Can an ear infection cause lack of appetite and nausea?
it is a possible cause
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Yes, an ear infection is definitely a possibility. Sinus infection can result in an ear infection because of connections.
Ear infections, since the ears play a major role in balance, can cause nausea. Certain movements can aggravate this.
Sinus congestion/ infection can also cause nausea so if it is not completely cleared, this may also contribute to your symptoms.
Your doctor may suggest another course of antibiotics but till that time you can try dramamine to help with the nausea if it is severe along with the decongestant sudafed (even if you do not have nasal congestion, would help the sinuses if there is an issue).
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
I will definitely call my doctor Monday.
Thank you, again.
