has your chinese doc got an explanation why you are sick? mine thinks its my liver.. i also think the regular acupuncture helps with nausea ( though it is expensive!)
i am sorry that you are not doing well....are u still on mirtazapine? maybe you could try amitryptline instead? given you dont suffer any side effects?
Im also taking a new anti reflux drug which i think is helping a little as well.
have u tried reflux meds? it can be silent... no other symptoms other than nausea.
i am going to stick with my doctors that i have at the moment.. im going to see another gastro for a review in the coming weeks.. so i dont think i will see dr borody at the moment. ( given i dont have an infection or parasite im not sure he can help me)
keep your chin up... and i hope u feel better
Hi Aussiegirl2 - my Chinese doctor thinks it is a problem with my spleen. I have decided not to see him again at the moment. I may go back to him in the futre but having seen him 18 times over 4 mths and also another Chinese doctor 24 times perviously I think it is time to try something else.
While I think of it you should really find out if you are intolerant to certain foods such as gluten, dairy, etc or suffer from fructose malabsorption. I have tested myself and I am ok but I know that these can cause nausea even though these foods may not have caused problems earlier in life.
Dr Borody called me yesterday. He thinks I have an infection so he is going to send me some antibiotics, no doubt the same ones as he gave to you. He says that if my symptoms improve then this will prove that I have an infection and then I should have fecal transplantation. I assume that because you didn't respond positively to the antibiotics he figured you don't have an infection, is that correct?
BTW, do you have nay problems with your bowel movements? I am asking because whilst I am not constipated or have diarrhoea my bowels are not working correctly. Also I do get pains from time to time in my stomach, do you?
Good luck and keep in touch.
