I have nausea after every meal.

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hey guys,

I am a 21 year old male and I have been having a lot of issues with my stomach. I have nausea literally after meal or anything that I eat. This has been going on for a year now and at first it was happening once in a while, but now it is everyday. In terms of treatment, my gallbladder was checked and it came out fine. I also have done a test for H. Pylori to ensure that I don't have gastritis or anything and it also came back negative. About a couple months ago I had an endoscopy done on me that showed that my stomach was actually healthy with no inflammation and so my doctor concluded that it was just stress. I do have a history of clinical depression and chronic stress. The depression I believe is at least 85% gone, but the stress is still here. I've tried a lot of things to manage the stress and they have helped a little but, but I haven't seen a very big difference in the nausea. This problem is just destroying me because I can barely sit at work or even go to the gym. Any tips will be appreciate (please).

PS Can vitamin deficiencies contribute to nausea after meals (I don't feel nauseous when I don't eat)?

      I was taking PPI before for reducing stomach acid and now I don't have any more heartburn or anything at all anymore so I stopped them.

    If you don't feel nauseous when you haven't eaten but you feel sick after eating, this would suggest something in your diet could be causing it. Have you introduced anything new into your diet? Try a food diary to see if it is a food and note down every time you experience stress and if your nausea comes on as a result. A history of stress and depression may explain your nausea because stress upsets the gut. Try these solutions first since you have had negative tests.

      I will definitely try that and in regards to your other comment I haven't had fruits and veggies in maybe like years. I eat them once in a while but not as much as I should. I don't eat multivitamins either so I'm going to work on this as well.

      If you eat lots of fruit and vegetables, you shouldn't need to supplement with multivitamins because the fruit and vegetables contain the vitamins and minerals you need. All you need to try is a balanced diet which includes fruit and vegetables.

      What I was really asking was had you started eating something different that you hadn't eaten before?

      No, I've been eating generally the same stuff but yeah I reduced my fruit and veggie intake. That was the only difference to my diet.

      That's what I'm hoping it is because it doesn't seem to be what I'm eating. It's just eating in general that is the problem. I get nausea no matter what I eat.

      If going back on fruit and vegetables stops the nausea, then this could indicate that the nausea was your body's way of telling you that you need them. Some vegetables are rich in iron and this could help too. My doctor told me to stop oranges which were the only thing that helped my constipation. He wanted to see if that would help my stomach pain. Instead, excluding oranges increased my nausea, stomach pain and constipation. In desperation and panic, I went back on oranges and my symptoms improved. The body can have strange ways of telling you what it needs.
