I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Sudden onset of nausea from a long time, triggers on moving arms or bending, normal scans, blood work. Possible causes?

My 83 year old Mother has had for several years sudden nausea that happens for no apparent reason. She has had scans, procedures, & blood work to check for ulcers , acid reflux , stomach emptying problems, heart conditions etc. with no major problems found. Her gall bladder has been removed for at least 10 years, as well as her female organs. She does have diviticulitis and high blood pressure, which she takes meds for. It seems that her nausea comes on rapidly when she is shopping or moving her arms or bending. Her gastro , family and heart doctors have not found any reasons for these nausea attacks. Can you offer any possible reasons for what is happening to her. She does not feel dizzy, have headaches or notice anything before these episodes happen.

Hello,

Sudden nausea with all normal evaluations relates the issue with underlying stress or though process induced gastric hypersecretions.

She requires regular counselling with a psychotherapist for best results.

Till that time, antiemetics as ondansetron or metoclopramide prescription from her doctor will work great.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,

For over 6 months now, I get episodes about 1-2 times a month of sudden onset nausea , profuse sweating, dizziness , and headache. I ve also had heartburn for the last 5 days. I also have been recently diagnosed with slight anemia and have very heavy periods that last 7-8 days. My doctors are currently running tests on me and they just found a thick uterine lining of 11mm a week after my period ended. I m scheduled for a d&c this week to check for abnormal cells. It sounds like they have found a couple of different issues here with me, but I m most concerned about the nausea and dizziness episodes I mentioned earlier. It s very difficult to deal with as I m out of commission when it happens - meaning I can t work or take care of my children. Any ideas what this might be caused from? My primary care physician is sending me for an ultrasound of the abdomen next week.

My husband, age 76, has had dizziness, right hand tingling, occasional headaches, and feeling nausea. He has had this for about a year now. His energy level is very low after doing a small chore. He has had CT scans (head), ultra sounds of the stomach which proved he has a polyp on his gallbladder. He had his prostate (cancerous) out about 9 years ago. He had 33-34 radiation treatments for this and was put on hormone treatment for two years. His blood pressure is normally fine and blood test show bilirubin normal although he has gall stones contained within the gallbladder. His doctor believes that he has the onset of Parkinson s disease but a specialist he was sent to says no. One other doctor also does not believe he has Parkinson s disease. So - what is wrong? He is becoming baffled as to what is happening to him. Please can someone help.

I had gallbladder surgery 7 months ago,did not have a good recovery, it seems now i have like a build up of pressure with having to urinate, when i have to urinate i have to go immediately same with the bowel movements. I really do not know what is going on? What do you suggest or think it could be? A couple of times i have had some pain with the bladder feeling full.

I have sharp pain that comes and goes near my belly button, maybe down and a little to right. I have had this on and off for years, but certain times I ll have an attack. Now is one of those times and probably worst ever lasted for over 12 hrs sharp pain when it comes is a 10, coming and going from 15 min intervals to maybe an hour, no consistency, always have diarrhea with it, but again this time completely watery. I am 41 years old. When I have gone to doctors they schedule colonoscopy endoscopy, but they can t find anything cause my symptoms are gone by then, attack is over, so they find nothing.Closest thing my doctor suggested was gall bladder sludge that may be irritating my bowl or bile duct . My lipids were elevated during attack so he said it may also be irritiating my pancreas . How do I know if it is my bowl or gallbladder.
