Thanks for the positive vibes and prayers. FYI 3 early morning feeling horrible. Stomach pain nausea no pain meds. I ran out didn't check for regular til I reached for a dose and had none. So reg Tylenol I pray it does something to help
Cant wait til the pharmacy opens. All the other Symptoms are nad as well but not unexpected. Definitely hard to deal with. I'm staying as still as I can due to dizziness and irregular heart beats at times. Eatting I'd going well. the Bray diet is my friend. crackers tea and ginger ale. I had rice yesterday do ffar. Do good
Thanks again y'all

Lulabel is right, ginger is fabulous-either the essential oil (put a little on a cotton ball, sniff a needed), candied (or like you would get with sushi), When my Dad was on chemo for his nausea (I kid you not) they used benadryl-apparently it worked well with the drugs he was on. It got to where they would say they were going to go get it and he would fall asleep LOL. For dizziness, Ask your dr about dramamine--it's been a Godsend for me. My pain will set off vertigo, and instead of dizziness like a 'normal' person, it feels like I'm on a rocking ship on high rough season keep saying who needs to go on a cruise, I just wait for vertigo to visit and I'm visiting a new Port (humor helps me a lot, sorry). Both benadryl & dramamine are over the counter, just tell your dr.

Newfibrogirl my older sister is going through chemo and she is getting Benedryl and she was also given a prescription for antinausea Medication. I don't know if you like spicy things because ginger candy, although it tastes good, I had to spit out because it burned my mouth. I hope you get some relief and that the doctor can give you something to help your belly feel better. In the meantime, rest and try to feel better. Hang in there. {{{Hugs}}}πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

Hey guys thanks you all for you wonderful ideas. I've taken noted of all of them and will give them all a try. I'm doing pretty good so far went to PT today. Had a few issues but was in good hands. .thanks again

@ Lulabel & Poods, thanks for sharing the alternate ginger ideas! I didn't know about these.

Newfibrogirl, I'm glad you were able to go to PT yesterday. I hope today is an easier day on you. I take Meclizine or Valium for my vertigo. Maybe your doc could give you a small dose of one or the other. The dizziness certainly adds to the nausea. Take care of yourself. Hugs love & prayers this time will pass quickly for you! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ
