Has anyone ever looked into vagus nerve involvement with MS? (the vagus nerve runs from the head, down the body past the heart and stomach).
I have had weird stomach issues twice now in the last year; I have had reflux for years (pre MS), and have taken lansoprazole for it with no bother. But when I have these flare ups, I cannot eat anything without feeling nauseous, feel permanently bloated with a block of stone in my central chest beneath my sternum, extreme constipation, foul wind and a foul taste in my mouth. This has lasted for a couple of weeks, then just stopped. Like whatever was being irritated, stopped being irritated. It makes me wonder if it’s not a digestion problem but a nerve problem. I have made no changes to diet/exercise/medication - nothing to indicate a reason.
