From 2 days having 2 eggs in a day. Last night have fast food after which I feel nausea. And finally vomited 1 hour ago. Feeling better but not much?

Eat healthy foods: Fast food can be a problem. Just by the name "fast food' it means you are not sitting down to relax while you are eating. The fries are greasy and so are some of the other things such as breaded fish or chicken. It is a push meal and does not sit well with some people. Relax when you eat and eat good foods. No fad diets. I thinks you are going to feel better. If not see your family doctor ...Read more

If you have significant abdominal pain of what you are throwing up is bright yellow or green, then you need the er tonight.

I experience nausea when I eat certain foods & smell certain smells. I had unprotected sex for 21 days now. Do you think im pregnant?

Can't say: Those symptoms are typical of pregnancy, but are very non-specific and can't be relied upon to diagnose a pregnancy. A home pregnant test should be used to check - or you could see your doctor for a blood test. ...Read more

6 days back, my friend ate something from a food joint and ended up vomiting the entire night. She has been feeling nausea since that day. Reason??

Contaminated food: Some kind of contamination. This duration of nausea demands follow up examination and likely testing by her MD -- now, not in a few days. Perhaps she has ingested a parasite. See the MD and get treated and well again. Good Luck. ...Read more

Stay hydrated: Whatever the cause, it is important that you try to stay hydrated. If you are unable to take any fluids all day due to continued vomiting, I recommend you go to an urgent care for rehydration and potential workup.

As far as causes, it could be a simple virus, it could be food poisoning, or it could be pregnancy. A detailed history taken by a physician and perhaps a test can help sort this out. ...Read more

My mom has persistent epigastric pain started 3 days ago after eating a spicy food. The pain is getting worse with eating. She has chills & nausea?

Seek urgent care: The chills and nausea have me concerned that she could have a perforated ulcer or an incarcerated hiatal hernia. This may need an operation to fix, so she should be seen immediately in person by a healthcare provider. In the absence of chills and the 3 day duration, she could have worsening gastritis or reflux. ...Read more

Nausea for past 6 days, esp. After food. Loss of appetite. Big vomit in middle of the night after a large meal. Not allergies. When should I see doctor?

Nausea for past 6 days, esp. After food. Loss of appetite. Big vomit in middle of the night after a large meal. Not allergies. When should I see doctor?

Call today for appt.: Vomiting reflex is controlled by 2 units in brain medulla--one receives nerve impulses from GI tract, the other is a chemical receptor. Both have nerve connections to not only GI tract (pharynx, mesenteric vessels, bile ducts) but also from brain corticobulbar areas that mediate smells, sights, ; taste. Maybe you have gastritis, but maybe your symptoms have little to do with GI tract. Get checked. ...Read more

3 days till period have watery lotion like the CM ovulated sep 21 morning sickness yesterday nausea today. Sore boobs food cravings could I b pregnant?

Maybe so: The short answer is yes. I would say you should wait until you miss your period and then take a pregnancy test. Taking one now may show up positive but I would wait a few days to make sure. Symptoms definitely sound suspicious for pregnancy. ...Read more

I am anaemic and I take iron meds and folic acid I have been feeling a little light headed for a good two days and the smell of food (eggs especially) has me feeling nausea and I feeling tired and sleepy most of the time?

I am anaemic and I take iron meds and folic acid I have been feeling a little light headed for a good two days and the smell of food (eggs especially) has me feeling nausea and I feeling tired and sleepy most of the time?

I think you need: To be rechecked regarding your anemia...and possibly have a pregnancy test! Feeling tired and sleepy is a frequently reported sign of pregnancy and the nausea, with or without rotten eggs, can be, too. Make a visit to your doctor--you need to see what your current blood count is and have pregnancy ruled out. .. or ruled in!! Good wishes:) ...Read more
