Nausea before and after eating, terrible acid, nighttime vomiting. Tums useless, famotidine helps a little. It's been weeks. Help?

Check gallbladder

You should see your doctor. I would most likely start with an ultrasound of the gallbladder.

Sudden nausea out of nowhere throughout the day, only waiting it out helps. Tums don't help. Waking up in the night sometimes, what are the causes?

Rule out pregnancy

Chronic_nausea
There are many, many causes of nausea. In women with nausea, the first and easiest thing to check is whether you are pregnant. Vitamins and birth control pills can cause nausea. If it is persisting more than a few days, see your doctor for a check up.

Why do I get nausea every night? Me and my body are getting tired of having to take Pepto Bismol or Tums to deal with it, just to sleep. :(

Gastritis or GERD

Sleep
I suspect you may have either gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) or GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease or acid reflux). Diet (caffeine, chocolate, alcohol), tobacco, medications (ibuprofen for example), and infections (H. Pylori) can all be possible causes for the inflammation. I would suggest you see your primary care doctor to discuss symptoms and possible treatment options.

Severe stomach pain, tums helped, what is it?

Lots of things...

Open-uri20131115-9922-7ol0vc
Our brain can't tell the difference in pain signals from heart, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, liver, pancreas, bile ducts, liver, or gallbladder. So illnesses of ANY of those organs causes upper abdominal pain; gallbladder is most common. Since TUMS help, it MAY be excess acid & and ulcer (but not for sure). See Dr. & get proper diagnosis; good luck!
