Re: Nausea and fatigue

Correct. I haven't had sex since November (my partner has been in Mexico and won't be back until the end of March - bad times!), and have had two periods since then, so definitely not pregnant.

Thanks for all the suggestions. It's true, I haven't been sleeping well (my downstairs neighbours make noise until about 1am then my next door neighbours start showering etc at 5:30am), plus I get really hot at night, despite sleeping au naturel! This makes for not a very good night's sleep.

I also imagine it could definitely be the post Crimbo hangover combined with lack of exercise (it's not because I don't have the time, it's because I'm lazy, and find it horribly difficult to get into). My own fault on these two counts, I think I just needed someone to tell me. I'll try and do something about these things I can change, and if it persists go to the doctor.

Thanks again for all the input.

P.S. I'm glad you can tell I'm female from my avatar, that face is so warped I'm almost wondering how you did it!

I suspect that there is frequently little real life resemblance to the photo that many EF members choose to use. ( in some cases I certainly hope that is the case) So didn't want to presume this one was female.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

I know I'm a little weird, but certainly not weird enough to put some random, (non-famous) strange-looking drunkard as my avatar. Actually, that doesn't sound like such a weird avatar after all. But that is me.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

Ok well turn off your radiator

and tell your neighbours to wash the night before.
and the other ones to go to bed earlier ( some of us need sleep)

Ok no babies and sorry to hear about the sex life, although if you're tired and sicky im sure sexy time isnt on your list of priorities

Also have a blood test to check for thyroid function - hypothyroidism can have a very debilitating effect and can cause anaemia and raised cholesterol - so worth checking.

You do not say if you are sleeping alright, just that you are tired. I ask because the times I have been really exhausted through lack of sleep (two prolonged period of bad insomnia and twice with new babies in the first year when still up feeding babies at night) I felt nauseous, was occasionally sick, dizzy and also passed out. Fixing the sleep problems (easier said than done) fixed the other symptoms.

I wish you well.
That sounds like a typical postpartum anemia. Good luck, mut be hard with two, can't really imagine, one gives me plenty of travail.

OP, I just went through a weird bug our little one gave us from creche. It was fatiguing like nuts, I felt like a zombie. No fever, but overall drowsiness, I dragged my feet all over, and I was so horribly nauseated. I had no appetite for a week (wished it stayed, but returned with evil force, hahaha). So there is something gastric going around, fo sho.

In terms of Motillium, I am freaked by it. It is super power, banned in the US over the counter, other countries have issues with it too. Domperidone is a brain meds, it's no aspirin that one should pop. It is unfortunately advertized here like something very light and since it really is very efficient, people don't realize how powerful it is and how careful one must be. I hated being on it, after I got food poisoned and couldn't function, but Motilium made me high and super out of it, things were wobbly and I couldn't really walk straight. So, be careful with domperidone, it plays heavily with your nervous system. It's no homeopathy, eventhough it sounds like it by the funky name.

I am a motilium lover- It doesn't bother me at all


But you are right, it's strong so be careful. There deffinately is, I had the runs for 5 days, vomited for over a week and I was so ill and dizzy that motilium was the last thing on my mind. I would still recomend taking it though so you can get on with your day but try to see a doctor this week

Re: Nausea and fatigue

I tend not to take medication unless I really can't avoid it (e.g. antibiotics for UTIs, some kind of painkiller for really bad period pains etc). I do have some Motilium in the cupboard which I bought a few days before visiting my boyfriend's family. I became nauseous really suddenly and it lasted almost a week (very embarrassing - the first night I was staying at his mother's house I couldn't eat the dinner she cooked because I felt so sick). I found it didn't really help, to be honest, but maybe I could give it a go if it persists.

Like I say, I think a change in lifestyle will do the world of good. I've been drinking a lot more than I would usually since my partner left for Mexico. Christmas and NYE were great excuses to keep the bad habit up, then it was like "ooo, I have to socialise now I'm back and living alone" which is another excuse. I'd say I've been drinking (not necessarily heavily) every 2-3 days. Not good. How long do you reckon it would take to start feeling better after a change like that if that's really the only reason I'm feeling bad? I'm reluctant to go to the doc when I don't know if it's really necessary (I'm the same in the UK where it's free to have an appointment).

Re: Nausea and fatigue

Well try not drinking for a few days but I doubt that is the problem as to why you are feeling sick...

I really believe you should go to the doctor. I understand that you don't want to go out of principle but the issue is that what your symptoms are could point to something more serious. If you find out its some virus then ok, but atleasst you have peace of mind.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

Do you feel differently after food or when you are very hungry? I think you see a doc, could be food poisoning, some bacteria..The weird bug virus seem to last for about 6 days, for me and friends who got it too. It's kinda low intensity but long.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

No, I feel pretty much the same most of the time. Well, not entirely true. It comes and goes in waves, but food/time of day doesn't seem to make much difference. Maybe I am lovesick.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

Take a pregnancy test anyway. Some women manage to have periods all the way through pregnancy and have no outward sign of being pregnant until they have a baby in their arms. It would rule it out easily & cheaply then you can concentrate on the other things that have been suggested.
