About Nausea

Back to the top

Nausea is a feeling of queasiness and discomfort in your stomach often with the urge to vomit. Nausea is not a disease itself, but an indication that something is wrong. It is a symptom of a wide range of conditions or may be the result of an unhealthy action.

Some potential causes of nausea include:

  • Gastroenteritis (stomach flu)
  • Food poisoning
  • Medication
  • Overeating or eating too much greasy, spicy, or sugary food
  • Excessive amounts of alcohol
  • Concussion
  • Dehydration
  • Heart attack
  • Reaction to strong smells
  • Appendicitis
  • Migraine
  • Early stages of pregnancy (morning sickness)
  • Motion sickness
  • Ulcer

Nausea itself is usually harmless, however, it can be a symptom of a more serious issue. If your nausea is accompanied by a severe headache, severe stomach pain, difficulty breathing, a stiff neck, or confusion you should seek prompt medical attention. You should get medical help if you suspect you’ve ingested a poisonous substance or are severely dehydrated.
