My Son is experiencing very bad nausea quite often accompanied

Customer Question

My Son is experiencing very bad nausea quite often accompanied by severe headaches. These symptoms last all or the better part of a day. He scheduled a CT scan which I feel is
overkill as he hasn't yet been seen by a specialist. Can you tell me what kind of specialist he should see a neurologist or a gastroenterologist or someone else. He is 24 and in otherwise excellent health.
Thank you

Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
I would have him see a neurologist and an allergist for allergy testing
some food allergies can cause nausea and severe headaches
he could be having migraine headaches causing his nausea and headaches.
he might benefit from trying migraine medications to see if they help.
I'm surprised the ER didn't do a head CT already
let me know if you have questions.
