Any thoughts on why I might feel very queasy every day around 4.00 pm ish?
I'm not someone who forgets to eat by the way and am permanently in battle with my weight. So why is it around 4.00pm for the last year or so I always feel sick for a couple of hours. It couldn't come at a worse time of day since its when I'm full on with the kids etc. Can anyone provide some insight and possibly a dietry way of overcoming this?
you could be slightly anemic - this is the time of day when it peaks and it can make you queasy. also fact that it started after pregnancy suggestive of low iron. worth getting checked by GP as it's a simple blood test then iron tablets for a while.
4pm is my low part of the day.usually need to sit down for 15 minutes and eat some toast.Always feel the tiredest,edgiest and most irritable at this time.Occasionally feel a bit nauseous and headachey too- brain running on overtime trying to remember things for the next morning. I think you need a minute or two to build yourself up for the final furlong(make tea, tidy up,serve tea,wash up bathtime, bedtime, make pack lunches,make another cup of tea) and collapse.
A form of indigestion? If you've got a hiatus hernia it could be mild enough to cause no significant symptoms but makes you nauseaus (sp?) because of extra acid lurking in your tummy? Fruit probably wouldn't help - apples and pears maybe. Do you find it's worse after certain lunches? And if you're stressed that definitely has an impact on acid production.
