Nausea is that feeling as if the room is spinning and you may be sick and it is just awful.
Often this symptom can progressively worsen throughout the day, so be sure to drink lots of water and try to ensure as little movement as possible until it subsides.
If you can tolerate food, it likely isn't pancreatitis. This illness becomes terribly worse following a meal or food.
If your nausea subsides after eating some crackers or ginger ale, you likely do not have pancreatic issue. Pancreatitis only gets progressively worse by eating anything, even ginger ale and a cracker.
