Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

Pain = Nausea

Well…not ALL the time!  Just some times….yet when it hits….it really sucks!!!!!

As if dealing with chronic pain (Fibromyalgia, Polyarthralgia, Chronic Pain Disorder) is not enough……there are those days….like today….when my IBS is caused to flare….tying my stomach in knots….feeling so nauseous that all I could do was lie in bed….and hope it would pass soon!

The intensity subsided within 3-4 hours…however, that nauseous feeling is still present…..now accompanied by the Electric Shocks….not to mention the fact that I cannot get warm!  LOL

I know this will pass….these symptoms will morph into my more usual and customary “companions”……..

Just know that the nasty sick feeling in your stomach is NOT in your head…..it is a direct result of your system being overloaded with the pain signals that it is interpreting…..at times it just becomes so overwhelming that your entire system will give in……thus the title…..Pain = Nausea…..

    I get this too! I never made the connection with chronic pain, though. Thank you–your explanation makes a lot of sense!
