I have nausea almost every morning for over a year. I had and EGD and abdominal scan. EGD showed GERD and a small hiatal hernia. Abdominal and colonoscopy were normal. Liver function was normal. I am a very anxious person and worry almost constantly about what can be wrong. I take prilosec and zantac. Have used compazine for nausea but it doesn't do much. I have taken prescribed valium (usually 2.5 to 5 mg a day around 4 times a week) but I get anxious about becoming addicted. The anxiety is just a vicious cycle. Usually by the evening I am feeling fine and can eat supper. I will take a nature made sleep aid on nights were I find my self overworrying but sleep quite well. Any suggestions as to what could be going on. I believe alot of it is the constant anxiety over my health issues.
hi karual i have suffered from simlar issues and i will say the the hernia needs to be repaired once that is fix you may feel a big diffrence.. plus g.e.r.d will cause all this. i also have anxiety and the mind is a very strong thing and if you have this it must be treated for it can cause so many symptoms its amazing..be happy all your test are normal unfortately u have anxiety and is tough to beat
Thanks for your response. It is like positive reinforcement. I know my anxiety is the major reason but it is like a vicious circle with me. I feel anxious which causes me to be nauseous and the nausea then causes me to feel more anxious. Thanks again for responding.
