What is nausea?

Nausea is the urge to vomit. While nausea doesn’t always lead to vomiting, it’s an intensely uncomfortable and even miserable feeling in its own regard. This feeling can range from mild and short-lived to severe and almost constant.

What causes nausea?

Nausea has many causes. It’s prevalent in people who have temporary illnesses like the flu and motion sickness. However, those types of nausea go away once the illness resolves or you’re back on solid ground.

Chronic nausea is another matter entirely because it comes on far more frequently and tends to be more severe. Nausea may even be a daily part of your life. When you have chronic nausea, it can be nearly impossible to eat normally, and the very smell of food might make you even more nauseous.

Some of the most common causes of chronic nausea include:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Migraine headaches
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Bowel obstructions
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Certain medications; for example, chemotherapy for cancer treatment

Chronic pain, which can come from various sources, is another common cause of nausea.
