So thankful that you all are here to give encouragement and examples of your experiences. I have learned a lot. Something that I have not seen much information is nausea. I have had it constantly for the past 5 days. It is something that has come and gone before but now if I put 2 bites of anything on my stomach(?) it comes and stays. It seems to sit in my chest. I don't throw-up because I hate to and so far I have been able to suppress it. I have been taking Promethazine, to no avail.

My main questions for ya'll could this be caused from gas? I have more gas than ever. Also is this something I should call my GI or PD about?

I have this problem as well - when I was flaring hard it was a non-stop thing. If I dared to eat, I felt like throwing up for a solid 2-3 hours afterwards before it would abate to a low rolling nausea level.

I have no idea what causes GI doctor seems to think that in my case it's a response to pain. Ask yours next time you go, I would guess?

Sorry I can't be more help, just wanted to commiserate.

I get that frequently. Whenever I'm getting a more noticeable flare up I'm nauseaous for days and have no appetite. I'll usually throw up though, I hate to, but afterwards I feel better for a while. (learned that during pregnancy, easier to just throw up and feel better than to deal with nausea) If I eat anything i will usually take a zofran or the promethazine (can't really do that one anymore as it knocks me out and i have an 8 month old to take care of) and that makes it so I can at least keep the food down. I hate nausea it's awful.

I think you need to bring this up to your doc. That sounds like you have a stricture or something going on. Hugs!

Nausea is my biggest issue when my Crohn's is acting up. I've rarely had diarrhea. Recent tests show I have no stricturing at all, but do have some small ulcers in the small bowel. When I was flaring really badly, I actually vomited a lot, but most of the time I just have low grade nausea.

I have been having nausea here lately as well... Have it quite bad right now actually as I have just exercised (seems to be worse after exercise). I think it'd be a good idea to call your GI; I've set me up an appt to see my doc but think I may hafta call back and see if I can go sooner. I have some Promethazine left from a previous prescription I had and am trying that out (gonna see if he can get me a refill for that). Any other tips on dealing with the nausea?

Geeez SL, that stinks. I would rather take a beating than throw up. Hope your doc can help. I know it sounds too simple but I use Rolaids when I feel that way and I have saved myself many times from having to lose my lunch...

When my Crohn's first struck and disease was active I was nauseated 24 hours a day, seven days a week for 2 1/2 years. At that time it was due to a high grade partial obstruction. Eventually I fully obstructed and ended up being admitted to hospital from ER vomiting feces. The ONLY relief I got during those 2 1/2 years was a shot of demerol and phenergan in ER.

The nausea knocked me down to the point that I was going to lay there in my comfy hospital bed w/my comfy pain shots and die. I don't ever want to go there again.

I remember that I could blow up like a ballon and look like I was 11 months pregnant w/twins. I remember I had pain so bad I would lay in bed crying No more, God, please, no more.

To this day I remember I had the pain and the bloating - BUT - it is the NAUSEA that I actually, really remember, VIVIDLY. I panic in no time at all even now, thirty years later, when I get the least bit nauseous.

I was fortunate to have a 20 year remission of symptoms after my resection. But the initial symptoms on the Crohn's return was nausea. No pain, an occasional twinge now and then.

It turned out tho that altho the Crohn's had returned and was silently active, the nausea was caused by bacterial overgrowth due to a high grade partial obstruction at the old resection site. We were successful in treating that w/alternating antibiotics the first 10 days of each month for several months. Then I would only start the antibiotics if I got "the queasies" (the forerunner of full blown nausea). And after a year or so I was nausea and symptom free again. (Of course, as soon as it was determined that the Crohn's was silently active as well I also took Pentasa and Imuran as maintenance meds but the antibiotics had cleared the nausea by that time).
Like SGirl, I learned during pregnancy, it was better to throw up and have the nausea gone for the rest of the day than to NOT throw up and be nauseous all day long. During the bacterial overgrowth nausea, throwing up would only reduce it to "the queasies".
You might want to try a liquid diet for several days and then a soft, bland diet before eating "normally" again for possible stricturing and partial obstruction.

Thanks for all your in put. I knew ya'll would give me great feedback. I have been on a low-residue since Nov. 09 when this giant flare began. Sniper, I take nexium and eat tums. This does not feel anything like the burn of my reflex and I tried Tums about an hour ago and so far no relief. I can't help but wonder if this is related to the excess gas (from both ends). That is new also, about a month. I will call my GI today and see what they say.
Nanners my prayers are with you.
Thanks everyone!

Oh yeah! The excessive gas from both ends is definitely tied in w/the nausea of the last 5 days. I hope that your gastro can get you in yet today and the two of your can decide what to do to get you some relief - FAST!

Good luck, God bless and do let us know what the two of your decide and the results of that decison!!!
