I have been getting nauseated probably for the past 3 or 4 months.  If I eat a lemon, it helps.  I went to the doctor July 31st and he diagnosed me with hasmiotis thyroiditis.  He put me on Levoxyl 50 mg.  I was nauseated before starting the medicine.   I've had 3 migraines in the past 3 months, my mouth gets extremely dry.  Could you tell me what is causing the nausea?  I spoke with my doctor today and she said I might need to get some digestive enzyme.  What could all this mean? confused

Hi Mdearest,

Welcome to Healing Well. Sorry you have been suffering with this nausea. I am afraid I cannot comment on your Hasmoitis Thyroiditis and any of it's symtoms as I have not come across it before. Also I do not have any medical training, and can only give my opinion from my own experiences with Migraine.

However, when nausea is associated with migraine it is because, during a migraine attack the normal stomach emptying that goes on all the time stops and whatever is in the stomach stays there and sometimes comes back. This can often make you feel dry too. Taking an anti-emetic (anti-sickness drug) a short while before some painkillers can reverse this to enable the painkillers to be absorbed. In turn it also relieves the nausea and vomiting.

I hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.

take care

Hi all,

Just another random thing...I have had migraines for as long as I can remember and always had horrible problems with nausea and vomiting. I thought they were completely related and was in the hospital in August for Kidney stones (unrelated to all of the above) and found out that my gallbladder was not function properly. It probably has been failing for quite some time- after I had it removed my stomach issues have completely improved with the exception of a bit of nausea on occasion.

It is a major improvement from the daily nausea and near daily vomiting. Although I lost several pounds from being sick all the time, I think my new diet of healthy eating and exercise is a better plan!

Just my two cents on nausea and vomiting-not that it at all applies to anyone else!

Hi mdearest,

I have had problems with nausea as well. It turns out it is a problem with my stomach. The medicatinos I have been taking over the years have damaged the lining of my stomach. I take a medication prescribed by the doctor now with my medications, make sure I take them with food and have taken some remedies prescribed by the naturopath to fix the lining of my stomach. The nausea is much better now and generally only occurs when I take a lot of morphine or codeine.

Just another suggestion.
