Nausea Q & A

What is nausea?

Nausea refers to a feeling of uneasiness or discomfort in and around your stomach area. It’s often accompanied by a need or urge to vomit. Nausea is one of the most common medical symptoms people experience and it can be related to a host of underlying conditions.

What are the common causes of nausea?

There are a variety of potential causes of nausea, including but not limited to:

  • Stomach flu
  • Morning sickness associated with pregnancy
  • Stress
  • Gastrointestinal conditions
  • Allergies
  • Viruses
  • Migraines
  • Side effect from certain medications

Determining the root cause of your nausea is a critical component of developing a treatment plan to combat this troublesome medical symptom.

When should I see a medical professional about nausea?

In many cases, nausea subsides on its own with home care and rest. However, if nausea is chronic, tied to pregnancy, or some other underlying condition you’re already aware of, it may be best to see the medical professionals at Grand Lake Healthcare to come up with a more permanent, effective solution.

If you’re on own ideas aren’t working, why not get professional help? The team at Grand Lake Healthcare routinely helps patients turn the tide when dealing with nausea and get back to living full, happy, and healthy lives.

How is nausea treated?

At Grand Lake Healthcare, the team of providers first performs a detailed physical exam, reviews your medical history, and discusses the specific nature of your nausea with you. This may include triggering factors that bring on nausea, or the estimated duration and severity of your bouts with nausea.

Then, they work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan to help you get rid of your nausea. Individualized care may include prescribing medication, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or corticosteroids, making lifestyle modifications, or recommending changes to your diet. For example, in many cases, drinking clear or ice-cold drinks and eating light, bland foods, such as saltine crackers or plain bread, is an effective way to fight off nausea when it occurs.
