Brief Answer: Your pre-existing gastric conditions is the cause Detailed Answer: Hello sir and welcome. Thank you for writing to us. I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that the symptom of nausea in your case has many conditions that could clearly be causing it right in your medical history. Acid reflux, history of gastritis, hiatus hernia, and the esophagus condition. I would like to say that this symptom should not be appearing this often if all these conditions are being well managed and treated. If at all you are on any medications for these conditions, please do write back to me so I can help you with a proper regimen further sir. If you are not on medications to address all these conditions, it is best you visit your doctor and first get adequately examined and then accordingly treated for them so you do not experience any further symptoms or discomfort. I hope you find my response helpful sir. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would more than happy to help you. Best wishes.

Brief Answer: It is most probably hyperacidity ma'am Detailed Answer: Hello ma'am, no problem. I am thankful that you are on medications for the same, but I seriously think that a high acid level a.k.a. hyperacidity is causing your symptoms. I would recommend you to visit your doctor and request for medications to help neutralize your acid levels, get a diet which would not aggravate your condition. But I am almost certain it is your acid levels that is causing your symptom. For now increase the amount of water intake and consult your doctor at the earliest ma'am. I could help you with medications, but I hope you understand why a doctors examination would prove to be more accurate than simply prescribing medications. I hope my response helps you ma'am. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications ma'am, I am always available to help. Best wishes.
