Re: Nausea/Gerd
Feb 19, 2011
I am in my third week of acid reflux. I have just had an endoscopy to see what's going on. I suspect Hpylori bacterial infection. In the meantime the worst part of this is the nausea. I wake up in the middle of the night feeling like I have to go to the bathroom. I have stomach pains and nausea. On night the nausea went on from 1:30 A.M. until the morning. I did not vomit but the nausea continued. I found myself walking up and down the front walkway at 2:00 in the morning in desperation. I ended up in the ER and they gave me some potent nausea medication. But I would not like to take this daily. I have a prescription from my Gastroenterologist for ondansetron 4 mg. I haven't had to use it yet, because the last episode lasted about 10 minutes. But each day I fear going to bed at night and wonder if the bland diet I am on is even working. So I know and understand your suffering. When I discuss it with other people who have not experienced this they look at me like I need to go to mental health. I don't wish ill will towards them, but just 10 minutes of what I am going through.

I can empathize with you so much. It's hard to describe to others when nausea is a constant in your life. It may come and go in waves, or subside when I am laying propped up with pillows but the mere fact that it never goes away is what is troubling. I'm sure worrying about it doesn't help our acid reflux, either. Since I began the PPI again (one a day ~ 20 mg of Rabeprazole) it has helped. My biggest fear is that I will have to keep coming back to taking PPI's, I so wanted to get off of them for good. I can sleep the night without any nausea but as soon as I start to move about it comes back...it's about a 1 or 2 on a scale of 1-10 but it's still annoying and most of all brings anxiety to me because of my fear of vomiting. I've been drinking ginger tea in place of my usual coffee ~ 3rd day coffeeless :( but I will do whatever I have to do to get rid of this nausea.

I hope you feel better soon! All the best to you.
