Feeling nauseous for 3 days in a row?

Posted , 7 users are following.

I'm a 16 year old female, and I've been feeling nauseous for about 3 days in a row now. I'm definitely not pregnant, and it's not food poisoning, as I'm not actually throwing up, and it's got nothing to do with alcohol. I haven't tried taking any medications l, as I don't know what to try, but I'm quite worried as to what could it be?

    I wouldn't worry at this point. I have had a stomach virus when I was your age and I was nauseated for more than two weeks with vomiting as well. I got better. If it continues for a long time and you have other symptoms like fever and mailase then it is time to get help for it. Most likely it is a stomach bug of some kind. Hang in there it will get better.

    Nausea can be caused by hormonal changes, too much acid in your stomach or a variety of viruses that are always going around. 3 days isn't too long for any of those reasons. Which foods or activites have you found calm it down?

    For example if dairy helps like yogurt or milk, it may be acidity level and at your age I doubt it would be a chronic problem so taking Tums for a couple of days will fix that up or even some pepto.

    Depending on your periods your doctor may put you on birth control. I had very irregular periods at your age with terrible cramps and other stomach problems. My doctor put me on birth control for about 3 months if I remember correctly and it helped a lot with both.

    Viruses tend to run their course but things like crackers and ginger ale help.
