Well, I'm STILL nauseous! I haven't used my breathing machine for about 4-5 nights, and it doesn't seem to make a difference. I'll call the Internist tomorrow, and I might call my ENT too. This just isn't making any sense to me. Sometimes eating makes me nauseous, and sometimes it takes it away for awhile.
I've been eating spoonfuls of sugared ginger every day, and sometimes that helps and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes Pepto Bismol helps, and sometimes not.
I'm sure the internist will order a CT scan, since my colonoscopy was normal, and I'm still occasionally having those small left-sided pains. I've had tons of upper GI problems in the past 10 years, but its not bad right now......which confuses me. I still haven't ruled out a hormone problem. I also still suspect something to do with my having come off my beta blocker in December. I think I have too many beta adrenergic receptors in places they shouldn't be.
Can I have a gastric ulcer without any pain?? Would a hiatal hernia show up on a ct scan? I am so bummed out about this. I'm so tired of this old bag of bones not behaving itself.
Its hard to determine if I'm nauseous from the dizziness, or visa versa, since they are so closely twined together.
Can you get severe nausea from gall bladder, but have no pain?? My body is wired so differently than alot of peoples, so I guess anything is possible with it.
Its will be soooooo much fun to get over this nausea!!
Hi CathyA- so sorry to hear that you're feeling badly. I laughed when I read Canyon's "i hate to sound like a broken record"- BTW Canyon, you don't! Keep sharing your info. It is very valuable for us. Anyhow, here I go with my 'broken record' routine :) Nausea is and was my main symptom. Always has been and I have been through 101 tests, all negative. I made small changes along the way including ginger (thanks Canyon!! :) ) capsules and tea, eating soluble fiber first with any meal (compliments of Heather VanVorous's book, 'Eating For IBS'), watching my diet, etc. All helped a bit. However, by far and wide, acpunture has helped the most. I have been meaning to write about it, but haven't made myself sit down long enough to do it. I know it costs money and I realize some people can't spare it. Acupunture is the treatment of choice in Russia for nausea and it, over a period of several weeks, helped me tremendously. Time will be the true teller of whether or not it will do it for the long run. Try this if nothing else works (if you are able). dont' give up. Good luck and I will check back in to see how you are doing.
PS- Nausea sucks!
