Do you ever have days where you just feel queasy?

Asked by JONESGH (3554points) January 25th, 2010

It’s one of those. I’ve been feeling kinda sickish all day. Anyone know some home-remedy type things. I don’t have any meds around nor do I feel like taking them.
Thanks guys.

I get it a lot. My stomach got really sensitive not too long ago and I throw up after certain foods and sometimes feel sick all day. I try and just have a lot of water, eat something that’s not too flavorful (my favorite is saltines or rice) and lie down for a bit. Water helps me the most, though.

Flat ginger ale, saltines (as mentioned) or toast with very little butter are good. Don’t eat a big meal; just nibble.

Perhaps some ginger tea or peppermint tea would be helpful.

My friend just told me to use peppermint oil. She works with a health research place, so I’d think she’s trustworthy enough with that topic.

That always happens to me when I haven’t had enough sleep. Nothing really makes it go away, but drinking mint tea helps (if I’m sleepy, I drink the caffeinated kind, but if you’re just nauseous, stick with herbal), as well as avoiding acidic foods, which make it worse for me. Dairy products could go either way. Usually a little yogurt or a few sips of milk help. More than one glass of milk can make it worse.

I just sleep until it goes away. My doctor says it is related to my diabetes.

That happens to me often. I think it’s a psychosomatic symptom. Here are some things I’ve tried that work:

1. Peppermint tea
2. Ginger ale
3. Chewing on ginger crystals—You can buy them in the spice section at your local grocery. They are expensive, but they work!
4. Dramamine—My last resort when nothing else works.
