So for as long as I can remember, I feel extremely nauseous or “sick to my stomach” in the mornings for about an hour after I wake up. I often throw up my breakfast or can’t get it down. It generally just improves as the morning passes on; it’s the weirdest thing. I have seen a couple of doctors about it, and they never have an answer for me other than to tell me that I’m in extremly good health.
One of them even suggested I just take it easy in the mornings and perhaps wake up later, but that’s kind of impossible when you have a job, you know?
I get enough sleep and eat really well.
I don’t have anxiety issues, so I know it’s not that.
I’m wondering if any other Bees have experienced anything like this. I know it’s not due to a pregnancy or I literally would have been pregnant for years- haha.

Hmm that is odd. Do you eat late, or soon before you go to bed? Sometimes, hubs will eat and then go to sleep and the food won’t digest, so he wakes up in the middle of the night and throws up. Its crazy, but luckily doesn’t happen often

This used to happen to me a lot as a teenager. I remember being at a friends house or something and vomiting after breakfast only to get the uh oh pregnant remark and nothing could’ve been further from the truth. I never used to eat breakfast but now I do every morning and no longer have this issue. Maybe just trying different approaches to things like previous poster suggested it could be your body responding to your eating patterns. If you eat late try earlier, if you skip breakfast try eating breakfast. Maybe something super bland like toast but I believe your body will work this issue out on it’s own once you learn what works best for you.

This happens to me occasionally. I find that it happens when I DON’T eat late and my stomach is completely empty when I wake. also, Fiance has had this issue. He has acid reflux issues.

Yup! lol I have this now too its sucks I get it at night time too! Fiance was convinced I was preggers I wasn’t, either way I won a bet and got me some shoe money out of it lol. I have heard of this before in other people not sure what their diagnosis was though. Have you tried a multivitamin?

Ugh I get this too and I’ve had it since I was 13. So I’ve felt your pain for the past 12 years =(

I’ve always been one to wake up with a little nausea, and can’t really eat in the morning because it just makes it worse. I’ve asked my doctor about it, and he thought maybe I sleep on my neck funny, and my dentist thinks perhaps I grind my teeth and get nausea from the tension.

I have been this way my entire life. Getting up in the mornings takes a lot out of me. I can’t just snap out of bed and get with it. The earlier I have to wake up, the worse the nausea. When I was in school, I used to miss my bus a lot because I would be in the bathroom with diarrhea nearly every morning. I couldn’t eat, so I’d faint during the day, at times. When I was in high school, I’d try to shove a little breakfast down my throat (literally had to forcefeed myself) on the way to school so I wouldn’t pass out during the day. I’d end up feeling even worse when I did that.
Nothing has changed now. If I wake up really early in the morning (before 9), I cannot eat anything until after 9 or 10 AM. Even if I get up after 9, I have to wait at least thirty minutes before eating something. Then, I need to wait at least an hour after I eat to leave the house if I’m going anywhere.
It is horrible. People just assume I’m being lazy or something because I don’t start my day until well after everyone else. But, I physically cannot do it. I feel like what a pregnant woman says she feels like in the first trimester, only it’s EVERY SINGLE MORNING OF MY LIFE! I hate to imagine what I’ll be like when I’m pregnant.
I wish I could tell you how to fix this, but I have no idea what to do. I’ve tried just eating a light breakfast of fruit or something… even just juice, but that makes me sick, too.

Do you take any medication or vitamins first thing in the morning? I get really nauseous if I don’t eat something before I take my birth control pills, and I’ve heard of people getting nauseous from vitamins as well.

@Pinksapphire: I was the same way in school, and now that I’m a teacher, it’s so much worse! I have to be at school by 7:00 a.m., which means I have to be walking out the door at 6:30. I have tried juice, too, but it seems like the more sugar I eat in the morning, the worse the problem is.
@Leprechaun: I don’t take any medications, just a multivitamin. :/
@miss.nicole: What have you done in general to combat the sickness?
@MrsSl82be: I don’t eat late at night; I usually eat dinner around 6 p.m. and I’m not a big snacker, so it’s not like I down a big bowl of ice cream or something before bed.
I basically have to eat breakfast because it’s the lesser of two evils. If I don’t eat, I teach all day and don’t have an opportunity to eat again until around noon, which is six hours after I get up. I would be passed out on the floor if I ran all day without eating until that point.
I’ve tried everything: banana and a granola bar, oatmeal, toast, fruit, cereal, etc. I have noticed that the more sugary the thing is, the worse I normally feel.
I’m about to embark on a new school year and it’s scaring the crap out of me that I’ll have to deal with this again. :/

I know this would be little effort, but have you tried calming teas at night to maybe help your stomach? There are a lot of digestion foods as well that you can try. The first thought in my mind is stomach acid or something. But, I’m just guessing. It wouldn’t hurt to try. Make sure when you do eat your meals, that you are chewing well. Like to the point where it’s applesauce in your mouth before you swallow. Try some foods that are easier to digest. Like I said, just totally guessing to help you find some relief!

Maybe try a protein heavy breakfast, like scrambled eggs?

@Mrs.Firefly1: I know we aren’t experts on here, so I won’t be upset if what you suggest doesn’t work; I just appreciate you throwing out suggestions. 🙂 I don’t think it’s a deal where I’m not chewing well enough because the icky feeling kicks in even before I eat.
I have some calming teas I bought a while ago that I totally forgot about; I’m going to try that on Sunday night because I have some early-morning meetings on Monday. I’ll let you know what happens! 🙂
@Leprechaun: Heavy food in the a.m. literally makes me heave. Sorry if it’s Too Much Information. 🙂 haha

@brideatbeach: I used to have it all the time! If I had to get up super early, I would throw up. It’s gotten better since I moved out on my own and my life is “calmer.” Do you take the multivitamin first thing in the morning? A lot of those make me really sick. Maybe keep some peppermints in the kitchen. Peppermints have always helped calm my stomach.
