Brief Answer:
Please go through detailed answer dear.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for choosing "Ask a Doctor" service for your query,
Have seen your details and i appreciate your concerns,
As per the query given by you usually the presenting symptom of gallbladder stone is pain which is associated with nausea and vomiting.
However as in your case there is only Nausea i would suggest you to take tablet zofran 4 mg three times a day along with food low in fat for a few days.
One tablet pantoprazole 40 mg can also be taken daily(Both are over the counter medication).
If not relieved even in 3 days visit your nearest G.P.to get some blood tests done to check electrolyte levels.
Hope i was helpful,
Follow ups are welcome,
Thank you!
