Hi gettinby- I'm so sorry to hear that you are going through this. I can sympathize as one of my main symptoms is nausea. I literally thought it might kill me at more than one point in the last year. I tried (I know this isn't what you asked but I always feel the need to include ALL details. lol!) everything from peppermint tea (gave me D- it really did. No one was more surprised than me), to compazine, Zofran (which my pharmacist nearly strokes out over when I fill it), Reglan, diet, yoga, etc. I was carrying bags everywhere- even though I never threw up from the nausea, every day was so bad, I was sure (even after 100 days of this) I was going to. I slept on the bathroom floor the first week of it. UGh. That in turn was making me exhausted and I just suffered through it. Now, let me get to the advice part- Zofran is the only anti-nausea med that doesn't cause fatigue, so that might be worth trying- it's very expensive (was created for cancer pt.'s, so if you're not one, like me. . .) so be prepared for some possible guff about
it. As far as energy, I don't know if you like to take meds, but the psychiatrists I work with (I'm an inpatient psychiatric social worker) will occasionally presribe a med like Ritalin to counteract fatigue in our patients. Now, please - I'm not trying to anger those of you who may have ADD or ADHD that need this med for those reasons. However, I had a family member on it that had a lot of health problems and I've never seen her better! She's awake! I've actuallythought of asking my MD for it. But I'm trying to hold off for now. And again I offer this cautiously. I always say to go over the option with your doc. I hope on one's pee'd off about
that suggestion. I realize some people take that drug abusively- but taken as prescribed, it can be helpful in cases of fatigue. However, I would always go with meds as a last resort. Yoga and meditation can also be helpful with fatigue. I wish you a lot of luck and hope to hear how you are doing.
