Nausea When Sitting Too Long?
Hello I want to ask, my girlfriend why why when sitting too long feels nauseous huh?
Hello, good afternoon Muhammad Alfa Rizqi Ilham ...
Besides nausea, does your friend also experience other complaints, such as dizziness, headaches, liquid bowel movements, fever, and so on?
Nausea is included in one of the symptoms that is often complained of by patients. Nausea can be triggered by a viral infection, indigestion, and so on. Often the cause of nausea is also unknown. Keep in mind that the appearance of a single symptom is not enough to be able to diagnose an illness. Nausea complaints are extensive complaints, which can be had by many conditions. Here are some conditions that can cause nausea complaints:
in a vehicle
eat too much
disorders of the stomach, such as inflammation of the stomach (gastritis / ulcer), rising gastric acid (GERD / Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease), ulcers / stomach ulcers, etc.
inflammation of the digestive tract, for example in diarrhea
the influence of drugs, such as some antibiotic drugs, pain relievers, and others
disorders of the bile and intestines
bacterial or viral infections, such as typhus, dengue fever, hepatitis
and so forth
Regarding the relationship with sitting too long, not directly related to nausea complaints, it is important to think that maybe your friend does have a health problem that has nothing to do with long sitting habits, but by chance these nausea complaints always arise when your friend sits for a long time. In addition, nausea complaints can also occur for example due to sitting in front of the computer for too long, causing computer vision syndrome, which causes headaches and triggers nausea.
It needs to be explored in more depth about the complaint experienced by your friend, and needs to be examined directly. Therefore, we suggest that your friend go to the doctor (more specifically to the doctor of internal medicine), in order to get certainty the cause of the complaint. The doctor may suggest additional tests such as blood tests to help make the diagnosis.
While waiting for your doctor's schedule, here are some suggestions we can give to your friends to help reduce nausea:
eat in moderation, not too much / full
avoid spicy foods, sour and soft drinks
avoid lying down right after eating
Avoid reading books or looking at gadgets while in a vehicle
manage stress wisely
do activities / exercise
That's it, hope it helps ..
