New and need advice
      09/03/07 06:54 PM

Hello everyone~
I am a 35 yr old female who has recently been diagnosed with IBS. The thing is I am not that comfortable with the diagnosis. Here is a bit of background. I have dealth with nausea a good part of my life. I remember as a child complaining of stomach aches. My mother took me to the doctor who did ordered a upper GI x ray. Everything came back normal. I have had 2 more as an adult and again with normal results. I have had several doctors say I had a "nervous stomach". Just recently I have pretty much gotten to the end of my rope and sought out a GI doctor. He did a colonoscopy and endoscopy and the results were normal. So I was given the IBS diagnosis. The chief complaint is nausea. I have lots of nausea. I am so tired of feeling sick to my stomach. I feel if I "just" had the D or C (I do tend to be constipated) I would not be so miserable.

My gastro has prescribed Paxil CR. Has anyone taken this for IBS? Does it work? Also, does anyone esle suffer from nausea and not so much the lower abdominal stuff? Thanks!
