Question: Reoccurring Nausia - Please Help

 Brian28 - Wed Oct 26, 2005 3:31 am

Please help!!

During the last three months I been getting bouts of extreme nausa that usually last for a minimum of 12 hours. They usually start in the moirning or evening and involve me renching but not actually being sick.

This has happened three times now almost one moth between each episode. The Nausia is very intense and anti sickness tablets do not seem to have much effect, my stomache also feels very bloated at the time.

Any advice you may have would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

User avatar Hi Brian28,
Are the episodes of extreme nausea brought on by any specific foods that you have noticed? Do you have any other symptoms, pain, etc.?

Hi Rntd

Thanks for your response. I havent really noticed any certain types of food the last things I can remember eating before two of the episodes was sausage, egg & chips & the other time was a jacket potato with tuna.

I try to generally eat healthy and execrise a few times a week. I do eat a few few dairy products.

Not really any pain apart from the next day when the nausea has gone my stomache feels a bit tender but assumed this was down to the renching

Thanks again

User avatar Hi Brian28,
If symptoms of nausea, etc. occurs after eating foods particularly high in fat content "greasy foods" then I would be inclinded to first consider gallbladder dysfunction. I would suggest an evaluation by your physician to identify if this is the causative factor.
