For the past few months I've had terrible nausea every single day, and nothing has helped it. I've tried cutting gluten and dairy, taken zofran and reglan, tried antacids and PPIs, got a CT scan, endoscopy, and gastric emptying study, and various blood tests, all of which hinted towards nothing, EXCEPT for the CT scan, which showed some material sitting in my intestines. My GI wants me to get an x ray this week to confirm that the problem is in fact a motility issue, but to me I'm still sort of confused. My GI has put me on miralax since March, and although it made me more regular, it had NO effect on the nausea. The next thing to try would be magnesium citrate, which I plan on doing after the x ray if it confirms my GI's beliefs since I have nothing to lose. I'm also going to try taking simple magnesium tablets as well.
Either way, could this really be the cause of all of this? There are some days where I literally cannot eat because I feel full/sick almost immediately... how could it not be related to my stomach? Also, when I do go to the bathroom, I don't feel any relief, which seems to be a symptom of something like IBS-C. I'm not necessarily sceptical, I just lack the knowledge to truly understand how these could be connected, especially when I've dealt with constipation off an on for a while and never experienced any symptoms like this. So, if anyone has any knowledge/experience on the topic, please let me know!
