I wake up every morning feeling nauseous and not hungry.

(15, male)
This happens every morning, no matter what. I wake up and feel nauseous and tired. It is hard to eat, especially something really sugary or with substance, like bread, muffins, etc… The feeling goes away within 2-4 hours. What could this be? It has been going on for almost 4 years now and I am over it. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide! :)

What are you able to eat in the morning? For example, if you were to have a cup of tea without milk or sugar, would it go down OK? Or, something that isn't full of carbohydrates, such as cucumber slices or carrots or celery?

It's possible that your blood pressure is low in the mornings, which can make you feel both nauseous and tired, and certainly your blood sugar will be low. Have you tried eating a high-protein snack right before bed, such as cheese?

Hello! The easiest thing to eat is stuff like cereal and fruit, things without much substance. I will try cheese as a snack, normally I just use it for sandwiches! Is there a way to check my blood pressure in the mornings? Thanks for the help!
Blood-pressure cuffs are sold online and at a lot of places, either the pharmacy section of a bigger store (like Walmart) or at a pharmacy like CVS or Walgreen's. They are in the $20 to $30 range, I think, and it's interesting to measure your blood pressure over several days to see how it changes with activity.

Waking up really tired and not nauseous would suggest that you need to get into a sleep pattern that gives you another hour or two of sleep every night. Teenagers are growing fast, and sometimes it's just exhausting to the body. But if it's always accompanied by nausea, that suggests either your blood pressure or your blood sugar are down. The way to assess the former is to measure every morning and keep a record of your b.p. upon waking, and if you see a low count a lot in the morning, discuss it with your doctor. The way to deal with the latter is by increasing your protein intake overall, and especially in the evening before you go to bed.  There are lots of high protein things that make good snacks -- walnuts, filberts, almonds, peanuts and peanut butter, cheese, yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, milk, tuna fish, meat like beef jerky. Eating more protein overall is a good thing. Eating more at night so you don't wake up in the morning with nothing of any food value left in your stomach is even better.

In short, hit this from two directions. One is, work on your sleep patterns and try to get more. It matters SO much if you are a teenager. The second is, learn what amounts of protein you need in your diet and try to eat some around bedtime. Good luck!
