I have had daily, and almost constant nausea for 6 weeks, beginning just before my last period, which was especially heavy and I had bad PMT too.
First visit to the doctors and I was prescribed omeprazole (a PPI), in case it was acid reflux or irritated stomach. This helped a bit, the nausea went away in the evenings. I saw another doc last week, and she took me off the omeprazole and onto Compazine (an anti nausea med). This isnt really working and I felt much better on the omeprazole.
I don't have any other symtpoms - still a good appetite, bowels normal (though maybe passing through a bit 'fast' after breakfast!) and just slight stomach aches.
Now yesterday i realised that i am over a week late with my period, so Ive done 2 tests, both clearly negative. What's going on? Something hormonal maybe? I'm fed up, unable to work properly, unmotivated and worried..
Daily nausea 6 weeks, late period but not pregnant
Go to your doctor and see about getting a sonogram of your ovaries. It sounds like the problem I have, which is Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. It used to be that you were told you had it, and there was nothing to be done about it, that a good percentage of women have it and that's it. Nowadays they know that it is linked to a condition that mimics diabetes and can cause a protein deficiency, which makes one feel sick to their stomach until they eat the right protein. I tried everything - yogurt, fat free milk with ovaltine, cake hehe -- and they all help to some level - but it's hard to get anything down when you're nauseus and those things never fixed the problem. I'd end up with a wave of nausea again and again.... until.... I ate the egg. I can't stand eggs much now because I eat one every freakin morning - AFTER - the first wave of nausea hits. It does the trick within a single bite and the nausea stays away until the next morning. Nope - can't get up eat an egg and be done with it, have to wait until you feel the need, then be done with it. I find keeping boiled eggs on hand is easy for when I can't stand to make my own, or hubby is busy - but they sure do get old fast. A buttery, salty egg tastes best and isn't so bad for ya as long as you eat healthy the rest of the day. Good luck.
MsJones, I cannot thank you enough for the info about pcos. I have been searching high and low for any sort of helpful information about anything to do with PCOS since my diagnosis. Unfortunately what you said used to happen is exactly what happened to me! No doctors I have seen have been anble to tell me anything other than well you have it, heres the percentage of women who have it and that's it. Deal with it. Everything you wrote is brand new information to me and so relevent to my problems! Thank you so so much and if there is anything else you can tell me or links you can provide I would appreciate it so so much. Thanks MsJones!!
Well here it is two years later and all I really have to add is this: I definitely noticed a link between carbs consumed the night before and the nausea. Unfortunately, it seems it might be related to blood sugar as well, and crashing. If I drink a beer, eat some late night candy, eat a late bowl of cereal - basically, eat late, then my chances of encountering that same old issue is greatly increased. Once I noticed that the few days I did feel just fine were days I didn't snack or have my beer the day before -- well, I was bummed. But, now I feel better more often and I rarely have to eat that egg. It's not 100% consistent. Sometimes I don't snack and I don't have a beer and I still end up feeling icky - but not a lot anymore. Plus, I practice Reiki, now, too. You should google it : ) I'm glad I could help! Well wishes headed your way!
