I feel nauseous almost every morning too but it started when I started taking zoloft so I'm guessing it's one of the side effects. Also, I don't know what kind of pain you feel in your stomach but I have stomach problem with acid. This happens every time I stress out and it involves food My pain is sharp and is right under my chest bone. But if you have burning feeling in your stomach and chest area it might be heartburn.

Hope you feel better soon. =)

ask doc for some tummy calming meds

nausea or dry retching on waking is common and associated with depression, from fears and worries about having to face the new day

Thanks you guy's.

And ((((HUGS)))) back to you all.

No Ms Kittie there is NO chance I could be pregnant. I am thinking after a little research this might have to do with GERD. However Harry facing my can sometimes be just a real downer. Just hate waking up to that sick feeling.

Dillon,

I also wake up feeling sick, think it is more anxiousness than anything and usually it does pass in a few hours, I too am waiting to wake up feeling good. don't worry you are not alone and I'm sure this will be all behind us before we know it.

lots and lots of hugs to you.

here's to better days.

I was just looking for reasons why I would feel SO sick every morning. And it is every morning. I can't quite figure it out. When I found this site I was like wow..

Again, hate to shill...but look at my blog. I dealt with this every morning for a very, very long time. I usually went to bed with it, too. I also have GERD, but GERD is made MUCH worse by anxiety. When I started treating my anxiety, my GERD calmed down a whole, whole lot.

Anxiety does its best to wreak havoc in my stomach. Anti-nausea meds never worked at all. The only thing they ever did was make me tired.

I am new here and am suprised to see so many others feeling like I do every dang morning. I wake up way too early, sick as can be, and stressed to the max too. Once I am up, I slowly start to feel better, but I don't know what is causing this at all. I was taking some pain meds for awhile due to my broken tailbone, but even before I ran out this started. So I don't think it is withdrawls. I go to bed fine, relaxed, no problem. But as soon as the sun comes up, it's like my body and my brain freak out..."Oh my God- another day another day!" I am so nausious, and nervous, and just feel terrible. I am 33 years old, and have two beautiful babies ages one and two. Why would this happen to me each morning? I went to the doctor and she gave me protonix which hasn't helped, and also wrote me a scrip for low dose prozac to help with anxiety. But I don't konw if that will help me. It's like I have a panic attack in the morning due to the pain in my tummy- not the other way around. I am still in pain and need ot take naprxen, or ibuprofen, or tylenol or SOMETHING because I hurt so much, and am afraid that the meds will aggravate it even more. I have no appetite, and though my stomach is empty and hungry, my brain is completely turned off to food. I know no one here can do anything about it, but it is nice to be able to talk about it with people who may understand. Thanks for listening!------

Hi, LiveGirl, and welcome. I'm glad you found this forum, as it's been a very supportive place for many of us. There's a thread for new members where you may want to introduce yourself, but I'm sure others will find you here just as I did.

Your situation has some similarities to mine - not the physical symptoms, but the fact that the anxiety feels like it comes on *after* some physical symptom has sprung up for some other reason. In my case, it was shortness of breath due to acid reflux that would happen, and then I'd panic from struggling to breathe, but all my ER visits just produced a diagnosis of anxiety. Finally, I did find a doctor who could tell me what was really happening, and my panic attacks have greatly diminished.

*If* you have some form of digestive problem, here's what I've learned:

1) A GI doctor should look at you, not just your regular doctor. You may want to followup with an ENT also if you're concerned about reflux. (GI doctors and ENTs study different parts of your body, so one might tell you you're perfectly fine while the other finds a problem, which is what happened to me.)

2) The dosage of medication that you take depends very much on what kind of problem you have. For instance, a single Protonix per day didn't work for my reflux, but two do.

3) Physical discomfort, bodily sensations or movements, or just fears from your digestive issues *can* be the cause of anxiety and panic attacks. My ER docs always considered them *symptoms*, not causes, and that delayed my getting both issues properly treated.

Good luck to you, and keep posting!

Thanks so much for the reply...I do so want to have a second opinion and a more detailed workup, as once again today, I was so miserable. At first, it was just mornings, and now it is creeping well into the day. But I have never had depression or anxiety before the onset of the symptoms, and so I can relate to what you went through with doctors chalking it up to a mental disorder. I believe that the body is such an intricate balance, and that when one thing is off kilter, it can effect so many other things too. Living with chronic pain hasn't helped, and part of it may have stemmed from the hopeless feeling of wondering if I could ever get through the day without pain medication. The narcotics always worked the best of course, but also scared me because of the dependency potential, and I do believe that I was depending on them to help me get through the day. My tolerance was getting high, and it was nearly impossible to find a doctor to prescribe them to me. I think that some of the "anxiety" part of my stomach aches were due to worrying about taking them or not taking them. The funny thing is though, that they were the only medicine that ever got RID of my sotmach ache instead of causing it like it can. But I am not taking them now, and was relieved to be "done with them" in my mind, and the horrible stomach in the morning still lingers, and is worse than ever. I have crappy insurance, and due to my kids, only a few hours in the week that I can get away, so that has prolonged my getting help. Wish me luck getting through until I will feel better. Did you take the protonix two at a time, or twice a day? I was only given samples of 40mg, but I do go back to the primary care doctor next week. Have you ever tried prozac for anxiety? I don't suffer from anxiety all of the time, and I wish they could give me something just for onset attacks and not something that I have to take every day that will effect me all of the time. I just don't always trust doctors. Or what they diagnose. Thanks for your help!!!!!!--------

Hi!

My type of reflux is LPR (short for laryngopharyngeal reflux), and the standard treatment for it seems to be one pill twice a day. I take a 40 mg Nexium before dinner and a 300 mg Zantac before bed. It has helped a lot. Be careful about comparing to my story or anyone else's though. For instance, I never had nausea or an upset stomach or any kinds of problems besides breathing issues. You could well have something very different going on. Regardless, it sure does upset you when you can't get any answers about health concerns, so anxiety's a pretty natural partner when you're sick and the doctors don't know why.

I have taken some of the fast-acting anti-anxiety meds as needed but also take Paxil daily - for depression, but it helps with anxiety too in my case. Others here have more experience with meds and will likely be along soon.

Good luck, and hang in there!

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  I think you got a really good answer from Peacesoul.  A good check up with your PCP is called for to rule out any medical problems in my opinion.  I also know that I too have woken with the the dread and anxiety, but I have not had the nausea.

Keep posting and welcome again to our HealingWell Family

It's so nice to find you all here on this forum.  Just talking to someone who may understand helps alot.  We all have one thing in common- wanting to feel better, be better, and live better!  I go back on Friday for my lab results and hopefully some more tests.  I really feel like this anxiety is a symptom of the stomach pain, and not the other way around.  I just hope I don't have an ulcer or something more serious.  It's hard when you are in pain, but naproxyn or ibuprofen or tylenol hurts your  stomach.  What to do?  I don't want to aggravate it any worse, but I also can't stand the pain if I take nothing.  I so wish there was a miracle cure.  The doctor seemed to think that there is no quick fix, and no matter what, I will have to be patient with treatment.  That's much easier said than done when you feel so crummy and yet have so many things to do in a single day.  Just taking care of my girls who are one and two is so much work, that getting around to much needed laundry and housework nearly feels impossible.  I know that once I can get on top of it all I may feel a bit better.  I just need some strength to do it!  Thanks everyone!

I've been searching the internet for weeks trying to find an answer.  This web site is the closest thing I've found.
 
I have a 15 yr old son.  He's always eaten breakfast in the morning and about a year ago he said he couldn't stomach breakfast anymore.  After a few months that changed to nausea in the morning and occassionally he said he would vomit in the morning. 
 
Then summer came and he slept in until about 11am to noon everyday and he would feel fine.  Sometime he would wake up early because the dogs would bark and he would have the nauseas feeling.  If I took the day off work and we would wake up early to go do something fun, he would be nauseas until around midday.
 
Then school started and it got much worse.  He's had serious nausea and dry heaving to the point of vomiting blood once because he was retching so violently.  I've taken him to a gastroenterologist and so far all his blood work has come up negative, he is not lactose intolerant, his endoscopy was normal (including biopsies).   
 
Next he's scheduled for an ultrasound on his kidney's and gall bladder. 
 
He does have proteinuria and is taking lisinopril for this but no signs of kidney disease.  He's stopped the lisinopril until we can get this under control.  He's missed a lot of time at school but it's all been excused because he's seeing doctors.
 
Of course we've considered anxiety but would he have anxiety even on days he was getting up early to do something fun he loves to do????
 
He's incredibly bright with a superior IQ but he is dyslexic.  He's had 3 years of the Wilson Reading program and it's made incredible improvements in his reading ability.  He still spells horribly but it doesn't really matter.  His IOWA test rate him at college level even though he was only in 8th grade when he was tested.  He's incredibly bright, sensible and mature for his age but very quiet and restrained.  
 
He's in honors and advanced classes by his choice and he plans to go onto college.  He had all his classes planned out for high school.  He's a really great kid!  But I'm sick from the misery he's experiencing about every morning.
 
He's been on Prevacid for a couple of weeks and it helps a little bit but not much.  It makes the difference between retching uncontrollably and major nausea.
 
Any help anyone can give me would be appreciated.

vintage,

You may want to read through the GERD/heartburn forum.  He could be having issues related to GERD.

The esophageal pH probe study has become the gold standard for measurement of acidity with GERD because it if the most sensitive and specific test for reflux.

Just my 2 cents tossed in here. idea

Dear Livegirl,
I read your posts and I felt like you are describing me. I have the same problem. Everyday almost. I have two small children and I need to be the best to give them my all. I have normal worries but those normal worries effect me differently. I have been tested for everything and finall a solution came it was xanax the only thing is that it is addictive so I am not returning to it. I have now been prescribed Busbar and axiety medicine at its lowest dose so I will let you know if it works.
 
Our mind is very strong and something little can casue great physical discomforts. I found forcing my selff to take a brisk walf on my street helped but I have to do it right when I wake up. I believe that all my worries get balled up in my stomach and the nausea is a way for my body to tell me that I need to get those worries out. It is hard to find people that understand that you can be completely truthfull with but if you can it helps.

Hey there! I'm know sooo well how your feeling!  I too USED to wake up every morning sicker than a dog!  I suffer from GERD, dyspepsia, hiatel henia and reflux.  Top that off with anxiety. A beautiful combo first thing in the a.m.! I will add that on top of taking an antidepressant, my doc put me on Prevacid for my gut and Ativan for my most anxious days.  I must say, after I was able to calm down with the Ativan (which didn't happen over night) my stomach issues started to ease up.  I no longer have that problem on a daily basis.  Only on bad anxiety days do I wake up w/gut problems and feeling really sick to my stomach.

You will get better! Try to calm your worries and dreads.  I'm sure you'll get to feeling better.

Hi. I'm an 18 male, and for quite a while now (probably as long as I can remember), I've woken up almost every day nauseous. I'm not depressed... I'm not anxious... I don't know what's wrong with me. Some days it's mild and controllable, but some days (like today), it's crippling. I can't stand it. I haven't seen any doctors and don't plan on. It's not where I'm sleeping because it happens when I sleep in my bedroom or anywhere else in my house. I don't take any medications so that's also not a possibility. It's gotten worse in the past 2 months and really any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello and welcome to HealingWell. There are many disorders that may cause nausea and anxiety is one of them.

If your not willing to go to a physician or explore further options within the medical field to find out what your problem may be there is not a lot we have to offer other then support for what you are going through.

We are not medical professsionals and cannot dx. However I do wonder if your reason for not seeing a physician is the fear of finding out something is wrong and you think it may be life altering?

Have you talked with your family or any support people in your life re your nausea?

I do hope this nausea passes.

Take care and know we are here for all.

Hi everyone! :)

I am the new kid on the block! I am almost 72 years old and have suffered on and off over the years from anxiety. My dad was an alcoholic and I grew up with a lot of stress.

I have many of the symptoms that have been noted on this thread. I get dizzy, wake up nauseous, and sometimes nauseous through the day. Sometimes feel as if I am going to pass out and have recently been to a cardiologist for tests for palpitations, including nuclear stress testing, echogram, tilt table, Holter monitor, etc. His Dx. was 'benign arrythmia'. My main health problems are diverticulosis and trigeminal neuralgia I was bitten about three years ago by a tick. I did not realize at the time what had caused the bite. It started as a small red spot the size of a pea and then a faint ring appeared a few days later. It eventually disappeared, but I am now wondering if I am having some symptoms of Lyme disease. My body temperature remains a little low, around 97 degrees and my weight is 107 lbs. I should be about 125.

This does sound like a complicated post, but just wanted to touch bases with everyone and it is nice to know others have, if not exactly the same problems, at least similar ones.

Thanks for the chance to post! Wish everyone luck and hope. :)
