Anyone else have these symptoms?

Hi Ladies,

I was wondering if anyone else has a problem with nausea. I am staying so ill that I've been unable to work for 3 days.

When the nausea first started a few months ago, it reminded me of "morning sickness". I even joked with co-workers that if I didn't know better, I'd swear I was pregnant! So they named my largest fibroid "Fanny Fibroid"

It has now progressed to almost constant nausea...enough so that I alternate between taking Compazine and Meclizine...both of which make me so sleepy that I have to go to bed, and means I end up not being able to go to work...not even the half days that my GYN reduced me to after I saw her last week....

I've talked with my GYN and she keeps telling me that she doesn't think this is coming from my GYN problems. She finally returned my call this afternoon and suggested that I see a GI specialist.

I then called my office (large family medicine practice) and when my co-worker relayed this info to my Primary Care Dr., he wants to see me first...*SIGH*....

I'm getting so sick and tired of BEING sick and tired....
PLEASE, if anyone is experiencing the same (or similar) symptoms, I would love to hear from you....I feel like I'm losing my mind! I know, I know....ya gotta have a mind to lose a mind

Oh Ria, I'm so sorry you're feeling sick. That has to be the worst!
I wouldn't think it is gyn related. Please see your doctor as soon as possible like you plan to. It sounds like it is alot more than nerves too. Good luck and no you aren't losing your mind

Hang on,

i used to get extremely nauseas during my ovulation and then again at the beginning of my menses. my mucous would get so thick during these times it made me sick, often causing a dry cough that would lead to bronchitis. shortly after that began we swithched insurances and the dr.s started treating me for allergies and asthma. i finally got sent to an allergy/asthma specialists who determined that i had neither. then i was sent to a pulmonologist, went through more tests and a bronchoscopy. found nothing to cause the chronic bronchitis. i went through all of that in an 18 month period and not one dr. would consider that it might be my endo that was causing things. i got frustrated,to say the least. so then my ins. sold out to another company and i got to return to my previous dr.s the ones i had been seeing for about 8 years. this obgyn listens to me, although a bit skeptical, and puts me on lupron. she said if your symptoms go away while your on this then it probably is your endo causing these problems. well, they didn't go completely away, but they subsided dramatically. the nausea ended as soon as my cycles did. so now i have had everything removed and feel better than i have in 2-3 years. i have more energy, i'm not in constant pain 3.5 weeks out of the month. you might ask about the lupron and see what they say. good luck

I had the same thing, I was feeling nauseated also but not as much as you. But it was there almost everyday, sometimes a couple times a day.

When I went to my General Doc for pre-op he had said that alot of these other symptoms would go away I would feel 100% better. Cause I also had constant indigestion, heartburn, etc. and he basically said that since my uterus was so large it was pushing on the other organs in my body.

I am 10 days post op and haven't had any of those symptoms, and I had them all the time, it is great. And my gyn said after surgery he thought the main problem was all the adhesions I had, he couldn't believe it, they were attached to everything. He said usually one c-section doesn't cause that many adhesions, well I quess it did.

Ask your doctor still, this was my situation. But all in all you will feel 100 % better after it is all done!

Good news update!

Hi Ladies,

A big hug and many thanks to all of you who answered my original post either here or by personal is my goal to be as supportive of each of you as everyone is being to me!

I saw my primary care dr today. He didn't want me to see a GI specialist just yet--what my GYN proposed. He seems to think that I've got an ulcer developing from the major stress I'm enduring (stupid insurance companies!!), and asked if I would allow him to attempt to treat my nausea before we go the GI specialist route.

He gave me samples (one of the perks of working for a dr is the free samples instead of expensive prescriptions!) of Protonix. It's been 4 hours since I took the first dose and GUESS WHAT????!!!!
My nausea has VANISHED!!!!! For the first time in over a week, I'm not sick!!!!! (nooooo...I'm not happy.... *silly grin*)

Also, my dr is going to give our office administrator a "run for his money" if he keeps making snide comments about all the work I've missed. (My dr is also 1 of the 2 drs who oversee our personnel matters, and he told me directly to NOT WORRY about losing my job! YESSSSS!!!!!)

OK...I'm off to clean on this poor house and just enjoy feeling NOT SICK!!! WOOHOO!!!

big hugs to all,

I had horrible nausea before my surgery for a long time. I did have really bad dry heaves too on the day of my surgery from the enema I had to use. The diarrhea was bad too, I would go back and forth in the bowel area. When I had ovarian cysts they caused me to have nausea too. I had adhesions which were wrapped around my bowel and attatched to my pelvis bones. My nausea and sour stomach are gone now since my surgery!!

relief shortlived *SIGH*

Hi and thanks to those who answered my post about the nausea problem! It helps to know that I'm not the only one experiencing this stuff!!! I just wish I could make friends/co-workers and even the doctors understand it!!!

I was just reading the replies to my post, including my own update....*SIGH* least I had part of a good day last Thursday! I was so excited and filled with hope that my dr had hit upon a solution, but apparently it's not yet to be.... I didn't make it to work on Friday or today (Monday) and don't know about any other days....I just never know how I'm going to hits me so suddenly sometimes, and then all I can do is find a place to recline or lay can last for half an hour or it can last for hours...I never know...

I'm having major guilt feelings about pouring out all my woes, here.....sorry, but can't help it.....I have never been a complainer, and don't want to become one! But I've just got to get this off my chest or I feel like I'm just gonna bust wide open! (Hmm...might not be a bad idea....then they would have an excuse to go ahead with the TAH!!) I just simply hate having to tell people how bad I feel......wishing the world would just go away and leave me alone!!!!!!

Ok...I think I've said more than enough....thanks for the "bended ear" :-)

Ria, ! I'm glad you are over your nausea and found something to work!

keep focusing on the future. life will get better. just go one day at a time. i always carried crackers with me. sometimes they helped sometimes they didn't. sometimes a sprite or coke would help. othertimes it was benadryl that helped. keep plugging a way the count down isn't to far away, although it probably seems it a bout now. don't worry ablut complaining to us; that's what we are here for, support and an ear. as for the guilt, are you catholic by chance? your complaints a valid- but it's very hard to get others to understand that. i think i finally just told them "i feel i'm coming down with something; the flu", that they understood. of course, it helps if a cold or flu is actually going around at the time. let us be your sounding board whenever you need it, guilt free. if needed you can pay back by telling everyone after your surgery how it was for you and that you are ok and they will be, too. best of luck

I am too suffering from nausea & dry heaves.

Thought it was because of low blood sugar.....I eat - still feel bad. Thought it was because I ate too much, ate smaller meals....still feel bad. Thought it was nerves....not! sigh................I've decided that it's either the way my uterus & it's piggy back riding (fi)BROY (Rogers) is riding on me or.....well.... With the mysterious cells on my right ovary the 'or' is a big one.

My bouts typically aren't debilitating & I'm fortunate as I telecommute - but there are times when it's just too much! Hubster gets very concerned when he sees me/hears me having a bout. He'll hold me until it ceases.

Have also found that club soda is a good thing!

Am seeing my second (third?) opinion tomorrow & see what he thinks about the nausea - as well as EVERYTHING else!!
