Nausea!

So, I’ve been nauseous since the beginning of September. I had a low grade fever and after a few days of being so sick I couldn’t stand up I went to the doctor. She diagnosed me with a stomach virus and said it would run it’s course. Two weeks later it was back, the same thing, with no nausea remedy working. The doctor prescribed a nausea medication but it takes forever to work and makes me sleep for hours.

And now it’s like this “virus” has never left. I’ve been through worse health wise but this is really interfering with my life. I missed Tyler singing at our town’s tree lighting ceremony last week, an event I’ll never get back. I’ve had to put off or miss going to see movies with him. I feel like I am a complete disappointment to him.

My doctor ordered an ultrasound which revealed a small stone in my gallbladder which could be the cause of my nausea. She recommended I see a surgeon to discuss having my gallbladder removed! As I am quite attached to my internal organs I scheduled an appointment with a Gastroenterologist. The first appointment was in February! I couldn’t live like this for that long so I called her office a couple of days later and they had a cancellation for this week. I see her Friday morning!

Have you ever had a gallstone? Did it cause you nausea? Do you feel like you are failing your children because you are ill?

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.

    I have never had a gallstone, but several of my family members have. They had some pretty rough times until they figured out what it was. I am glad that you got it figured out and that you are on the mend.

    Thanks, Brittany. I can’t believe a little gallstone would be causing me all this grief but I am going to the GI doctor on Friday to make sure it isn’t anything else!
