Chronic nausea after food poisoning

On the 24th December 2013, I had food poisoning. Around this time, I was also under mass amounts of stress - I felt suicidal for a couple of days. My nausea never went away and I went to the doctors and was prescribed omeprazole.

3 months on, my stress and anxiety has disappeared yet my nausea has not. I'm still taking omeprazole, and I had some chocolate yesterday - and later that night and today I felt very sick. Even when my diet does not include acidic fruits, chocolate, alcohol etc I feel nausea first thing in the morning, and when I lie down.

I'm not getting heartburn, or acid reflux, I just feel sick. Does anyone understand this, and know how to combat this problem?

Thank you,

Thank you for asking

Its likely GERD symptoms and it needs diet and lifestyle modifications. Lose weight, eat healthy, avoid chocolate and beverages, lie with head side elevated at least by 8 inches, don't lie for at least 2 hours after a meal.

A dd some prokinetics to it. seek a gastroenterologist for further guidance. Our GERD health centres may also help.

Take care
