Help with nausea

Posted , 8 users are following.

one of the MANY symptoms I get with perimenopause is nausea, it is always worst first thing in the morning and when I lie in bed at night. Does anyone else find this happens and can anyone offer any advice to help. I find i am frequently sucking on a mint just to help with this but I know that's not the best long term solution.

    Hi , yes when I was peri i got the nausea in the morning. It was like morning sickess. The only thing that really stopped it was by eating something. I still get it occasionally ,but not badly. I went off tea and coffee when pregnant and if I had the nausea when peri I couldn't drink tea or coffee or I'd be sick. I could later in the day though. Weird.

    Hi Ruth...

    Ditto everything that Jackie said!

    The coffee, tea, mint...everything.

    It will lessen over time.

    Ginger gum has been a lifesaver for me. You can buy it at CVS. It is near the anti nausea (motion sickness) meds.

    Dear Ruth

    Yes I experienced nausea in peri mainly in the mornings, I dont think tea or coffee helps either! We get more reflux in peri (it doesnt help witha hiatas hernia in my case) and when lying flat at night in bed the reflux can cause havoc including nausea. Best not to eat too late at night and perhaps consider raising the top part of your bed up abit ( I have wooden blocks) x

    Hi, yes I get this.  I've had to prop pillows up and bought one of those v shaped pillows and sleeping like this has become a lot more comfortable with it, use two pillows and then the v pillow and what I do is put the two long bits of the v pillow around me before I lie back, that way it cradles you,  if that makes sense, lol.  so comfy. and Ginger tea, cooled before bed works for me.  Powdered magnesium is also great for calming the whole system too.  Anything is worth a try.
