Hi, I am new here, so hope I don't drone on at all.
I suffer with the most severe nausea. It affects every aspect of my life, and has done for the last 12 years. When it starts, I get a hot sensation across my shoulders and arms. The nausea feels like when you have food poisoning.. yeah, that bad. I have to go to bed with a bucket because I just never know.
I can't eat, drink, socialise or plan any trips away, as I know I will spoil it for everyone. I live most of my life convinced I am going to be sick, I never am, but wish I could so it would ease. I developed, about 10 years ago a phobia of being sick so am convinced the anxiety makes it worse. I have tried everything, anti emetics, cutting certain foods out, even paying for food intolerance tests and much more. All I do is sleep as I feel so vile. My children admit that they cannot remember me being well, which kills me. I have such awful stomach ache with it. Does anyone one else suffer this, or does anyone know of any treatments. I should mention that I take 50mg of amitryptiline, which has helped so much. I'm 47 and just want to feel normal again as I've honestly forgotten how that feels.
