    I've been making tremendous strides with my running these last couple of days (no pun intended). I'm setting record times for myself and it's the best feeling ever! But not all the feelings are great...

    These last few times, I've been getting nauseous. Sometimes near the end of the run or immediately after, or even an hour or two later. It happened today. Admittedly, today was the case that I sort of brought it on myself because I ate a quick sandwich less than an hour before I began. (I didn't want to wait, it was beginning to get dark, and I don't care for running outside after dark.) But the other times, I've given myself plenty of time to let whatever food digest and whatnot.

    I don't think my running speed is an issue. I'm at a fair jogging pace of ~5 miles per hour.

    I've been taking Pepto Bismol after the nausea comes on and that helps treat it. But any advice to help stop the nausea from happening in the first place?

    Viel Danken! icon_smile.gif

    Are you taking in enough electrolytes? Possibly consuming too much water too fast?

    What about having some saltines and a Canada Dry afterwards to calm/sooth your tummy?

    No pun intended maybe, but definatley one taken! heheh

    You def shouldn't get into the peptamol bismol rountine tho... it's not great for your stomache.

    Do a cool down run after youre done too, don't just stop suddenly. That could help.

    You got me really thinking on this sense it occurs hours after.

    There's a difference between nausea/stomach related and nausea/dizziness.

    -Quick at home Test:

    Next time you get nauseous hold your hand still about 12' in front of your face. Move your head back and forth about 3x/sec. If you can't focus on your fingertips it's likely that it's electrolyte imbalance.

    -The same reflex goes when we drink alcohol; our K+ and Na+ (along with a few others) goes out of balance in the vestibular system.
