constant nausea, always worse in the morning- not pregnant
I have been unwell for about 5 wks. I have a constant queasy nausiuos feeling. It's always worse in the morning and then most nights it goes away. I have had numerous tests including an ultrasound, an endoscopy and a CT scan all showing nothing. I was diagonosed with a UTI 2 days ago and have commenced antibotics. Could this have been the cause for this all along?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Commonest cause of chronic nausea is acidity. Take omeprazole (empty stomach in morning) and antacid gel and see if it helps. Liver and kidney dysfunction is another cause. Hence kidney and liver function tests should be done. Other causes are diabetes and hypothyroidism. Electrolyte imbalance too can cause nausea. IBS, gluten or lactose intolerance, parasites in gut too can be the cause. A stool test should be done for worms, giardiasis etc. Also if nothing is found then food challenge test to detect food intolerance should be done.
It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult your doctor. Take care!
