    I've had FM for a while, then recently the nausea...and after a couple of months investigating, and going to Dr.s, I 100% believe I have a Candida problem...and have had it for a long time. If you'll do a search on your computer for Candidiasis, you can compare notes, and see if this may be a problem with you. I don't think it is uncommon in FM/CFS sufferers. I hope this may help...

    I've always had this. I had it even more before meds.

    Some days just have nausea all days, other days not so much. But this is a very common symptom

    your not alone, i cant believe there are so many of us out there. i know what you mean about not wanting to kiss or relate to anyone, i usually just go to sleep and hope tomorrow will be better. the meds im taking are helping somewhat in that the feeling doest last as long but its always hanging around to pop up again,

    I seem never to be free of nausea I am taking Domperidone at the momment but it doesn't seem to help much I also get headaches with it do you? I have also had problems over the last six months with dizzyness.... never rains but it pours !!!!. I am seeing an accupunturist next week see what is on offer there, also waiting for an appointment to go to a clinic that specialises in FM / ME ect. but I am told it will be a long wait because it is so popular.
    Best Wishes

    Curious how many of you have CMP in addition to FM AND did the nausea come on after an injury? I have twice suffered a neck/back injury and both times suffered severe nausea. I've learned it comes from injury to the neck area. Try heat and ice on the area. Maybe it'll help some of you :)

    Yes I suffer from nausea all the time too. But it seems as though it hits me when I awaken, almost like morning sickness. I know this is going to sound strange, and it is......but I found that chewing on gum helps me. Not all the time, but for some reason it seems to help take that nasty taste out of my mouth and get my stomache juices flowing. Let me know if you try it. Also I get very nausea when I brush my teeth????? It's really weird! Keep your head up (if it doesnt hurt your neck lol) unlike myself:-}

    There's something about chewing gum, or even brushing your teeth helps mild nausea!

    I don;'t have chronic nausea with FM, but I get migraines with nausea. When I get them, oddly enough I can tolerate the migraine pain, but the nausea does me in. I take 25mg OTC benedryl (drammamine would work, too---something with diphenhydramine) and it takes care of the nausea for me until the headache passes.

    Good luck, I hope you find something that works. I hate that nauseous feeling.

    I also have chronic nausea and vomiting....I at one time asked my doc about phenergan. He told me it was a good drug but it has long term side affects....he told me that it can cause chronic stuttering in the speech. I was shocked at this news so he wouldnt give it to me. Are you having any of this?? How long have you been on it??? Not trying to make you worry, just giving you the info i have been given on the drug....Let me know if you have any side effects from it.....

    DebP :) God Bless!!!

    I have chronic nausea. I'm a big baby when it comes to taking medicines, especially ones that knock me out. I was started off with phenegran. That would have me out for 12+ hours. Someone had suggested Compazine. Perfect. Helps the nausea without the sleepy side effects.

    I agree with Packman about the Phenergan. I take it when I need it, which fortunately isn't every day, but it is the ONLY med i've ever found that really works. It comes in two forms, so if you are so sick that you can't swallow a pill there are also suppositories. sorry for that mental image, but wanted to let you know. I also don't have any bad side effects from it, but it will knock you out for awhile, and that's not always a bad thing either LOL! BTW, about the mint thing, I also believe that peppermint tea isn't a bad thing to try, it may also give you some relief.
