How do you know if anxiety is producing my nausea or if it

Customer Question

Hi. How do you know if anxiety is producing my nausea or if it is the pregnancy? I was feeling high anxiety today but I also introduced something new to my diet..ensure protein drink and I felt sick for hours. Which is it likely to be? I am 26 weeks pregnant and still battle nausea here and there daily but I am not sure if my anxiety is causing it or if my stomach is just sensitive.

Hello

Thank you for your query. I am Dr Pravin and being a Medical specialist I would be able to assist you with your query.

Please do note that my goal is to provide you with excellent service.

Before I answer your query I would like some more information :

Do you have history of similar vomiting nausea since the 1st trimester of pregnancy or is this something new that hs begun in the 26th week ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yeah i have suffered from nausea since first trimester. No vomiting. But I often feel nearly close to it.
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Thank you very much for your reply.

It can be due to hormonal influence and the newdrink that you did introduce .

Anxiety can also contribute however at 26 weeks it is a higher chance that the stomach sensitivity and the protein drink are causing it.

If it does not subside over 1 week, you would need to take Gelusil once daily in the morning.
Do consult your obstretician for the same.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

Do you Agree with what i have mentioned ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've been using zantac 75 twice a day. Do you think gelusil would be better?
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Yes , even other option is DOXINATE tablet

That is also safe. That will work better.

Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

However , please note that you may need a prescription for the same.

Gelusil you can get over the counter.
