What causes nausea after smoking tobacco and drinking alcohol?

default
Posted on Tue, 19 Jul 2016
Question: Hi, I've been smoking XXXXXXX Leaf tobacco and cannabis daily for about 5 years now but recently, whenever I smoke a rollie or anything else I feel very nauseous for about 30 minutes. This has become more frequent and occasionally I feel nauseous when I eat but mostly when smoking. I also feel nauseous when I drink alcohol sometimes but it's usually on the first pint and then I am okay. Also, I have recently changed my diet to eating healthy with a good balanced diet while excersizing through boxing and weights. Could I be making myself feel nauseous by overthinking it or is there a more serious problem with my stomach? Thanks for any help available.

Brief Answer:
It is simple problem but need serious attempt to stop smoking and spirit

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

From the available description it is almost clear that there is known culprit for feeling nauseous. It is well known fact that Smoking, Spirit and Stress (3S) are the most common cause for gastritis and in your case there is potential involvement of two factors (Smoking and Spirit).

I do not think it is serious problem in current stage but if the Smoking and alcohol continued it could develop into chronic gastritis which is serious problem and may need long term treatment. If not managed properly there is risk of gastric perforation and internal bleeding which again are the serious problems.

I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Doctor,

Thank you for the help this has cleared thigs up for me. I am going to proceed with no alcohol for the next few weeks and as little smoking as possible for the foreseeable future. I have also just finished my second year of university which could account for the stress factor. Should I be taking antacids or anything to support my healthierdiet? I used to drink acidic drinks like Coke Zero as if they were water which can't have helped so I am trying to cut back on those too.

Thank you
doctor

Brief Answer:
Antacids can be taken

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for reverting back to me.

I am glad to know that you started making efforts by cutting down on smoking and reducing number of cigarettes. In the mean time there is no harm in taking antacids as it protects the stomach mucosa from more insult and damage.
I must make it clear that antacids will be required for first few days and once the measures to control gastritis employed properly, you can stop anacids.

I hope this helps you further.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for my future patients.
