What is good to drink or eat to stop vomiting basically feeling sick to the stomach?

What is good to drink or eat to stop vomiting basically feeling sick to the stomach?

Rehydration: In the strictest sense, you want to put the stomach to rest. However, simple fluids are best to keep from dehydrating. Children have less tolerance and reserves for fluid and electrolyte loss, so i recommend pedialyte for kids. Adults can tolerate vomiting better, so i recommend water, or mild, sweetened tea. I also use ginger ale or flat coke to control nausea. Foods should be avoided. ...Read more

Can be: Check a pregnancy test even though you are on the pill and you may want to change the timing of your pill to bedtime to avoid some of these symptoms.

Feeling sick vomiting nausea. 24 days after sex both blood and urine negative ..What's wrong with me? Am i pregnant?

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I am 9 weeks post tummytuck, since week 4, I have felt nausous, not vomitting just sick feeling in stomach. Could it be the swelling?

Yes: It's hard to tell what's causing the nausea. With no pain and no vomiting, it's a little far out to be having anesthesia nausea. Watch for fever and pain and see what happens before you take it up with your surgeon. You are the best judge of when it's gone too far. ...Read more

Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room. ...Read more

Going on camp in the morning and I'm feeling sick. I'm scared I'll vomit on the bus. Is this anxiety? How do i calm down and avoid vomiting?

Going on camp in the morning and I'm feeling sick. I'm scared I'll vomit on the bus. Is this anxiety? How do i calm down and avoid vomiting?

Yes, anxiety. Calm: Yes this is anticipatory anxiety. Are you often anxious in new situations? You can help yourself calm down by focusing on your breathing. Practice taking slow easy deep breaths, counting to 4 as you inhale, and exhaling slowly to same count. Sit near the front of the bus if you can, not in the back, and by a window. If you have friends on the bus sit with them and chat. Good luck! ...Read more

I have pain in the back of my neck, vomiting, feeling ill, pins and needles feeling in upper arms. ?

Go to the ER: If these symptoms are recent in onset, especially if there is any fever, you need to go to the emergency room now. If there is no fever and the symptoms have been present for some time and are not progressing you can wait and be seen tomorrow. An immediate concern would be an infection that could be life threatening. The symptoms may still be part of a serious condition even if not infection. ...Read more

Got very dehydrated after a concert, started feeling sick and weak. 1h after, i vomited. I vomited two more times tomorrow.  Is this normal? No alc.

Start slow: You went to a concert and got dehydrated then vomited. In order to get better try taking small sips of fluid. If you are able to tolerate fluids then make sure your pee isn't too concentrated. Start slow. If you still vomit then you might need intravenous hydration. There is a us national shortage of intravenous fluid so make sure your ed has some. ...Read more

My mrs is 10 weeks pregnant and has been feeling sick all day everyday not just the morning, she is also vomiting. What can we do to help this ?

She needs a doctor: This could be a very serious condition called hyperemesis gravidarum (like Duchess Kathryn---Kate Middleton has had), or even something else entirely. Make sure she is drinking small amounts frequently and also eating something salty, but she may need more help than just this to avoid serious dehydration or illness. Try ginger for the nausea, but get that appointment now. ...Read more

I've been feeling sick like I want to vomit yesterday I vomited and now I feel like something flattering in my lower stomach could I be pregnant?

Hard to tell...: It can be hard to guess if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more
