Can someone help me with my nausea?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi. I’m Madelyn and I’m 13. For over a year, I’ve felt this minor to medium nausea every night and morning, sometimes in the afternoon. There was a time in the summer when it stopped though, but as soon as I got back from vacation, I was loading up on Pepto for a week. Here are the details:

*no vomiting

*no urge to vomit

*nausea is slight or medium, only once was it severe

*causes me to lose appetite

*went home twice from school because of it

My parents have gotten sick of me waking them up in the night saying I feel nauseous. They keep saying that it’s nothing. Not once have they offered to take me to see the doctor. I have asked though. I know I havent been descriptive, so ask questions if you need to. Please help me know what’s wrong with me. I’ve had to sleep next to a pot a few times.

    Hi madelyn218

    Keep a food diary. Perhaps when on vacation you ate different food so did not feel nauseus. Keep a diary of what you eat at brekki, lunch and dinner and drinks and snacks inbetween and see if a pattern emerges with certain food or wishes......

    If Pepto makes this better then its due to gastritis.

    Drink more water to neutralise your stomach acid. Full Fat milk is even better.

    Are you very thin?- anorexics can get this because they stop eating and drinking.

    Your nausea could be many different things so you should see you doctor since it has gone on for over a year.

    Have you used ginger for this purpose? A pinch of salt with ginger before meal is very useful.
