IBS and nausea

Bubu83 profile image

Hi guys,

Does anyone have nausea with IBS? Apart from occasional tummy pain and chronic constipation, this only symptom is making my life an absolute hell. Especially that I’m an emetophobic! I’m having a flare up just now ( no idea from what as I have a very strict diet) and the nausea is doing my head in ! Any tips apart from anti nausea meds ? Thanks x

Have you ever tried sea bands? I use them a lot! They don’t always provide relief, but they do more often than they don’t actually

Thanks for the tip, never heard of these..will look into it:)

Have you been getting help with your constipation? Constipation means that food hangs around in your colon for longer where bacteria have more time to feed off of the waste producing gases. Nausea can be caused by gas trapped in your system.

Hi like you I suffer with IBSC and then suddenly several months ago I started to have nausea. I started to take probiotics coincidentally at around the same time and the nausea seems to have mostly disappeared. I also now try and keep on top of the constipation by taking Laxido more regularly and following the FODmap diet as closely as possible. I don't think people realise how Ibs can rule your life!

So true ! IBS can make your life a living hell..I actually wanted to order some probiotics, but not sure what brand? There are so many on the market. ..

Thanks for the reply. I started using flaxseed, seems to be helping a bit. I was reading that for some people, it can cause tummy pain and nausea though..

Done

I suffer from nausea very regularly and it really sets off my anxiety, it’s a vicious cycle. I haven’t found anything to stop it but fresh ginger in hot water and travel sickness bands on the wrists help.

I need to look into these bands. And yes, ginger is really good indeed, unfortunately when I have bad flare ups it’s not working:(

I have also had nausea of late, not sure if it`s the heat or the pollen.

That’s actually interesting. I suffer from very bad pollen allergy and struggling just now despite taking my Fexofenadine .

We are really struggling this year with rapeseed oil plant fields in fact a number of locals that have been here for years have said that it is the worst that it has been.
