Nausea

Hello, I saw the answer you gave to a person who was concern about nausea along with gastric problems.  I do not have the gastric problems but I do have the nausea after eating problem.  With my problem I get nausea and I have to eat something sweet in order for the nausea to go away.  At first it started with foods such as eggs and cheese, now it is anytime I eat breakfast, like today I ate buckwheat pancakes with syrup I could not finish, the nausea started and I had to go and drink apple juice and I could not finish eating because the nausea would come back.  I do not have a gall bladder it was removed so I am wondering if this could be the problem.

A variety of diseases can lead to nausea after eating.

This can include GERD, an anatomical mass or stricture, ulcer, inflammation of the esophagus or stomach or delayed gastric emptying.

An upper GI series or upper endoscopy would be a reasonable place to start, and if negative, more specialized tests like a gastric emptying scan, 24-hr pH study or esophageal motility studies can be considered.

If the gallbladder is suspected, imaging with an ultrasound or CT scan can be discussed.

I would considered these options in conjunction with a GI physician.
