Went to the doctor in February and everything was going good so he decided to wait 6 months for the next checkup... So, of course, now I'm having a nauseous feeling after hard exercise and after eating a lot. I've also gone from 185 down to 160 since December (although I thats when i bought a house, and contribute some of that weight loss to our remodeling and my exercising).

I don't have any pain and my bm's are like they were before... So what's up with this nausea? Probably just need to set up another appointment, huh?

doe the GU have you on any meds? any changes to them? I would rule out the easy stuff first. That said, Call the Dr to let him know about the change in symptoms. this is important. If the Dr does not seem to care, get another DR. Your Dr should at least rule out things.

good luck and hang in there!!

I got horrible nausea on imuran, but that was a 2-3 weeks into it. Now my nausea, I believe, is completely unrelated to medications and just some random symptom that goes with my Crohn's. For me it happens when I'm hungry/empty stomach. It also happens other times when I can't point to a potential link for a cause.

My doctor gives me Phenergan and it works great. Some people seem to get sleepy on it, but I don't notice that I've taken one in any way. No loopiness, no sleepiness, just ending of the nausea.

Before the Rx, I used Pepto Bismol.
1 fistula, crohn's colitis, limited to large intestine
