For the last 4 months my wife has been experiencing nausea every morning and it's really severe, as the day goes on the nausea is still present but does ease off a bit.
The last 10 days she also now has diarrhea in the mornings, as well as the nausea. She has now also encountered severe stomach pain, the nausea and pain seems to come in waves and it is extremely bad in the mornings when she is waking up. It can be anytime between 5am and 8am where it's extremely bad and she is unable to get out of bed and is extremely agitated. Also today she is going a wee a lot more and said it feels like she has an infection, whereas frequent urination is a common IBS symptom.
She had a few blood and still tests performed to rule out her thyroid and celiac, they came back negative and all clear. So from this the doctor suggested it's likely IBS with possibly gastritis as well.
The biggest thing for my wife is the mornings, no one can tell us why she feels like this in the morning and why it's more painful at that time of the day.
Has anyone experienced anything similar? Could this be gluten? Or something else? We are totally stumped and at the end of our wits.
On top of this she also had dizziness in the last 4 months, an MRI revealed lesions on the brain (after initial vertigo diagnosis) but the neurologists suggest the brain lesions and stomach issues are not related and 2 separate issues.
I'm reaching out to the masses to see if this is totally normal for IBS and see what worked for some people and didn't for others.
Were looking at a new food plan but the information online (Google) is so contradictory.
She is also on medication to control her sickness, anxiety and Lansoprazole to reduce the amount of acid in her stomach.
She has only just started that but has made no positive effect yet.
Appreciate any thoughts.
Thanks for your time.
