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.

Kathleen, read this.......What is Zofran?

Zofran (ondansetron) blocks the actions of chemicals in the body that can trigger nausea and vomiting.

Zofran is used to prevent nausea and vomiting that may be caused by surgery or by medicine to treat cancer (chemotherapy or radiation).

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:

Lean On Me Lyrics

Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain
We all have sorrow
But, if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
Till I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

You can call on me brother
When you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem
That you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Please, swallow your pride
If I have things
You need to borrow
For no one can fill
Those of your needs
That you won't let show


If there is a load
You have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me, call me
If you need a friend, call me
If you need a friend
If you ever need a friend
Call me
Call me
Well, you can lean on anyone here and I promise to listen anytime...

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 ?

Yes I have the same issue with nausea i find that since my husband passed my stomach is alway in knots haven't found anything that helps I just deal with it

How do you deal with it.?
