Any suggestions for treating chronic nausea and vomiting with fibromyalgia?

Find cause of N & V.: Fibromyalgia is a syndrome of generalized pain and weakness in numerous parts of body. It is called a syndrome because one can not find any objective evidence of a problem. One mistake the pt and doc make is that once a person is labelled as having "fibromyalgia", there is a trap other sx are part of the syndrome: n & v is not. Doc needs to look for true cause, then rx will become clear.

What is causing chronic nausea and headaches?

Probably migraine: Migraines are the most common cause of frequent headaches, and they are often associated with nausea. Otc pain meds can contribute to rebound/medication overuse headache, which causes the headaches to actually worsen in the long run. You should see a neurologist who can get you on a good preventative agent as well as a good acute agent (i.e. Triptan i.e. Imitrex) for the pain.

Chronic nausea (2months straight) zig ran helps some but still comes back I'm constantly feeling bad. Not sure what type of specialist to see.?

Chronic nausea: Many conditions can cause chronic nausea. I assume you take Zegerid for possible GERD. But other conditions can cause nausea as well, including metabolic diseases like diabetes, motility problems like gastroparesis, and functional GI disease like dyspepsia. A GI can help you discover the cause of your symptoms.
