How To Stop Nausea

Another trick to stopping nausea is to simply distract yourself. The less you focus on the feeling of sickness, the better you may feel. It is important if your feeling of nausea lasts for longer than a few days, or is recurring, that you visit a GP. This is to ensure the sickness isn’t being caused by underlying health problems.
If you feel your nausea worsen you can try and avoid being sick by resting in a sitting position. Avoid moving too much as this may lead to being sick. Also try to avoid sitting in a car for a long period of time as the motion can cause sickness.
If you experience nausea as well as a tight or heavy chest, pain spreading across your torso or shortness of breath contact 999 immediately. These are all common symptoms of a heart attack.

‘Acupressure’ is another trick to try to alleviate morning sickness. This involves placing a special band on your wrist or forearm to create a pressure that relieves nausea. Usually, women feel better after around 12 weeks of pregnancy as hormone changes aren’t as severe.

How to Avoid Severe Nausea
