Nausea Or Want To Vomit After Bathing?
Hello, I often experience vomiting every time I take a shower if it is too cold, what might be the cause?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nausea or vomiting after bathing is actually not a specific thing, and although this does occur in a small number of people, there is no specific explanation. But so far, those who experience these conditions do not feel disturbed because the nausea does not continue to the next activity, and never to actually vomit. Nausea is not always there in every shower, only a few so this is also the reason why the cause is hard to find.
Among the various explanations so far, water that is too cold changes the body temperature too fast, affecting the speed and focus of the body's blood flow so that it triggers nausea. Another possibility is that when cold, some parts of the body contract, including some muscles in the digestive tract and that triggers the feeling of nausea. This does not happen to everyone because not all can feel cold at the same temperature. Some are more resistant to cold than others, and some are hotter than others.
What is clear again, this condition is not dangerous and you do not need to worry. You simply adjust to avoid bathing in cold water, or not immediately rinse your entire body with cold water but instead start slowly from one hand or foot first, then to the body and head. So, hopefully answering your question.
