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 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.?
I drink beer,
So do I. How many do you have ?
