Nausea After Eating Anything.

I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right place, but here goes...
Lately I have been extremely nauseous after eating anything. I have acid reflux and some kind of ulcer (can't remember exactly what it's called). I have had them both since age 13, and I have learned to deal with them well. I haven't had any acid rise into my throat or heartburn anymore than usual. I just cannot eat without feeling sick. Sometimes it gets so bad that I break out into a sweat and can't do anything.
It started happening about two days past ovulation. I don't know if that has anything to do with it, because obviously that is too early for preg. symptoms.
I need help and I can't get to the doctor right away so I would appriciate any help anyone can give.

Hi...may I ask, if u have had this issue are u on meds or have u modified ur diet?....there r things u can do to help calm down those acids...but , if u continue to eat and drink substances that add to the acid...u can have issues and not feel it...there is a condition called silent reflux...in that u do not feel the heart burn...but the acid builds up enuff to affect the voice box and  u do not want that....

Get to ur GI dr and see the Health Pages here on MedHelp for tips on foods that r safe and which foods to avoid-http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/list?cid=236

I take protonix and use antacid tablets occasionally. I also try to stick to a diet that excludes anything tomato based, spicy, etc., and stay away from sodas or citrus drinks. Thank you for the link to the foods to avoid.
I'm not exacty sure what the problem is since I have been eating mashed potaoes and toast when I can eat for the past week.
Thanks for the input, I guess a trip to the doctor as soon as I can will be my best bet.

Well u can get reflux from not eating as well....we need to eat and the acid will be there to break down the foods...so u do need to put the food in .

Also try the lifestyle tips...like elevating the head of the bed.....no eating 3 to 4 hrs prior to lying down...notice I did not say going to bed, just lying down .....but it does  mean both.....
any change in weight be it a gain or loss can affect our reflux too.....

Eat...but try smaller meals but more of them....4 to 5 small meals......

Good luck
