Symptoms of Nausea
As previously stated, there may be many things that can cause an individual to become nauseated. Of course, the timing of which the nausea sets in can indicate signs of further complications. Many times, if the nausea appears directly after a meal, we may assume it is food poisoning, or if it occurs in the morning in women, it could be an early sign of pregnancy.
Some conditions nausea is associated with include:
- Brain tumor
- Gastro paresis
- Food poisoning
- Gallbladder disease
- Intense Pain
- Heart attack
- Motion sickness
If your nausea lasts for more than a couple of days and there is no possibility that you are pregnant, it is advised to seek medical attention immediately because there could be a more severe matter at hand. Additionally, any documents can be used by an attorney if the nausea was caused by a negligent action of another individual.
As we can imagine, the feeling of nausea is something we hope will pass quickly, however in some cases it may linger. Thus, there are several treatment methods that may be used to eliminate or reduce nausea. In some instances, a doctor will prescribe additional medications to treat nausea.
Some common nausea treatment includes:
- Slowly drinking large amounts of water or clear fluid
- Resting in a seated position or lying propped up
- Hold P6 acupressure point on inside of wrist
- Use ginger or peppermint

Although there are many additional treatments proven to help reduce nausea, these are the most common treatments used today.
At times there may be nothing we can do to prevent nausea, especially in cases where the nausea is associated with specific ailments or if you are an individual who is more likely to get motion sickness. However, in other cases, there are some things we can do to prevent nausea from occurring at all.
