Nausea: Headaches are processes that pass over several areas of the brain. If they pass the nausea centers you will become nauseated. Best prevention is sleep, eat, excercize, hydrate, avoid caffeine and do relaxation breathing. Treat any headaches at the onset with NSAIDs. If the frequency is more than 2/week speak with your primary care about preventative medications. Hope this helps.
