Welcome to just answer. I am here to answer questions for education and information. I will respond shortly with an answer, or a question for you

Not sure what question you are asking. Of course, we can not diagnose him and that is not what we do. We answer specific questions.

I am sure you are concerned but it appears he has had no work up for the nausea. An EKG does not exclude a heart problem.

GI problems require other tests.

Has his doctor seen him?
