I have been on Prilosec for a couple of years, 40mg twice a day (which is a high dose, insurance only  covers half, but I need 40  or I get sick).  If I don't take it, I puke.  My gastro and I think maybe a have a sliding hiatal hernia, which you don't really treat unless it's really bad and you can't breathe...so now I'm wondering if the kidney disease has anything to do with my gi problems, or if I just have more to look forward to?  I am also still just pre-d.. I wonder how it would affect that?  And I believe that Chinese medicine stuff--I was getting patchy eyebrows, and looked it up, and they say that's a problem with your pancreas or something, and sure enough, I had gallbladder and pancreas problems.

just kidding, that's the last thing nauseous people with kidney disease need.  I just never get to use that emoticon!

I always feel nauseated in the mornings, it's like morning sickness when you're pregnant !!  It wears off tho - I am pre-dialysis. My neph always asks me if I have started vomiting yet!!

I felt this way for years and it was acid reflux.  Empty stomach makes it worse. In middle school, I  would dry heave in the morning.  Didn't go to gastro until I started choking on food at 28 years old.  I don't know if kidney disease causes acid reflux/GERD or what, but you CAN have more than one thing wrong with you.  Doctors forget that.  But then, I'm pre-d, maybe it is just the "progression of the disease" and I'm a  little behind/not on Dialysis yet.

I too am glad to hear I'm not the only one with this problem.....I swear my body thinks I'm preggers and insists on having morning sickness everyday for about 3 hours, after that I can eat everything in sight (only dialysis friendly, I swear) but mornings are horrid.  I use Medicinal Marijuana when I'm not working and that helps a lot but of course I can't drive or go to work when I'm "medicated".  One would think that not eating in the AM would lead to weight loss...hahahaha...not happening...I eat enough in the PM for me, you and the guy next door.   :rofl;

if medical mari is available to you, the transplant clinics usually allow it, i think... i know of a few people who living in areas where its legal to have it, and also on tx lists...
around here, illinois, its not yet legal, so you cant smoke it and be on a list. unfortunately!

Just saw this thread. Out of those who have had problems with vomiting, are many of you on calcium beta blockers, such as Amlodipine? I am having the same issue. Have appt. With nephrologist on Monday, while researching this drug that all the many doctors I see said have no side effects related to indigestion or nausea, however after looking up info on calcium beta blockers was informed that the upper esophageal sphincter may be relaxed by this drug causing heartburn and vomiting. I don't understand how I can find solutions in minutes over the Internet while spending months and hundreds of dollars on doctors that apparently have no clue about the meds they are prescribing.

Well, I am really glad this thread was started. I have had a couple of episodes of vomiting, even tho I am not on D yet. Mentioned it to my neph and he says there must be something else wrong, as vomiting is not part of the kidney disease.

What? Vomiting is absolutely part of kidney disease.  Especially in Stage 4 and 5.  It's literally #1 or #2 on all the charts that describe possible symptoms.  Is your nephrologist just some guy who wandered in in a lab coat and Grouch glasses?

When I was in Stage 4-5 and before dialysis, I was vomiting ALL THE TIME.  I'd be late to work because I'd be out dry-heaving in the lilac bushes when I took my dog out in the mornings.

Now I'm on dialysis, it's just every now and then.  It seems to happen most often when I've overdone it on the salt.

Ask you dietician first, Juniah, but I have read that diluting some apple cider vinegar in water will help with the acid reflux.  Don't ask me why it works, because it is acidic, but I have some friends that treat acid reflux with it and it does work.

My husband gets queasy in the car a lot, at home sometimes. Peppermint candy really seem to help him. We've gotten where I keep them in my pocket, his pocket, my purse, the pocket in the door of the car, his dialysis bag....etc.  :2thumbsup;

Although vinegar and lemon juice are acidic in the bottle (or lemon), they are both metabolized as alkaline.  I know it's counterintuitive, but true.

 This thread brings up so many things.

Wife has had a long history of acid reflux.  Dr has had her on those purple pills seems like forever.  Ins Co's lobbied FDA and finaly caved in making many of those purple pills OTC so the Ins Co wouldn't have to pay out near as much as they used to.

Wife's acid reflux would boil up and spill over into her airway.  This caused scarring and a 'donut' of scar material to grow and restrict her airway.  Quack Dr we used to have diagnosed her with ashma, gave her a bunch of pills and an inhaler that never did a thing.  She lived with this for far too many years until I got mad and changed Dr's.  Loved the new Dr and after nagging her for months, she also switched.  Her very first visit to the new Dr, he was listening to her chest, heard sounds, and started raising the stethascope listening higher and higher, until her was listening to her neck immediately below her voicebox.  Sent her to a throat specialist.  Ended up having surgery removing the 'donut' and in recovery found she could breath perfectly again.  Morale of this story, if you have acid reflux go see an ENT and check out your throat.

Years ago Dr's found that 'valve' in the stomach leaked in a lot of people, causing this acid reflux.  It was reparable in many cases.  With the advent of the purple pills Dr's have seldom resorted to surgery.

Licorice jelly beans work well for me to cure a 'sour' or upset stomach.

I've been on dialysis for 4 years now and fortunately for me, have never had an upset stomach.

I must be Blessed.  I have no other explanation.

Be careful with those purple pills and all the GERD pills.  They increase the risk of kidney failure.
