Hello, i am a first time poster.
Since May of 2019 i have experienced fairly consistent nausea and vomiting. i have consulted a doctor and had various tests completed. my liver and kidney functions came back fine, i had a test that looks for ulcers in the stomach (i'm not sure what its called, you take a pill and blow into a balloon) which also came back fine. i have had several blood tests with full blood counts etc, all were fine except for iron (very low, nothing new and have taken a few courses of iron supplements with no side effects) and low b12. my GP had put this down to heavy periods and my vegan diet. i was tested for coeliac disease and IBS, both were fine.
other things to note is - i am on a seizure medication (lamotrigine as a mood stabilizer), amitryptaline and a contraceptive pill. i have been on all of these medications for 5+ years with no side effects or issues.
the nausea and vomiting seems very repetitive, most instances occuring at 3am or 5am. majority of the time its extreme nausea/gagging with often no vomit or sometimes a very small amount. other times it can be one large vomit and lots of gagging.
my doctor unfortunately doesnt know what this could be and im running out of options. cyclic vomiting syndrome has been mentioned, however i dont believe i fit any other symptoms of this disorder.
the nausea is beginning to get worse and has had an impact on my diet, as the nausea often becomes so bad.
i have tried not eating past 8pm to encourage better digestion before bed, i have tried a nausea medication (maxalon)
if anyone has any ideas or possible ways to increase appetite or minimise nausea that would be amazing.
