Constant Nausea

Constant Nausea

 

Are you always feeling like you need to throw up, vomit, puke or just have that queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach? Does it feel like a lot of what you’ve eaten is just swishing around in there with everything you’ve drank? That would be constant nausea. Or is it simply a constant sensation of discomfort in your stomach? Well whatever your particular feelings, whether it is fleeting, or long lasting, there is a cause. Some of the most common causes are motion sickness, migraine headaches, pregnancy, odors, visual stimulation, medication taken without food, types of vitamins (taken wrongly) fear, mucus, food poisoning, there’s truly a whole host of other causes big and small. On a larger scale and in cases where constant nausea comes on slowly are, gastrointestinal infections, an inflamed gall bladder will cause nausea, metabolic imbalances and inflammation of the pancreas. Needless to say that constant nausea is definitely something that you should see a doctor about. The urge to vomit may occur whether or not there is food or water in the stomach. When you’re actually throwing up it may feel like your esophagus is trying to come out of your body. It literally feels like all of your organs are squeezing together to force what is not supposed to be there, out. It’s really a process that is helpful to the body. It operates like a fail-safe, something unknowingly bad goes in, then the body turns on an automatic switch to get it out. It doesn’t feel good while it’s happening, but once it over, you instantly feel better. This is the case with fleeting nausea caused by food poisoning.

Constant Nausea

 

 

Constant nausea does not always lead to vomiting.  Most of the time it can be cured with a simple change in your diet, medication or by adding a particular vitamin, mineral / electrolytes to your daily intake. Kids with constant nausea most likely have a simple stomach bug which is highly contagious and should also be seen by a doctor. The vomiting may not stop without a dose of anti-nausea medication. If you take your child to the hospital, the dose may be given right there in the emergency room. The vomiting will stop and you’d probably be instructed to serve a bland diet and plenty of fluids in case of dehydration for the next few hours to couple of days. In more persistent cases, you may be instructed to administer a suppository. In cases of adult nausea and vomiting, dehydration is a factor there also and plenty of fluids should be taken after diagnosis. Sometimes water with a stomach bug causes more vomiting.

I would like to mention another possible cause of constant nausea, and it's something that I personally experienced. I had an ERCP procedure performed to correct a sphincter of oddi dysfunction. Once done, a lot of my nausea issues cleared up. I, too, believe there can be many causes of nausea.
