Fnd another doctor asap! You should NOT be nauseated every day of your life. Please see another doctor to get some help.

While some do experience gastrointestinal upsets during the peri-menopausal years you should not be having to cope with it on a continuous basis.  Please ask your doctor to send you to a gastrologist or internist to determine just what the problem is.  I can not believe that your present doctor is not more concerned for you.

Have you tried ginger (ginger tea, ginger ale, ginger tablets) or peppermint to help soothe your tummy?
