Chronic nausea?

Posted

I'm an OB nurse, so this is not my specialty. What would you all think of an 11 year old with chronic nausea? No other symptoms except maybe some fatigue, slight dizziness, but mainly just nauseated, especiallly after eating. Doesn't seem to matter what he eats. This happened a year and a half ago and lasted about a month, now is back and has been going on for almost 2 weeks. No vomiting, no diarrhea, no other medical hx.

Love to hear your thoughts!

thanks!

Have him checked by his physician...could it be stress? Anyway, it could be all kinds of things and a doctor needs to address it.

I did, actually. He had some lab work done, no results yet...

I suppose it could be stress. There's really nothing much going on in his life right now that should be too stressful, but he tends to be a worrier-type child.

Thanks for the response!

could it be a food allergy? is there any reflux?
