    Is there something wrong with my stomach?

    Hey, everyone. I hope you’re all okay and staying safe and well.

    I have a bit of a strange question. I have several chronic health conditions, including Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Dysautonomia, Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome, IBS, Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, Diabetes, Interstitial Cystitis, Migraines, Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease and some mental health difficulties. So there’s a lot of stuff going on.

    Anyway, I regularly get stomach aches, or just an iffy stomach in general. I’ll sometimes go 2-5 days with a very minimal amount of food because I’m just not hungry and I feel sick. I’ve had lots of tests and scans and beyond having a Hiatal Hernia and some inflamed blood vessels in my stomach lining, they can’t find a reason behind this. But I’ve recently discovered that when I feel like this and/or I’m bloated… I can get it all to go away by drinking something fizzy. Doesn’t matter what it is, but as long as it’s fizzy… It almost instantly makes it better.

    Does anyone have any idea why this is? I do struggle to burp a lot - I always have. When I burp, they are tiny and don’t make much difference, even after I’ve drunk the fizzy stuff. I’m completely open to suggestions. I take all kinds of medication for my IBS and GERD. Antacids, Buscopan, Mebeverine, Metaclopramide (an anti-sickness). But they have a minimal effect when I have these stomach aches, bloating, nausea and loss of appetite.

    Thank you all in advance! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Stay safe!

    Ohhh food, my old friend and now constant foe

    As this Thanksgiving comes to an end tonight I wish all my #MightyTogether friends a good night.

    I am off to another dose of #nausea #Medication thanks to the beast that is #Gastroparesis and hopefully some sleep so long as #Fibromyalgia and the #Insomnia that accompanies it doesn’t make a guest appearance because I could really use a normal nights sleep. Ha! Who am I kidding? Normal? Now I feel like I may be delirious. And on that note, night all 🥴

    🔸Good afternoon Mighty GP Warriors!🔸 Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Do you have a plan of attack on a holiday based, food and more food?

    Hello all!

    I’m hoping that everyone is feeling the best that they can today and if you spend this holiday with a large group of family, maybe just a few, gather with friends, are currently solo, or even if you don’t really celebrate this day.

    Here is my question for you whichever way you spend it.

    What is your approach, your strategy, your plan of attack on a day that revolves around food?
    How do you manage it the best way you know how?

    🟩 ~tips, tricks, ideas and ways you manage are most welcome! It may just help someone that hasn’t found what works for them yet!~ 🟩

    I love all these men, that want to chat, just to find where u r from, if u r married, etc..

    They probably don't even have anything wrong with them IMO

    I've blocked soany men in the last 2-3 days, wow.

    I talked to one person regularly on here and this is supposed to be a support app???

    Where's the support???

    Now I know why I stay away and only check in periodically, it is me, and I knew it.

    #Emgality #ChronicMigraines #ChronicHeadaches #preventionmeds #migraineprophylactics #SideEffects #Pain #nausea

    My migraines have flared up ridiculously. I literally can't do anything but lay in pain with an ice pack trying not to puke. Has anyone ever tried Emgality for prevention of migraines? If so how was ur experience?My Dr just prescribed it but I've read nothing but horror stories of side effects online. Ican't get into the neurologist til Nov. so my primary is trying his best. I do have imitrex which helps but is limited in how many times a month it can be used. I've already maxed my limit. Anyway just wondering about Emgality or any other good prophylactic. I can't take topirimate and I'm already on amitriptyline and propanolol and magnesium (clearly not working well enough. )Any info will help. Thank you so much. 💓


    Help with Nausea

    Hi! I wanted to share a tip for those dealing with nausea.

    A couple years back my acupuncturist recommended getting nausea bracelets (also referred to as Sea-Bands). I found mine at Bartell Drugs. They can also be found on amazon, though.

    To find the acupuncture point, place three fingers right below your palm, at the beginning of your wrist. Press down with your thumb on the other side of the three fingers and feel around for the point. For those who’ve had acupuncture, it kind of feels like that, but for those who haven’t, it feels different than pressing down on a random point in your arm. That is a terrible description and I’m sure there are videos on the internet that can help. Anyway, place the little plastic bump of the bracelet on this spot and you’re good!

    It may take a little while to start working, but it’s really helped me and maybe can help you. Nausea can be terrible and I hope it eases soon for you.
