Please help! I have been so sick.
Dear Feeling Helpless, Do you have a diagnosis for the cause of your nausea? that's where you need to start. Her cyclic vomiting and abdominal migraines turned out to be POTS.

For those of you who have tried many pharmaceutical drugs and are not finding relief or do not like side effects of the medicine I HIGHLY recommend talking to your physician about the potential medicinal uses of Marijuana.

Know how you feel. I'm in so much pain and always throwing up. Wish it would just go away. Feel worthless all the time. But it won't always be that way. Rev. 21:4,5. Talk to one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I'm still ill, and need medication. But believe me Jehovah's Witnesses have helped me the most. Know what most people think.

Rest of info. Effexor helps me feel better emotionally. To just flat keep from crying lamictal worked. I know what it's like to be in so much pain and nausea with no end in sight. As far as meds go hope that helps you. Also go to JW.Org. Hope helps Me just get through the day.

It knocks me out when I take it but at least I get some sleep and a rest from the pain and nausea. Also as far as feeling better emotionally, because of hurting so bad and not being able to do what I need to. I've tried varies things. But believe it or not an older medication is actually the one that seems to help m
