Patient discussion about cry for help

Q. Is there anyone out there that could help? I just wanna cry……. Hi Everyone...Thanks to Imedix . I am only 6 weeks pregnant and every day night is troublesome to me with horrible symptoms of shakiness, high heartbeat, sour stomach, tiredness, and a very extreme nausea. I can't sleep and my stomach feels punched by someone. Anyone else has experienced this? I have stopped the meds as that increases my irritation. I hate to eat at all! I can barely function....or talk without gagging. Is there anyone out there that could help? I just wanna cry…….

A. Hey...I totally understand how you feel...I am on Zofran which has worked wonders for me except I had some constipation, not a bad compromise for this sickness. I'm able to function and eat and the food stays down. I'm 19 weeks now but in the beginning of my pregnancy I had a continuous abundance of saliva in my mouth and also an awful taste. Eating mint gum helped me tremendously. I no longer have the abundance of saliva but I still get that awful sour taste. I am having gingerale and also Gatorade, it helps me.
