Feeling nauseous. I started feeling nauseous yesterday

Customer Question
afternoon and all I had...
Feeling nauseous. I started feeling nauseous yesterday afternoon and all I had was a coffee then few hours later felt nauseous. Then I drank some water and seltzer, started to feel better and then after a few hours I decided to go out and on the bus I started feeling nauseous again so I went to get ginger ale. It did help a bit by laying down. All I ate yesterday was a small bag of chips and some pretzels. The night before that I visited an old age home and there was a guy who’s wife is in the hospital and he didn’t look well himself and he was very sweaty. Do you think it’s because of that? Or is it just all in my head? I just have nausea but no vomiting. Today I have a bit of nausea. What do you think it is? Also when I feel nauseous I try not to eat or drink anything except ginger ale, water or seltzer. I’m also a bit of a hypochondriac

I don’t have a thermometer but I don’t think I have a fever, no diahrrea, well I only did one bowel movement yesterday but it was before I started feeling nauseous. I didn’t really eat anything

Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
Nausea can be from different conditions.
Coffee can initiate nausea.
Sometimes anxiety disorder can be a factor.
It can come from gastroenteritis, gastritis, reflux, gallbladder disease, hepatitis, urinary infection etc.
Take plenty of liquids like oral rehydration solution, gatorade in sips so that you may not vomit.
Empty stomach can aggravate the condition.
Try to take bland food in small amount frequently.
Avoid taking tea, coffee, chocolates, carbonated drinks.
You can take zantac or Nexium.
If the nausea does not subside, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
I would expect 5 star rating if you are satisfied with it.
Regards.

Is ginger ale ok? And how long does it need to go on for to see a doctor?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Zantac or nexium helps with nausea ?
Pediatrician: Dr. Saha, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Yes, ginger ale can be used.

Zantac or nexium will help in gastritis related nausea.

You can wait 1-2 days.

Also is it possible that it can all be in my head? Because sometimes if I suspect someone of being sick or that they are sick then I notice I start to worry more and I feel nauseous after. Also how can I stop worrying about this? I worry a lot about health and germs
Pediatrician: Dr. Saha, Doctor replied 4 months ago

As I told before, anxiety and stress can be a factor.

Try to relax.

Ok and I don’t have symptoms of a stomach bug or anything right? Like no fever, diarrhea, vomiting. And are oranges good to eat when feeling nauseous or just crackers/bland foods?
Pediatrician: Dr. Saha, Doctor replied 4 months ago

You are not having symptom typically, in mild cases all symptoms may not be there.Small amount of oranges may be taken.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I don’t want to eat too much because I don’t want to throw it up. That’s one reason why I try to avoid eating when nauseous or felt it. Is that not good?
Pediatrician: Dr. Saha, Doctor replied 4 months ago

You can take food in small amounts frequently.

You can tolerate it in that way.
