Nausea seems to be a common complaint. I blame most of mine on my GERD and the rest on my UC. I will take Dramamine on occasion when it's bad and I need to get stuff done; however, it's not something that you want to take often as your body can get hooked on it.
Are you flaring? Nausea can be worse when flaring.
The middle-of-the-night wake up makes me think acid reflux as well...
I understand how miserable that is - I hope you find a solution soon!

Osteopenia (hip and spine) from prednisone use. Started Azathioprine because I was steroid dependent.
