For the past 2 weeks I have been extremely nauseous in the mornings. I notice that is is only on weekdays when I have to go to work. On the weekends I wake up and I am fine. The nausea is so bad that I literally dry heave. I am having some hard times at work and honestly, hate going. I am not sure if this is stress related. I am not pregnant. Any bees deal with this or have some advise?

Hm. The only thing I can think of, is do you take a multivitamin? If so do you take it with or without food?
If I take them without food I get SUPER nauseaous.
Either way, hope you start to feel better, and if it IS work related, you need to get OUT.

What is different about weekdays as opposed to weekends? That would be the biggest clue. For instance, do you have to wake up earlier on weekdays? I know when I was in High School and had to wake up at 6am I would feel super nauseous in the mornings. Also eating super early would make my stomach feel upset as well. What I would do if I were you is just pay super close attention to what I do differently from weekdays and weekends. Hope this helps!

I get that alot. Mine is from sinus drainage. Sometimes it gets so bad that I do actually get sick and it can last half the day for me. Do you have any sinus or allergy issues?

Try some Reed’s Extra Ginger Ginger Ale. It really helps. I make my own ginger ale now. Sorry for your trouble. I am sure the stress is not helping… :/

@tksjewelry: I do have sinus and allergy symptoms
@SweetartMD: The only difference between weekends and workdays is that I have to go to work and I do have to wake up earlier.
I will try and monitor and see if I can figure out what the trigger is. I am thinking that maybe it is nerves because of how hectic work is lately. Thanks ladies!

Could it be from birth control or a vitamin taken with not much food in your stomach? You could try eating a few crackers or something to see if the nausea gets better.

This happens to me too – my entire life! Never so bad that I dry heave, but bad enough where I call out sick from work or school. For me, its because I wake up earlier on weekdays and then I get into a cycle of being stressed out since I know I will feel sick when i wake up early. Its kind of a self fulfilling prophecy.
I just eat a hard boiled egg white in the morning, and wake up even earlier than I have to so I have time to lie in bed and read gossip articles to “wake up” gently and am not pressured to rush into work.

@Tswife4ever: I would try something that will dry your sinuses out before you go to bed. Try excedrin sinus. Nothing with guaphedrin in it. See if that helps. Sometimes there is nothing that I can do about it except a dry piece of toast and hot tea.
Oh, and avoid milk products before bed and avoid also when you get up until your stomach settles.

Do you feel any tightness in your neck or jaw? You could be either grinding your teeth or just clamping down on your jaw at night due to stress (hence it not being present on the weekend).
I don’t grind, but I do “chomp.” I basically just clamp my mouth tightly. If I don’t wear a bite plate at night, I often wake up feeling sick or with a terrible headache.
You can get a cheap bite plate at the pharmacy…it takes a little getting used to, but after a couple days of waking up feeling fine, it’s worth it!

One other thought could be a low blood sugar.During the night a lot of people naturally have a dip in their blood sugar and you might just need a snack when you wake up earlier in the mornings to help bring it up.

@SweetartMD: me too! I had to wake up at 6am for high school and most days, I’d have to sit down from dizziness / nausea in the middle of my getting ready routine. and the issue never happened on weekends.
1. I was skinnier back then and had bad food habits, so maybe I had low blood sugar in the morning
2. AND maybe if I didn’t have enough rest, maybe the dip in blood sugar seemed worse. so, maybe on the weekends I wasn’t feeling it because I was well rested.

@Tswife4ever: Could totally be a combo of the sinus/stress/waking up earlier. If I get up too early, my body hates me all day b/c of the way my sinuses are draining. And during finals each semester, when I’m really stressed and waking up earlier than usual, I almost always puke brushing my teeth and feel icky the whole morning.
Like PPs said, maybe see about taking some sinus-drying meds before bed, avoid milk/dairy before bed, and give yourself a ‘gentle wake up’ time. I also brush RIGHT AWAY to try to beat that puke-y feeling, and then eat something bland like toast and a boiled egg right after so that there’s something to settle my stomach.
Honestly, it could totally be mostly the stress of hating work. If you find that some of those medical type remedies don’t work, it may be time to start looking for a new job and ditch the stress this one is causing. I hope you feel better soon!

Sounds like work stress. At my old job, I worked for this girl who was my age but was my boss and I couldn’t stand her. She was really gossipy and back stabby. She’d tell us all how great we were and then complain to superiors that she did all the work herself, etc. Working with her was awful, and on top of it our engagement was pending and I was super exciting and I had lots of stomach issues those few months that I was in that position. I don’t think I ate breakfast once in those months. Plus side, I lost weight! lol

My first thought is that on the weekends you are probably waking up slower and taking your time where as in the morning you probably jump up and get going. I would try waking up slower in the morning to keep your blood sugar from going crazy, set your alarm a half hour or hour early and just slowly wake up. See if that helps. Also I tend to feel sick on weekday mornings too, I just am not an early morning person, I find if I step outside and get a bit of fresh air that helps with making me feel better and more awake.
