What does nausea mean?
Nausea is a feeling of sickness in your stomach, as if you might vomit.
People can experience nausea from food that has upset their stomach, from the side effects of medications, or from a number of other conditions that affect the stomach, such as seasickness, motion sickness, morning sickness, carsickness, and anxiety.
Example: If you feel nausea coming on, try lying down and breathing through your nose.
Where does nausea come from?
The first records of the word nausea come from the 1500s. It is thought to derive from the Greek nausíā, meaning “seasickness,” from naûs, meaning “ship” (the same root is the basis of the word nautical).
Nausea makes you feel like you might throw up, but it doesn’t always end in throwing up. It’s a terrible feeling and it can be caused by very different things, including bad food, inner ear problems, and stress.
The figurative sense of nausea is not that commonly used. When someone experiences this kind of nausea, it’s more common to describe them as nauseated or to describe the thing that’s causing the figurative nausea as nauseating.
