HI! My husband has been getting very sick lately. He gets extremely nauseous. This has been going on for about a year now. He even got so nauseated last March that I took him to the emergency room because he blacked out. We've been to several doctors and no one has been able to pin point why he gets so nauseated. He doesn't get a fever when he gets sick and he doesn't actually throw up. He hasn't vomited since he was about 12 years old (he's 25 now) so the fact that this nausea doesn't make him throw up could be because its been so long since he has thrown up. He has tried to throw up but he can't (He thought it might make him feel better). We have tried changing his diet by eliminating lactose products. This didn't seem to work. Usually after he drinks alcohol he will get really nauseated the following day, but this isn't always the case. Sometimes he will get nauseated even if he hasn't drank in a week or so. The doctors have previously thought maybe his stomach wasn't emptying but lately that seems as if that isn't necessarily the case. THe medicine they gave him to help his stomach empty does not sooth his nausea. His bowel movements are pretty regular. The main symptom is just this horrible recurrent nausea that hits at any time: day , night, morning no matter what he has eaten or hasn't eaten!! Can anyone help??

  • Just a shot in the dark here -- when my C2 vertebra is subluxated, I get nauseous. Have you checked with a good chiropractor about how you neck is?

  • Look into benign positional vertigo first. It could be a quick fix if the floor positions/exercises help.
