My issue started off about two months ago.. about once or twice per week I would become queasy after eating breakfast for the remainder of the day. It has become a consistent, reoccurring issue every time I eat anything. About ten minutes after eating, I feel queasy regardless of the food I am eating. I do not feel as though I am going to vomit, just generally queasy. It lasts about two to three hours and is accompanied by excessive burping that lasts up to three hours after eating. With the exception of the full feeling that Giardia causes, I feel similarly to how I felt when I had Giardia years back. It's becoming a bit overwhelming and makes it difficult to concentrate. The queasiness is not accompanied by pain or fever. Pepto, Mylanta and Tums do not make a difference.
There are many causes for nausea. This can include GERD, ulcers, inflammation of the esophagus or stomach, esophageal motility disorders, gall bladder disease or gastroparesis to name a few.
To work this up, I would suggest an upper GI series to make sure there are no anatomical (i.e. cancer or masses) issues associated with the vomiting. The upper GI can also evaluate for GERD or hiatal hernias. An upper endoscopy would be an even more thorough test.
Gall bladder disease can also present with nausea, and this could be evaluated with an ultrasound.
If those tests are negative, you may want to consider a gastric emptying scan to evaluate for gastroparesis (also called delayed gastric emptying, it is associated with a variety of systemic diseases).
Followup with your personal physician is essential.

I think there were a few things missed in my original post.. I am not vomiting.. I just feel queasy, not to the point of nausea. It is occasional, not consistent. I'd appreciate your modified response.. Thanks.
Whether you're feeling queasy or nauseous after you eat - the bottom line is that your symptoms are associated/exacerbated with food. The workup and possible causes remain the same. I would still suggest you consider an upper GI series/upper endoscopy or abdominal ultrasound as an initial test you can discuss with your personal physician.
