What Does Nausea Indicate After Every Meal?

default
Posted on Thu, 2 Nov 2017
Question: Okay so for the past (about) four months ive had coming and going symptoms. It first started with just mild nausea that woud make me lose my appetite every now and then. But as it went on it started to happen more frequently.

I would start eating lunch or dinner and a huge wave of nausea would come over me and i couldnt eat. Which would lead me to be eating only once a day when this would happen. Sometimes though(in random occurances) when i go without eating i get super sick, weak, and out of breath or i would throw up from not eating.

This also started to affect my bowel movements. It would feel like i would have to go to the bathroom but when i went in there it was mostly gas or soft matter.

I tried to go have a colonoscopy done because my mother has crohns, but i threw up both types of prep for the procedure(pill and liquid forms) so i just cancelled the colonoscpoy all together(my gastroenterologist said he didnt think i had it)

So now i still have this nausea and is takong a huge toll on my health. Im always tired and weak and barely eat anything in a day. Im not anorexic, I hate how my body is acting at the moment.

So what do you suggest this could be? Also any suggestions on what i should try? Allergy test maybe? I just want to be normal again, thank you!

Brief Answer:
Possible gallbladder disease

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

I understand your concern although I wish you'd have provided information on your height and weight. Anorexia can still be the explanation to this condition.

If pregnancy is a possibility, then please also do a home pregnancy test first.

Otherwise, ongoing nausea, especially food-related makes me think of a gallbladder disease. You'd normally also experience pain, heartburn, discomfort, indigestion, chest pain, increased pain especially after eating fatty meals, but not necessarily.

I recommend you initially have an ultrasound of the gallbladder done, followed by a test of the liver enzymes.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.
Wishing you good health and all the best.
