    That’s interesting, I’m sorry it happens to you too. Same here with the stomach issues? I’ve had a horrible time with the meds they “try”, when we go back to the opioids they work and my stomach doesn’t get sick. Glad some doc’s are calming down about it. Is medical marijuana available where you are? On the west coast in the US I had some and it worked great without the nausea that some pills gives me. Even the anti-nausea pills had some kind of dopamine blocker in it and that made it to where I couldn’t take them either?

    I've not heard of them. I use hot packs made of hard corn. Works on the same principle.
    It's natural, the heat lasts all night, and they last for years without burning up. Very seldom need to be
    replaced. I get them from Amazon.

    Yes, I'm that way with dental work. Shot after shot to get anything done.
    I have been thinking about your posts here all day and I am going to look up that name right now.

    I just read about it and the symptoms doesn't fit.
    The only ones that could would be fatigue and heart racing upon standing.
    But, that also goes with congestive heart failure which was recently found.
    My IBS is increased motility, not constipation.
    Good to know about though. Thanks.

    So sorry that happened to you, I honestly get it. The fever comes and goes all the time but it’s low in the first place so what is “normal” is a bit high but not that bad like you said.

    For nausea they gave me an RX called Phenergan (promethazine HCI), it was wonderful UNTIL the part where it blocks dopamine kicked in then I was mean as a hornet. My husband and a friend noticed a big change in my personality while taking this nausea medicine. They didn’t tell me that the nausea pills blocked any neurotransmitters? This is also a drug commonly used for an antihistamine?! I’m fine now, did try it a second time and yup, same thing happened! Now...ginger ale, that is pretty much all I can use for nausea.

    People need to know what all is in their medicine!

    I’ll never take that stuff again. Sorry your having the same problem with meds.

    I had anaphalaxis reaction to Phenergan. Ended up in hospital and it set off a long episode of severe
    panic attacks.

    Anyone who is sensitive to it should be aware it is a Gen1 antihistimine which includes antiemetics,
    compazine, promethazine, and various psychotics.
    My doctor told me to put all phenothiazines when asked about drug allergies.
    Anaphalxis can be deadly. Ask physician what to put as drug allergies if you,ve been sensitive to
    it or related drugs of that class.
