I have had Fibro for many years but only the last 5 years has it made life really difficult. Does anyone have any sure fire cures for nausia? I have learned somewhat to live with the pain but not the nausia. I do not think that is spelled right either. Anyway, I have tried pepperment oil and ginger and some of the over the counter "cures" but nothing works. Does anyone have any ideas? Elody21

Hi, Elody, and welcome!  I keep something in my stomach at all times.  When I start to feel nauseous, I get a little snack of some kind or eat a meal if it is time.  I know the last thing you think about when you are nauseous is food, but this works for me.

I've been battling nausea for about a year now. I have yet to find a cure. I take a lot of tums and pepto bismol. Peppermint tea is supposed to work. It doesn't actually cue anything, but I always drink 7 up when I'm nauseous.

You can ask your doctor about perscription nausea pills, but I didn't find any of those that worked either!

I agree with Sherrine, try to eat something, even if it is just a cracker. Are you taking any new meds that might be causing the nausea? I take chantix and it gives me nausea for about 30 minutes but it goes away.

I would also like to welcome you to the forum. There are a great bunch of people here who are always ready to help you.

Oh boy...yeah nausea... cry   it can really make a huge dent in the quality of life, that's for sure.
We all get days when our stomaches are a little off, and I have to say that crackers (saltines) have become my best friend.  It helped when I was pregnant.  I have found over the years that they really help on those off days.  I eat those, and drink soup broths.  Eating white rice, and banana's are said to be perfect for it too.  Very easy to digest, and gentle on the stomache.
Have you been checked for ulcers??  They can make one pretty sick.  Or perhaps acid reflux?  For me, it's a med I have to take, methotrexate.  Seems that drug induced nausea is the hardest to find relief for.  Has your doctor suggested it might be your meds?
There are plently of stomache meds out there (prescription strength) like Losec, Prevacaid, Pantoloc, and so on.  Have a talk with your pharmacist about your meds, and your tummy troubles, he/she might be able to help in some way.
I hope you find relief and the cause Elody,

I am the queen of nausea.  Years ago I ended up with an elevated prolactin in my pituitory gland and that in turn makes my body think it is pregnant 24/7 so the doc put me on meclizine.  You can also buy it over the counter so to speak but its actually behind the pharmacy counter,just ask for it.  It is 25 mg's and works great.  I also have it in suppository form for when I have the flu and cant keep anything down and in turn cant keep my pain meds down either.  Without this med I would have my head in the toilet half the day.

Hi Elody, welcome to our 'club'. I had severe nausea while I was pregnant w/ both my sons. 24/7 for the entire pregnancy, made working horrible. The dr. said he couldn't give me anything, I tried Tums and saltines, no good. I couldn't keep anything down. I only got sick if I had the flu or pregnant. I had the flu last yr and couldn't get past the constant nausea. The dr. gave me one rx and it helped to a degree, then it was worthless. She finally gave me Reglan and I use that to this day, literally, I had to take it twice today. I had to go to church today and my stomach had other ideas. I also do not eat past 6pm, I found that seemed to cause me to be sick a lot. I haven't had anything after 6pm, since 1992. I also chew a piece of gum, mint or cinnamon, sometimes that helps. I hope you feel better soon, I know how miserable that can make you feel.

God bless.  Alice.
