Nausea

Posted by @jillannw, Dec 25, 2018

I started 8 months ago with either food poisoning or a stomach flu. I have never recovered. I have had every test done and continue to suffer from nausea everyday. In the middle of this I was diagnosed with and treated for c-diff twice but because I didn’t have the classic symptoms the drs at Mayo thought they were false positives. I also was diagnosed and treated for SIBO twice. The nausea everyday which is where this all started never went away. Has anyone had this and come up with a solution?

Hello @jillannw, I see that you are new to Mayo Connect. Welcome!

I am sorry to hear of your continual nausea. I have a fair amount of nausea myself as a result of several surgeries of the upper digestive tract so I'm more than a little familiar with this topic.

Just some thoughts to help you think through this, so if you care to share more:

Is this nausea just a feeling or do you actually vomit on a regular basis when you eat?
Have you been able to maintain your weight over these last 8 months?
Some meds will cause nausea for me, especially if I have to take them on an empty stomach. Do you take a lot of meds yourself?
Sometimes food allergies can cause problems like this as well. Have you tracked your nausea symptoms to see if there is any correlation between your diet and nausea?

Here are some other Mayo Connect conversations that you might find helpful. The members in these conversations discuss C-Diff as well as SIBO.

I’m sure since you’ve had lots of tests they already did the stomach emptying study to see if it could possibly be gastroparesis, correct? I had mild but persistent nausea with that before I was diagnosed and got it under control with the right eating plan.

Right now I stopped all meds. Sometimes I throw up. I have lost 15 lbs and I was thin to begin with. I cannot make a correlation with food. I’ve limited my sugar intake, don’t drink or eat any lactose food. It usually happens around 5:30 before dinner. But also other times.

Yes thank you. I had that test done.

I take Compazine twice a day for long term and undiagnosed nausea since 2004.
