It Makes Me Sick!

Some very special people

FPR has been in a sticky situation recently: he has been stuck on the Macbook, which has meant that I couldn’t get near it to type a post on here. I know I could have typed it on my iPad, but I prefer using the Macbook. Silly, isn’t it? Wotevva! That is why it’s been a while since my last post. (As I typed that last sentence I could hear The Last Post playing in my head!!!)

OK. Let’s get on to the business in hand…

Back in early September, I mentioned in this post having felt nauseous. This is something that happens occasionally. I don’t really remember it being an issue since I tried taking Amitriptyline back in 2015. The Amitriptyline caused me to suffer dreadful nausea and vomiting. Since that time, I have suffered bouts of nausea occasionally. However, those occasions are becoming more frequent and, consequently, more troublesome. I hadn’t attributed them to any particular cause but rather just viewed them as unpleasant things that happened once in a while. Recently, though, I have been wondering if there is an underlying cause for the nausea so I decided to check whether it is a recognised symptom of Fibromyalgia. No prizes for guessing what I discovered.

I can’t remember, now, which website I read about nausea being a symptom of Fibro but, because I wanted to add a link about nausea in this post, I did a quick search online and this site came up. The piece I read last week didn’t mention nausea as being a common symptom of Fibro so it was something of a revelation to read it in this post. This is probably a good time to remind you that I tend not to read about Fibromyalgia. I did so when I was first diagnosed but found the information so depressing that I decided not to read any more, unless I was looking for something specific. I was depressed enough, without adding lots of information about symptoms I didn’t have, but  which which might develop in the future.

The article I read the other day mentioned that sufferers of fibro-related nausea should consult their doctor about it. I don’t want to bother Dr. Azeer at the moment: instead, I shall see how things go. If the nausea keeps putting in an appearance and becomes a particular nuisance I may need to review that decision but, for the moment, I shall leave him in peace.
