I keep throwing up. What foods will help me get through this?

  • 2
52 female I get up and go to work from 9 - 4. About 3 I start getting the overwhelming nausuas feeling and about 330 after scrambling to finish my job for the day before actually throwing up. I never make it which causes me to obviously work slower and longer. Once I get through work then the horrible drive home I make it home crawl into bed and can't do anything until I get up in morning and have to do it again. I've been doing this for 2 weeks.

This is pretty weird. I am wondering what might cause your problems.

By theory, nausea caused by medical conditions would not be expected to occur at specific times. If it does occur, it is mostly attributed to psychological issues.

If I understand it correctly that you actually mean you just got nausea and vomiting these 2 weeks, then many medical conditions would have caused it and you need tests. For instance, it could be caused by a stomach tumor that blocks the passage of foods. Certainly, there are always other possibilities. It could only be determined by tests. You may consider seeing a gastroenterologist.
The most well-known natural antiemetic is ginger (Zingiber officinale). Ginger contains 5-HT3 antagonists known as gingerols. Clinical studies show that ginger may be effective in treating nausea and vomiting. Steep fresh ginger in hot water to make tea, or try candied ginger, ginger biscuits, or ginger ale.

Aromatherapy with peppermint essential oil may also be a safe and effective way to overcome nausea and vomiting. Try rubbing a couple drops into the back of your neck and taking deep breaths.

Cannabis has also been shown to be an effective antiemetic. It’s now available legally in many states, but may be considered an illegal drug in others.
