Idiopathic Nausea

My wife suffers from chronic idiopathic nausea. She is a 69 year old white non-diabetic person. No underlying diseases;however, she has periphal neuropathy of the lower extremities and non-Parkinson tremor. She has moderately high C reactive protein, gastoparesis, and has had facial (mostly resolved) Bell's palsy. She has taken Zolfran, Prevacid, sub-lingual Ativan to no avail. She is being successful treated for underactive thyroid with 30 mg of Armour. Blood tests are normal, upper G.I., fine, small bowel test good, lower G.I. unremarkable. She finds relief with a 50% diluted blackberry brandy. She can eat a normal dinner and not suffer the nausea at night. No known food allergies or respiritory distress, she never smoked. Thank you and God Bless!

Hi
have a look in the threads, for one about chronic idiopathic nausea in this area and you will find others who suffer it. Most of us have been put on a tricyclic antidepressant ( not for depression) but because it can block the nausea receptors in the brain. she should ask her doctor aBout it. ( either amitryptiline or mirtazapine) i have to take 50 mgs a night but it does help with the nausea

Re: Idiopathic Nausea

I agree with previous poster, I was just diagnosed and given tricyclic meds.

Try doing a search on Functional Dyspepsia and ask her doctor if this could be related...

Re: Idiopathic Nausea

Hi

I was started on Desipramine 10mg
Today I am not feeling well. I thought everything was going to get better!
I guess I'll have to wait the recommended time which is 2-6 weeks before I notice results
