We’ve all experienced that sick feeling from time to time. However, for those with Fibro it’s often more frequent and the nausea is worse. Nausea can last for a day, a week or even several months. Some individuals may find that it is sporadic, and others find that it occurs on a daily basis, dramatically impacting their quality of life.
In most cases, nausea is not the only symptom.
Typically, it’s accompanied by:
- Heart palpitations
- Feeling faint
- Difficulty breathing
So why Fibro nausea?
Nausea in Fibro is actually a ‘friend’. It’s our body’s way of getting rid of certain toxins related to oxidative stress. This nausea is often compared to morning sickness during pregnancy – often, sufferers never know when it’s going to hit. Many of the triggers for pain can also trigger nausea, dizziness, and other Fibro symptoms.
Fibro co-factors that lead to nausea include:
- Headache and migraines
- Irritable bowel syndrome, which is a common Fibro side effect where the lower intestine is very sensitive resulting in cycles of constipation, cramping, and diarrhoea.
- Disequilibrium, which is a very common experience caused by an imbalance in equilibrium. The inner ear does not function properly, causing nausea, light-headedness, and dizziness.
- Neutrally mediated hypotension, a condition that occurs when standing up after sitting or lying down. When standing the blood pressure drops, causing dizziness sweats, nauseous, and heart palpitations.
- Weak eye muscles: Fibro sufferers eye muscles tend to be weak.
