Coming to ats for medical advise isn't a very good idea. If I'd have listened to the " medical wisdom" of ATS id be dead years ago. I have chronic nausea because I have a brain tumour. The only way I deal with it is anti sickness medication and lots of sleep. It could be litterally anything, I imagine if she has been Assessed by a Dr a brain tumour will have been checked for. Get it sorted out and make sure she is honest about any other symptoms, sometimes we hide other symptoms from our Drs out of fear of what it could be. You have to make sure Dr is aware of all symptoms

One of the main reasons why lemon is so effective against nausea is because it helps in neutralizing possible stomach acids that may be causing your feelings of nausea. Lemon ultimately balances the pH levels of the body.
1.Get a lemon and cut it in half.
2. From one of the halves of the lemon, get the juice and place it in a bowl.
3.Mix in half teaspoon of salt.
4.Before drinking this mixture, start to breathe in the fumes of the lemon juice and salt mixed together.
5.Drink this slowly.

It wouldn't surprise me if the urge to vomit is caused by inflammation in the brain, especially in light of her diagnosis of myalgic encephalomyelitis. In any event it wouldn't hurt to get some natural anti-inflammatories into system via food. Honey is anti-inflammatory and may be easy to administer because she has to eat something. You can put a little in anything she drinks, yogurt etc…. It also has a lot of B6 which is good for helping the nervous system make the chemicals it needs. B vitamins are good for the nerves in general. M.E. falls under CFS which is probably the medical world's way of saying 'we have no clue'. I'd look at B 12 as well, because persons who take a lot of acid reflux drugs are often deficient. If the nerves are stressed, everything is compromised. This may be a longstanding deficiency. A good B complex couldn't hurt but you can over do B vitamins. I wouldn't bombard her with huge doses, especially of the pyridoxine (B 6), for example. Small changes. I'd at least make sure she is getting all the vitamins she needs.
Does she have headaches, as her DX would indicate? I read that headaches are basically a seizure of the brain. A lot of what goes wrong with digestion (vomiting/IBS etc...) is simple brain seizures, nerves not being allowed to function as they should. I am not a doctor but I am not handing out prescriptions of controlled drugs either. I have come to believe that food is key to health. There are a lot of foods that we should not be taking. Like most of what you see when you enter a big store...
