This has never happened to me before.

Patient

Q: I feel like throwing up every time I try to eat or think about eating. What do I do?

Symptoms:  I get nauseous even I try to eat or think about eating. This has me feeling weak from lack of nutrition.
Doctor

A:   Prolonged bouts of nausea may be symptoms of indigestion commonly, or in some, of the so called GERD or Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease. Sometime chronic constipation may cause nausea associated with lack of appetite. Detailed clinical examination and interview are necessary for specific diagnosis. Please visit your family physician for help.
