I am curious to know if anyone else out there has had the same problems with nausea. I have had nausea for over 5 years now and it has gotten progressively worse to the point of being debilitating. I have had numerous tests, ERCP, pancreatic stents, Upper Endoscopy's, CT Scans, Ultra Sounds. I initially had high levels of Lipase and Amalyse in blood tests but those have leveled out so the doctors are looking elsewhere from the pancreas. Medications I have tried include Phenergan, Zofran, Reglan, Buspar, Dramamine and now I am taking Maranol which does give some relief. I have been to several gastro. doctors and am now trying the allergist. This nausea never leaves me, I no longer have any life at all. Any suggestions? I am truly at the end of my rope, I am desperate!

Dear Nausea, I too have nausea and have for 30 years or so ( no health ins.) It has gotten worse in the last 10 years or so. Some time going months without an episode. I've been in the ER countless times. I finally had a Doc ask me a few questions and after telling him my problems he suggested I get checked for" Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome." I've taken Phenegren and compazine after I already feel sick Which I cant take oraly because I throw them up FUN!. I never know when it's going to happen so there is really nothing I can do prior to an episode. Im moving soon and intend on seeing a doctor about this.And to try and figure out what triggers it. I feel for you when you say you have no life. My job is suffering, Im affraid to go too far from home incase I feel sick. Ive been staying away from gluten and it has seemed to help some, I have only been sick a few times in 6 weeks. and I had gluten each time.( dicovered by accident while keeping a food log) I seem to get sick around my girly time more often. I could go on for days about symptoms and things Ive tried to feel better. A warm bath or shower sometimes helps. but I cant carry a tub around with me. I think it's worth looking into. I never heard of it till a few years ago and then everything made sense. I hope we both find relief soon ! good luck and let me know what you allery doc says. Forgive my spelling. :)

No, we cannot take a tub with us. I am 43 yrs old and have been to the emergency room 8 times since Dec. 2011, with severe abdominal pain and severe nausea. I have been diagnosed with Gastro Paresis ( Stomach Paralysis). My stomach does not empty properly due to diabetic neropathy in my stomach. My sever syptoms last 12 hrs. to 72 hrs. The only thing that brings me ANY type of relief is a hot bath. I have lost 50 lbs since Dec. and I have an appointment with a GI doctor in June. This has made me very unreliable and undependable, because when it does it, it consumes me. I am having a hard time, living on pureed food. I will start looking at gluten free foods as well. I do know that I cannot digest red meat of kind, not ground, not pureed. NO RED MEAT, nothing fried and no pork of any kind. Mashed potatoes and jello and creamy soups, lots of broth. IM STARVING!

I am sooo sorry to hear about your nausea issues. My 16 year old son has chronic nausea (for a year and a half ) as well and it's debilitating. Like you, it never goes away. He also has chronic diarrhea and vomiting at times as well as bone pain. He is also at the end of his rope. He was gluten free for quite some time to no effect. He was also on a seven food elimination diet (no wheat, corn, dairy, eggs, fish, soy or nuts) and then a 'no food' diet for two weeks where he was on an amino supplement. Nothing helped but we did learn it was not the result of a food allergy. An upper and lower endoscopy came back clean. He does not have parasites. Anti-nausea meds do not help but maybe we should try Maranol since it provides you some relief. (Thanks for the tip.) Yesterday a friend suggested it could be 1) a histamine intolerance or 2) a post viral infection that causes a 'sympathetic nervous system' reaction (meaning your body is always in fight or flight mode). Am not sure what else these conditions mean but will investigate. I wish you well and ask that if you uncover the problem to please continue to share your story (as will I). I do not suffer this myself but I see the misery it is putting my son through. The worse part is when doctors get lazy and say it's all in your head when it is so clearly not. Keep your courage up.

I suffered from nausea and vomiting which is now under good control. In the early days it was awful, and to begin with no one could figure out what was going on. Mayo Clinic were unable to help me, and all of my tests kept coming back normal.

I found a great physician in NC who has been able to get to the bottom of my issues (which turned out to be motility related). My doctor is an IBS specialist, Dr. Drossman ( - he is excellent. I highly recommend him and he will work with you over time to get to the bottom of things.

PS. I have SIBO due to poor motility of the small intestine. The overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea etc.
