You know that queasy feeling, the one that warns you that you’re definitely going to be sick? Soon, you’re rushing to the closest restroom, and your nausea turns to vomiting. Throwing up the contents of your stomach is something everyone’s likely experienced, and there are lots of different causes for this unpleasant symptom. Food poisoning can make you vomit, as can motion sickness, pain, viral gastroenteritis (aka stomach flu), pregnancy, medications, excessive alcohol, and even extreme shock or grief. In some cases, chronic vomiting can be a sign of an underlying illness, including neurological or GI conditions. People with celiac disease, for instance, experience vomiting along with other chronic GI woes. It’s also common with migraines, food intolerances, and other issues that may be mechanical or anatomic. Vomiting can cause dehydration, so hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! After a bout, make sure you replenish with lots of water, as soon as you can stand it. If you’re riding waves of nausea, try to settle your stomach with peppermint, chamomile, or ginger. The antihistamine meclizine, sold under the brand names Bonine and Dramamine, can be a godsend to those who are susceptible to motion sickness. If vomiting is something you experience frequently, make sure you talk to your practitioner. In addition to these holistic and over-the-counter remedies, there are also prescription meds that can help. Nausea and vomiting definitely aren’t comfortable, so we’re all for seeking a solution!

during very high stress times i get so sick to my stomach to the point that it's ruined my eating schedule for a few months and i've been getting so nauseous that sometimes i stumble and need to hold onto something. been so sick w this for long enough that the fear of throwing up is also huge and feeds into more anxiety. who has tips for managing this? i have a little bit of nausea rx's right now but need help w other coping methods until i get back into therapy because it's almost constant 😭😔
Does anyone else have an issue with nausea waking you up in the middle of the night? It doesn’t always lead to vomiting, but occasionally does. I have no idea what the cause is.
trigger warning vomit !! did something stupid with my A/C units with lots of black mold...Saturday afternoon/ night I attempted to clean two of them myself, without much ventilation. I was just so determined to get rid of it; but I think it backfired. I lost all of my appetite, felt nauseous all day then tried to eat something and vomited just now.
Went to the ER... a different one than my usual, yesterday, with extreme stomach pain and vomiting. Goes what? I'm impacted. AGAIN. So this ER doc, being smarter than my GI team, put me on multiple meds to attack the impaction multiple ways instead of just one way that isn't working, over and over. Also lots of Zofran. The only problem is I can't get to the pharmacy to get them until at least tomorrow. So I'm in pain and vomiting again today. This is absurd at this point.
Recently, I have been getting extremely nauseas. Like to the point where I throw up. I have a really hard time with puke. I have a phobia of being sick and yet it keeps happening. It’a hormone related. Any tips to manage nausea??? I’m kind of afraid to eat
About to go in for an endoscopy I’ve had scheduled for a while now. It might sound odd but I’m hoping they find something that confirms my suspicions on having gastroparesis so that we can begin treating my never ending nausea, vomiting and abdominal bloating. I’ve had these symptoms now for several years and need answers. Wish me luck!
