I have this problem that every now and then I feel nausea and start to gag or retch (as it seems to be called) . What could cause this problem? Some say its GERD and others say its acid problems. What do you say?
Nausea and retching can occur due to a number of different reasons. It could be due to diseases involving the abdomen, nervous system, metabolic disorder, infections, drugs etc.
Abdominal problems especially peptic ulcer disease are common causes.
PPI might be helpful.
