Nausea Q & A

Integrative Physicians

What is nausea?

Nausea is an uneasy and uncomfortable feeling that you get in your stomach, often hinting at the imminent need to vomit. Nausea can range from a slightly uncomfortable to agonizing feeling. Nausea can also last for a few moments or linger for a prolonged period.

Nausea can be difficult for people to describe, but a lurching stomach and clammy skin often accompany it. People sometimes feel the discomfort from nausea in the back of their throat, upper abdomen, and chest.

Nausea commonly occurs before dry-heaving and vomiting, but you can experience nausea without either.   

What are the causes of nausea?

Nausea is not an illness, but rather, a symptom of another condition. Some of the most common conditions that cause nausea include:

  • Motion sickness
  • Certain types of medication
  • Food poisoning
  • Overeating
  • Emotional stress
  • Ulcers
  • Concussion or brain injury
  • Gastroparesis
  • Intense pain
  • Pregnancy

How do doctors treat?

Treatment for nausea depends on its cause and your overall health. 

Medical marijuana is a safe and effective treatment for nausea. It has been shown to be more effective than many pharmaceutical medications and doesn’t have the negative side effects associated with such medications.
