nausea

nausea (n.) early 15c., vomiting, from L. nausea "seasickness," from Ionic Gk. nausia (Attic nautia) "seasickness, nausea, disgust," lit. "ship-sickness," from naus "ship" (see NAVAL (Cf. naval)). Despite its etymology, the word in English seems never to have been restricted to seasickness.
