I'm experiencing nausea almost every evening around the same time of 7 or 8 P.M. I notice an increase in blood pressure/heart rate around this time as well. I don't feel it has anything to do with anxiety, but perhaps hypertension? I additionally seem to be the most hypertensive at night which I don't know the underlying reasons behind. Is there anything likely going on with my cortisol/adrenal glands or could this be low testosterone as I've heard low testosterone and elevated cortisol tend to go hand-in-hand? I recently had my IGF-1 levels tested and they came back high. I don't know what to think of all this and these symptoms. I see endocrine clinic in around 2 months, but until then I am taking Meclizine 50 mg every night just to try to combat the nausea spells with 20 mg Propranolol for the hypertension/anxiety. I really don't know what else to do but I wish I didn't have to take medicine daily to combat this evening/night hypertension and nausea. What can I do to help?

Nausea Answer A64320
Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I would suggest you to have MRI brain with contrast to rule out organic cause. This could be due to worm infestation or gastritis as well.Use albendazole and proton pump inhibitors and look for the response.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
