What Causes Nausea?

April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 222

You may know nausea from experience especially those times when you ride a bus or when you are feeling a bit heady. It is actually that feeling of queasiness that is almost always associated with motion sickness and eventual vomiting. When you are feeling nauseous, there is a sensation of discomfort in your stomach that also makes you want to vomit. Although it does not regularly precede vomiting, it almost always comes with headache.

So what are the main causes of nausea?

Mainly, nausea is associated with dizziness and fainting. But there is a variety of other internal and external factors that can cause nausea. A nauseous feeling is also associated with most cases involving head trauma, concussion, exposure to too much heat and allergic attacks.

Cancer patients who undergo chemotherapies and radiation treatments also experience nausea as a side-effect of the medications. Nausea can also be experienced by people who have both type I and type II diabetes. Pregnant women are susceptible to bouts of nausea especially in their first trimester, where their bodies are still adjusting to the changes that carrying a child brings. Patients who also have cases of vertigo and other eyesight problems experience nausea.

Your stomach problems and bowel issues can also cause you nauseous bouts. Gastritis and gastroesophageal reflux disease are the most common stomach cases that cause nausea because of the vomiting that these conditions come along with. Food poisoning and gallstones are causes just the same.

Although nausea is not always considered as a sickness in itself, it is still one of the many strongest indications that you may have another more serious disease. Kidney and liver diseases as well as pancreatitis can cause nausea. The same is true with appendicitis and intestinal blockage, which both induces severe pains in your stomach area. Finally and probably the worst cause of nausea is brain hemorrhage, a condition in which there is bleeding inside your brain that has to be treated with great urgency.

If nausea is accompanied with vomiting, it is important to remember that you have to consume fluids to compensate for the dehydrating effect of the condition. Nausea can be treated with medications at least for the time that they occur. But it is also suggested that you seek a doctor, especially if the bouts of nausea already occurs more frequently than you can remember, to get advice on a more permanent course of treatment.
