What causes stomach discomfort and nausea?

Posted on Fri, 5 Jun 2015 in Liver and Gall Bladder
Question: I am having an unusual problem since past 1 year. Whenever I eat outside in a restaurant or in a party or even at my friends place (home made food), I am not able to sleep the whole night as my stomach becomes very uncomfortable and I feel nauseating. This happens 80% of the time and I feel like it happens when there is lot of oil in the food. Occasionally I throw up or have to use restroom. I feel little comfortable only after taking a glass full of buttermilk or sprite pop. My Cholesterol level is in the border and triglycerides or little high. Could this be the reason? I never have any problem with food made by my wife even when oil content is more or when eating home made sweets.

Brief Answer:
Reflux/IBS/gallbladder issues to rule out...

Detailed Answer:

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

Your symptoms are suggestive for possible:
- reflux
- gallbladder problems.

I need to know if you have done any abdominal echo so far? I need to know the condition of your gallbladder. Sometimes, sludge or inflammation/infection/stones can cause the same symptoms as you are having now.

For the moment, I advise to:
- avoid foods high in fat/spicy/chilly/processed/fried
- if no echo so far, should schedule an immediate abdominal ultrasound; discuss it further with your doctor
- take antacids after meal
- increase water intake and physical activity

Hope it was of help!
