Does anyone know what might cause very frequent bouts of nausea?
I have suffered from this for most of my adult life. Every few days I feel really sick. Sometimes I wake up with it, sometimes it developes later in the day. Sometimes it's just a background feeling. Sometimes I feel v close to vomiting.
I've always dismissed it as it never (or v v rarely) developed into vomiting. Occasionally I get an upset bowel too but not every time. For ages I thought it was an anxiety thing as I get nauseous when anxious but actually I'm rarely anxious but often nauseated.
I can't think of specific food triggers. It's worst when tired but that's about the only pattern. I think it might be worse after fatty foods too and caffeine.
DH wants me to get it checked as some days I have to lie down until it passes.
I'm not on the Pill no. But when nausea first became a feature of my life I was.
Superworm - coeliacs runs in my husband's family so I have always assumed that's the generic cause of my daughter having it but I will investigate. If I did have to go gluten free at least my daughter would be happy!
Definitely worth checking. Transient nausea was my main symptom really. Had it on and off for years, would even wake me a night sometimes. Occasion diarrhoea too but not always. I'm the only coeliac in my family so never occurred to me it would be food related.
Yes, you may be a celiac or gluten intolerant. I suffered the same symptoms as you, especially feeling nauseous several times a day. I cut out wheat/gluten and feel loads better. It also stops that acid indigestion and I can lie on my back at night now too.
