What is nausea and vomiting?

Nausea and vomiting are usually symptoms of an underlying condition. Nausea is an uneasy feeling in the abdomen which is sometimes followed by your body forcibly emptying its stomach contents (vomiting).

What are the causes of nausea and vomiting?

Nausea and vomiting can be triggered by some of the following conditions or triggers:

  • Alcohol
  • Brain injuries
  • Emotional distress
  • Extreme pain
  • Food poisoning
  • Gastroparesis (a condition affecting the natural movement of stomach muscles)
  • Heart attack
  • Infections (stomach flu)
  • Motion sickness
  • Overeating
  • Pregnancy
  • Some medicines
  • Strong odours
  • Ulcers

There are many more conditions that can induce nausea and vomiting. It is best to speak with a doctor to determine the cause of your nausea and vomiting.

How can I treat nausea and vomiting?

Nausea can typically be treated at home by drinking clear liquids and avoiding solid foods. For nausea that doesn’t resolve with this, there are several prescription medications available that are highly effective. Once the nausea starts to pass, start introducing bland foods slowly to encourage recovery. Nausea and vomiting that doesn’t resolve with oral prescription treatment requires a thorough in person medical examination and testing.

For pregnant women, morning sickness can often be reduced by eating crackers when waking or eating a high protein snack before bed (lean meat or cheese)
