nausea, faint
Dear Doc

Yesterday I was feeling really really ill. Eventually had to go home.
I was feeling extrememly nauseaus and dizzy and very faint.
It would come and go. It lasted almost all day long.
I would run to the bathroom feeling like i was about to vomit
but nothing happened. I was very weak.
I would then feel better for about 5 minutes and it would happen again. This has now happened about 3 times on different occasions.
What could this be? Im 34 years old

Your urgent assistance would be highly appreciated.

Thank you

Kind Regards

Dear Sara,
Please go to a GP for a good physical examination, you could have low blood pressure or problems with your bloodsugar or even a bladder infection. Some middle ear diseases also cause a dizziness that feels as if the world is turning around you and goes with extreme nausea and vomiting.
