Daily nausea may be caused by a wide range of illnesses and conditions. Among the most frequent causes of daily nausea are morning sickness, indigestion, and side effects of medication. In some cases, nausea may be caused by a chronic condition that affects the digestive tract. For example, a person may develop chronic nausea in relation to a peptic ulcer, which is a hole in the lining of either the stomach, the tube through which food passes to the stomach, or the small intestine.

For women, one of the most common causes of daily nausea is morning sickness. This condition is marked by nausea, and often vomiting, that occurs during pregnancy. It is most likely to occur during the first few months of pregnancy and may affect a pregnant woman at any time of the day, despite being called morning sickness. Some women find their nausea is worse when they haven’t eaten for a while, upon getting out of bed in the morning, when they consume large meals, and when they are exposed to certain smells. Morning sickness may also be caused by hormonal changes that are common during pregnancy.

Indigestion is also among the most common causes of nausea. Essentially, indigestion just means an upset stomach, and an individual may develop it after eating too slowly or too quickly. Sometimes a person may also develop it because he has eaten something that irritates his stomach. In some cases, a person who has indigestion may also have heartburn, which occurs when stomach acids move up from the stomach and into the esophagus, which is the tube through which food enters the stomach. Heartburn may cause nausea as well.

Medication side effects are also among the most common causes of nausea. There are many types of oral medication, prescription and over the counter, that are known to cause nausea in some people. If a person takes a medication on an empty stomach, he may be more likely to suffer from nausea as a side effect of medication. Some people, however, are just sensitive to medication and may experience nausea even if they take their medication on a full stomach.

Sometimes a chronic condition will be at the root of daily nausea, especially when the medical condition affects the gastrointestinal tract. For example, a peptic ulcer, which is a hole in the lining of a person’s stomach or esophagus, may cause nausea on a daily basis. A person with this condition may even have a hole in the lining of his small intestine. While some people may believe peptic ulcers are caused by stress or spicy foods, this is a misconception. Bacteria cause peptic ulcers in most cases, but stress can contribute to their development.

I don't know why but antibiotics give me nausea as a side effect. The stronger the antibiotic and the longer the treatment, the worse the nausea seems to be.

Last year, I had to take heavy doses of antibiotics for a month for a nasty stomach infection. I had daily nausea and bloating during my treatment and for a few weeks afterward. It was awful. I think many medications can cause chronic nausea.

@ysmina-- You need to see your ear, nose and throat specialist about your symptoms. It sounds like you have a form of vertigo or motion sickness and yes, flights can trigger this. The changes in air pressure during a flight can change the pressure in your inner ear. And this can cause nausea and dizziness. I think things will go back to normal for you within the next week, but if it doesn't, see your doctor.

I also have a problem with inner ear pressure. After ear infections and flights, I experience nausea as well. It goes away with time, but it can be upsetting. Try ginger candies, they're great for nausea. And the next time you take a flight, chew gum and use a nasal saline spray during the flight to keep your ear pressure normal.

I was absolutely fine one week ago. Ever since my flight back from a trip, I've had slight nausea daily since my return. It worsens when I'm in the car and I've actually vomited a few times. I can't figure out what's wrong. Could it be related to flying? Has anyone experienced something like this?
