I understand, as do many!
I have had chronic nausea problems for years, so I know that one too. I have found the best thing for that, for me, is using medical cannabis, but it doesn't work for everyone and is not legal where you are....

I love to work outside on my land, but have learned the hard way how to listen to my body and, no matter what, stop when it gives me the slightest cue that it is reaching the point of having had enough. Sometimes that is after 10 minutes! But usually I can go longer.

The really hard thing for me was first, really learning to listen and pay attention to my body because all my life I always just worked through anything. And second, being willing to stop even if I had only just gotten started, when I am just not the kind of person who stops something instead of finishing it.

But when I did learn those things (and it took a while, believe me) it was very beneficial to me. Now, I just go out and start, and all the time I am checking in with my body. I stop the moment there's a twinge. I may still pay for it a bit later, but it isn't ever as bad as it used to be. It's excruciatingly hard to learn to be OK with this, but over time, you do learn, and then it gets easier.

In the meantime, feel free to vent and moan here!

I agree with sunkacola I have found medical edibles work the best for me. They really help me sleep also so I try to only use for bed or if in pain or really soar. IT also should help with nausea. I get way more done when I use edibles. In my states it's legal with a license so I make them. Hope you feel better.

Hi Fibro mum,
I know that some people experience nausea as an ongoing symptom of their fibro, but are you on any medications that might be worth reviewing? After a couple of months on Duloxetine (Cymbalta) I developed horrible nausea that stayed with me 24 hours a day for months. Once I weaned myself of that medication, the nausea mostly subsided. May not apply to you, but could be worth considering. Good luck 🌻

Fibro Mum............I am assuming you have already tried a carefully planned elimination diet to find out if you are intolerant to something you eat? If not, do that.
My chronic nausea problem was cut down to about 20% of what it used to be when I stopped eating gluten.

This could be a reason as I was on at least 4 sedatives for a few months until today when the doctors only just realised

That’s good I’m glad you got good help😇I guess for me it’s the fatigue when it wipes you out and you feel like the day after you’ve had a big night of drinking (even though you haven’t) and the limitations I can’t cook cos of mine oh and the weight gain 😠
