I am new to healingwell.com. I have been posting on the fibro board, cause that is my main ailment. Lately I have been having morning nausea, sometimes with actually sickness. Once I get up and move around it subsides, and usually after I get sick it will subside. I thought it could possibly be some of the meds I am on, but I haven't changed them recently. I have done this before. It will last a few months, and seems to get better and then I will feel it again a few months later. I didn't know if this has anything to do with indigestion, or heartburn. Sometimes I will wake up with some wicked heartburn. I will take some zantac for a little while and it will go away. Has anyone else had morning sickness without being pregnant?

In a morning, if i wke up naturally i'm fine, but if i wake up to an alarm early, i often feel sick and sometimes i actually am. i cannot eat and try to drink water, but it never goes down well. what is it? coz its driving me mad, its stopping me going to college and basically doing a lot of stuff. i am on medication, but it is very low medication and havent been on it for a fornight now and i still get the sickenss. i am also on the pill but again, it has very low hormone levels, my doctor thought it could be that, and therefore changed it to the one i am currently on. could you please email me if you have any answers anybody. supersexysaxgirl@hotmail.com thanx

I get sick in the mornings, too. I've never made a connection to morning sickness/pregnancy, but I'm a man. I know it's common to feel ill in the morning with GERD, but is really comparable to morning sickness? If I ever have kids, at least I'll be able to understand what my girl's going through...haha.

I am a male with Fibromyalgia, and I notice that if I wake up very early then I have morning sickness; however, if I wake up sometime after 8 or 9 AM then I am fine.  I cannot drink water without being sick.  It is horrible because I love to eat and drink coffee of a morning.  I wish I could figure out why or what causes it because my doctors and I have discounted my meds as the culprit.  Hope someone else can help to find a solution.

Just one experience, maybe not yours, but it happened to me. I strained my back while miving something in the garage. I went to the Doc and he prescribed Soma,a muscle relaxer that has codeine in it. I was going to school, and bottle came with warning not to drive, so I could only really take it a night when I wasn't going to be driving. It took it at night, and then I started having "morning sickness" that came every morning. Like you, I got a pregnancy test, not pregnant, found out I had an allergy to codeine. When I stopped taking the meds at night, the "morning sickness" stopped. My Doc just wrote a different prescription and I was fine. Good Luck!

Hmmm... I have the morning sickness as well. I've had it for a couple of years as well :( I know that it is related to my GERD. Much of it to my sleep as well. Like others have said, if I wake up naturally, I'm okay. If something else wakes me up - no good :(

No painkillers here - I rarely take them.

Sometimes I can go for a month without feeling that nausea. But sometimes it lasts for months. It was definitely worse when I was on omeprazole. It seems like that wasn't strong enough for me. I have less frequent issues with Aciphex. Thank goodness for my doctor who fought to get me the Aciphex - darn insurance companies!

I never heard of "morning sickness" related to GERD. I'll have to keep my eye out for my husband if he starts to have it, I can tell him, others experience the same, not extrodinary.
 
Geez, someone has got to find out what this GERD, reflux stuff is all about. I did not know any such thing existed before, usually just heard of heartburn, people got Tums or Mylanta, but not this "could be for the rest of your life' stuff.
 
Now all the side effects from the PPI's, I don't see an end in sight.
 
Funny how there seems to be all these new diseases that never existed before. Is it our ife style, pollution, or drug companies? We can look into other universes, they can make babies in petrie dishes, but a good into someone's stomach is impossible? In an Anatomy class I learned that the stomach is just a holding container. The stomach doesn't digest, it adds stomach acid to the contents so that when it enters the intestine it can be digested.
 
How can a "holding container" cause so much trouble? Well, there's someone smart out there that can figure this out, I hope so anyway.

chrystalclr,
I too have fibro and have also exp this morning sickness. It definately reminds me of the constant miserable morning sickness I exp for approx 4 mo straight while pregnant many years ago. I would actually sometimes lie on the floor for relief, and was rx'd two(2) different powerful meds that didn't begin to relieve symptoms. This sickness with me is exp infrequently now, but will appear out of the blue at anytime of the the day, and I have to rush to the bed quickly for rest(sleep), which seems to help relieve symptoms.

I initially thought that my fibro symptoms were somehow connected to GERD for me, because sometimes the symptoms appear intertwined. Maybe, they just sometime feed off the other, don't know for sure. Or, maybe, the morning sickness symptoms are totally connected to GERD after reading post of GERD sufferers. Good info..........
 
I've been taking meds for GERD for approx 8yrs.

I hope the symptoms subside for you and others.

Huggs,
V

I'm a newbie to HealingWell.com and I too have GERD, IBS and what I think is a gall bladder problem. I'd suggest any of you have morning sickness to all look into all the aspects of a gall bladder being the source of your problem. I started out 8 years ago with diarrhea which was diagnosed as IBS. It has continued to go on 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week for 8 yrs, keeping me home bound. Then 2 months ago I had a terrible attack of pain in the same area as the GERD, with nausea, and throwing up (something I almost never do). After a weekend of horrible pain I went to my Dr. and she diagnosed GERD and put me on meds. It's now 2 moths later and I'm pretty much back on my feet from the attack and last week, after doing a google search on the net, I found this web site. From all the reading I've done on here, I'm now convinced that I also have a gall bladder problem. I've also come to the conclusion that my sludgy gall bladder may very well be the cause of my GERD and very possibly the main cause of my IBS. So, my suggestion is, ck out the info on gall bladder and see if there's a chance that your cause of nausea and GERD is a gall bladder or gall stones.

I've had the same experience and call it "morning sickness" myself. I haven't received a GERD diagnosis but it seems pretty certain, have an endoscopy scheduled later this month. Yesterday I had a burger/fries for lunch and felt pretty good all day but then felt ill this morning. I would have assumed if that food was a problem, I might have felt sick a few hours after eating, but I have to attibute my morning sickness dto my lunch. I find it dissipates a couple of hours after waking up. I try to eat something soothing like a banana or a plain bagel and find that helps. Sorry you're suffering with this on top of fibromialga - you poor thing! I hope you can find some relief with diet or a med.

2 of my sons (and also my deceased husband) who don't have gerd have a reaction of alcohol that was consumed at night. It can be as little as one beer or glass of wine. They wake up with a headache and also nausea. They say it feels like a hangover even tho the amount they drunk was minimal. Could this be your problem?   Tommi

You know it's funny you'd say that.  I'm 52 and noticed after being a moderate drinker that at 40 more than 1 glass of wine left me w/an intense a.m. hangover - headache and nausea.  I never thought this was GERD, just aging, but maybe...

For the last three weeks I have been waking up at about 5:30am every morning. At this time I have diarrhoea and nausea. Twice I have actually been sick.
My alarm is set for 6:10 but I never actually end up getting up at that time because I wake up before then due to feeling ill.
 
This has left me feeling really tired a lot of the time. However, by lunch time every day I feel better. This is after a long walk.
 
I have IBS and I'd just started college so I thought maybe I'd triggered it. But, it happens at weekends as well and has been going on for weeks.
 
I don't know what to do. I have diarrhoea every morning now but by the evening it almost disappears. I was used to getting it every day but not this bad because it's more painful than usual.
 
I find it hard to eat anything in the mornings which just makes me feel worse at college.

Hi,

I am new to the forum. I just had to write because I can't believe I have found it.  I have been searching the internet for years to find the answers to my 'morning sickness'. I thought I was the only one with it not being pregnant.  The gastro doctors have found nothing and don't even have any other patients with the same thing. And now I am so relieved that I am not the only one to have this and that it is not all on my head. I am also sorry that others have to suffer with the same thing. I have been having this morning sickness for about 10 years now. It started one day for no reason and was written off as stress and I have even seen a shrink about it who put me on valium for it saying it was stress but like my gastro she also has no other patients with the same thing. So I thought maybe it was crohn's since my youngest son has it and possibly my oldest son has it. I've had an endoscopy, an upper GI, which showed possible SMA and a test for SMA all negative.  It has come and gone sometimes staying for months and sometimes leaving for months but always comes back.  Now I am having it everyday. And like the other posts if I get up after 10 I am fine but if waken up and upon movement I get nauseated and do vomit almost everyday. Once I get sick it seems to go away for the day.  But before that, movement, odors or just about anything will make me sick. It is so hard going to bed every nite knowing that I am going to be sick in the morning but not knowing why or how to stop it. I have tried drinking something but that just comes up and forget eating just the thought of food in my mouth makes me gag. I have been on all the meds for nausea but none of them have worked. In the posts I didn't seem to notice any one mention the meds they are on for it or if anything has helped it go away or what they diagnosed with. Does everyone have GERD? Is that what is making you sick in the mornings? I have not been diagnosed with GERD but will talk to my new gastro when I go next month.  But if anyone has any suggestions to help until I go to the gastro I would greatly appreciate it.

I am so relieved that I have found this site. I too have “morning sickness”. It started for me at 17 years old. When it did start I was terrified that I was pregnant. Many test proved I was not. I am approaching 30 and can only hope that it will go away. The morning sickness like others only happens when I do not wake up naturally. I too will vomit if I smell or see something unpleasant. Bless my husbands heart he can not cook anything in the morning because it will lead to me being sick. I can sometimes fight it but will feel horrible until lunch. Other mornings I will vomit and immediately feel better, then can go about my day like nothing happened. On the days that I wake up naturally are the days that I am thankful for. Other symptoms that I have experienced is an incredible pain in my lower back it can best be described as a throbbing pain, on days that occurs I will have very painful cramps leading to diarrhea. I sometimes wish that I could blame this on being pregnant because then this would be a matter of months rather than the almost 13 years that I have been suffering. Today was the breaking point for me, I keep barf bags from airplanes in the car just in case I need to pullover and use the bag, and I was trying to use the bag this morning and slightly missed. No need to explain further. I am determined to find a cure for this and when I do I will make a bracelet and share them with my fellow mates with “morning sickness”. I have not been diagnosed with anything yet . I am going to see a family friend who happens to be a gastroentologist. .I have done some searching and will keep the board informed with the findings.

The only thing that has worked for me is throwing up. Once I have cleared the acid/bile/bacteria, or whatever it is, the bad feelings go away. I can move on with my day and hope tomorrow morning will be better. As for the throbbing pain and the diarrhea I am still uncertain what this is and how to cure it. I am hoping to get a real answer soon because this is no way to live life.

Well--a lot of us have that symptom. My stomach doctor and my primary care doctor both said it is because if you are laying down the stomach acid slides up into your throat (and can actually go all the way up into your sinus cavities causing sinus infections and asthma). This will result in the "morning sickness feeling." They suggested crushing (not chewing) 2-4 gaviscon tablets in a cup, then swallowing these crushed meds (the idea is to get the gaviscon into your stomach before it starts foaming) and then drinking a glass a water before bedtime. This will create a foam cushion which can help keep the acid in the stomach.

Marburg~


Which symptom are you talking about? I appreciate the advise, I have tried all the OTC medication and nothing as of yet seems to help, i have taken them the night before, in the middle of the night and in the morning. I have never had a sinus infections and I do not have asthma. Any other suggestion?

Yet another person with this bizarre morning sickness problem.... I am male, so definately not pregnant. I have had numerous blood tests, gastroscopy, colonscopy and allergy skin prick testing. The significant results:

-I had a biopsy taken on my esophagus which showed eosinophilic esophagitus (EE).
-I had mild infammation of my esophagus and gastritis.
-I had mild neutropenia
-Small sliding hiatal hernia.

I took corticosteroids for about a month to treat the EE, and pariet to treat my heartburn. I then had a endoscopy to check if the inflammation had gone - there were no longer any eosinophils or gastritis (although my symptoms still weren't completely better). I then got another blood test and this time:

-Mild neutropenia
-Slightly low total white blood cell count
-Slightly low lymphocyte count.

The last two might be explained by corticosteroid use, but the neutropenia has been consistantly low. Does anyone else have this?

I am posting this as an update to finding a solution to having morning sickness and not being pregnant. I went to a gastroenterologist and they did an endoscopy on me after 3 weeks of being sick, the doctor was a family friend and I thought there would be a sense of urgency while dealing with me as a client. He found out that I had a swollen esophagus. Well I said to myself that I could have diagnosed myself with that. I have been throwing up almost every morning for the last three weeks. He diagnosed me with GERD sent me home with a prescription and sent me on my way. The prescription Zegerid did not work I was still sick in the morning and was not able to enjoy my life. After about a month I went back and told him that I was feeling no better and that things have not improved. He sent me home with another prescription told me to loose weight and push the fiber (not helpful at all) and since then I have not seen him since. I tried changing my morning routine, listening to soothing music in the morning, giving me more time to wake up, eating, not eating, drinking not drinking and still have no answers. For a while the routine change worked but low and behold the morning sickness returns. I am still unsure of the cause and was wondering if there might be a different type of doctor to go to? I am still lost and have no answers.

Hello, this is Kitt :-) .  wow, ok well I am so sorry you have had a scope and seen a physician who seems IMHO to be blowing you off.
 
Many things beside GERD could be causing your vomiting so I would like to suggest you find another physician and persue your problem.  Finding the underlying cause for your problem is key to helping you.  Please advocate for yourself and remember each person is different.
 
Gentle Hugs to you,

I know when my stomach is really upset whatever is in it likes to bubble up and make me burp rotten eggs type stuff and also Pass wind stinking up the whole area where I was at that point in time. It doesn't happen as often as it use to but it does still happen... Eewww

Hi.. just found this forum and I can sympathise with you all. I too have had similar symptoms for the past two years. Constantly sick in the mornings, and stomach pain. I've tried all sorts of things and basically live on Zantac but to little effect. It helps the discomfort but i'm still sick every morning. Have any of you considered a test for helicobacter pylori? http://www.helico.com/h_general.html
The symptoms seem to be consistent but obviously tests can confirm this. I personally am waiting for tests but im worried about an endoscope as im a singer and have heard that its possibly damaging to the vocal cords.

I have however found relief for the past weeks now by taking something I found in the mountains of Rhodes, Greece called Suoma. Its basically distilled grapes! A rather potent drink but i've not been sick in the morning for 7 days since taking a simple shot of it at night. Its strong stuff and id not suggest taking it in the day (before driving etc) or if you are on certain meds that discourage alcohol consumption. I'm no Doctor... but I know my body.. and I found this stuff by accident,.. but realised that i was no longer being sick after taking it.. (it was the only different thing id taken than usual).. I continued taking it and it seems to be working... There is still nausea but i feel it takes the edge off enough to deal with it.. not that Im at the stage to take breakfast though!! Possibly placebo effect.. but as i said id found it by accident and not been told it could at all help my symptoms. If you happen to be visiting Greece try and get some.. just take it easy... its strong stuff!

I'm still interested in helicobacter pylori and if anyone has been tested for this.

Let me know :-)

Good health!!

I too have this issue. Makes working in the mornings rough! I have been tested/treated for h. pylori. The treatment is not fun at all! I had to take 8 pills a day totalling 3000mgs. I'm sure that wasn't helping my gerd. And even after the treatment I don't feel any better.

Welcome to HealingWell and the GERD/Heartburn forum.
I hope your test for h-pylori are soon in so you know what or what not you are dealing with.
 
Thanks for the info re the grapes of Greece.  Interesting and I am glad you found something that is helping you.
Here is a thread re H-pylori from the IBS Forum that you may find interesting and helpful.
