Nausea when lying on left side
Top 3 signs your vertigo is bppv (benign paroxysmal
I’m not sure why, but this happens to me as well, and just on my left hand. It would be helpful to know that this never happened to me before I got pregnant, because it was much worse when I was pregnant, and now that I’m not pregnant, it only happens once in a while.
I thought it was some sort of “bodies aren’t symmetrical” scenario, where the crowding in my abdomen and the things being crunched while I’m on my left side is causing me intense pain. But I don’t know anything more than you do; all I wanted to do was add this piece of details. I hope you’re able to work it out! posted by potrzebie on August 8, 2020 at 10:14 PM
To alleviate acid reflux, people with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) often sleep on their left side. The tops of our stomachs aren’t symmetrical left-right at all. posted by clew on August 8, 2020 at 10:38 PM [4 of my personal favorites]
Not to threadsit, but clew, just as an FYI, I’d seen that before, and it’s exactly the opposite for me: right side is good, left side is bad in this situation.

Epley maneuver for vertigo: ez step-by-step (right vs. left
Physically and emotionally, pregnancy is an exciting and demanding time. Exhilaration, anxiety, and depression, as well as sensations like body aches, leg cramps, and nausea, can all interfere with getting a good night’s sleep. Almost every pregnant woman has difficulty sleeping at some stage during her pregnancy, so you’re not alone if you’re having trouble sleeping.
If nausea keeps you awake at night, have a bland snack before bedtime, such as crackers or apple slices. Before you go to bed, take a light bite to calm your stomach. If morning sickness is a concern, keep some snacks on your bedside table so you can grab a fast bite — and maybe even a few more minutes to snooze — before getting up for the day.
Before taking any natural supplements or remedies, speak to your doctor if you think you may need medicine to control your nausea. Natural remedies can be even more effective than pills. Acupressure, which is also taught in birth classes, and ginger may also be effective natural anti-nausea remedies. Managing nausea, regardless of the treatment, will make it easier to sleep through the night.
Headaches, nausea, vertigo helped with gonstead
When you’re sick or don’t feel right, having plenty of rest will help you heal much more quickly. However, depending on the condition, sleeping while sick can be a challenging activity. Especially if you have a runny nose, a headache, or, worse yet, a stomach bug. However, it turns out that sleeping in those positions will help you control your symptoms and keep them from getting worse. When you’re sick and don’t feel good, here’s a list of the best sleeping positions.
Raise your head while sleeping: Colds and flu both cause a buildup of pressure in the sinuses, which may result in facial discomfort. Gravity, fortunately, is on your side in this case. Making your head higher than your body is what it takes to alleviate sinus pressure.
The simplest way to do this is to prop yourself up in bed by creating a wedge with a few pillows. The elevation should allow phlegm secretions to drain, making it easier to breathe and sleep.
If you often vomit, sleep on your side with your head lifted. If you throw up while sleeping, sleeping in this position will prevent you from vomiting on your own vomit (which not only sounds gross but is also extremely dangerous).
Left-sided pain under your rib cage
I, too, have a similar problem. The only difference is that my nausea is relieved only when I’m lying down. When I move to a lateral position, I also get severe vertigo, which is followed by a rise in respiration and diaphoresis. I was playing football the other day when I fell and hit my head on the deck, but I didn’t notice anything wrong and continued playing.
After a head injury, post traumatic vertigo may occur, and the labrynth, or inner ear, is the organ that is affected.
This is where the fluids that keep the balance are stored.
The best course of action will be to seek advice and treatment from an ENT physician.
I’ll add my two cents because it appears that the MD folks are perplexed by the ‘left side’ problem. I have persistent motion sickness and spend the bulk of my time ‘in motion’ vomiting. If I’m feeling queasy but haven’t puked yet, lying on my left side causes me to puke almost instantly. It’s infinitely worse than any other case. What’s my theory? Your stomach is bursting! It won’t help to put your stomach under the rest of your guts if you already have a health issue with it 🙂 So, no diagnosis or hypothesis for the underlying cause, but I just wanted to let you know that the ‘left side’ thing isn’t unusual to me, and that I, too, have this symptom (though only when I’m already sick). Get well fast!
