How Do You Deal With Nausea?!?!

How Do You Deal With Nausea?!?!

I haven't yet been diagnosed, waiting on an appointment for Mirena coil. First went to GP 4 years ago with pain in my right side which I thought might be ovarian cyst but as I also had GI symptoms (diarrhoea, nausea) was referred to gastroenterologist.
