Nausea Q&A

What is nausea?

Nausea is the queasiness you feel in your stomach that causes an urge to vomit. You may also have stomach or throat pain and watering in the mouth. 

Though vomiting and nausea often occur together, you can feel nauseous without vomiting. Both vomiting and nausea are symptoms of other conditions. In many cases, nausea resolves on its own.

However, if you have severe nausea or ongoing feelings of queasiness along with vomiting, the providers at All Valley Urgent Care can determine the cause of your symptoms and give you the care you need. They also treat diarrhea, with or without nausea and vomiting.

All Valley Urgent Care provides pediatric care and adult care. 

What causes nausea?

Nausea may occur from an infection, head injury, or as a side effect of a medication. Common causes of nausea include:

  • Gastroenteritis
  • Food poisoning
  • Concussions
  • Chemotherapy
  • Emotional fear
  • Severe pain

You may also feel nauseous if you have problems with your vestibular system, which is the system in your ear that helps maintain balance. Pregnancy is also a common cause of nausea. 

What happens during an evaluation for nausea?

The specifics of your nausea evaluation at All Valley Urgent Care depend on your symptoms and the suspected cause. Your provider asks detailed symptoms about your nausea and accompanying symptoms (vomiting, fever, diarrhea) and if there are any triggers (smells, food).

They also review your medical history and perform a physical exam. If they suspect your nausea is due to an infection or some other medical condition, your provider may run a urinalysis or blood work to confirm or rule out a diagnosis through the in-house lab services.

They may also do a pregnancy test. 

What are the treatments for nausea?

Treatment for nausea depends on the cause. Your provider at All Valley Urgent Care reviews their findings with you and provides treatment recommendations. 

If your nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea is making it hard for you to eat or drink and you're dehydrated, your provider may recommend intravenous (IV) fluids for rehydration. They may also prescribe medication to control nausea.

If you have a bacterial infection, your provider prescribes an antibiotic. They also talk to you about the types of foods you may tolerate best and encourage fluids.
