Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
Hi, is anybody on this site suffering nausea since the demise of their spouse ?.
My doctor told me that Grief causes nausea. Why does it, that's what I want to know.?
I aim to ask my doctor when I see him ?
I don't think I would be able to. I think it would upset Rocky. He gets upset when I'm on facebook and has accused me of talking to some man...even when I show him what I'm doing. I have 8 little parrots (2 babies I'm handfeeding) so I communicate with other bird people from all over the world about our birds. But he is paranoid about everything, so its not a good idea.
I would love to see Tootsie! Can you post more pictures? I just love animals and have my whole life. They kind of are my life, the only good part now. Rocky has not been into them like me, but he indulged me and let me have all these little birds. I am hoping my birds and Rocky's dog help me have some sort of meaning in my life when Rocky goes. Right now it doesn't feel like they will. I know it sounds terrible, but I have lots of thoughts of ending my life when Rocky dies. It's just these thoughts that are there all the time, every single day. I've never been alone before. I always had my kids at least. Now they are grown and moved far away.
Zofran (ondansetron) blocks the actions of chemicals in the body that can trigger nausea and vomiting.
Zofran is not for preventing nausea or vomiting that is caused by factors other than cancer treatment or surgery.
I agree with Mike, Zofran does not help grief caused by nausea, I tried it but no relief.
Yes, Rocky takes it for nausea. But I have a script for it to help with nausea too. And lucky for me it helps with the pain I have from an ulcer.
I guess not everything works the same for everyone. Just thought I would mention it due to it's off-label use for people like me. I know my nausea and the ulcers are due to stress and worry because it comes on when I am feeling upset or stressed.
That was my reaction when my father in law passed away. I was assured that it was a normal reaction for some people. After all death is so unnatural and humans were created to live forever. Our cells renew every 7 years so why do we grow old or get sick and die? On top of that your life just turned upside down. Give yourself a break and take things very slow. I relly think that talking about it is the best medicine. No, talking, will not fix anything and will never take the pain away. Most importantly, though, talking about it helps you share the load with trusted friends. Remember the song:
had nreves stomic on/off im shaky coz of mums ilnes nw handd hav temers shaky i seam a nerves weck
had dires direa sicknes on/off coz of loss of so musjh of it
Yes, my doctor and theraphist said it relates to nerves.
I woke up this morning not having nausea, so far so good, im doing my best not to think about it.
The first thing I did after being told my mom was dead, was run to the bathroom and vomit. I have had a nervous stomach my whole life, though. But intense grief definitely can make you nauseas.
I wonder why this happens, particularly for such a long time with many people suffering grief ?
How do you deal with it.?
