Our urgent care providers are knowledgeable at assessing and treating nausea in Novi MI and are looking forward to taking care of you. They can also determine when you need more advanced care with a specialist or at the emergency department.
Nausea is a feeling of uneasiness in the stomach that often occurs before vomiting. Vomiting is the forced emptying of the stomach’s contents through the mouth. While nausea and vomiting are not diseases, they may be symptoms of numerous health conditions.
Treatment for Nausea/Vomiting/Diarrhea
In mild cases, these symptoms can often be treated at home. Eating small, bland meals throughout the day, avoiding hard-to-digest foods, staying hydrated with small amounts of clear liquids, and resting in a sitting position can all help to lessen symptoms. If a patient is still struggling with symptoms we can help by prescribing medications to help with nausea and vomiting. We also have IV hydration
If you are experiencing the following symptoms, seek medical attention ASAP:
- If home treatment is not effective or you are dehydrated
- If vomiting or diarrhea has lasted more than 24 hours
- There is blood in vomit or stool
- A severe headache or stiff neck
- Lethargy or confusion
