Very non-specific: The symptoms you describe are very non-specific. The nausea and loss of equilibrium can follow viral upper respiratory infection, food poisoning, middle ear or inner ear infection, etc. Dramamine, (dimenhydrinate) otc (meclizine) may help but it acts on the brain. So do not take it if you are driving. If the symptoms last for more than a week, see an ENT doctor or a neurologist.
