Digestive problems: nausea, diarrhoea, bloating, GERD

I am sorry to hear that you are dealing with nausea.  I dealt with nausea for 14 months when I stopped taking Prozac.  I couldn't eat.  I lost 55 pounds.  I tried Zofran but only took it a few times.  I would drink protein drinks.  I would also eat pudding, soup and crackers.  Another thing I had to do was stop taking my multivitamin and fish oil, they made my nausea so much worse.  I would chew on ginger throughout the day.  I wish I had some more helpful advise.

How did you figure out your fish oil capsules were making you sick? Just trial and error? I take 1 everyday. I'm nauseous most of the day.

My dr gave me zofran also, but I only take it if the nausea is unbearable.

I haven't lost any weight.

Hope you are doing well.

Thanks for answering my questions :)

Take care,

Frogie

I don't believe that the fish oil was the cause of my nausea.  I just decide to stop taking it to see if it helped with the nausea.   I was off the fish oil for at least two months before my nausea improved.  Since I have delayed gastric emptying I figured that the fish oil was just sitting in my stomach.

 

I only took the Zofran a couple of times because I was scared of taking it.  When I did take it, it only helped for about two hours.  I had days that I would take Benadryl to help with the nausea.   I figured that had less side effects then the Zofran. 

 

I think with the nausea it is trial an error, but I also think it is time.  Being nauseous 24/7 for 14 months was awful.  I am now able to eat and actually get hungry.  That should give encouragement to anyone who has been suffering with nausea.

I have stopped taking my supplements. Hopefully they are are giving me the nausea. Probably not but wishful thinking. I have zofran but only take it when it's unbearable. I might try Benadryl, I didn't know that helped with nausea.

I'm so tired of it. But it only happens as soon as I open my eyes and lasts until noon or so. But too much for me! I eat but it's a lot of chicken and veggies, very bland. I hope I don't have it for 14 months.

I'm glad to hear you are better! :)

Good to hear it does get better.

Take care,

Have you noticed any improvement with your nausea after stopping the supplements?  The past couple of days I have been having stomach pains.  It feels like I pulled a muscle, but I don't think that is what is going on.   I hope it clears up and is not a new symptom of withdrawal.

Hi O2:

Sorry your not feeling well. Hopefully it is a side effect.

No, it hasn't let up. But I have a dr appt Tuesday to see what I can do.

I hope you feel better soon :)

Frogie and O2bhappy,

Thank you for your advice! I am sorry that you are dealing/have dealt with nausea too. I've not taken the zofran yet, but will try if it gets to the point where I am retching again. I did try this bracelet thing that has an electrical pulse and it was TERRIBLY uncomfortable, felt like fire going through my hand nerves, so I wouldn't recommend that. I've been working from home the past week and this has been the most helpful so far- i'm distracted a bit by my work AND close to my kitchen so I just eat every hour which has made a big difference overall. Of course the foods I'm eating are very bland (potatoes, fruit) and can't do raw veggies. I'll look into Nauzene, thanks for that recommendation. I also ordered the China Oel but haven't tried it since I had so much peppermint tea lately that my stomach felt sort of burned out on it. I have been smelling it and that seems to help (only for a second, but if I have it near me, it does take the edge off). I noticed that when the insomnia is bad, the nausea matches that- ugh! Thanks again for the recommendations and support!

I think eating small bland meals is the best.  Also try drinks like Boost or Ensure.  Some days that was all I could stomach.  I also lived on chocolate pudding.  I drank a lot of hot green tea.  I also think distraction is good, but it is hard to distract yourself when you feel so bad. 

 

One other thing...if you don't want to take the Zofran try Benadryl.  It actually helps with nausea.

Sorry for a TMI topic but ever since having WD, every time I want to go #2, I have diarrhea or very loose stools. Does anyone have this problem and what solutions have you taken to help with it?

 

Doesn't matter what I eat, this happens :(

By request - some info I wrote on Frogie's thread on enzymes:

 

Where do I get that Digest Gold?

 

I got mine from iHerb.  It's not cheap.  There is a product here in Australia that is 80% as good as Digest Gold, and maybe half the price.  

 

Go to this page:  http://au.iherb.com/...0-Capsules/7056

 

In the ingredients, you will see a list of enzymes:  

Digest Gold contains:  Amylase, protease, glucomylase, lactase, alpha galacsodase, cellulase, lipase, beta glucanase, maltase, xylanase, invertase, paclinase, hemicellulase.  Covers all possible bases, apparently.

 

A local product (Nature's Own Digestive Ease, all vegetarian, manufactured 30 minutes away) contains lactase, amylase, protease, lipase, cellulase, and a better description of what it does.  

 

It's in a ginger base - I also have a special ginger, turmeric, (and something else) root powder made by a local chemist (that's a chemist, not a pharmacist  http://www.biohawk.com.au/) that I sprinkle on food or put in bread mix or pancakes to break down proteins.  If you use Ginger, there's a good chance it came from Queensland - 80% of the world's ginger comes from here.  Additionally, there are over 400 species of ginger, each with different properties - some are just ornamental, some have different medicinal characteristics.  Turmeric is a cousin to ginger. 

 

Digestive Ease also contains papain (from papaya) and bromelain (from pineapple) - these fruits can "digest" meats & proteins without help from stomach acid.

 

So here's what the label says:

Lactase - breaks down lactose in milk (like I said)

Amylase - breaks down carbs

Papain, protease, & bromelain - breaks down protein

Lipase - breaks down fats and oils

Cellulase - breaks down cellulose, or plant carbohydrate.

 

So you kinda see how the names work. 

 

There are 2 other kinds of enzymes - Betaine HcL (which is now falling out of favour in preference for) and TMG (tri-methyl-glycine - sounds healthy, no?).  I take betaine HcL with food every day, and the complex digestive enzyme formulas when I share food with others and have less control over what I eat.  Like at restaurants.  Instead of griping that there may be wheat or dairy, I just take an enzyme if I think there may be something I react to.  I still order carefully, but don't panic over loss of control.  It won't FIX the problem, but it keeps me from getting completely sick.

 

One other thing - I know I mentioned it before - and I mention it a lot:  Deglycinated Licorice (DGL).  These come in lozenges and are awesome for nausea.  Licorice (I used to take it as a supplement, but can be dangerous for the heart) has this glycinate stuff in it, the DGL has that removed, so is safe to take.

 

I have given you all that information so that you can find a digestive aid for you.

 

What do you have the most difficulty with?  Dairy?  Carbs?  Fats?  Take a digestive enzyme with your food.  Get to know the different

(nnn)-ase's and find what works for you.

 

Digest Gold is expensive.  I buy the local product, when I can find it on special.  But I use the Digest Gold, too.  I mentioned it first, because it covers most of the bases.

Re:  Himalayan Salt

Ok, I'll drink more water. I have been bad about that. Do I just put the salt in the water and drink it? How much salt and how often? I have been drinking mint tea.

 

You can do that - I just use the pink salt whenever I want salt. Please do not use Morton or regular "kitchen salt."  It is

an industrial product.  Use natural Pink Himalayan Salt or Celtic Sea Salt.  

 

If I have had a dehydrating attack of IBS, or feel that my kidneys are "dry," I will have a little - a few twists of the salt-grinder - in a 16 oz beverage.  I suffered kidney dysfunction on the lithium, so I'm sensitive to when my kidneys aren't working well.

Because of this sensitivity, I must caution you against Coca-cola.  It is dehydrating, and not just from the caffeine.  If you are dehydrated, it is the last thing you should have.  It's probably not good for nausea, either.  After all, you can use it to clean your car engine - what would that do for the delicate balance of your gastro intestinal tract?

 

I love a good Coke - the ones in Atlanta are the best.  But if it is aggravating your symptoms - it's worth a try to see if you can eliminate the symptoms by eliminating the Coke!  What if it is as simple as that?

 

I have been taking a splash of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)  or lemon juice in my water, especially overnight for sipping.  That is good for the tummy, and may heal some of the damage the PPI's gave you.

 

LOL Ali telling you so succinctly:  the drugs cause rebound of the very effect they are meant to treat.  Yep!  She's right!  It may be awhile before you are normal after quitting the PPI's.  

 

I'm keeping my eyes out for natural nausea remedies.  The ACV water and lemon water come highly recommended.  It was hard to drink the ACV water at first, but now that I've gotten used to it, I like it.  The trick is to make it not too strong.  Very good for the gut, if you can drink it!

I've also been learning more about bone broth.

 

https://draxe.com/the-healing-power-of-bone-broth-for-digestion-arthritis-and-cellulite/

 

He has a "remedy" for bloating and GERD & sluggish digestion, called a Sole.  He says it is effective enough to use instead of the awful stuff they give you before a colonoscopy.

 

I have not tried it yet, but next time I have an attack, I would like to - 

 

Here is the recipe:  https://draxe.com/salt-water-flush-recipe/

 

and here is his reasoning behind it:

https://draxe.com/salt-water-flush/

 

This Sole, or Salt Water Flush, is a DETOX remedy, and should not be used by those suffering akathisia, or acute withdrawal symptoms.  Any detox when you are having withdrawal symptoms  runs the risk of making it worse.

 

I'll let you know when I try it.

Hi!

 

Just wanted to share that DGL licorice has really helped with GERD and nausea. I know that licorice can be stimulating, but the DGL licorice shouldn't have effects on blood pressure.

My stomach was the first thing to recover. I went from chronic constipation to chronic diarrhea got off the drugs and now have an appetite and normal bowel movements :)

HOW ENCOURAGING! I often wonder if this will ever improve (like everything else!)

 

My stomach issues began with a stint of 9 months of nausea the first year, then 7 months straight the next year.

The following year I had indigestion, cramps, pain, aching and was told I had gallstones

the following year I had gall surgery which was horrendous and I often wonder if it was a waste of time

It has taken 7 months to get over the surgery and I still have aches, pain, gas, constipation, etc.

A catscan has returned normal results much to my surprise as in the area of the appendix it is always painful, sometimes better than other times.

 

Yesterday a severe attack of pain and the only thing I can put it down to is the tiny bit of fat on the small chop I ate. I normally have one bowel movement a day (on Movicol) but I went twice. Went to bed at 8pm and couldn't sleep until I got up at 11pm and had another movement. I am now wondering if fat causes this severe paini/cramp.

 

I am on a fat free diet and IBS diet already but trying to introduce fats back in gradually (dietician's advice due to weight loss). Along with trying to solve what foods cause anxiety and recent rapid pulse, it is very trying as I have to keep a food diary and nothing seems to prove anything.

I was reading the thread and came across your post. My naturopath told me that it's important to take Ox Bile if your gall bladder has been removed. You may or may not already know this. Thought I'd share just in case. ????

Hi , anyone else with gastointestinal issues, reflux etc AFTER being of SSRI for some time ??  Can Prozac affec the stomach muscles ? Anyone with information in this matter ? Can the receptors in the stomach heal ?

 

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2144406/Antidepressants-effects-Happy-pills-digestive-problems.html

 

Asking because I am scared 14 years on this drug has destroyed my stomach receptors ...:/

 

I am suffering from severe LPR (larnyphageal reflux ) since 9 months severe and its 3 years since I came of completely Prozac (as you ´can see in my signature it wasn't easy ) but its only now 2 years after that the issues with the reflux has become severe--- can it be comnnected to all this years of Prozac ? ?? I have done several examinations now and the only thing theý found so far is that my LES (lower esophageal spincter) relaxes and doesn't close at it should...

 

Very grateful to your reply!

Kindest regards,

I was found to have a hernia in that same area where yours does not close... it is common in wd to have these issues. 

 

and it just dawned on me that this may be one of the early sysmptoms of pooped out or 

tach·y·phy·lax·is
ˌtakəfiˈlaksəs/
noun
MEDICINE
 
  1. rapidly diminishing response to successive doses of a drug, rendering it less effective. The effect is common with drugs acting on the nervous system.
     
    I wish I had of clued in when this started and found a way to taper. 
     
    As for healing this I have no magic answers I wish I did. Drink a lot of water walk after every meal sorry that is all I got and I have tried everything... candied ginger did help some as did the fast melting tumbs.. and soda water some times different times different things sleeping sitting up helped too.

Has anyone needed treatment for another condition but couldn't take the medicine because it would cause your med to increase while you're going through withdrawal? If anyone else has or had this problem, did you try to treat once you were stabilized? Did it help where you didn't feel withdrawal while taking the medication/s to treat your condition? Or did you still have the same issue? I believe I'm going through gastritis from my med and can't treat it with a PPI because I go through more withdrawal and feel all these side effects. I'm not one whose normally on a PPI. 

Thank you to anyone that can help me with this.

Hi JC,

 

Its called an "enema"...This can also be induced by putting a tsp of bicarbonate of soda into a glass and adding water then downing it.

 

Lets just say I drank it (it was disgusting) and was on the loo for about 3 days non-stop!!!

LOL JC I thought an "enema" was something you put in the other end!

 

I knew I wasn't game to try a "Sole" - though I can think of times when that sort of cleansing might be beneficial (like serious constipation - it's better than taking a laxative).

 

I still hold that Bone Broth is awesome, though!

I am sorry to hear that you are dealing with nausea.  I dealt with nausea for 14 months when I stopped taking Prozac.  I couldn't eat.  I lost 55 pounds.  I tried Zofran but only took it a few times.  I would drink protein drinks.  I would also eat pudding, soup and crackers.  Another thing I had to do was stop taking my multivitamin and fish oil, they made my nausea so much worse.  I would chew on ginger throughout the day.  I wish I had some more helpful advise. 

I realize I'm responding to an old post here, but in the 6 months since this has started I've lost about 60 pounds. 

 

Whenever anxiety is high, I feel extremely nauseous and can't eat. I also have trouble relaxing so I'm often on the move. With health anxiety it's really hard not to worry that it's something worse. 

 

Any suggestions for foods?

Hi guys,

 

I've read a few others have experienced digestive problems and other gut issues while reducing anti depressants. Not sure if it's from medication or H-pylori but I definitely have a bad gut. 

Ive tried the pure encapsulation today and felt sick from it as it had over 12 different ingredients. Don't know which one I was reacting to. Hoping someone can recommend a digestive enzyme that doesn't contain so many ingredients? 

 

Thanks in advance.

I take Schiff Digestive Enzyme for Irritable Bowel Support and Metamucil. It helps me. I take the digestive enzyme morning and night and Metamucil in the afternoon.

 

Good luck on your quest.

Did you try the Schiff Digestive Enzyme for Irritable Bowel Support? I take 1 morning and 1 at night and I take Metamucil in the afternoon. It helps a lot with the bloating, indigestion, pain and cramps. It also helps keep me regular. DGL also helps me with bloating and indigestion. Peppermint will help some too. 

 

Good luck!

I have just undergone a gastroscopy and colonoscopy due to a positive result from the National bowel test you get in the mail. 

 

 

It was discovered I still have the inflammation in in the lower oesophagus and top of stomach I had several years ago.  He galled it gastritis.  This would explain my nausea, indigestion, full stomach and belly discomfort. 

 

 

The interesting thing was that the doctor who did the procedure thought I must be taking aspirin, so I reckon it has to be the Paxil.  I also found a comparison between a/d’s and Paxil rated the highest for gastro issues.  I also looked up gastritis and found that the number one cause is "certain drugs".

 

 

I had myself convinced I had bowel cancer!  That was a relief finding it was not, but that the bleeding is from the “haemorrhagic gastritis in the antrum.”

 

 

This may help others who have gastro problems and to understand why.

 

 

Stress can make it worse and eating certain foods makes it worse.  It helps to eat smaller meals more frequently.

Well, first, you should post this in your thread.

Next, saying that "nothing helps" indicates that you are approaching this from a global (all or nothing) negative approach.  How much better it would be if you would post what you tried and what happened.  I can think of several things which are excellent for bloating, like activated charcoal or bentonite, lemon water, peppermint tea, ginger, for indigestion - enzymes, DGL (DeGlycinated Licorice), probiotics.  Cramps in stomach = stop eating wheat and maybe even go totally gluten free.  The current hybridised wheat grown is not meant to be digested - it is, literally, indigestible, and yet it is in all of your food, including spices.  They doubled or trebled the allergens in the wheat when they hybridised it to get better yield per acre, and now - they put it in nearly every food.  Have you tried these?  How did that work for you?

 

* * *

I have suffered some backup in the small intestine.  Once it gets to the large intestine, things move fine, but the small intestine can be so firm that it sometimes protrudes and blocks the large.
 

There are people who sell complex and expensive herbs for small intestine cleansing (again, this is detox protocol:  do not do if suffering withdrawal), and my research pointed me to the salt cleansing sole.  (again, only this time I'm desperate enough to try it.)

 

This might help for bloating and indigestion.  One of the things the drugs do is slow down your gut bugs, and slow digestion.  This isn't good for health in so many ways.

I did my first sole this morning -2 Tablespoons Australian Lake Salt in a Litre of warm water, chased by a litre of fresh cool water.

 

It was hard to drink, and took me a 1/2 hour to drink the salt water.  Maybe that's too long - they recommend downing it as fast as possible (preferably within 5 minutes).

 

It did not do much, but the texture of my belly feels softer and more pliable.  It may be that I'm more locked up than I thought I was - I got no laxative effect at all, just a little tummy rumbling as the salt water moved through my tummy, and having to pee a lot.

I will be trying it for a few days in a row to see if I can get the small intestine to release.

Maybe if I put lemon in it, I will be able to drink it more quickly and get better effect.

But so far - basically nothing (other than the fact that I've drunk over 3 litres of water today!).

Well sorry, I posted in your thread...

It seems to me I was suffering a lot and I ended up being searching on your thread for info..

Grammatical error - " To read it as Nothing helps 'me'." Not global perspective.

And I tried lot of things.. that are difficult to get here in India and what people suggested over last 2 years.

 

ACV.. ( BRAGGS). KEFIR.. NOW 25 billion CFU.. buttermilk.. omega3.. lemon water.. Antibiotics( rifaximin) .. Bicasodyl.. etc.. Homeopathy.. Ayurveda.. and etc etc..  so I put is as short as nothing.. may be my anxiety let me to not write down.

 

Sorry again.. will not post here hereafter.

@bhasski it is not my thread - it is a community thread.  This is a place to share information that will help others who are suffering.

 

Your new post is more descriptive, thank you.  Even better would be telling us how you tried these protocols and what happened. Think of the community when you post here, and try and help others.

More information on the Sole / Salt flush.  Day Two of the "cleanse" resulted in (TMI, sorry) runny poo, but no movement.   I did manage to get the saltwater down in 5 minutes, but was unable to chase it with a whole litre of water like on the first day.

My conclusion is that the "salt flush" works much like an osmotic laxative like Movicol, maybe more natural, maybe a little harsher.  

I don't know how many times I would have to do it to break up what feels like rocks in my small intestine, but it doesn't seem to be effective for me unless I did it for a whole month, and I can't stand a whole month of runny poo that doesn't move.

I would like to try a few things before taking this to an MD...but I don't think the Sole / salt flush is the solution for me.

Not having a good time with GERD......currently experiencing a "flare up".

 

Painful throat, spasms, inflammation, almost a choking sensation.

 

Seeing GP tomorrow, and hope and pray I don't get referred for endoscopy :(

Sorry to hear that JC:

 

They might have you take something for GERD. I did for years and tapered off of it.

 

It could be stress related too. 

 

Keep me posted.

Thanks Frogie, yes it'll be stress related.  

 

Very unpleasant symptoms (second I've had them time in 2 yrs).  Could be worse I guess.

 

I still have a box of Omzaprole left over.

 

Ughhh!
