Hmm… do you have anxiety medicine? That definitely helps. Otherwise, have some ginger ale and look up the acupressure points for nausea.

It definitely could be anxiety.  I have a tendency to grind my teeth in my sleep if I’m feeling stressed out, and then the tension in my neck will make me really nauseas.  I vote for getting a massage!

I am so easily nauseated that I have become an expert on the subject. 🙂 Grab some non-drowsy Dramamine and pop one when you feel it coming on. Works every time for me; hope it does for you too!

Eating small,frequent meals will help. It will keep a small amount of food in your stomach so your stomach acid doesn’t eat away at the lining and it wil keep you blood sugar stable.

Non pharmaceutical things to try:

  • Try acupressure:

    • Place the tip of your right index finger on the underside of your left wrist, about 4 cm (1.5 in.) from your hand. Acupressure points are very small, so you may need to try this method more than one time.
    • Apply moderate pressure for 2 to 3 minutes.
    • Repeat as needed.
    • Acupressure bands, which are available for motion sickness, may help reduce nausea.

  • Suck on peppermint candy or chew a stick of peppermint gum. Peppermint may relax tight muscles in your stomach and help decrease the stomach contractions that may be causing your nausea.

Bland, plain food.  Eat a few saltine crackers or a slice of white bread.  That may settle your stomach.  Definitely nothing spicy, fried, or acidic.

oh girlfriend….I’ve been dealing with nausea since June 22! Turns out my stomach digests too slow and that makes me feel sick. It’s called gastroparisis (Don’t know how to spell that). Like you, I felt nauseated ALL. THE. TIME. After many a test the doctors found the problem. It might be a good idea to have a stomach emptying test done to see if that’s the cause. If you have questions about it, PM me. I’m slowly learning a lot about it.

Definitely the pressure point on the inside of the wrist has worked for me.  I get nasty carsickness and when I don’t have a Gravol with me, if I press there it helps, whether it’s just psychological or not I don’t know!

Also, ginger helps with nausea.  You could drink ginger ale or Gravol has what they call natural Gravol, which is basically ground up ginger made into pills.

Ditto on the natural gravol, the regular stuff knocks me out.  I also have a prescription, metoclopramide, that works quite well.
