Does anyone have any experience of constant, low-level nausea?

I've been feeling sick all the time For the past few weeks. It's really getting me down. It's exhausting. I'm not pregnant (had a period a couple of weeks ago, and have tested since.)

It's worse in the evening. I don't actually vomit, but retch quite a bit (sorry)

Otherwise healthy, albeit overweight and have Crohn's disease. The Crohn's isn't particularly bad at the mo.

I don't know what to do; it doesn't seem bad enough to see my GP iyswim.

Does anyone else have this?

Acid reflux, GERD?

Ah, that's possibly it. Sigh. I don't want to go on omeprazole forever. sad

I deffo need to lose some weight so I best do that before seeing GP. I eat little and often anyway, but I do drink wine at the weekend.

Just to say, you can get a false positive when pregnant, and a light period. I did, and also had sickness from week 4 of the pregnancy.

Oh and also, see your GP, that's what they are there for, you won't be scoffed at. Nausea is unbearable.

I've got a coil in, so really don't think it's that.
I'll take another if the next period is late.

It's fine if I don't eat or drink, but that's not massively practical.

Gah, I hate seeing the GP.

I've had your symptoms most of my life. It does get better with the right meds and a good diet. It can actually get worse by stress.
Don't suffer. See your gp.

What sort of diet worked for you, user?

Will I have to give up curry? 😱

Sorry to say but yes! ☹️ For a while anyway. Till your symtoms get better you have to have a very bland diet. No spicy food no caffeine or citrus food. I kept this up with daily omeprazole. I started feeling well after a few months. Then slowly started to introduce those food back into my diet.

Azathioprine gives me nausea. I still take it because the nausea is better than Crohn's symptoms. Ginger helps me a little - ginger tea or ginger beer.

I had to come off Aza as I developed a sensitivity to it; extreme nausea, diahorrea, chest pains etc. I halved, then quartered the dose and the symptoms kept getting worse.
I was on mecaptopurine but came off that a few months ago because I was always getting ill and the joint pain was worse than the Crohn's symptoms.

I might try a soup diet for a bit.

I'm lying in bed feeling wretched.

I have Crohn's and I just assume things like feeling sick are part and parcel of it, I can't tolerate doing stuff I usually could, like cleaning up cat sick now makes me physically sick, bad smells make me feel very sick, stuff which involves looking or smelling gross stuff is just too much for me now.
