Acid Reflux Cause Nausea
A: See another doctor, could be acid reflux, stress, your diet. Sounds like you only tried one doctor? You could see an internist or specialist. I threw up frequently for 2 years once, gross I know, but it turned out I had a thyroid problem that was only diagnosed with a blood test.
Q: zantac cause nausea??
I have acid reflux and the Dr. prescribed me Zantac. It make me REALLY nauseated. Does zantac make anybody else nauseated. I was wondering what a person did to releive this or if they switched to a milder acid reflux drug?
A: According to the “Davis’s Drug Guide for Nurses” nausea is a side effect. You may want to call your Dr. for a different script.
Q: What might cause this??
My husband has bouts with severe nausea and diarrhea. He’ll feel great for a few weeks, then get hit with it again for a few days. This has been going on for about a year and a half or so.
Don’t tell me to take him to the doctor…he’s been MANY times, and has had tests done as well. They say he has acid reflux and they’ve given him medicine, but why would acid reflux cause severe, repetitive throwing up and diarrhea with no common trigger???
Please help us out!!!!
A: Have the doctors checked for food intolerance?
Celiac disease can cause these symptoms as well as many other GI diseases and food intolerance.
If the doctors refuse to do tests you can do an elimination diet to determine if the common culprits make him feel worse.
Q: What could cause my nausea?
I have been nauseous ever since the 5th of July. I do not know what can cause it. I dont know if its what I am eating or what. And usually whenever I do feel nauseous I get a pain like I’ve been hit in the stomach. Also I get dizzy. What could cause this.
Also I do NOT want to vomit because I hate the feeling of it and when I do, I keep doing it over and over again.
I know I have anxiety problems and acid reflux but I dont know if that could be linked to it.
Please help me.
A: I have both anxiety and acid reflux problems too – and chronic stomach aches. My stomach aches are just from those two things. I have been taking pepcid every morning when I wake up before I eat breakfast and it has helped a lot. I’ll also chew a piece of gum when my stomach starts to bother me and it kind of keeps my mind off of it. Just watch what you eat and see if there is something that makes it worse – then stay away from that food. Feel better soon.
Q: I am lightheaded, dizzy, has nausea, i have a stomach ache and a headache…. What could it be?
i am a 13 yr old and i have acid reflux… could that be a cause… I have been lightheaded, dizzy, has nausea and i have both headaches and stomach aches.. for the last few days and a couple of times over about three weeks.
and i know i’m NOT pregnant.
and please don’t put any stupid or ignorant things up here because i’m not sexually active and i don’t do drugs or drink
A: if you have been consuming dairy products there is a chance your lactose and tolerant.
Acid reflux can mean your consuming too much pop or soda or too much fast food or fried food. Eat healthier. Drink more water instead of sugar drinks like soda,kool-aid,juicses and make sure your not skipping meals. eat breakfast lunch and dinner. Not eating combined with taking medicine like tylelnol or advil can give those symptoms.
Q: GERD, Acid Reflux with NO heartburn?
Hello. I have been having a lot of troubles lately with headaches (that’s another story) and on and off stomach problems. I would be nauseous for a week or so, eating just bland foods, then a week later, I’d be fine … a few weeks later the nausea would come back, etc. I’m finally going to see a GI (hopefully I can make an appt soon) but I’m curious what this could be? Sometimes I get a burning, gnawing pain in my stomach, but I thought heartburn was felt in your chest so I don’t think it’s heartburn? Could Acid Reflux or GERD or maybe an ulcer be causing on and off nausea? Thanks.
A: Heartburn/Acid Reflux can be felt in many places.
Sometimes its buring in my stomach, other times its further up in my chest or in the back of my throat.
If you had an Ulcer, you would be having more pain when u eat and possibly blook in your stool.
Nausea just seems to acompany most stomach/digestive issues.
Do you eat many fatty/spicy foods?
Are you over weight?
Do you eat alot of bread or gluten?
These are all things you need to ask yourself.
From what i have read and experienced, doctors are not always correct or even know what is going on.
Many people self diagnose.
I suggest doing more reasearch on the net to find out more.
I mean Acid Reflux/IBS/Gluten/Wheat intolerance are all so similar and often do not having specific test to diagnose.
You can try elimination diets.
I HIGHLY suggest keeping a food diary and making not of when and how you feel sick daily.
That can give some clues.
Feel free to e-mail me.
Q: What are other reasons for missing periods and preg symptoms besides pregnancy?
Ok, my last period started 6/05/09 and i have not had any bleeding — a little vaginal discharge, but no blood. my breasts are sore and are lactating a little bit, and the color around the nipple is a tiny bit darker than usual. i have problems with nausea (which is not uncommon because i have had stomach ulcers which also cause nausea and acid reflux) and aversion to scents/foods. HOWEVER, i have taken like three preg tests, all negative. i even had a blood test done, also negative. i know that thyroid issues can cause skipped/irregular menstruation but all of these symptoms at once? surely there are more reasons that I don’t know and can’t find on webmd… what do yall think?
A: a sympathetic pregnancy – not actually pregnant but your body responds as if you are- can even include swelling of the abdominal area
Q: Would stress cause constant nausea?
My stomach always hurts and I always feel like Im about to throw up! Its really annoying! Were about to start taking finals in school and I have had to do a lot of presentations lately and that stresses me out, so could that be the reason why Im constantly nauseous? I have been to the doctor for it and they gave me Prilosec which is for acid reflux, but that didn’t help at all. I usually focus on it too much and that probably makes it worse than it really is, but I have had this going on for a really long time and I want it to stop
A: yes, stress can cause nausea. but if you’re getting it even when you’re not anxious you might want to look into other possibilities. for me it turned out to be food allergies.
Q: Why do I have this slight dizziness and nausea condition?
Last monday I somehow started to develop this dizziness and nausea condition. They’re somewhat mild depending, but makes me motion sick to be in a car. It’s been persist though for the entire week and now this week. I don’t know what it is, but I’m getting some tests done soon. Does anyone know what it could be?
I’m very healthy and I haven’t felt any other pains. However, I was told last month that I have GERD (acid reflux) and I take Famotidine for it. Once I had that condition undercontrol, I have been fine until now. I don’t feel that its the acid reflux causing this, but I have no idea. Any help would be great. Thanks
Well, I’m getting better now and it turned into just this very slight dizziness feeling. I feel better at night too. So, not sure what it was or is.
Turned out to be a virus in the inner ear. Thanks everybody
A: Any sinus drainage or inner ear issues? Also, how long since you have had an eye exam? Nausea and dizziness can happen from a broad range of conditions or causes. Car sickness can often be from an eye/ear problem.
Dizziness is one of the listed side effects of your Famitodine/Pepcid. You could try another acid reliever such as Prilosec OTC to see if the problem improves.
Q: Nausea and vomiting only at night?
For about the past week I’ve been getting sick at night. I’ve vomited 3 times which is really odd for me even when I’m sick. I’ve also had some loose stools but not quite diarreah. I thought at first maybe I’d just eaten some bad food but my husband hasn’t been sick. I feel fine during the day with the exception of being a little tired. So does anyone have any suggestions to what it might be? I took a pregnancy test about 3-4 days ago but it said negative. I’m only feeling sick at night right before bed and it gets worse as soon as I lay down. Could acid reflux cause this, or possibly gall bladder problems? Thanks for everyone’s answers…
A: maybe stomach flu or food poisoning
Q: Is this Acid Reflux? or am I sick with a cold..?
Hi, for the best 5 – 7 weeks I have been dealing with Acid Reflux. I’ve been feeling small symptoms for these past weeks, then they got worse. I have been feeling a lot of dizziness, sinusitis in throat, feeling nausea like I’m about to throw up although I never do.. It also feels like theirs something in my throat but there isn’t ANYTHING there. It feels like a air bubble or something like that. I’ve been feeling all this for the past 5 – 6 days and I feel worse in the morning and at night.. the only time I feel even a little ok is during the day. I even feel a little bad when I eat, now I don’t have a cold (I think) because I have not thrown up, I don’t have a fever, and I’m not coughing. I also deal with anxiety, and have a fear of throwing up, so when I feel like I am, does that cause what I’m feeling?? please reply D:
A: Please go to the doctor. Acid reflux is pretty much unmistakable, if you have it. There are lots of symptoms that are caused by anxiety, but some of them could be something else, such as a sinus infection. Even if you are American, go to the doctor!
Q: Does the human body digest stomach acid?
I wake up in the morning with huge stomach acid problems usually resulting in vomiting, i was wondering if my body even digests this acid reflux crap cause i usual wind up puking it up, i was on zantac now im on a even more powerful ant acid. If the body doesnt digest it i was wondering what kind of food best absorbs it if anything. My breakfast now consists of dry cereal and a bottle of water to make the nausea go down. This problems sucks to wake up every morning to and cheerios is not fun to eat every morning lol. Ive been to the doctor plenty of times, was wondering if anyone had a offhand opinion?
ive never had this problem before, started 2 months ago ive been a heavy drinker since 13. i think my doc perscribed me to nexium, the perscriptions coming in ive been to a gastro. All those food you just named i love including hard liquor lol. This is terrible this forces me to change my lifestyle
A: I used to have the same problem. I changed my diet, quit eating sugar, spicy foods, etc. But the only thing that worked for me (and KEPT working) is Nexium.
I loooove my Nexium now. It is the only thing that helps me.
If this is such a big problem, you really need to go to your doctor, he will probably want to do a scope on you. He will need to prescribe you the Nexium too, if you want to take it.
Edit: Oh and quit taking Advil, Aleeve, or Ibuprofen. It makes it worse.
Q: Acid refux help?
I am 16 years old and have acid reflux. I cant really cook my own meals and have trouble finding foods that dont make me sick. I am on medication, but it doesnt seem to help. Does anyone know of foods that dont cause nausea or any natural remedies to help ease the heartburn?
A: Hi Kendra,
I too have had acid refux all my life. I had it as a kid so I know what you are going through and still to this day have it. Try foods that aren’t spicy and foods that are not greasy. Eat a lot of fruits and veggies and stay away from sodas ( i know its hard but its worth it). A good remedy I try when I run out of my medication is 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda when your stomach is upset before going to bed. Don’t do it all the time though. It has a high salt content. I also recommend that you chew Tums as well.They are high on calcium and my gynecologist recommends it to me. Also, the Ask your parents to cook some healthy foods for you too. Maybe you should go back to the doctor and tell him your concerns about this as well. I hope this helps. Good luck.
Q: chinese herbs?
im 13 years old I have tried lots of doctors prescribed drugs and too many natural remidies too list, i have made all the possible lifestyle changes too get rid of my acid reflux which causes constant nausea (for 2 years) and then i came across something which says chinese herbalists can help or even cure it. have you had any experinces with this? or if you think it is a good idea or know anything about it or something similar please answer! and i will be really grateful!
thank you again!
A: If lifestyle changes haven’t helped the problem, then you may want to consult a natural doctor (whether it be Chinese medicine, homeopathic, chiropractor, or another one in your area). There is something going on in your body that is causing this problem (which is highly unusual for a 13 year old) and removing the cause of the problem is the only way to completely get rid of it. Herbs and Chinese medicine can definitely treat the symptoms of the reflux and nausea, but without knowing the underlying problem that’s causing it, you’ll just be taking that product for the rest of your life instead of fixing the problem causing it.
If your parents don’t want to pay for a natural doctor to help you, then you could point that out… taking medicine over the course of the next 5+ years that they’ll have to pay for vs. a trip or two to that doctor. (it’s MUCH cheaper for the doctor to fix it than to take medicine for years)
Also, I agree that you shouldn’t get on the drugs… those will do much worse to your body than the reflux would. I know people that have bone and joint problems (among others) because the reflux medicine prevents most of the stomach acid they need to digest their food. Good luck!
Q: Is it possible to have excess stomach acid without having ulcers or acid reflux?
I’ve have increasingly worsening stomach problems. There’s a very very long list of symptoms, but here’s the abridged version. Nausea and dry heaving, sometimes preceded by a warm, very dull burning sensation in my stomach. I have a very incomplete list of causes for these symptoms, as I keep discovering more potential causes. They can be caused by: eating less than 3 meals a day (but sometimes I’m okay even if I do), going on a run (but most of the time I’m alright even after I do), birth control (I took birth control for a month), and others. After the onset, it is very difficult to get rid of, because eating making me feel like throwing up, and my hunger exacerbates the symptoms. It’s taken me anywhere from a week to 5 months to recover from a single episode.
So now on to my question.
I’ve seen many doctors with this problem. Most have been no help at all. One doctor, however, told me that it seems like I produce excess stomach acid. He told me to take extra strenght Zantac twice a day for a month, so that my stomach lining could heal. It worked, so I assume that he correctly diagnosed my problem. Now, this doctor was in urgent care at the hospital near my university, so not my primary care physician. So he said he couldn’t do any follow up to see what my problem was.
All the other doctors have done so far is test me for H. pylori, which I did not end up having. We’re looking into seeing a gastrointestinal specialist, as these episodes are coming with increasing frequency and disrupting my everyday life.
Okay, so all the extra details aside, would it make any sense at all that I produce exess stomach acid, but don’t have ulcers (no sharp or severe burning pains… mainly nausea… and no trace of H. pylori) or acid reflux (sometimes I feel stuff creeping up my esophagus… but it is NEVER painful)? Or does the absence of these symptoms mean that the doctor diagnosed me wrong, and the Zantac working was just a coincidence or a placebo?
Edit: I don’t drink coffee or alcohol. I eat fairly healthy and I hate greasy or processed foods. So it has nothing to do with any of those.
A: First, if the Zantac worked and now your symptoms are back, I would have already re-started taking the Zantac. You can go to WebMd.com and type in heartburn (which is another name for acid stomach) and read up on this. Some of the foods you are eating can exacerbate this stomach acid problem. You might also be having gallbladder problems and you can type gallbladder disease on the WebMd.com website and read up on this. If a doctor prescribed something and it fixed the problem, then his diagnosis was probably correct and not a coincidence.
