Pericarditis: A little fluid around the heart can be normal, but if it is seen it is likely abnormal. The most common cause of pericardial fluid is a viral infection, or other causes of inflammation which can be some disease like lupus, or medications. Injury to the heart can also cause fluid. The nausea may relate to the cause but also may not. Be seen if get sicker!
