Nausea Q & A

What is nausea?

Nausea is the medical term used to describe a sensation of stomach discomfort. It’s often described as an overwhelming or nagging sense of unease. Quite often, nausea is accompanied by the urge to vomit, although vomiting may not occur. 

Nausea isn’t a disease, but a symptom of an underlying condition. More than 700 potential causes of nausea have been identified, a fact that can in and of itself make you feel nauseated. Fortunately, a skilled physician can help get to the bottom of your symptoms and work toward relief. 


What are some causes of nausea?

Many things can lead to nausea. If you experience a short bout of nausea, there’s usually no cause for concern. However, if your symptoms persist or are severe in nature, you should come in for a thorough diagnostic workup. 

Some of the causes of nausea include:

  • Pregnancy (morning sickness)
  • Gastrointestinal reflux (GERD)
  • Constipation
  • Motion sickness
  • Head trauma
  • Stroke
  • Brain tumors
  • Hepatitis
  • Vertigo
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Certain medications

Because there are so many potential causes of nausea, some of which are serious, it’s important to find answers as quickly as possible. 


What can be done to treat nausea?

Your practitioner will quickly assess your condition and determine the best course of action. There are medications that can swiftly relieve nausea.

Options include both oral and injectable medications. If you are currently taking any medications or supplements, be sure to share that information with your provider to avoid a negative reaction with any new drugs. 

Your doctor works to determine the source of your nausea. Based on your health history, additional symptoms, and the results of your exam, additional screening may be needed. Rest assured, you’re in the best of hands as you navigate this process. 

During your visit, your practitioner can also discuss self-care efforts that can improve your nausea. This is important for men and women who suffer frequent bouts of nausea that interfere with normal daily routines. 

When you’re ready to find answers, schedule a visit at Chicago Immediate Care online or over the phone. For sudden and severe bouts of nausea, simply come by for an urgent care visit at any of the three locations.
