I can't afford the $50 to call you
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
No. This is the first tine I've had chronic nausea. Started over a week ago..Saturday before Halloween. It just started suddenly
Expert:  drbrush replied 7 days ago.

It's hard to say for sure what is going on just by talking to you on the computer. I think it's certainly possible that sometimes people can get nausea from chronic reflux. Since you have not tried any reflux medications I think it would be worthwhile to get generic Zantac or ranitidine 150mg and start taking one tablet in the morning and one tablet in the a.m. Hopefully within a day or two this should take care of your symptoms. If it doesn't I think you need to see your doctor and they might have to run some other testing or refer you to a specialist

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Aggravates the anxiety. Can only eat toast and drink sips of water. Worried about dehydration too
Expert:  drbrush replied 7 days ago.

If you continue to have symptoms over the next 24 to 36 hours since you could be getting dehydrated they might have to give you fluids, I think you should go to your doctor or the emergency room
