Are Colitis and nausea related in any way?

When I have a bad flair up of my lyphocytic colitis, I experience waves of nausea. My Gastro says they are not related (do you realize how far away they are from from each other? he says, referring to the stomach vs. the colon). I notice a definate corelation. Many online articals, i.e. Mayo clinic, etc., say that a colitis attack can bring on "nausea, low-grade fever, flu-like symtoms and related weight loss." Mine Dr. continues to treat me for gastritis, performed an endoscopy (found nothing except some inflammation) and now has me on a time released antacid. Why do the doctors fight a relation between the two conditions.

Is the gastroenterologist, who is treating you for gastritis, the same physician who made the diagnosis of lymphocytic colitis?

Collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis are inflammatory conditions of the colon that cause persistent watery diarrhea. Some researchers believe that collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis are different phases of the same condition rather than separate conditions.

The staff of the Mayo Clinic include nausea along with chronic, watery diarrhea, abdominal pain or cramps, weight loss and fecal incontinence as signs and symptoms of collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis.

Diagnosis is made by performing a colonscopy, collecting a sample of colon tissue and laboratory analysis of the tissue to look for signs of disease.

Are you taking any measures to keep lymphocytic colitis under control?
