I have been diagnosed with so many illnesses and I am now 36 yrs. old. Nausea being one of them. For just right now I'm going to suggest eating a tsp. of honey, store bought, once in the AM and once before bed. Really anytime of day you feel sick. See if that helps first since it's your only symptom. I know it sounds simple but really try it and eat a soft diet for a day or two. Avoid spicy stuff and caffine.
You could try things that work for women with morning sickness.
Eat dry foods without a drink, and let them settle before adding liquid. If the taste of something makes you nauseous, eat a tiny bit of plain salt. I don''t know why that one works, but it does. Here is a link with a longer list of ideas.
Also, my sister had a similar problem, and it took 6 months for the Dr. to think of doing a HIDA-sacn on her gallbladder. It turned out that her gallbladder had stopped functioning. She had it removed, and was doing better the next day.
Forgot to ask, do you smoke or taking any new prescription or non prescription drugs? I smoke and years ago when I started smoking to much boy would I get sick to my stomach!! Also had a patient who smoked alot, always vomiting!
Are you on any birth control. That was the cause of my nausea for over a year.
I've been eating a bland diet for 8 months now. Crackers, rice, that kind of thing.
I also quit smoking in September. And, I've had a HIDA-scan to check the function of my gallbladder, and apparently that's healthy too. I've also been on birth control for 4 years, so I doubt that's it.
I'll try the honey, any other suggestions?
Have you had a gastric emptying test fr gastropareis?
I am having the exact same symptoms - started with food poisoning on Mother's Day (May 10, 2009) and my boyfriend and mom recovered in a day, and my symptoms worsened.
I have had chronic nausea and vomiting since then (It's July 10, 2009 today). Blood tests are normal, barium x-ray normal, ecg normal, abdominal and transvaginal ultrasound normal (except free-fluid around the ovaries which I understand is common, and I have had ovarian cysts burst in the past).
I am 29, been off work, I don't know what to do.
Taking zoloft, clonazepam, amitriptylene, nexium, Zofran, gravol, ginger tabs (natural supplement), and domperidone (to help empty my stomach).
I eat very small amounts otherwise I throw up. I have started drinking boost shakes and eating protein bars to stave off malnutrition. I seem to be able to keep down Little Caesar's Crazy Bread (no idea why!). I've been to the emerg twice for much-needed IV.
I'm losing my life and feel like I am losing my mind. Even if it is anxiety-induced, as some docs seem to insinuate, I am on meds to treat those conditions, with no improvement. I eat bland foods, non-acidic fruit, protein bars, no caffeine, don't smoke, not taking birth control (have a copper, non-hormonal IUD). Treated for reflux for some time.
Sorry, this is long, but just curious to know if anyone else out there knows what to do. Any answers are appreciated.
I see a GI specialist next week, but fear test results will be normal. I think part of the problem seems like gastroparesis, but even so, I feel awful and don't know how to make things better.
It seems that there are many people out there who have the same problem as me. I just want to get answers....i wonder what is new with you all since you have had this problem.
For nausea and vomiting nothing works like parsley. Boil it and drink and it is very potent in dealing with this problems. And it can be used with whatever you're using because it is an herb. Hope this help.
I'll try it and let everybody knows if it works.
