Nausea can be a debilitating symptom that accompanies IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome. Researchers have tried to pinpoint the causes, but the exact reasons it occurs are elusive. Nausea can be persistent and difficult for your doctor to treat.

Research suggests that nausea might be the result of pain associated with IBS. Constipation may also contribute to nausea. Many people report relief after having a bowel movement.

Food sensitivity or allergy is a consideration for anyone suffering from IBS. You may learn that specific foods or beverages trigger feelings of nausea. Overindulgence in alcohol and the use of certain medications can also cause ongoing bouts of nausea.

Viral or bacterial infection can prolong nausea, even after the illness has cleared up. Many IBS patients experience lingering problems after other symptoms disappear.

Flatulence and bloating, that often accompanies irritable bowel syndrome can produce nausea in anyone who experiences these symptoms for any reason.
