Please call your doctor and ask about phenegran or something similar to stop the nausea/vomiting before you get to the point of dehydration.

It's also important to find out why you are nauseous/vomiting. This has happened to me regarding hormones. I hope you feel better soon.

Oh, if this is a daily thing, then definitely go in for an appointment to get it resolved. I thought you'd perhaps been continually vomitting for a time period since you mentioned the ER. Phenergan is probably not the answer in your case. Sorry I misunderstood.

I curently under the care of a surgeon for this problem and hes ordering GI tests to exclude the possibility of a physical problem .

I have lived with nausea for so long . Used toget it 3 weeks out of every month in varying degrees starting mid cycle.

I told him I had a gut feeling it wasnt a GI problem ut they are testing anyway .

Well, "gut" feeling is a bad pun anyway!

Sometimes vestibular (inner ear) problems can lead to nausea and true vertigo, that "not knowing which end is up" feeling. The other question is if for some reason (such as hiatal hernia), your stomach is being compressed and therefore limited in its capacity? I already know that's a big part of my problem. Small bowel obstructions can also be tricky to diagnose.

To me, the worst part about the whole nausea thing isn't the nausea itself. It's the fact that I used to love (and live) to eat; I taught cooking classes, loved to try different restaurants, etc. Now, I still have to be creative and cook for my family, when the last thing I want to do is to eat! I have a soy shake that I use for meals when I'm feeling like that, but I've just found out that they're discontinuing the brand :cry:. At least I could keep this one down!

I still suspect some element of hormones to mine, but it's more likely the combination of mechanical factors and hormones that cause my problems. I did need to lose ten pounds -- but now that it's gone, I sure would like to enjoy eating, and cooking, again!

I have problems with nausea quite often, fortunately I never actually throw up. I've often told dh, should I ever starting doing so that is when I will be going straight to the ER.

I take phenagran for nausea. Another thing that can help is ginger. I keep some ginger supplements around at all times as I never know when it's going to hit. Other things that have helped me in the past is to drink ginger ale, warm 7-up and an over the counter liquid called Emetrol.

Audrey :
I guess I have not much choice but to submit to the series of tests .. then they can slowly eliminate . I do wonder what if it all cancels out .. I hope they dont write me off as some nut because this has been going on since I had my hysterectomy .I mean I have had nausea for ages but the inability to stomach meals has been since jan

Kim :
The locals swear by ginger but I cant stand the smell or taste .. its nauseating. Whats ginger ale ? is it an alcoholic drink ? I have heard of it ..

Hi mei,

If you can't get Emetrol you can use straight cola syrup, you take 1 to 2 tsp as needed between bouts of vomiting.Don't use if you are a diebetic. If you use soda pop make sure it is room temp and flat. Also if you put an ice cube on you throat will help.

My home remidies book suggests Bonnie,a chewable antihistime tablet. It also say to try acupressure on the webbing between you thumb and index finger. Use firm deep pressure in a rapid motion, or do the same thing on the top of you foot between the tendons of the second and third toes. I just tied that one on my DD and it helped her!

Hopefully theese idea's will help untill you get your test done.If you take hormones, try taking them at night. I have to take mine alest 1 hour after i take my acid reflux meds or I get sick too. Good luck!
