Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! I knew you guys would have something to say! I didn't realize that ginger ale wasn't made with real ginger... Maybe that is why it doesn't help that much
. I'm going to check the label... Shoot! I was going to get dried or candied ginger when I was at the store tonight, but I completely forgot! I did pick up Chamomile tea. My acupuncturist told me to drink strong Chamomile & Peppermint tea, so I will try that in the morning. I actually felt a lot better after acupuncture today. I should have asked him if there was a specific point that I could massage on my own.
The compazine was just a desperate, short term measure. It didn't seem to help me too much, just made me kinda dizzy (bad combo), but I shouldn't judge yet, as I've only taken it for one day. When my doc gets back from abroad I will get in contact with him & determine a plan for if/when this happens again. I don't know if he will want me to pursue this further, with a specialist, or handle it himself. We have spoken of this before, but it was never this bad & we didn't talk about
any "what if's."
TMJ - How do sea bands work? I have heard of them before, but I never understood the philosophy behind them.
Frances - I hope you feel better soon & that your abcess heals!
Kitty - I agree! I think nausea is one of the worst feelings ever! Interesting bit about
the vanilla ice cream. I wonder how I'd even get it down my throat before it came back up, though. But maybe that's the point?! It sure does burn your throat, throwing up. Last night I was lucky enough to have it coming out of my nose as well, as I was vomiting with such force. That was an experience that I never care to repeat!!!
