Why do you get nauseous?

Sometimes, the reasons for nausea can be illness or medication. Nausea can also be the result of your body rejecting certain "toxins" in your body, like high levels of alcohol.

Fibromyalgia sufferers may experience nausea for a variety of different reasons. In order to experience relief from this nausea, it is necessary to find a reason behind it.

Problems with Disequilibrium

Many fibromyalgia sufferers experience imbalances in their equilibriums. Your body balances itself by maintaining an appropriate equilibrium, which is found in the inner ear. If for some reason this equilibrium falls out of balance, it can cause you to feel dizzy, lightheaded, and nauseous.

Weak Eye Muscles

Fibromyalgia can cause the muscles that allow your eyes to move to become weak. As a result, you may feel nauseated whenever you try to look out of a car window, read a book, or participate in any other activity that requires you to follow something with your eyes.


More than 50% of people with fibromyalgia suffer from chronic headaches and migraines. Migraines are severe headaches caused by constriction of the arteries and vessels in the head and neck.

Migraines can last for days and are often accompanied by nausea and vomiting because of constriction of certain nerves in the back of the head.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

 Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common complaint amongst those with fibromyalgia. IBS causes your lower intestine to become extremely sensitive to muscle contractions.

As a result, severe bouts with diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and constipation often occur. Sometimes, the nausea experienced with fibromyalgia can be the result of these symptoms.

Neurally Mediated Hypotension

Many of those with fibromyalgia suffer from neurally mediated hypotension. Neurally mediated hypotension occurs after suddenly standing up after lying down or sitting down for an extended period.

As you get up, your blood pressure drops suddenly, causing extreme dizziness, sweating, heart palpitations, and nausea.
