Citrus to help with Nausea?!?!

I've had all day nausea for 1.5 weeks (feels like 5 weeks) now. No vomiting, yet. Food aversions are terrible. I can't find anything to eat. I've lost about 3 lbs. in the past 1.5 weeks. And that was with me mostly laying on the couch. I never feel hungry, just nauseous.
So, two days ago, I felt pretty good in the afternoon. Got a ton accomplished. I even made some shepherds pie. I ate a serving when it was done and another for dinner. First thing of substance that I've eaten. Then after dinner, the nausea returned. I started googling things about morning sickness and I came across an article about using citrus fruit to combat morning sickness. It dawned on me. My daughter and I both ate an orange after lunch on that day!!
Well, tonight, I went to the store and bought a huge bag or oranges. I ate one around 7:30pm and three hours later. I feel NORMAL. I'm going to be eating them tomorrow, along with sipping lemon water and see how it goes. I'll report back. God, I pray the oranges are working!
***I've been drinking orange juice but it hasn't had the effect of eating an orange.
