Nausea for two months! Please help

I've been nauseous for two months now. It started out of no where. I initially was having very bad headaches and those soon faded and immediately after I began feeling this horrible nauseous feeling. I feel it constantly everyday. Some days it goes away and I feel like myself again but it quickly comes back. My nausea is accompanied by a closed throat feeling and an off balance dizzy feeling. Ive never actually vomitted since either. I become very shaky when the nausea comes. I don't know if my body shaking has to do with me just being scared I'm going to throw up but that's the least of my worries. I've done blood work, cat scans, urine samples everything checks off clear. I finally saw a gi specialist and he wants me to try being gluten free before doing an endoscopy. It's been one week since and I've felt a tad bit better and had the biggest relief that I found the cure. Until it just came back out of no where. I just need some answers. Going back and forth to the ER. Pcp, and gi specialists with no solid answers is getting old. I've had acid medicine perscribed no help. I've had zofran to maintain the nausea no help. I've had promethazine perscribed and that helps a tad but makes me super drowsy and wears off shortly afterwards so also not a solution. I can't sleep. I don't have an appetite and I'm not myself anymore because it's taking over my life. Please if anyone has any answers or help let me know!

    Try going dairy free to see if that helps, then try eliminating fructose.  Keep a food diary to see if any other foods cause symptoms if being dairy and fructose free make no difference.

    You said you get dizzy has your doctor checked your ears or considered the eply maneuver. Inner ear issues can cause terrible nausea. Also anxiety can cause many problems in the body. Something to look into perhaps?

    Unfortunately i've been having similar symptoms since january, so I know how bad it sucks to feel like this. No vomiting, but bad nausea every day and shaking, occasional dizziness, zofran not helping, etc. I tried changing my diet, got a CT scan, endoscopy, and nothing has really hinted towards anything specific. However, my Gi seems to think that it could be an intestinal motility issue, so that may be the case for you too. I've been taking miralax daily to help keep things regular and it hasn't made me feel too much better, but it is good to know i'm having regular bowel movements which could become a problem. So my tip to you would be to try miralax, and if you wanna try a stronger laxitive do magnesium citrate, or even just regular magnesium suppliments, even if you think you're having normal bowel movements.

    Also, I'm not sure if you'd be willing to try this, but i'm going to see if acupuncture helps. At this point I'm desperate lol. Either way, hope this helps some bit. Best of luck smile

      It feels a tad bit better knowing someone knows how I feel. Thanks for all your suggestions. I truly hope me and you both find the solution. I've tried everything and just can't seem to get over this hump.

    I hear you and totally sympathize. I too have been in your situation for 18

    months now. Same symptoms as you. Each time a dr suggests a new test

    It gives you hope and anxiety at the same time.

      maryan, 

      I foundd tat drinking tea with fresh ginger in it helps a lot with the nausea..You chop up about a tablespoon of it and brew it along with an herbal tea.  Leave the ginger in the cup (it stays on the bottom) and sip it til done.  I add lemon and maybe some honey.  This is also a great antioxident. When we are so nauseus and cannot eat well - or take a handful of vitamins on an empty stomach the ginger at least has some good value as well as helping with the nausea.
