What to do if I have nausea, what is the cause?

Nausea: Without any detail, it is impossible to pinpoint the cause. If it is new onset nausea, just cut back your diet to liquids for a few days. You could consider an anti-acid medication for a few days to see if it helps. If the nausea lasts longer than a week or so, you need to be seen to determine the source. Good luck.
