I wake up EVERY SINGLE mornign feeling like I have the worst flu ever. I have nausea, 

diarrhea, a horrible headache and just feel like I got hit by a semi. Then after I've been up for awhile I start feeling better. By noon or 1:00 I feel "normal". I've gone to the doctor and we discussed anxiety but ruled it out when the medication did nothing. Then we discussed gastro issues and all tests checked out. I'm at a loss and I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. Some days aren't as bad as others. I think the more sleep I get the better I feel, but it never goes away entirely. Next step is to remove my Mirena. Most of my symptoms started soon after I had it placed and stopped taking my BCP. I'm not sure what to do next. I'm 38 and have never felt so crappy. Even when I was pregnant with my son.

And welcome to Healingwell. You posted to a very old post, so I created a new one, so you would get more responses.

I too suffer with nausea daily, but mine is caused by another health condition. But I can also tell you when my anxiety acts up one of the first symptoms I get is nausea.

With you I am really wondering if the Mirena is the cause? Maybe it might be best to try removing it and see if you feel better. Do you feel like you you are having any anxiety or do you have any increased stress in your life that might be causing your nausea?

I feel much like you describe daily, but that is because I have Crohns Disease. I treat my nausea with Zofran. I also like you feel much better after I have been up for awhile.

Sure hope you get figured out whats going on with you.

Good luck,

I have lived with that first morning "hit by a semi feeling" my entire life (at least since grade school). I know exactly what you mean. Mornings for me are horrendous with head pressure, feeling out of it, tired and Yes, I have always described it just as you did "Did I get hit by a semi last night?" However, I do not experience nausea. This may not be helpful or what you are dealing with, but I found it has to do with allergies (cats) and dairy. I eliminated dairy from my diet once for three weeks and for the first time in over twenty years actually got up early without my alarm and felt refreshed and fully rested. I was a new person! Unfortunately (and what probably makes no sense) I choose to continue to eat the stuff I shouldn't and own cats and so suffer the consequences. So, maybe it is something in your diet or an allergy? The difference after I gave up the offensive foods was dramatic! I used to watch my friends or family members rise early and be raring to go and even as a grade schooler I could barely move and felt horrible (we had several cats). Head pressure from allergies is known to be bad in the morning upon waking.
Anyway, hope you discover what it is. Might need to do some experimenting for possible food and/or allergy culprits. The scented fabric softener on you pillow? etc
Peace to you,
