After 1 month remission I am sick again with nausea

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have a long history of stomach problems. I did not do an endoscopy but from the symptoms and other information I gave my doctor, he suspects gastritis. The gastritis worried me to the point where i developed anxiety and possibly IBS. I was put on omeprazole. Sometimes I would have long remission periods and would stop taking the omeprazole thinking I'm doing better and everything is ok....then I would get a flare up. I had a horrible flare up on April 1st. Went back on the omeprazole and have been better since....until this morning. Woke up feeling kind of anxious and nervous and now I'm nauseous. I just had stomach cramps and passed some soft stool. To be honest I've been dealing with extreme stress lately due to a relationship issue. I did not eat on time over the weekend and skipped a day of taking the omeprazole. Now I feel sick. I just drank some antacid so hoping for relief. My question is, how long does omeprazole take to work? If i stay on it for a solid month or 2 should that cure me? What would you guys recommend for IBS? I read that Buscopan is good.

    Yeah i was takeing buscapan pan cramps for a while and it cleared up but i had it for a good 2-3months and now i suffer a bit from anxiety which goes hand in hand with ibs im alot better but that little anxiety black cloud is in background😉

    I too was Omeprazole and it takes about 2 weeks to build up in your system but i felt better in a a few days, but i still take them at moment because of my mild anxiety i have now grrrrrrr😕?

    Peppermint tea for ibs helps

    Hot water bottle

    Hot bath and submerge stomach

    Camomile tea for Anxiety

    Both require u to get out excersise or weights is very good and eat but watch what your eating

    Banana and ginger works (ginger nuts)

    Hope the helps
