Nausea, Irritable Bowel Syndrome Signs and Symptoms

Nausea is a very frequent symptom of various pathologies and a primary reason behind many gastroenterology consultations. Nausea is the term used to describe the extremely unpleasant sensation that suggests an imminent episode of vomiting. The sensation of nausea is loosely located in the epigastrium or throat and may or may not always culminate in vomiting. In cases of IBS, it is very likely that inflammation and distention of the gastrointestinal organs are responsible for generating the nervous impulses that create a sensation of nausea.
