Nausea and vomiting are symptoms that have many possible causes. These include gastrointestinal infections, e.g. gastroenteritis, food-poisoning, reflux of the stomach contents, i.e. gastroesophageal reflux, a migraine headache, motion sickness and medicines. Almost any medicine can cause nausea and vomiting. Overuse of alcohol and abuse of drugs may also cause acute symptoms. Early pregnancy is often associated with morning sickness and must be considered in every woman of childbearing age.
