Nausea is the sensation of unease or discomfort in the stomach, usually as a result of the viral gastroenteritis (stomach flu), and is usually coupled with vomiting in most cases. Viral infections, morning sickness, acute illnesses, and food poisoning are the most common causes of nausea. Nausea is a common symptom of various diseases and conditions, which means that patients should consult their doctor if they begin to experience nausea along with other illness symptoms.
If nausea is accompanied by increasingly irritating symptoms, than schedule a telemedicine consultation with an Instant Tele Care provider. Treatment for nausea is dependent on the root causes of your symptoms.
Vomiting is also caused by viruses, overindulgence, intense pain, and from frequent drug and alcohol use. Patients that are vomiting from illness or environmental causes should make sure that they consult a doctor if they have consistent vomiting followed by a high fever, dehydration, dizziness, confusion, difficulty standing, or significant headaches.
Just book a telemedicine visit at Instant Tele Care if you are experiencing consistent vomiting . Our providers can walk through treatment options, at-home self-care options, and advise the next steps for easing vomiting symptoms.
Diarrhea is watery/runny bowel movements that occur more than three times in a day. Diarrhea can be caused by many things including viruses, bacteria, medications, stress/anxiety, running, diabetes, alcohol abuse, or a reaction to a certain type of food that one may be allergic to.
Some patients have other associated symptoms along with diarrhea including nausea, vomiting, fever, and abdominal pain.
Diarrhea is very common and as long as hydration can be maintained, most people recover without any issues. So drink plenty of fluids unless you have underlying kidney, liver, or heart disease. In this case, you will need a consultation on how to proceed. Make sure to avoid any gum containing sorbitol. Avoid any spicy food, fruit, alcohol, and caffeine.
Diarrhea treatment will depend on the cause of the diarrhea. Please schedule your consultation today as our providers will need to assess the severity of your symptoms and come up with a treatment plan.
