Constant Nausea going on 8 months

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello! I posted 4 months hoping to get some advice. I am still where I started..sad I have had constant nonstop nausea for the past 8 months, I've undergone most likely every single test the GI specialist has recommended. All test are coming back normal, I'm to the point of just not eating at least when I don't eat I'm not as nauseous. One thing I notice when I don't drink water within a certain time frame the nausea gets worse, any suggestions on the reasoning behind this? Anyone else experiencing this issue? It's really starting to ruin my life.

    Hello Taylor have you noticed if it's certain foods that make you severely naucious or drinks?

      No, I can eat a greasy burger or baked chicken and still have the same outcome. I tend to only drink water because I'm nervous to drink anything else.

    Have you tried keeping a food/symptom diary to identify any problem foods? Have you asked your doctor for allergy tests?

      That's a really great idea about the diary. I'm going to start that today! I will call my doctor today to ask for a allergy test. Thank you so much for your help.

      I've been losing weight as well! Since August I've lost 24 pounds. I started with the pills but my body has started to reject them.

      Hi Taylor 23588, 

      i have lost 13kilos in 15 weeks i cant eat any food at all not even fruit otherwise i end up in total agony. have you tried any sort of shakes like sustigen or anything like that .

      you can make up great smoothies with lots of fruit which is how im getting my fruit and vegie intake.

      the only other thing i can suggest is maybe going to see a natropath or someone like that.

      good luck hope you get better soon.

      coconut oil tablets are really good for nausea and you can get them from your local super market

      Wow! I wish you luck hopefully you can find relief soon. I will definitely start with the shakes and I'm going to start working out to see if that helps. I have a GI doctor appointment this month hopefully I can get them to do a allergy test.

    re all tests done:

    Gastric emptying study done?

    Mesenteric artery angle measured? (Superior mesenteric artery (SMA) syndrome)

    Parasite concentration test (3times stool, not one off stool sample)?

    If your neck or back is setting off the queasiness, try stretching it. (not rolling neck, just tip your head forward and touch chin on your chest for a neck strech 10sec, or ly on mat on floor on belly as like for a push up, but just lift your upper body to stretch upwards, please search internet)

    Sucking on an icy pole, something frozen even frozen fruits, always helped my daughter and got liquid into her, when vomiting was an issue.

    Staying well hydrated has always been a remedy against nausea, as to why, I don't know.

    Ginger and other drinks made us feel sicker, which is a remedy for others.

    If you had some GI infection (some violent 2-3 day infection with vomiting) it can leave a functional irritation for a year or so and should pass.

    In our case we have a connective tissue issue (Gastrointestinal manifestation of Ehlers Danlos disease, hypermobile type), that this will be a life long issue and hopefully not develop into a severe gastroparesis, that needs iv or tube feeding for rest of life.

    It can really get very very bad,

    so as long as somehow managable without fix iv port to survive the nausea and vomiting, I consider us lucky.
