Question: Chronic Nausea

 hockeycatgirl - Thu Sep 08, 2005 6:08 pm

I have been nauseaous since mid May-not constantly-it comes and goes. I've had a CT scan,upper and lower GI-all normal. I have had other health issues as well,but this is what seems to be left. I was having stomach pain as well,but zantac takes care of that-my dr just put me on nexium-helps pain,but not nausea. I take cymblata for depression/anxiety-this started a month before i started the Cymbalta. I'm not sure if I need to do anything additional or hope it's anxiety and eventually goes away or what. Any direction?

User avatar Dear hockeycatgirl,

Anxiety and depression in many studied are proved to be of significant contribution to many gastrointestinal symptoms. Nausea was found to be the major form of GI disturbances induced by Anxiety rather than in patients with depression. In these cases treatment of anxiety and depression is the main approach to control the GI problems.

So, I advise you to keep on follow up with your doctor and to inform him by any change in your symptoms for proper management.

Best regards,
