Re: Chronic Back Pain & Nausea
AnnD could be right as many medicines can cause nausea, so can many diseases. I would tell you in this world you have to be your own advocate as we cannot depend on the doctors to remember or even know everything. However, you should look up all the medicines and all the diseases that patient has, and know the side effects and when those side effects can occur, and not rule out a new problem just because nausea is a side effect of a medicine and or just because she has been on that medicine and never been nausea before. It's a big responsibility isn't it. Nurses get paid big money to this everyday. This way you can tell the doctor what is happening and that it seems different form what you know about her health. Perhaps you need to space your medicines differently from each other medicines can interact with each other. Most reflux medicine is taken at 6am on a empty stomach.
