Comprehensive Nausea, Vomiting & Diarrhea Treatment Available in Tampa, FL

Like most people, you’ve probably experienced nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea at some point. Fortunately, these unpleasant sensations are relatively benign and can be treated with over-the-counter medications or by resting. However, if you experience them frequently or if they’re accompanied by other symptoms, such as dizziness or chest pain, you should see a doctor.

What are the Causes of Nausea, Vomiting, and Diarrhea?

Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea (NVD) are common side effects of many medications and can be caused by various factors. Here are some of the most common causes:

  1. Drug interactions: When two or more drugs are taken together, their effects can sometimes combine to cause NVD. This can happen when different drugs work on other parts of the body or when one drug interacts with another in the body.
  2. Food poisoning: Some types of food poisoning can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
  3. Gastrointestinal virus: The gastrointestinal viruses (such as Norovirus, rotavirus, and E-coli) are responsible for a large number of cases of NVD. These viruses can spread through contaminated water, food, or air.
  4. Surgery: Many procedures – such as surgery to remove the gallbladder or stomach – can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea shortly after the surgery.
  5. Radiation therapy: Radiation therapy is often used to treat cancer and can damage the stomach and intestines, leading to NVD.

How to Treat Nausea, Vomiting, and Diarrhea?

Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are all symptoms of the same disease – gastroenteritis. While the cause may vary from person to person, some general tips can help treat these symptoms. Tips to help you get through your gastroenteritis:

1) Drink lots of fluids, and drink water, juice, juice boxes, soups, or broths. Avoid caffeine and alcohol, which can dehydrate you.

2) Eat light and bland foods. Avoid spicy foods, heavy foods, and foods that contain many dairy products or milk. Instead, try bland toast with jam or peanut butter, an apple or orange, crackers with cheese or peanut butter, or yogurt with granola.

3) Get rest. Relax in a comfortable position and take short naps if you feel tired.

4) Use over-the-counter medications as needed. If you have heartburn medication, take it as directed. If you have pain reliever medication for a headache, take it as directed.

Prevention Tips for Nausea, Vomiting, and Diarrhea

Many things can cause nausea and vomiting, but food poisoning and the flu are the most common culprits. Here are some tips to help prevent these problems from happening:

– If you get sick, stay home from work or school until you feel better.

– If you’re experiencing nausea or vomiting, drink fluids frequently. Water, apple juice, broth, and sports drinks, are all excellent choices. Avoid carbonated beverages, alcohol, and caffeine, which can worsen symptoms.

– If you think you may have food poisoning, don’t wait to see a doctor. Sometimes food poisoning can be mild and go away on its own, but in rare cases, it can be life-threatening. Get medical help immediately if you experience any of the following: fever, muscle aches, severe headache, loss of appetite, or diarrhea that is bloody or watery.

– The best way to avoid getting the flu is by vaccinating yearly. The flu can cause nausea, vomiting, and a fever, so taking precautions against it is essential.
