What are the causes of nausea and retch
1. Pharyngeal reflex
Pharyngeal reflex is a physiological response innate to human beings, mainly to prevent foreign bodies from entering the body. When something irritates the throat, the pharyngeal reflex is triggered, often manifested as nausea, retching or even vomiting. Part of the morning nausea and retching caused by brushing teeth is one of the manifestations of pharyngeal reflex.
2. Chronic pharyngitis
Chronic pharyngitis patients may have nausea and retch symptoms when brushing teeth, mainly because the pharyngeal mucosa of patients is stimulated by inflammation for a long time, and the posterior pharyngeal wall often has a thicker secretion, so they are more likely to be stimulated when brushing teeth.
