Hi welcome to Health care magic forum , From you question you are sick from quite some time. The symptoms you are explaining are after starting of these medicines or before that. If it is after starting the drugs metronidazole have the gastric irritation property and due to that one will have vomiting sensation, giddiness, etc.

If it is before starting the usage of drugs it might be due to some disease,either psychological or gastritis, or some thing else, I advise you to consult a physisian for diagnosis and treatment.

Besides i advise you some diet recommendations as avoid taking spices, chillies, junk foods, and oily foods.

Wishing for a quick recovery and thanks for calling.
