Nausea and Vomiting

Acute nausea and vomiting

This can be caused by an infection, medications you are taking, pregnancy or a wide range of other medical conditions.  If your symptoms are severe, ongoing, associated with abdominal pain, chest pain or a fever you should seek urgent medical attention.

Chronic nausea and vomiting

Chronic nausea and vomiting is persistent.  This can be a debilitating and frustrating symptom.  Its origin can be the upper GI tract or may be caused by non GI problems. Common causes are;

  • Functional dyspepsia
  • Biliary pathology
  • Reflux
  • Inner ear problems
  • Neurological disorders such as migraine
  • Thyroid or an adrenal issue
  • Medications you may be taking

All of the MacMurray gastroenterologists are also general physicians so contact us for an appointment.  If your vomiting is associated with jaundice, weight loss, early fullness when eating or bloating then please contact us urgently for an appointment.
