Helpful hints for living with the symptoms of mast cell disorders shared by patients living with these disorders – Nausea

I find that drinking tea helps my nausea.

When nausea gets to the pre-vomiting stage, sucking on ice-chips helps me to feel better and get control.

Zofran (ondansetron) taken twice a day has helped my nausea a lot.

My nausea has improved since I switched to pants with elastic waists, so they can expand and do not put pressure on my stomach.

I keep my emergency meds and a blanket in a tote by the toilet (so they are available during prolonged bouts of diarrhea and vomiting).

Watch the temperature of things that you eat and drink. Hot foods and beverages can precipitate nausea and vomiting in me, and I can stop it if I am able to get ice chips down. Other masto patients report the same thing happens to them with cold beverages and foods.
