    Has anyone out there had problems with extreme nausea many months (11 for me)? This has taken over my life. I have had many medical tests, and was shown to have a small ulcer, but my doctor doesn't seem to be able to help.
    :eek:

    Certain foods make me feel nauseated. Bread is one of them. Do you feel sick when you eat certain type foods or is it just most of the time? When I eat something that doesn't agree with me, my stomach feels like I'm in an elevator or on a ferris wheel. Then I feel like I'm going to puke. It takes a couple hours to get over it, sometimes longer.

    I would say to make a journal and keep track of everything that you put in your mouth. The nausea may be tied into the food you are eating.

    Hope you feel better, soon.

    I was having severe nausea, was sent for a HIDA scan and it was found that my gallbladder had ceased to function.. Booger came out on 1 / 24 and have had no issue since.

    I'll bet it is the gallbladder. I had a gallbladder attack 2 months ago and I was really nauseous for days and was hospitalized. That sure could be the problem.

    I can say now that my gall bladder is gone, I have not had any on going nausea issues.

    Other than the one 20 minute issue that was related to a food intolerance I am great. Eggs are currently the bane to my existence, LOL that is what triggered my short term nausea...

    Baby chickens and ducks are safe for now, ;)
