I am new to the forum. I just had to write because I can't believe I have found it. I have been searching the internet for years to find the answers to my 'morning sickness'. I thought I was the only one with it not being pregnant. The gastro doctors have found nothing and don't even have any other patients with the same thing. And now I am so relieved that I am not the only one to have this and that it is not all on my head. I am also sorry that others have to suffer with the same thing. I have been having this morning sickness for about 10 years now. It started one day for no reason and was written off as stress and I have even seen a shrink about it who put me on valium for it saying it was stress but like my gastro she also has no other patients with the same thing. So I thought maybe it was crohn's since my youngest son has it and possibly my oldest son has it. I've had an endoscopy, an upper GI, which showed possible SMA and a test for SMA all negative. It has come and gone sometimes staying for months and sometimes leaving for months but always comes back. Now I am having it everyday. And like the other posts if I get up after 10 I am fine but if waken up and upon movement I get nauseated and do vomit almost everyday. Once I get sick it seems to go away for the day. But before that, movement, odors or just about anything will make me sick. It is so hard going to bed every nite knowing that I am going to be sick in the morning but not knowing why or how to stop it. I have tried drinking something but that just comes up and forget eating just the thought of food in my mouth makes me gag. I have been on all the meds for nausea but none of them have worked. In the posts I didn't seem to notice any one mention the meds they are on for it or if anything has helped it go away or what they diagnosed with. Does everyone have GERD? Is that what is making you sick in the mornings? I have not been diagnosed with GERD but will talk to my new gastro when I go next month. But if anyone has any suggestions to help until I go to the gastro I would greatly appreciate it.
