For the past 5 or so months I have been having frequent nausea and upset stomach porblems when I wake up in the morning. It used to only happen about once every two weeks or so, but now it has been frequent almost everyday. I wake up feel nauseaus and I can't eat anything. A few times I will actually vomit. I have a lack of apetite for most of the day, then later in the afternoon I will get hungry and be able to eat, but not very much.
I eat less now also because of it, I don't have an apetite when I wake up and then a little food will fill me up in the afternooon. I will eat a normal dinner, but then when i wake up the next day, it will start all over again, sometimes it's worse then others.
what should I do?

your problem kind of sounds like what I went thru a while back and I ended up at my primary care and she recommended I take Prilosec OTC twice a day, she said it sounded like silent reflux. I began watching what I ate too, tried to stay away from tomato/sauces, spicy food, onions, peppers and such, there's a whole slew of them! After about 3-4 days it did get better and I stopped taking it and it came back again so I have to keep taking it for the most part. Maybe talk to your primary care about it. I also take zofran for the nausea that helps and wear those anti-nausea wrist bands, you can get at the drug store. They also have ginger gum at some of them it works instantly also the ginger tea works well.
Try not to overeat or eat late at night. Sometimes if I bend over too far it will make me nauseous!! I guess the acid comes up. I don't let my tummy get too empty either, some folks like saltines I prefer pretzels. A little Pepsi will help me settle my stomach sometimes but I think too much will make it worse.
This is my two cents I'm no Dr. hope it helps.
