please help me?

I am a 16 Year old girl and I have been suffering with severe nausea for 2 years. I get it at night and when I wake up and even during the day. Previously been to the doctors and they told me to take gaviscon to help and it worked at first but doesn't seem to be anymore. I am going through a lot of stress at them moment including college work and my grandma is dying of cancer only 3 years after loosing my grandad (other side of the family) to cancer. I think this is having a large affect on me because I seem to get panic attacks more when either someone else or I are talking about my grandma and I have a feeling it may be linked to depression but I am not certain. This nausea comes on after and before eating and I have lost a lot of weight due to not eating because of the nausea. If anyone has been through this or has a solution to how I'm feeling please share it with me because I can't keep living like this??? Thank you r

    I do sympathise with your concerns . I have unrelenting nausea. But if you have no other diagnosis you could try ginger tablets or I find even more effective is making my own fresh grated or sliced ginger tea. If takes  2 or 3 cups a day for 2 or 3 days before I notice a difference. It may help to eat more small meals instead of a main meal. Chammomile is good too. You could also try digestive enzymes.

    Stress can affect the digestive system which can also be linked to depression. Though before taking any prescription meds you might want to try something like Hypericum, a herbal remedy for mild depression. I would like to suggest that activities such as walking or yoga can help you find some balance. Don't forget you can always try talking to a councillor at college it might help if they know you need support.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi sweetie, is it after certain food? Nausea is definitely related to stress but it could also be something that doesn't agree with you like milk or wheat.  Try stopping one at a time for a week and see if it helps; but speak to your Dr again too. xxx
