nausea,sensation of discomfort, or queasiness, in the stomach. It may be caused by irritation of the stomach by food or drugs, unpleasant odors, overeating, fright, or psychological stress. It is usually relieved by vomiting. Nausea is frequently present during the early months of pregnancy, and it is a concomitant of motion sickness. However, nausea may also be the symptom of a serious illness; thus persistent nausea should receive medical attention.
an unpleasant sensation in the epigastric region, along the esophagus, and in the mouth, associated with stimulation of the vagus nerve; it is often accompanied by dizziness and weakness and usually ends in vomiting. Nausea may be produced by direct stimulation at the root of the tongue (as when a probe is swallowed), by disturbances in the abdominal organs, by various types of intoxications or infectious diseases, by the intake of certain medicines, or by motion sickness. Atropine or sedatives may be used to suppress nausea. Treatment is directed at the underlying disease.
