Nausea as an IBS symptom?

I have recently been diagnosed with IBS and gastritis. I have have started a low FODMAP diet with good results. I had my gallbladdder removed two years ago and have been dealing with GI issues since then. For me one of my primary issues has been nausea, especially in the morning. I’m wondering if other IBS sufferers deal with nausea as I don’t see it as one of the main symptoms. Thank you.

    I often experience nausea during an IBS attack. The pain is so severe that I will sweat, get the chills, and get such thick saliva it causes me to gag. An gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester told me that’s a vagus nerve response and common for IBS sufferers.

    Hi, Besjordan – thanks for taking the time to submit your question! You are definitely not the only one that experiences nausea. And your’e also not the only one to experience GI issues after gallbladder removal. While we wait for others to chime in, I thought I’d share a couple of articles with you on these subjects:
