Nausea: 2 areas to look at are the stomach and gallbladder. Fatty foods stimulate the gallbladder which can cause pain of nausea. Gastritis can cause nausea after eating also but is related more to gastric distention. Try a liquid antacid and see if this helps. You may need a sonogram of the abdomen.

Find symptom's cause: Nausea/vomiting may be GI-related (food poisoning, peptic disease, gastroparesis, due to biliary & pancreatic disease, gas/bloat syndrome, small bowel problems). Consider "central" causes: motion sickness, vertigo, migraine headache, brain problems (some very serious). Also, rule out infection (? urinary tract), medication side effects, pregnancy, even reaction to stress. Find & treat cause.
