Nausea (Latin nausea, from Greek ναυσία - nausia,[1] "ναυτία" - nautia, motion sickness", "feeling sick or queasy"[2]) is a sensation of unease and discomfort in the upper stomach with an involuntary urge to vomit.[3] It occasionally precedes vomiting, but a person can have nausea without vomiting. When prolonged, it is a debilitating symptom.[4] Nausea is a non-specific symptom, which means that it has many possible causes. Some common causes of nausea aremotion sickness, dizziness, migraine, fainting, gastroenteritis (stomach infection) or food poisoning. Nausea is a side effect of many medications including chemotherapy, nauseants or morning sickness in early pregnancy. Nausea may also be caused by anxiety, disgust and depression.

 

The word nausea is from Greek ναῦς - naus, "ship"; ναυσία started as meaning "seasickness".

 

A hangover

is the experience of various unpleasant physiological and psychological effects following consumption of ethanol, which can last for more than 24 hours. Typical symptoms of a hangover may include headache, drowsiness, concentration problems, dry mouth, dizziness, fatigue, gastrointestinal distress, absence of hunger, sweating, nausea, hyper-excitability and anxiety.[1]

 

While the causes of a hangover are still poorly understood,[2] several factors are known to be involved including acetaldehyde accumulation, changes in the immune system and glucose metabolism, dehydration, metabolic acidosis, disturbed prostaglandin synthesis, increased cardiac output, vasodilation, sleep deprivation and malnutrition.

 

Beverage-specific effects of additives or by-products such as congeners also play an important role.[1] The symptoms occur typically after the intoxicating effect of the alcohol begins to wear off, generally the morning after a night of heavy drinking.[3]

Motion sickness

Motion sickness is a term that describes an unpleasant combination of symptoms, such as dizziness, nausea and vomiting, that can occur when you're travelling.

 

It’s also sometimes known as travel sickness, seasickness, car sickness or air sickness.

 

Initial symptoms of motion sickness may include:

  • pale skin

  • cold sweat

  • dizziness

  • an increase in saliva

  • vomiting

 

Some people also experience additional symptoms, such as:

  • rapid, shallow breathing

  • headaches

  • drowsiness

  • extreme tiredness

  •  

In most cases, the symptoms of motion sickness will start to improve as your body adapts to the conditions causing the problem.

 

For example, if you have motion sickness on a cruise ship, your symptoms may get better after a couple of days. However, some people don't adapt and have symptoms until they leave the environment that's causing them.

 

Anyone can get motion sickness, but some are more vulnerable than others. Women often experience motion sickness, particularly during periods or pregnancy. People who often get migraines may also be more likely to experience motion sickness and to have a migraine at the same time.

 

Motion sickness is also more common in children aged 3 to 12. After this age, most teenagers grow out of the condition.

PMS

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) refers to physical and emotional symptoms that occur in the one to two weeks before a woman's period. Symptoms often vary between women and resolve around the start of bleeding. Common symptoms include acne, tender breasts, bloating, feeling tired, irritability, and mood changes. Often symptoms are present for around six days. A woman's pattern of symptoms may change over time. 

 

While PMS is linked to the luteal phase, the causes of PMS are not clear, but several factors may be involved. Changes in hormones during the menstrual cycle seem to be an important factor; changing hormone levels affect some women more than others.

 

Chemical changes in the brain, stress, and emotional problems, such as depression, do not seem to cause PMS but they may make it worse.

 

It is estimated that about 60% of women suffer from PMS while in some the symptoms are so severe that present a burden in their every day life.

 

Physical symptoms include tender breast, bloating, changes in appetite, dizziness, headache, nausea and tendency to vomit. 

Nausea and vomiting can be succefully treated with Emecalm.

Pregnancy
Morning sickness

Nausea is one of the most common symptoms of pregnancy, with or without vomiting. It most commonly occurs between weeks 5 and 18, and symptoms are usually at their worst around week 9.

 

Although pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting are often called “morning sickness,” it can arise at any time of day and it occurs for 70 percent of pregnant women. Some may fell a slight dizziness in the morning while others may feel bad all day long and nausea in the presence of food or other odors.

 

In reality, nausea and vomiting may be an indication of the change in hormonal levels.

 

Even though the exact causes for nausea during pregnancy are not established to this day, there are indications that higher hormonal levels of b-chorionic and hyper secretion of gastric fluid along intensified smell are responsible.

 

At about 3 months the body has adjusted to the higher hormonal levels and nausea stops

  • Medications: There are both over-the-counter and prescription anti-nausea drugs that are safe for pregnant women. Always consult your doctor first
