Discovered I had one in the cupboard and, as I thought, definitely not!

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.
yesssss do so

ooooops sorry didn't see your message !!
ah well sounds like you're lovesick then.
For both situations, the solution might be a ticket to Mexico ?

Re: Nausea and fatigue

No can do, neither money-wise nor time off work-wise (normally the latter wouldn't be a problem, but I've already agreed to cover some classes for other teachers who are taking holiday time, plus I need to give 6 weeks notice).

It would even be nice if we could talk more than 2 minutes every couple of days.

Anyway, I'm sure that has something to do with my mood, but not sure it's related to the nausea. Still, am drinking less alcohol now, hopefully it will make a difference soon. Going for a walk tomorrow, let's see if it works!

Well, you might worry too much, too, gives some people tummy aches. If you are sad, socialize. And light therapy is good, too. Why don't you guys do Skype? (or, look at this )

Re: Nausea and fatigue

His internet connection there is absolutely dreadful and renders Skype completely and utterly useless. He should buy a phone card, that would be the best solution, but he seems to spend every waking minute in the field where there's no signal anyway, and by the time he gets back it's the middle of the night for me.

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.
How long has this been going on and how long in between the waves? I ask because you mentioned Mexico. It could be something like giardia, which is very easy to get and very hard to detect and could cause your symptoms, including the sudden vomiting. Something to consider if you don't get better soon.

(Long distance relationship , been there and I sympathize.)

He doesn't have one. He's had to change location to where he thought he would be and is staying in a hotel which only has a phone at reception.

I haven't been to Mexico. He left at the end of November and won't be back until the end of March, but thanks for the suggestion.

Long distance is massive poo, particularly when it's impossible to talk to each other. I managed to cope last year when we could Skype, but it's impossible now.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

Hey how are you feeling?

I just wanted to say I went to the doctor today and I was so weak and grey that she was almost certain without seeing my bloods that I am anaemic. I already started my meds and she gave me 3 days of total bed rest.

I also learnt that if you are taking anti acid tablets this can decrease your ability to absorb iron.
I was also thinking, aren't you so unbelievably lucky to have someone that you love so much that may comfort you! I wish I had someone to love so much

Keep your chin up

Re: Nausea and fatigue

I'm feeling a little better, I do think part of it is probably worrying (I've always suffered from strong waves of nausea when I worry about something). The situation with the OH is terrible, and on top of that, I just spoke to him on the phone, and the first thing he said was "I'm dying". He sounds ill, like a really bad cold, maybe sinusitis or something (he's forgetting the 2 months of bronchitis I had!).

I think maybe it's digestive. I've always been quite a gassy person, but sometimes holding it in can make me feel really, really ill. I'm terribly sorry if the person whose house I went to dinner for this evening is reading this () but after letting it all out, I feel much better! It's a terrible (although often entertaining) affliction that I seem to have, no matter what I eat/drink. Might have to do some research on foods/drinks that settle the stomach.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

... Or what irritates it?!....
I'm still quite sure if you are tired you have a defficiency in something.
About the gas you are so right. Beans, too much meat, too many eggs, too much alcohol... the list is endless :S

Re: Nausea and fatigue

It literally doesn't matter what I eat at all. I could go the whole day without eating anything and I'd still be farting.

I think maybe the tiredness is related to lack of sun. Maybe vitamin D? Something I could try, I suppose.

Re: Nausea and fatigue

You can't eat Vitamin D.

You need to do a sunbed. But go ahead. I do them when I feel low. They help pluss, I have a sexy little tan after

Did you ever have your bite checked?

If your teeth are not well aligned then you can mix air in your food when you chew and when you swallow you get air in you & you fart a lot.

If this is your problem then the farts do not smell so bad, because it is mostly air.

Don't ask how I know this

Recently I've been feeling really nauseous and tired constantly. If it weren't for the fact that it's biologically impossible, I'd think I was pregnant. Does anybody else go through phases of this?
Only when binge drinking!

Hmm... I've never heard of this. About 95% of my farts don't smell, but dentists always tell me my teeth are "perfect" (not true, but I do look after them - maybe that's what they're referring to). So do I go to the doctor about that or the dentist? Seems odd to go to the dentist about farts...

I would be extremely sad to lose my farting abilities. The volume/length of my farts are notorious, I feel like it's part of my personality.

Pretty normal for me, as I generally only eat dinner (but still fart all day)!

Yes it is a lot to lose.

Dentists for orthodontic treatment. They do not really know how good your bite is before they do a bite check; involves you biting into plastic moulds filled with a sort of wax or clay, then they make a plaster cast from these moulds & see how your bite actually works.

Or you could go to a vineyard & get some corks?

Re: Nausea and fatigue

Have you gained weight recently or have had problems breathing through the nose?

If so, do you snore? If so, you could have snoring which causes you to wake up during the night. If it is really bad, it could be sleep apnea.
