  • a lot of things. Stress can manifest with physical symptoms like nausea. Sometimes ulcers (at least for me, thats how I can tell I've got one) umm...pms sometimes, maybe theres something you eat or drink everyday that has gone bad and you just haven't realized it yet. Being too hot can make you nauseas. Theres like a zillion things!!

  • the heat can make you sick to your stomach..or eating foods that you are not used to.

  • It could be your gallbladder. That's how I felt when mine first started getting bad. If it is your gallbladder, certain things you eat can trigger the sickness. Pay attention to what you eat before the nausea kicks in.

  • Stress , just as everyone else has stated . I was nauseas for 6 months, and had biopsies and finally was tested for gluten allergy. Since cutting it out of my diet the nausea has subsided.
