Feeling sick

Hi, i have ibs d and twice this week in the evening i have felt very sick. Basically if i burped i felt so sick. i wasnt at all in the end but I literally thought i was going to be and had that feeling of oh great i must have caught a stomach bug. i get the odd feeling of feeling a little bit sick but a mint always makes that go away but it didnt on these occasions.

Does anyone else get this? could the ibs be getting worse or could i even have something else instead of ibs?

ibs doesn't get worse if you experience worsening symptoms you could have a undiagnosed condition this could range from gastroenteritis to acid reflux.

I have both IBS A & Ulcerative Colitis and i often have bouts of nausea and vomiting that can last for weeks until it settles.

Definitely check with a doctor if your symptoms persist longer than 3 days which are worsening or interrupt your sleep its often a sign of a condition of concern.

Thanks, im hoping to get a drs app tomorrow so will see what they say as i seem to have more days where is bad in the morning.

Have you been given any tablets to help with the nausea? i literally freak out when im sick so just the thought of it panics me

I have been having severe nausea with my IBS over the past year and have had lots of tests which hasn't found anything else. You are not alone so don't worry!

What do you do to help get rid of it? how long does it normally last for?

Mine at the moment just seems to come when i burp, but not every time

Well mine came on last Christmas and dissapeard after about two weeks and now has recently came back again :( I am going to the doctors next week to get some tablets, if I can remember right I think I used peppermint tablets last time to help, once I have been to the doctors I will let you know what it is I used to help it
