The truth is that everyone has experienced that feeling of discomfort in the pit of his stomach. However, for the individual with fibro, it can be even worse.
This nausea can last only a day, a week or even several months. Some people may find that it is sporadic and others find that it occurs daily and threatens their quality of life.
While it is true that pain is something that people with fibro status seem to find the strength they need to go through, chronic nausea and the symptoms that accompany this can be so intense that they do not want to leave home. .
Nausea and other symptoms
In most cases, the symptom of nausea is not the only one. It is usually accompanied by other symptoms that tend to increase intensity and duration, such as the following:
Palpitations of the heart
Why so much nausea?
The truth is that often, nausea, especially when accompanied by vomiting, are really “friends”, as they can be the way in which our body eliminates certain toxins or remind us that we are sensitive, or even allergic, to certain foods . On the other hand, chronic nausea can be debilitating.
Statistics show that between 40-70 percent of people with the fibro condition often experience the symptoms of chronic nausea and vomiting.
On some days, you may only experience mild “nausea” when brushing your teeth. On other days, the symptoms are as intense as vomiting when you smell certain foods that are cooked in the kitchen.
This is the reason why the nausea associated with the fibro condition is often compared to the nausea of pregnancy and pregnancy; You never know when you are going to hit.
Causes of fibromyalgia Nausea
The truth is that almost anything can trigger nausea in people with fibro. Many of the pain triggers can also trigger nausea, dizziness and other symptoms of fibro.
The fibro condition is often described as a “group” of different conditions. Experts agree that the fibro condition covers several conditions, such as the following:
1) Migraines: studies have revealed that more than 50 percent of people with fibro also suffer from migraines and chronic headaches.
Often, migraines last several days and are accompanied by dizziness, nausea and vomiting due to nerve constriction.
2) Irritable bowel syndrome: one of the most common side effects of fibro is IBS. This is a condition in which the small intestine is very sensitive, which causes cycles of constipation, cramps and diarrhea. These symptoms can also cause nausea and other symptoms.
3) Imbalance: this is a very common experience of individuals with fibro and describes an imbalance in balance. Your inner ear does not work properly, which causes nausea, lightheadedness and dizziness.
4) Hypotension mediated by neurons: almost all people who have fibro have experienced neurally mediated hypotension at least once in their lives.
This is a condition that occurs when you wake up after sitting or lying down for a period of time. When you stop, your blood pressure drops, causing dizziness, sweating, nausea and heart palpitations.
5) Weak eye muscles: when you have fibro, the muscles of your eye may be weak: if you have ever experienced nausea while turning your head to see traffic while driving or reading, you can attest to this. What can you do?
