What causes nausea after food intake while on medication for acid reflux?

For the past week and a half now I ve been experiencing a growing level of nausea. Shortly after eating it is the worst, but then the nausea generally subsides about 30 minutes to an hour after. It doesn t matter what food type, it s anything I eat. At first when I started having this problem I figured I was getting sick. But I have no other symptoms. No sore throat, coughing, sneezing, or anything like that. I have acid reflux disease, but keep it under control with medication. I ve never had this problem before, and don t understand what it could be. It s really annoying because I have to force myself to eat now, and I ve lost my appetite for almost all foods because I know how I ll feel after eating. It s really stressing me out, and I know I would have to go to a doctor to get a 100% answer, but I can t afford it. I don t eat a lot of junk food, and have actually started eating a lot healthier because I figured it would combat the problem, but it s not doing much. I ve been drinking a lot of fluids also to try and help. When I do drink fluids I don t get nauseas, only when I eat solid food. A couple of months ago I had an ultra sound for gall stones for a completely unrelated problem but there weren t any. Any idea what this might be?

Hi,

Possibility of underlying ulcer disorder, digestive enzyme disturbances, liver, pancreas related pathology or others. If the ultrasound was normal, next step of intervention should be CT scan of the abdomen & pelvis for more precise judgment.

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