I have posted this question a couple of other places and cannot find any answers - so thought I would throw this out there. For quite a while now (3-4 weeks) I have had the worst nausea. It comes in - only what I can describe as "waves". It comes suddenly and I have to sit still and take slow deep breaths. It passes , usually in about five minutes. It happens several times a day. I have kept a log for the past week or so and there isn't a pattern of any kind and cannot find that cause. BTW, if anyone is thinking - could you be "with child"......uh, no - if so, we would all be rich - it would be immaculate conception! Anybody? Ideas?
***In case you are reading this post and don't know me, I have epilepsy, fibromyalgia and thyroid cancer...maybe that will help?!?!?!?!?
Hi Charley the only time I had waves of nausea like that was when I had a UTI and also impacted bowel. Its awful I know do you think its related to your thyroid problem? Could it possibly be your anti-convulsants What are you on? XX Chris
I am on Lamictal for the seizures. I hadn't thought about that but I will check into it. It is the worst nausea I have ever had! I didn't have it this bad when i was pregnate with my son. I really wish it would go away - I went to the pharmacy this morning and got something called Meclazine. It is for motion sickness and stuff like vertigo. It has helped but it has made me really sleepy...like I need something ELSE to make me sleep! Thanks for your thoughts - sick and tired of being sick and tired! :)
I know you must be really fed up. Don't blame you really. I take clonazepam that makes me a bit nauseus I take cyclazine and thet does work . Dont know a lot about lamtrizine(soz forgot how to spell it) Can you not change to something like epilim thats pretty symptom free my son says anyway. Hope you get something to sort it out. XXX Chris
it sounds like something to discuss with your doctor. so many different things can cause nausea. i've heard "waves of nausea" said in connection with gallbladder, and i had that same symptom until i was diagnosed with gastritis and acid reflux.
Hay Charley. I am sorry you are sick. Check the meds. Could this be your nerves? Maybe its all in your head. Just kidding no offense. Just trying for a laugh. Playing doctor here. I am sure you get the message. I do hope you feel better. I have gone there 3 or 4 times but you arn't there when I am. I will try tonight. Maybe it is because you have not felt well. Check out my story.
I went to meet with the anathesieologist this morning and it's a good thing I did. They had me scheduled for masectomy and tram flap reconstruction surgery. I am not having reconstruction and I they knew that. I went to the plastic surgeon 2 weeks ago and told him under no circumstances would I have anything done but maybe implants at a much later date. All of them know I wanted to heal first.
Then I was sent down the hall for blood work and the nurse that has been doing this for 14 years would not even try to draw blood because I did not have good veins. So she sent me to phlebotomy to get it done.
Then I was sent to get a chest xray and the lady came out keep calling for Ms. Hicks numerous times. She finally came up to me and ask my in my face if I was Ms. Hicks. I said no my name is ______ and she said oh yes you are who I wanted I was just thinking about someone else. What the ****. Good thing she did not ask for boninclyde. This is a major hospital. Now my anxiety is much worse than before. I'll be lucky if they get the right breast. I wish I could just run away. Sounds like I'll be in good hands. Please says more prayers for me. We are gonna get the name thing straight soon. LOL. Feel better soon. I am having an awful day.
Flippin heck I though our hospital services were bad!!! What a ** nightmare. I wish you all the best Bonnie honestly hope things take a turn for the better for you. Your in my thoughts so bless you and everyone else whos dealing with such awful health problems at the moment that I speak to on the forum. Health professionals have a lot to answer for sometimes they forget were all human beings not just a name (thats when they get it right) and should treat you as they would like to be treated. LOL PS Glad you thought my DX was funny cos so did I. xxxChris
Thank you Crystally. Charley don't mean to step on your thread. Though I don't think you mind. I just got a call from the surgeon and they said they found a spot on my chest xray. They will now send me for a CAT scan. Charley I do hope you are feeling better. Prayers. Will keep you all posted.
why don't you try to email me privately to talk about some of the other issues? tired_in_nc***@****
Girl, I am so sorry that you are so stressed. I know exactly what you mean....I have been having a couple of bad days myself. Some chick in the grocery store yesterday telling me that "it's no big deal" "you just take some pills and you're done with it"......ok, I was already irritable b/c of the nausea and wasn't really in the mood to shop for food...yuck - but had to and not to mention that I was still on my period....at which time, I should probably have a huge sign around my neck that says: STEER CLEAR - Zero to ***** in 1.2 seconds!
I can only imagine how stressful this is for you...the waiting is driving me crazy. The fact that you are being "mistaken" for someone else, etc and then the whole runaround, I would sooooo make sure that I asked questions over and over again so that they know they have the right person. Make sure they mark which side with marker. Seriously. When will you see someone about spot on chest x ray? When exactly is your surgery? Let me know, ok? I know you just feel like running away right now, so do I. But this is the plate we've been given and it sucks, but there is reason somewhere. I know you are scared and nervous - so am I. I won't know if/how invasive any of this is until after surgery. Take some comfort in knowing that you are at a major hospital and are in expert hands...know that doesn't make you feel better after what happened today. It sounds like you had an absolutely shitty day and I'm so sorry.....do what you can to pamper yourself....and get some good sleep......and we will all pray that tomorrow will be a better day. Don't forget to let us know surgery date, ok? I hope you know that there are alot of people that you don't know and who don't know you - that are praying for you every single day. I don't know if you feel comfortable saying so here...if not, email me privately, but are you married, divorced, etc? Just wondering if you are doing this alone? Do you have family/friends who are supportive right now? Just a question - you don't have to answer if you are uncomfortable with it. Please contact me....I think it will be therapeutic for both of us......
