Question: nausea

 clairebear9898 - Sat Jul 01, 2006 6:45 pm

I'm an 18 year old female and for the past couple of days, I have had nausea after eating lunch and dinner....breakfast is fine. I can only eat a little bit and then I feel like I'm going to vomit, but I never do. The only thing different I have been eating is Viactive calcium supplements with Vitamin D and K (in the form of chocolate). Could this just be a minor case of food poisoning or something more serious??

User avatar Hello,

Acute symptoms of nausea and vomiting without abdominal pain are typically caused by food poisoning, infectious gastroenteritis, cholecystitis, pancreatitis, or drugs. Inquiry should be made into recent changes in medications, diet, other intestinal symptoms, or similar illnesses in family members.

If symptoms continue you will need to be examined.

Best regards.
