Is My Nausea Caused by IBS?

By    |   Monday, 09 December 2013 09:48 AM

Why do I Feel Sick to My Stomach After Eating?

Question: I feel nauseated after eating — no matter what I eat. I have had a colonoscopy, an endoscopy, an MRI, and an ultrasound, and my doctor said I have irritable bowel syndrome. But things are getting worse Any suggestions?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
Irritable bowel is often diagnosed in cases where true causes have not yet been identified. If your symptoms are not improving while taking appropriate IBS medications, then the diagnosis may be suspect.
Nausea after eating can occur not only with gastrointestinal problems, but also with other disorders such as ulcer disease, pancreatitis, cancer, heart disease, endocrine disorders, and food intolerance.
It's time to re-review your symptoms with your primary care physician and to see if you should see a specialist. Be sure to apprise any your GI specialist you visit of your concerns, and ask for a referral for further evaluation if your symptoms remain despite their treatment recommendations.
You can also ask your primary care physician to refer you for further evaluation at a referral center such as the Mayo Clinic or a university teaching hospital close to where you live.
