Brief Answer:
It could be a stomach flu

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

I am sorry to hear about your troubles. What you describe sounds like a stomach virus. I suggest you try magnesium hydroxide, e.g. Galieve. You can also try ondansetron or a proton pump inhibitor, but these are prescription drugs.

Do you have a fever? Have you ever had a gastroscopy?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the reply. i do feel a little cold and feverish but the thermometer is not showing any reading. No, i've never had a gastroscopy. The main issue is with the nausea and the headache and loss of appetite. Can you help me deal with this Nausea first?

Thanks

Brief Answer:
I suggest magnesium hydroxide

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

I suggest you try magnesium hydroxide primarily, e.g. Galieve. You can also try ondansetron or a proton pump inhibitor, but these are prescription drugs. Paracetamol, or aspirin can also help with the headache. It is paramount to stay hydrated, but if you are too ill to take water, you should go to the hospital for intravenous rehydration.

Hope this helps.
