A friend told me once that motion sickness pills help. If you are willing to take medicines, of course.

Other than that, I have to go with the soda pop and saltines trick. As little kids we used to get coke and pretzels if we felt nauseous.

I had no ginger tea, so I put boiling water on ginger powder in some other tea. No help. When I eat, it goes away, but comes back REAL quick. What about chewing gum (mint) kind?

Thanks for the suggestions, I really don't want to try meds.

Yuck. Hungry, but nauseas, and now I think I have a sinus headace. Maybe I'm just getting sick? Oh well, it's not like it happens frequently.

what about reflexology? apply pressure to the wrist. just stick your thumb down onto the centre of your wrist like a half inch or so below the heel of your hand and hold it down for a couple minutes.

and the new girl at work who studied reflexology told me yesterday that if you apply pressure to the sides of the wrist instead it helps cramps and problems in the lower part of the abdomen rather than the stomach.

Don't chew gum when you're stomach sick; it'll only make it worse.

Have some clear vegetable soups and dry toast and crackers for a couple days, until it clears up.

LadyFaile,

I've never, ever had that work. During a nasty recovery from oral surgery, the medications were making me violently nausous (but I couldn't throw up, as it was extremely dangerous at the time). Due to my allergy to morphine, they had me pumped on 3 different pain killers at one time, as well as gravol to control the vomitting. I still had horrid waves of nausea and I remember holding on to my wrist almost to the point of cutting off circulation, trying to get it to work LOL
