Does anyone else suffer with sickness?

Hi all

I have suffered with endo for long time now, however over the past year or so I have suffered really bad with sickness.

I get some kind of morning sickness when due on then all through the month i will have off days of feeling queasy or being very sick.

Been to my docs and they say it's connected. Just wondered if anyone else has or does suffer and if they know anything that can help please

Thank you lovelies xxx

It's horrible love. Mint tea helps but only once you can keep things down. I sometimes try just smelling it which eases the queasy feeling a bit. If I manage to find out anything else I will let you know hun xx

Hi I suffer from nausea and stomach pains so much I lost a stone in weight my pains are worse in the morning but they are nearly the only stomach pains I have now because I have cut out gluten from my diet and started eating healthier. I have a book that says cutting out gluten, cutting down on bovine dairy processed food sugar and eating healthier helps endo patients. I'd look into diets they might help.

Cutting out gluten has actually helped the most so I hope it helps for you. I've also heard taking extra multi vitamins and minerals helps xx

Yup! I also experience nausea, I don't vomit though but feel I could sometimes. I find this is triggered by consuming certain foods 🤔but it's always the tastiest foods so it's hard to cut out! 😩 I have had to alter my diet quite a bit since diagnosis though. 😲xx

This is the worst symptom for me... i suffer from it most of the day, every day, its debilitating. Have you tried any prescription medication? I was given cyclizine by my GP, which does help although it can make you slightly drowsy!

I tried cutting out gluten, sugar, dairy... but nothing has eased this. The only time i get relief is when im on the mini pill or depo provera, which i cant take because im ttc.

Hope you find some relief... if you do you can share with me lol!

I have nausea alllll the time, it's horrible! The doctor says the reason is due to all of the inflammation from the endo. I take ginger and that seems to help only if it hasn't gotten to its peak. If anyone has any ideas on how to get rid of this horrible, horrible side effect please let me know!

Oh really. If I find out anything else i will let you know hun xxx

It's horrible. I've suffered with this for 30 years since my periods began at 14 years old. The doctors diagnosed me with having reflux esophagitis as they could not diagnose the inflammation. I now know it's from the endometriosis. Same as the IBS they also diagnosed me with.

Being sick usually helps, but I have trouble eating when I have a flare up. I've been taking ginger, turmeric, bromelain and papin tablets for two months they seem to work well.

I cut out gluten and dairy for 15 years. My body rebelled against this about 4 years ago. I now eat in small doses. I don't think that the dairy free, gluten free diets worked very well for me. I also tried organic carrot juice it did soothe the ulcerative throat problem. I tried ginger biscuits and tea, but nothing really helped when I had a major flare up. Flat Coke or Pepsi helped after I was sick to settle my stomach.

When I get the annoying cough I have two table spoons of organic cider vinegar and two table spoons of fresh Lemon juice in a tumbler of filtered water. This stops the cough and settles the stomach.

I get that too. I think during ovulation and just before period it gets bad. I can feel so so sick like I need to vomit but I never do just because I'm emetephobic ha. It's not fun though

Aw bless you hun. I am so shocked and surprised at how many women get it to. It has never been mentioned to me that I could suffer with this. Only bonus is i seem to be losing weight lol xx

Yes i do. You are constipated. No doubt through either endo or adhesions restricting your bowels. Ginger helps me loads. I make a ginger and lemon tea. Also laxitives or just cutting back on how much i eat

Hi mazzda - i take Prochlorperazine (the ones that melt on your tongue as i cannot swallow when i feel sick). They taste awful but it distracts you from feelin sick. You maybe able to buy them over the counter now at a chemist rather than going to the doctor.

I dont know what I'd do without them

Xx
