Nausea, Vomiting, and Diarrhea
in Wake Forest & Raleigh

Nausea is the feeling that precedes vomiting, but not the actual act. Nausea can be caused by a variety of factors, including infections, injuries, illnesses, or other medical conditions. If you are experiencing constant or frequent nausea for no identifiable reason, this may be an indication of an underlying health condition.

Vomiting occurs when the contents of your stomach are forced up your digestive track and out your mouth. Like nausea, vomiting can be caused by a range of factors, such as food poisoning, influenza, morning sickness, and a range of other health conditions.

Diarrhea is classified as three or more episodes of watery and loose bowel movements in a day. Like nausea and vomiting, diarrhea can be caused by a range of factors, such as food poisoning, influenza, morning sickness, and a range of other health conditions. Whether or not diarrhea is a sign of a serious underlying condition is dependent on the underlying cause and how long symptoms last. Diarrhea that lasts for one or two days is classified as acute diarrhea, whereas diarrhea that lasts for more than four weeks is classified as chronic diarrhea.

If you are experiencing any of these issues, we are here to help identify the underlying cause and provide you with the care you need.

  • After consuming alcohol: Nausea may occur during or following consumption of alcohol.
  • Due to an underlying condition, infection, or disease: Nausea is a common symptom of many diseases, infections, and conditions. If you are experiencing nausea along with other symptoms, it is important to have a professional healthcare provider perform an examination to diagnose the underlying issue.

  • Motion sickness: It is not uncommon for individuals to feel motion sickness on airplanes, ships, or cars.

  • Psychological conditions: Depression, anxiety, fear and stress can all trigger feelings of nausea.
  • Pregnancy: Nausea (especially in the morning) is very common among pregnant women, especially during their first trimester.

Once the underlying cause of your nausea has been determined, appropriate treatment can begin, which may include anti-nausea medication or making lifestyle changes.
