Brief Answer:
Need to consult gastroenterologist.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sleplep,

Welcome to HCM,
You need to evaluate the exact cause of the nausea. Inflammation of liver, pancreas, GERD, appendicitis, pelvic inflammation.

If these things are ruled most likely to be due to stomach muscular disorder.
Consult a gastroenterologist and rule out the causes. As physical examinations and investigations are very necessary to find out the etiology.

Any query do get back,

Take care.
