Ive had this constant nausea since being on holiday in Crete in 2005.
From the minute my eyes open, until the minute i fall asleep, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Ive been to my doctor at least once a month for the past 7 years, and they still dont know what is wrong
Ive had a ton of tests, cameras down my
throat, biopsies blah blah blah. Was sent to a psychiatrist because the doctor insisted it was anxiety and depression. The psychologist said i was not
mentally ill, nor suffering from depression. He said the anxiety was caused by the constant nausea.
Ive taken every pill under the sun for nausea, depression, and anxiety. The only one that helps is a drug called Ondansetron which is normally used by
cancer patients under chemotherapy (for nausea). But they are now losing there effectiveness as ive been on them for the last 3 years!
Ive spoken to many people who have the same thing (through forums etc)...none have been diagnosed. All have to endure this horrid feeling all the
Anyone on here suffer the same thing?? Or have any idea what it could be??
Ive learned to cope with the nausea (as best as i can), but it does limit me to where i can go and what i can do. For example the smell of fried food
makes me dry heave. So eating out is a no go. Going around friends for meals is also not something i can do now
I was almost murdered in March 2011, so this has not really helped
I also have PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) or PDSD (prolonged duress
stress disorder). to deal with alongside the undiagnosed nausea!
Ive got to be honest, ive not dealt with this as of yet. Ive not had counseling or any help for this condition.
So....has anyone got any idea what the nausea is about? The cause....ive pretty much eliminated a lot of reasons, including
In 2006 i was diagnosed with having a hiatus hernia, but the doctors have said that this has nothing to do with the nausea. This was probably caused
by a serious car crash i had in 2005. ( hit in the rear at 50mph+ whilst stationary)
I saw another thread about nausea, which prompted me to make one of my own.
I know we have some doctors, and other medically qualified people on here. I moved in October 2011 because of the attempt on my life. So ive had to
get another doctor in my new area. I have an appointment tomorrow, and would like to suggest some things to them. Im hoping they are better than the 2
previous surgeries i have been to for help with this issue.
Thanks again, and i look forward to some of your ideas
