Nausea every morning

Posted , 5 users are following.

Ive developed a problem since being on holiday. I wake each morning with a feeling of mild nausea accompanied by burping a lot, especially after eating. The feeling of sickness can disappear after eating and then comes back at various times during the day. I also suffer from reflux and take Gaviscon at night. I'm wondering if this could caused by acid or perhaps inflammation in my stomach? I'm worried as I had an ulcer many years ago.

    It would be helpful to rule out a new H Pylori infection. Traveling to different areas is the most common cause. They have 3 different tests, breath, blood, fecal. If your doctor agrees, it is best to do 2 different tests. Once you rule that out you can go on to choosing the proper treatment.

      I had this infection many years ago and was treated with anti-biotics. I'm planning to do the bicarbonate of soda test to see if I have too much or not enough stomach acid. I have a feeling that my stomach acid is low as taking PPI's seem to make my symptoms worse.

      I don't think that will give you definitive results. There are too many variables that cause pain, bloating and other symptoms. i.e.; gastritis, an inflammation of the stomach lining can create huge amount of gas and nausea. But, finding the initial cause of the gastritis can be difficult.

    THE Bicarbonate of Soda test determines if you have high or low stomach acid. I tried it and the results show that I have low stomach acid which is odd as all my life I have been treated for too much acid! Its on Youtube just search for 'test for stomach acid levels'. The way I understand it is that if you have high acid levels when you eat the valve detects this and closes tight stopping the acid from rising, but if you have low acid levels the valve stays slack causing reflux.. My question now is how can I raise my stomach acid to a normal level?
