Headaches and Nausea


Nausea and vomiting may occur with many types of headaches, especially migraine headaches, and may continue for 8 to 24 hours. Nausea and vomiting with a headache that doesn't get better or go away may be a sign of another serious medical problem or serious illness, such as:

  • Inflammation of the brain (encephalitis).
  • A pocket of infection in the brain (brain abscess).
  • Infection of the fluid and tissues that surround the brain and spinal cord (meningitis).
  • Bleeding within or around the brain.

In these cases, a nausea medication may be used to relieve symptoms.
