Liver problems can most definitely cause nausea. And there are all types of liver problems. Checking the enzymes is a pretty basic step to see if there's any kind of a problem.

Simple blood test = peace of mind. And maybe help in diagnosing your problems. Check, as advised here, for celiac as well.

Maybe gallbladder? Or more B12 in your diet? Also the drainage from sinuses from allergies will upset my stomach. I just eat pepsid. I drink lots of clear fluids and take Mucinex to help things drain.

Default thanks guys

i'm wondering if it's a cellulitis infection on my leg. i started feeling chilly saturday afternoon but had no fever at all at that time. just this afternoon at work i started to feel chilly and when i got home my temp was 99.4 and went up to 100.8. now it's down to 100.1.

i notice i have some red spots on my right calf and some of it is very red. that leg is vulnerable because i have varicose veins in the leg for which i was hospitalized in 2005 and i have swelling from metabolic syndrome. maybe i have been walking around with this infection for awhile which has been causing the nausea(but there wasn't any fever before today)? . it's slightly sore to the touch but there's no problem walking and there's no pain. also i had a stubborn lingering cough that seemed to come back today. jeez, i hope it's not strep related

tho i have a fever i still am hungry for dinner but don't want to eat too much in case i get worse i don't want to have too much in my stomach

i am visiting my doctor tomorrow to ask then to check out the leg. hopefully if it's cellulitis, it can be treated with oral antibiotics.

the day before (Friday) i had eggs for breakfast, a turkey burger for lunch, then i biked awhile and then had flounder for dinner. no problems on Friday.

isn't celiac inflammation of the digestive tract from the mouth all the way down? or is that Crohn's?
Celiac will effect your entire system and there are multiple symtoms of this, but it will reduce the villi in your small intestine and digesting things like dairy will be very difficult. The gold standard for diagnosis is to biopsy the small intestine through endoscopy but they can also do blood tests.

Get yourself allergy tested!

You know soy aggrivates your system already. I cannot eat soy either.

I also tested severe for beef and pork. Those are two allergies I NEVER would have suspected...ever! I also have moderate to mild allergies to dairy, watermellon, wheat, corn and shrimp. I cannot tolerate even cross contamination with beef and pork but I can eat the rest in small amounts without feeling completely awful.

The best and least invasive test for celiac is to STOP eating gluten containing foods for two months and see if you feel better. The first two weeks will be difficult but after that you may begin to feel the results and begin to actually absorb nutrients through your small intestine again.

Default i don't have

cellulitis in my leg(it's just stasis ulcers), my doctor thinks i just have one of the many viruses circulating. my fever is down to 97.7 but oddly, i still am chilly even with no fever. at least my appetite is better

as far as allergy testing, would i select an allergist specialist on my Oxford Freedom health plan?

I remember back in 1980 when i first went to college i received allergy injections from the student health center which my mom had set up for me

i don't know if the service was covered under her plan but i do remember feeling really good at the time from the shots

is this the same type of thing a modern day allergist would use?

Yes, definitely seek out an allergist. They have a greater knowledge of allergies and symptoms.

Typically they do a skin test first (my allergist does the 8 common food allergies and then asks you to check off foods you eat regularly). I had 30 skin tests done. I then had a blood test to confirm those that showed a positive skin test result. They take the results of each test to determine the severity of the allergy.

For food allergies, they do not give shots (that is for seasonal and environmental allergies). Typical treatment is just to omit those foods you react to from your diet.

I eliminated all of the food items and then tried adding them back in one by one to see what kind of reaction each of them produced. The pork and beef I could not tolerate at all. The others I could tolerate to some degree so I will still eat them occasionally.

Agree with the others to try eliminating some foods and see if that improves your symptoms. What you're describing could unfortunately be caused by so many different things--including anxiety and stress... your mind really can make you sick. I would also have my gallbladder checked up on. Some of the meals you described where you got nauseated--cheese ravioli, coffee, etc tend to be foods that irritate some people with gallbladder issues. It's also not unheard of to run a low-grade fever with either a virus or some gallbladder issues. Doesn't happen to everyone, but can happen.

I didn't read every word of every post but has the original poster had his ears and hearing and balance checked? Could be vertigo due to an inner ear thing?
