ZocdocAnswersI feel daily sickness, but am never sick. What could be wrong?


Feeling sick daily, face burns up for minutes. Happens a lot if not every day, sometimes eating helps to soothe it but sometimes its an hour or so after eating.


That is an excellent question, and one that would best be answered by your primary care doctor or other medical professional. There is not enough history available regarding your age, gender, or other medical comorbidities to provide a good answer for your complaints specifically, but here are some general causes of daily nausea/sickness that may potentially be the cause of your symptoms. If you are a young female, there is a potential that you may be pregnant, and this is morning sickness which is normal to experience during the early part of your pregnancy. If that is not the cause, it is possible that you have acid reflux, which is sometimes related to eating, can make you feel sick and can sometimes be relieved after eating. There are other causes for daily sickness that are less common and therefore outside of the scope of this discussion. Nevertheless, your primary care doctor should be able to obtain a complete physical and history related to these complaints and decide upon the correct work up options as well as the appropriate treatment options if they are available. You can also try some over the counter antacid to see if that helps before you see your doctor.
