I'm IBS with alternating C and D. I've noticed that when my stomach is empty, I get nauseous. As soon as I get some food in my stomach, I feel better. I try to carry snack foods with me at all times to fight this, but there have been a few situations where I'm in a position where I can't get food and have to wait until I can get somewhere. The nausea is awful, and I often throw up just stomach acid. Is it possible for the lining of my stomach to be irritated from being empty? I suppose the best solution would be to keep my stomach full all the time, but this isn't very practical, as I would be eating 7 or 8 meals a day. I've tried Zofran and Reglan, but they do nothing on the empty stomach. I'm dreading being in a situation again where I might find myself without availability to food for a bit. Does anyone else experience this? Are there any meds to take to combat it, or is the best solution just to constantly carry around food?
