Nausea
« on: January 01, 2014, 04:07:26 AM »
Anyone suffer with nausea? Daily nausea. Not constantly throughout the day, but comes in waves on and off throughout the day. Can anxiety alone cause this? Or should I be concerned that along with other abdominal symptoms, there might be something else lurking.
I'm up the walls worrying since this symptom started a couple of weeks ago. Please help, all advise and knowledge much appreciated.

I deal with daily nausea and have all sorts of tests done and everything is fine.

For me it's a mixture of anxiety and excess stomach acid. You could try taking Prilosec or Nexium as it will supress the acid in your stomach.

As long as you are not vomiting or losing weight, I wouldn't worry too much. It wouldn't hurt to contact your Primary.

Thanks for you input.
What kind of tests did you have?
Well, I'm not currently losing weight, or haven't lost any extra weight since before the nausea started a couple of weeks ago, but I have lost about 10lbs the past few months. Well, I was pregnant, and after having the baby, I now weight about 10lbs lighter than before, and not through lack of trying to gain weight, because I eat a tonne, but my weight never changes.
I have abdominal pain and bubbling for over a year too.
What do you think?

In my mind it is rooted in anxiety/stress. What can be more stressful than a new baby? I get anxious just thinking back to that time. How did I ever manage it? I broke out in blisters on my hands. We each have our weak spots. The doctor then told me to go on a vacation. Oh, and get him to care for baby?

Try to find quiet, relaxing time for yourself. Discover those foods that you like and that agree with you. There is ginger candy that can soothe digestion. Soup, oatmeal and jello are easy to digest. Wishing you and baby all the best, keep us posted.

I have had bouts of nausea for many years off and on. My GI physician told me that in many cases the
cause of nausea is never found.

Thanks for the input.
It was 14 months ago I gave birth, but yes it has been a very stressful time, having such a huge responsibility. I just don't know why this nausea would start recently though.
Nothing yet seems to make me feel better, eating, not eating, going toilet.
And probably I have started a vicious circle now, I felt nauseous, I panicked, this caused more nausea...maybe? Or am I pulling at straws? This symptom just makes me feel very uneasy and very concerned for my health.

I have had really bad nausea for about two months. Unfortunately I have lost allot of weight and throw up many mornings. One difficult thing is I started on lexapro about two weeks ago which may or may not be contributing. I am going to a Gi specialist tomorrow but know depression can lead to this too.

One of my main symptoms with anxiety has always been nausea. And yes, it is self-perpetuating- you are nauseous, which makes you anxious, which makes you more nauseous... it's a pain. But not harmful. I knew it was my anxiety because when I took xanax, the nausea went away. And when I went on the snri, after the initial wait,  the nausea also went away (for the most part, although when I have anxious moments, it comes back). Anxiety manifests itself in so many ways, and nausea is definitely one of them. Sorry you are dealing with this, but you are not alone.

Thanks for your response. And I'm sorry that you are dealing with this too.
As this has just come on so recently, and so suddenly, I can't help but think that my nausea is being caused from something else.
