Apple juice especially can cause major gas cramps. Unless you know it to be a "safe" food, I would be wary.
Same goes for milk... Lots of IBSers have a dairy sensitivity (not necessarily intolerance, just sensitivity). It has been known to trigger attacks.
While I'm at it, I might mention caffeine too. And alcohol. And fatty and deep fried foods. Oh, raw fruits and veggies too.

Sorry to be so negative. I just want to warn you of many of the triggers we have discussed here on the board.
