Every day debilitating nausea, hard to eat or drink.

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi. So I've been diagnosed with functional dyspepsia and am dealing with constant nausea on the daily. I'm dealing with it for a long time, 2 years now and it gets better but it always eventually comes back and I feel like dying would be easier then not eating and vomiting daily every two months, then beginning to eat more normally with nausea and then relapsing again. It gets worse when I have to eat and I can barely get enough food down to function. I also can't drink as much as I should (dehydration and dry mouth every day). Some days I throw up when I wake up, or if I'm not careful with how much I eat at once. Has anyone experienced this and/or has a solution? Is there any medication I should ask my doctor for? It's really destroyed my social, personal and family life. I can't enjoy a nice dinner, going out with friends, going to see a new movie, birthdays, parties, weddings etc.

All input and opinions are welcome.

    Dear Jason 555,

    I wish to hell that i could write a learned explanation of what may be wrong. My own brother has the same condition and despite constant hospital tests we cannot find a solution. Nausea is a most disabling condition and hard to live with.

    I had a related condition in 2014 which was kidney based. I was ill for months, and in hospital too. I was eventually admitted to a teaching hospital who put me onto emergency dialysis. It took a year of treatment before I became even fairly well.

    Be cautious of crank treatments and diets, desperate people are an easy market for con merchants. Keep going to the doctors and keep a diary of your symptoms. Try a different doctor or hospital.

    Regards, E

    Ask for anti nausea/anti emetic medication to help you to eat more normally. Has your doctor not suggested these medications to you?

      He hasn't suggested anything. I did every test possible already and everything was fine but he would just give me a note to go get more of the same tests done again. Should I go in and ask for them directly?

    I would ask your doctor for an anti nausea med to help with your symptoms. Since you have had a diagnosis of functional dyspepsia, further tests won't show anything because the problem is functional rather than an issue with a particular organ.

    i have the exact same thing. ive seen every doctor, specialist, have had every exam/test possible and two explorative surgeries. cant really find anything...

    they are continuing to stick with severe anxiety. i tried everything i could naturally and then tried amitriptyline 10mg for about 5 months but i didnt like the side effects so i took myself off of them.

    im at a point where i have to believe its anxiety and its the only way im going to make it out of this. im done exploring because it caused me to get worse. im going to start seeing a really good therapist about it (ive seen two but they were mediocre). i was recently doing better but have "relapsed" again. its legit torture and not having answers wrecks havoc on the whole situation. youre not alone and if your doctors have searched everything, maybe its smart to see about getting medicated and maybe cbt with a therapist? ive done it all but never have been too extreme about anything as i am an overly cautious person. i think its time to kick this illness in the ass as it has done me. message me if you ever just need to vent!!! -Reni

      Thank you for the reply! I'm so sorry you're going through this but I'm incredibly relieved I found someone like me... For such a long time I've felt like I'm the only person in the world going through this. I've been to a psychologist which was no help at all and two psychiatrists but to no avail. None of them knew what to do, what caused it or how to make it better. I take sulpiride 1 pill of 50mg daily and 5mg diazepam pills "as needed". I've too been to every possible test in the past year and a half and am going for a complete blood work test, as suggested by my psychiatrist. If you find something that helps, anything at all please contact me I would love to hear how you progress. Best of luck, I know how you feel.

    Jason have you tried taking probiotics? Yogurts and Kefirs are good sources of probiotics. These are healthy bacteria that will help to regulate gut health and help with digestion related problems. From my experience, one of the safest and most effective ways out of digestive problems are probiotics. Probiotic supplements are also a good choice too. Specifically I would recommend Flourish Probiotics by Eu Natural. This is a combination of safe healthy bacteria that helps to support digestion, gut and urinary tract health. A safe way to get rid of nausea and other digestion related problems. I would recommend you check it out.

    Good health to you
