I am perpetually nauseous. At first I thought I had some kind of mild stomach virus, but it's been going on for over a month now. My diet has been pretty crummy recently, which may be a factor. Part of the problem is that the nausea dissipates while I'm eating, but returns again shortly after, so I feel like I'm eating constantly to keep it at bay.

So, what could be causing this constant low-level nausea? Is it something I should worry about? Ideas on how to make it go away? I'm tired of feeling like I have morning sickness when I'm not even pregnant.

You might try increasing your magnesium. After I did this, my tendency toward carsickness disappeared!

My youngest son and I have been like this for at least three (I think more) weeks. We have just begun seeing improvement this week, possibly because of homeopathy.

Children deserve the respect of puzzling it out.

I am burpy. Where exactly is my liver? I did have some pretty severe pain yesterday in my belly on the upper right side. I couldn't even stand up straight for over an hour. Then it went away.

No way am I pregnant ~ DH has been out of town since my last period!

gallbladder is right side, so is kidney (a low level UTI can also cause nausea; get some test strips at a pharmacy and rule it out).

That type of intense upper, right side pain sounds like gall bladder problems to me. You should have blood tests done that test your liver enzymes and then have an ultrasound of your gall bladder and upper abdomen. Hope you're feeling better soon.
