ive sufferd from migraines since i was teenager, but not really sufferd from nausea just at night before

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK. This could be from your period but if you haven't had it before with your period it might not be. I worry a bit about a severe headache with nausea if that's not usual for someone, but this still might just be the onset of the flu. If it's the flu, zinc lozenges and vitamin C along with rest will help a lot but since I can't examine you I strongly suggest that you have a doctor take a look here. My only concern is it might be meningitis (but without a fever that isn't likely) or it could be a bleeding in your brain so if the headache comes back I'd get an MRI of your brain.

im scared go sleep incase im sick, anything do to avoid it? do try to be sick but didnt happen should i force it so it over with?


Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
You can try some tea and toast for now and if you have access to Dramamine that could help. Don't try to force yourself to vomit and if you go to bed, put pillows under your head in case you do vomit after you fall asleep
