Nausea and

Vomiting

cusiconage

Nausea is the feeling of queasiness in the stomach, while vomiting is the “throwing up” of the contents of the stomach through the mouth. Nausea and vomiting sometimes occur at the same time. In most cases, nausea occurs before vomiting happens. Nausea, however, does not always result in vomiting.

Keep in mind that nausea and vomiting are not diseases themselves, but are symptoms of other conditions, such as:

  • Pregnancy
  • Food poisoning
  • Overeating
  • Motion sickness
  • Emotional stress
  • Reaction to certain smells 
  • Stomach flu
  • Ulcers
  • Bulimia and other similar forms of psychological illnesses
  • Medication-induced vomiting
  • Ingestion of excessive amounts of alcohol
  • Intense pain
  • Bowel obstruction 
  • Appendicitis
  • Concussion or brain injury
  • Brain tumor
  • Heart Attack
  • Certain forms of cancer
  • Gastroparesis
  • Gallbladder disease

Nausea and vomiting can occur in both young and adults, and should be addressed by a medical provider immediately if:

  • the nausea has lasted for more than a few days
  • there is a known injury or infection that may be causing the vomiting
  • If vomiting lasts more than a few hours, for infants and children under six years
  • If vomiting lasts a day, especially if there is diarrhea or high fever
  • If clear liquids can not be kept down 
  • If there is blood in the vomit
  • If there is severe abdominal pain or diarrhea
  • If there is rapid breathing or pulse
  • If the person is also experiencing severe headache or stiff neck
  • If the person is lethargic and confused
