Do back injuries cause nausea?

Posted by Ryman @ryman, Jul 22 6:21pm

I have a back injury, waiting for an xray to determine just what. I have a lot of nausea and am wondering if it is from the injury. I have been receiving therapy, including cow-cat yoga and wonder if that could cause the nausea. I have an apt with an orthopedic doctor Aug 6 and hope to have the xray by then. Thanks.

@ryman – Welcome to Connect! May I ask what kind of back injury you have? I don’t know if there is a connection between the injury and nausea. It is possible, however, to develop nausea from the pain associated with the injury. Do you take any medication for the pain, such as Ibuprofen that can cause GI upset?
Until your doctor visit try to eat a light, easily digested diet and stay hydrated.
Please let us know how your visit went!

I am not sure what the injury is, maybe a muscle or maybe a crushed disc which I have had before. I am waiting to get an xray. But lately I have a great deal of nausea and burping. I am taking therapy and the exercises are a little strenuous, so I wonder if they could be causing the nausea. When I had my pacemaker put in it was causing problems with the vagus nerve and that caused a lot of nausea and vomiting. Just wondering. Thanks.

Pain anywhere in my experience can cause nausea. So far mid and lower back pain have not except with sudden onset, but neck pain has.. but usually along with a headache. I know chest pain can cause nausea which I have without heart problems. A friend of my husband had only the symptoms of nausea and vomiting and was having a heart attack. Nsaids can cause the nausea.. burping may come with it.

@ryman As @fourof5zs commented, I think if you are in a lot of pain that can cause nausea, it definitely does for me. I hope you get to the root of the back pain quickly.
