Nausea after a motorcycle accident can occur for a number of reasons. If you experience nausea and have been involved in a motorcycle or car accident, seek immediate medical attention. Feeling sick to your stomach can be a sign of a traumatic brain injury. It can also mean that there is internal bleeding. And sometimes, nausea is just that and does not point to a greater problem.

When a motorcycle accident occurs, your body undergoes an extreme jolt. Whether you strike the pavement or collide with a vehicle, the shock the body receives is severe. Sometimes serious injury is obvious right away. Other times, especially because there is a tremendous adrenaline rush that can cause you to overlook pain, more serious injuries are not as readily apparent. In some cases, nausea and vomiting may be one of the main indicators that something significant is wrong.
Traumatic brain injury or concussion occur frequently after a motorcycle accident. Brain injury has many symptoms including confusion, headache, nausea and vomiting, distorted sensations, or sleepiness. If you have been involved in a car accident or motorcycle accident and have any signs of concussion, seek immediate medical attention. Emergency room doctors and paramedics will recognize the signs of traumatic brain injury and take action, if necessary.

Visit a doctor after a motorcycle accident if you experience any pain, discomfort, or altered sensations.

Beyond the physical injuries that can cause nausea, post traumatic stress disorder and anxiety can also make you feel sick to your stomach.
