Bloated Abdomen & Nausea

Hello, this is my frist time to post on this site, and I'm really hoping to get some response. I'm very frustrated with how slllloooow it takes to get test results back and for the docs to tell you what is going on. About 23 days ago I woke up in the middle of the night feeling completley stomach sick, sweating, clammy hands, nauseous...and ever since then the nausea has not gone away. Every day I am nauseous for at least a few hours. It is heightened and worse with smells. And I am not pregnant. I had the urine test and blood pregnancy test done and both came back negative. Any kind of strong scent brings on the nausea. Resturants are bad, paint smells...and I'm on the couch feeling like I'm gonna be sick. No vomitting actually happens ever. My stomach is very very bloated and swollen looking. Most of my clothes aren't fitting me right around the waist now. My doctor has had lots of blood work done...all coming back normal. And resently I've had an abdomen & pelvic ultrasound and haven't gotten results back. It takes forever...and each day it's hard to work with the nauea. I'm on day 24 of nausea and can't handle this uncertainty anymore! Please help with any opinions and advice! I am 25 yr old in very good health, active and eat healthy. Thanks!!!

Re: Bloated Abdomen & Nausea

Im going through this same thing. Around Halloween I went to a resort with my kids and on the first night i got very nauseas, no vomitting though. The next day the same thing and i wound up in my room for a few hours until it subsided. Eating did & didnt make it go away. It really put a damper on our trip. I was waiting for something worse to happen but it pretty much stayed the same and luckily I was only an hour away from home.
When I returned home the same thing continued for a few more days so all in all I wasnt right for over a week. I thought it was a bug but I had no vomitting (although at times I did feel like it but if it was a bug i would be vomitting uncontrollably and no diarrhea. I was ok until this Saturday. I had plans to go to New York City with my friend who was traveling from another state to take the train with me which is close to my house. I started getting nauseas in the early morning and i figured id eat something and it would go away but it didnt. I was very nervous at this point as my friend was traveling and i didnt want to dissapoint everyone so I just hoped for the best. It wasnt until hours after I walked around a bit that it subsided and I was ok for the rest of the afternoon. Then yesterday the same thing and i woke up in the middle of the night at 3:00 with bad nausea and couldnt go back to sleep. Today it is on & off. I really dont think its a bug because again Im not vomitting uncontrollably & no diarrhea. Also I dont think i would get it twice in a row so close together. Tomorrow I go to the doctor. Im hoping he will order some tests and give me an anti-nausea medication. I know it really sucks as I cant make any major plans because Im afraid of getting sick. I was supposed to go away with my kids on a mini trip after x-mas but too afraid especially as this happened again to me. The last time I was this nauseas day after day was when I was pregnant and if I didnt have my tubes tied after my last child I would think I was pregnant but Im not.
I dont know what to tell you, maybe your body is fighting something since your tests all come out normal. Have you asked you doctor for an anti-nausea medication? Im hoping my doctor will give me one tomorrow because it is a horrible feeling trying to make plans or when I do I get sick there is nothing that helps this. The medication would at least take an edge off the nausea.
