Why do i have nausea when I have a bladder infection?
Patient :Hi. firstly I have had a big stress factor in the last couple days. I noticed this morning that I have a bladder infection. I have had this before and still have some anti-biotics from the last time so I took one this morning, with some vitamin c. The difference with this time is that I feel very nauseated. I try to vomit but nothing comes out. My lower back does kind of hurt. I was wondering if I should just continue with anti-biotics till tomorrow and see if the nausea goes away, or should I go see a doctor right away?
Symptoms: Bladder infection with persistent nausea
Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
The nausea is not because of Bladder infection.
You are getting nausea from the antibiotics you are taking.
Stopping the antibiotics is not a good idea.
As the infection has to be treated so you need to take antibiotics.
I would advise in such scenario to take a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone.
This combination helps a lot in controlling nausea caused by antibiotics.
I hope it helps.
