Acid Reflux with nausea?
I was diagnosed with Acid Reflux disease 15 years ago. I have been on an acid blocker (prevacid) and some others over the years. The condition has slowly worsened. About 5 years ago, I started feeling constant nausea that literally lasted one year. The constant nausea tapered off after that and since then, it comes and goes throughout the day and evening. I still take Prevacid everyday for the acid reflux.
My doctor sent me to a gastroenterologist (stomach specialist) and they ran a scope with a camera into my stomach. They said the bottom of my stomach looked red and irritated and that was all they found. They did not believe it was contributing to my nausea. Nothing further was done. I have been living with this nausea that comes and goes ever since. I am not sure what to do anymore. I am writing this because I am just getting tired of it.
I mostly feel nausea when I am hungry and need to eat. After I eat, it feels better but after an hour or two, I feel some indigestion from what I ate earlier. It is a continuous cycle.
I do take Naproxin for osteoarthritis and I have been on other medications for my joint pain. My doctor recently swiched me to Mobic for joint pain and to help reduce my nausea and after I got the medication, I read that one of the side effect is nausea! Nonetheless, I took the Mobic for a week and suffered a lot of nausea. I stopped taking it. In the past, my doctor has also prescribed 800mg Ibuprophin which I could not take, it tears my stomach apart! I am so discouraged and I really don’t want to go back to the doctor.
I am 42 yrs old female. I don’t eat all that great but not all that bad either. I don’t eat a lot of salt, sugar or meat. I stay away from really high fat/ high calorie foods. I don’t drink much caffeine or soda. I don’t drink alcohol (also tears up my stomach) and I don’t do drugs.
Anyone have any suggestions? Advice? Thanks

I feel your pain!
I’m 45, have MS & Migraine Disease. There are times when I get a migraine without pain only nausea. What works WONDERFULLY is called Phenagren 25mg. Anytime I’ve had to go to the hospital for a morphine drip due to a migraine, they’ve always added phenagren to prevent any nasuea as well. I can’t recommend it enough.
Oh yeah, I too have acid reflux. I’m on Nexium. Why the heck is it that our bodies want to give out on us when we’re still somewhat young? I mean, it’s not like we’re in our 60′s. Ya know what I mean? I too am very tired of being sick all the time.
Hope I helped.

I see from your Q that you drink very little soda’s, caffeine and no alcohol, that is a very good start and will be easier on you getting completely better.
First you have to become aware of the poisons that are routinely put into our food in the name of providing us with low/no sugar drinks and low fat this and low fat that and the rest of the crap they spin-doctor us with, when in truth all they are really doing is pumping us with toxins that make us think their products are good for us by tasting good and in reality are creating diseases through the poisons in our food that manifest years later as diseases such as; Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Ulcers, Depression etc etc.
Have you ever wondered why there is such a huge increase in diseases that were relatively rare many years ago?
Why is there such a crisis in the American (and other countries) population of overweight people?
Read & watch the links provided to see the truth about what is the real cause of our health problems.
You are probably thinking that wouldn’t really happen?
They wouldn’t poison people in the name of profit?
Then think again, just look at the Formica Powder in baby food and Cadbury products in China and USA, previous to that, do you remember the Red dye problem that caused the massive recall of foodstuffs (after it had been on sale for 2 years) and there have been many such, and they are only the ones who got too greedy and added their own make-more-profit chemicals to food, it does not include the FDA’s so-called “Safe Additives”.
To address your current problems, have you tried getting a tin of peaches, opening it and placing the contents in a Tupperware container in the fridge to keep it fresh (never leave a tin food contents in an opened tin, the air reacts with the tin’s inside coating and is Not good for you) eat a couple of the peach slices when you have the need, you will never need antacids again. (read the leaflet with ant-acids they are Not for long term use!)
Have you ever heard of the Water Cure by Dr. F. Batmanghelidj?
I did a few years ago and have been using his method since then, It is truly amazing and I would not still be around if not for it, so forgive me if I seem overly enthusiastic about it, see more about it in the links. (It’s practically FREE, just the cost of the Sea Salt in your supermarket etc, and tap water or filtered water.) Go to your local library and take out Dr. B’s book called “Water & Salt, your healers from within” ISBN: 1-903571-24-3.
Our bodies are approx. 75% water and it needs to be kept at it’s optimal amount, if not we become dehydrated, but products like soda’s, caffeine and alcohol have diuretic effects and cause us to lose more water than is actually in the products we are drinking instead of water, causing dehydration over a period of time, this water loss is at the heart of the health problems we are suffering (aside from the excitotoxin caused problems).
Drinking approx. 2 L water per day with Sea Salt is the answer (IMPORTANT: See the link for the proper recipe), Unsure? then think about this, What is the one thing almost routinely given to you when you are having serious health issues and are in A&E, yes, thats right, Saline Drip = Salt & Water (surprise, surprise)
Research excitotoxins for yourself, you will be shocked and surprised just what is being foisted upon us and how bad it really is for our health.
BTW: I am Not a doctor nor am I affiliated with any product manufacturer etc I am just a person whose life was destroyed by Monosodium Glutamate and Aspartame and other poisons in my food.

What could cause constant bloating, stomach pain, and nausea?
I have been having really bad bloating, nausea, and stomach pain for 3 weeks. The pain is located on my left side. I had my period, which was 3 days late, but not a big deal. I am also not about to start again for another 26 days so im sure it is not pms. I really do not think i could be pregnant because i had my period. The pain feels like period cramps but in my stomach. I have been getting so bloated that my clothes do not fit at the time. Now this does come and go. I will bloat and it will last for a few days subside then return. This also comes along with nausea and usually starts after i eat something but sometimes it just happens. My bowel movements have been regular and my diet has not changed. It hurts to the point where I have to take pain medication to be able to walk around. Sometimes its real bad and sometimes its mild. What could be wrong with me? I do not have insurance so a casual trip to the doctor is not in the budget. Is it just gas? This is just strange.
I can go to the doctor im just not wanting to pay 120 dollars for them to tell me to take some gas medication.
Answer by essentiallysolo
could be a number of things, gall bladder going bad, lactose intolerance, intestinal distress from mild food poisoning. Would suggest to you that if it doesn’t pass after two weeks, you had best budget for a doctor visit.

Unexplained nausea, fatigue, and sometimes a little dizzy?
Over the past 3 weeks I’ve been experiencing nausea frequently and it gets worse in the evening time (like right now). I have no clue what is causing it because I’m not eating or doing anything out of the ordinary. I just haven’t been feeling myself lately. I’ve been more tired and I’ve been fatigued. I had to leave half way through church service on Sunday night because of the nausea and slight dizziness. My legs felt a little weak. The nausea does not lead to vomitting, but I just get waves of nausea but it doesn’t stick around continuously. It kinda just comes and goes especially in the evening and at night. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. Also, I have not missed my period. Can you give me any suggestions? I plan to see a doctor but I wanted to see what everyone thought before I go.
Answer by Heather
Your symptoms sound a lot like ones I had a few years ago when I found out I had an iron deficiency. To find out if that’s the problem, the doctor would just have to do a blood test. If that is the problem, all you have to do is start taking an iron supplement (I would recommend a liquid one cause it’s easier on your stomach).
I doubt you are pregnant but you probably don’t want to rely on just a home pregnancy test.
Hopefully that helps!

Constant Nausea and Urinating?
I have PCOS so please no one suggest I could be pregnant because that’s impossible at this point. The last time I had sex was in Jan. 2009 and it was protected. I was forced to take a pregnancy test in May 2009 and it was negative and that’s when I was diagnosed w/ PCOS.
Ok for the passed two weeks I’ve been having nausea that comes and goes in waves, I’ve been peeing like every 30 minutes, and off and on really bad headaches. My right lower side (where my ovary is) has been spasming and cramping these passed three days and from July 10-July 14 I had pinkish brownish discharge with period like cramps.
My last official period started Nov. 27, 2008 and lasted 7 days.
If you don’t know what PCOS is please don’t answer this question. I am currently uninsured and have no money to see a doctor and I’m tired of dealing with the rude people at free clinics who just call me hysterical.
Can anyone tell me what might be going on?

Answer by PJ
Could you have a urinary tract infection? Start drinking lots and lots of water and see if that resolves your problem.
UTIs can cause headaches, nausea, frequency in urination, burning, etc.
Answer by virtual insanity
I would be concerned that one of the cysts was large enough to put pressure on your bladder. I had one that was and had to have emergency surgery. I don’t want to scare you because UTI’s are common with PCOS, but the nausea doesn’t sound normal.
You probably see a gyn at the clinic? You might want to get a referral to a urologist. It could be interstitial cystitis. Its not right that they treat you rudely, but please don’t let that stop you from getting medical care. They don’t live your life or deal with your pain and have no right to treat you that way.

Answer by forbidden_planet
It could be time to go to a clinic. People say all kinds of stuff on here that they don”t know anything about. Take your health seriously and see a doctor.
Answer by zeropulse047
My neighbor was experiencing those symptoms and the doctors treated her for a sinus infection. Turns out she had a staph infection. Go to the doctor but if he can’t find what is wrong, suggest they test for staph. My neighbor went through 2 years of tests and a lot of heartache and worry before they finally found the staph.
Answer by matessa2005
Nausea , tiedness and slight bleeding is a symptom of sinusitus . because if you are suffering from sinusitis you experience nausea and tiredness due to clogging of nostrils, followed by painful head and neck that causes nausea and tiredness. with regard to nose bleed that is due to clogged nosetrils due to untreared colds. Please consult an EENT specialist for proper treatment.
