Brief Answer:
Common viral infection...

Detailed Answer:

I have gone through your medical history carefully and understood your concerns.

Feeling nauseated especially after eating is indicative for possible common viral infection as long as all examinations resulted normal.

I advise to:
- be careful with foods your eat: avoid oily foods, chilly/spicy, etc.
- avoid eating too fast
- consume more water
- avoid carbonated or colored drinks
- take probiotics
- OTC ranitidine for up to 2 weeks

Wish fast recovery!
