User avatar Killereyez,
Nausea can be a very puzzling complaint. There are quite a lot of causes and these can only be excluded with the help of physical examination and a few blood tests.

Please review our nausea page for a list of possible nausea causes: vomiting/nausea.htm" class="postlink">Nausea
