  1. I've been worried sick for the past 2 months. Started off with daily reflux and indigestion which started out of nowhere! Also dull mid/upper left back pain. Had labs done and showed slightly elevated lipase level. CT and ultrasound of abdomen showed normal pancreas and gallbladder. I've lost 7 lbs in 2 weeks and now have greasy,loose oily stools. So convinced my doctors and the scans are missing something. I have SO many signs of pan can 😞
  2. It's tricky when agoraphobia is such a vague term, and everyone experiences it a different way, but for me the worst part is the physical sickness. I've read a lot of other people's experiences but haven't come across many that I really relate to when it comes to nausea. When I try to go out and the panic starts, it feels like I'm going to vomit. I don't really get the fast heart rate or feeling like I'm dying, for me its all very literal, like I'm going to throw up and be stuck in either the discomfort or embarressment. Sometimes it feels like the nausea will last forever. And I don't know if this is true or my illness but I feel like if I could get the nausea under control then the anxiety wouldn't be so bad? I'm probably talking to a void here but is anyone else experiencing this or feel the same as me?

    I am freaking out and I guess I just need some assurance. I feel awful!! Have not been here in a while. And today out of no where here come all these symptoms. Has anyone felt these all at the same time. If so. How do you cope with this. Feeling really low
  4. So I've been dealing with nausea after I quit birth control pills three months ago. I'm not completely sure if this is the cause, but it seems like the nausea starts around ovulation and ends after my period. Then I have only one week where I don't feel the nausea. So I think this might be a pms symptom or something? Have any of you got worsening anxiety after going off birth control? I really don't want to go back on birth control (as I quit them because of my anxiety for blod clots). The nausea is mild I guess, since I can function and I never throw up. The nausea feels kind of like hunger even though I'm not hungry, and it gets a little better after eating, but it will quickly come back. At this point I'm not sure if the nausea comes because I'm expecting it and feel anxious about it. I also have IBS which could be causing it I guess? It also seems like I get nausea the minute I think about it, or the minute someone else tells me about someone getting the stomach flu. Also, my lifestyle hasn't been great the last months, I go to bed late, get up late, eat crap, and have irregular meals. I went to the doctor and got a lot of blood work done. They're checking for deficiencies. Haven't got the answers yet, so I'm just going around worried. I just don't know what to do with this. Nausea makes me feel so depressed and unmotivated. I'm scared of it being something serious, like a brain tumor or stomach disorder or diabetes. I can't continue living with nausea forever, I'll go crazy. Have any of you experienced anything similar, and do you have any tips on how to deal with this? I'm going crazy
  5. Hi guys. I'm an 18 year old girl who has been dealing with constant daily nausea since last August. It all started with a stomach bug. I hadnt actually thrown up in years, but then i came down with one. I was sick for three days, and then started to feel normal again. However, about a week later i was sitting in a cafe with my mom and started to feel sort of anxious? I then felt a wave of nausea, and thought i was going to be sick. Well basically, since that day, the nausea has not left me. It used to keep me up all night. I dont even get sick, i just dry heave when its a t its very worst. While it has eased ever so slightly since then, i do still have it daily and its ALWAYS on my mind. I cant stop thinking about it, and i only forget when im completely occupied. Ive been to the doctor twice and he said my blood tests were very good so theres nothing wrong with me. My family dont understand and especially my mum, she really cant stand it at all it makes her furious when i talk about it. I also want to mention that this year, since last august, ive been preparing for a very important set of exams (extremely important) and my mum thinks that when the exams are over, this nausea will go away. Sorry this post is so long, i just really need advice as i am so fed up and frightened about whats going on. Thank you.
  6. I am SO frustrated! I thought I was OVER this. My last "panic/anxiety attack" prior to the one I experienced two weeks ago, was nearly SIX YEARS AGO! I thought I was OVER this... But then it hit again earlier this month. The nausea was so intense and horrifying, I could not walk and had to call an ambulance. (I also have Crohn's Disease... so, I was unsure if the nausea was from the Crohn's or anxiety... it turns out that anxiety was the cause.) Is there anyone else here who ONLY gets that one symptom - devastating, debilitating nausea - when in a panic/anxiety attack? I have done talk therapy for years... EMDR... CBT... read countless self-help books... tried many, many antidepressants. I am currently taking Cymbalta and Klonopin (as needed - which is rarely). In the past, I have tried... Prozac, Celexa, Lexapro, Wellbutrin, Paxil, and others. I've listened to Lucinda Bassett tapes, ordered other online programs. NOTHING IS WORKING! Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
  7. Hi everyone, does anyone else have a symptom of extreme nausea or vomiting triggered by anxiety? Long story short, I was diagnosed with GAD with Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome last summer. Everytime I would get anxious about something, which was all the time, I would either get extremely nauseous (if the threat wasn't perceived high) or just begun vomiting for hours non-stop. I found and began yoga that summer after months of depression, hopelessness, extreme loss of weight & appetite, insomnia, poor concentration, and panic attacks often on top of the constant vomiting. My GP and I couldn't find a medication that I could keep down, and of course, all the physical exams came back normal. Yoga, mindfulness and finding a part time job at a mental health organization for severe mental illness helped me along in my recovery, and months later, I now work full time, teach yoga once a week, and vomit only once every 2 weeks or so, and it stops after one "session" instead of hours, so I can usually get on with my day (a few breath mints later). Until a few weeks ago. Stress is up at work I know, and the holidays is definitely triggering past events. I've been able to handle my symptoms pretty well in the past year, but when I start vomiting, I can't stop feeling like crap, I can't stop worrying if I'll puke again because my body is in such nauseous pain. The extreme nausea makes me want to puke to get the pain over with, but now the nausea and vomiting won't go away. The vomiting has started disrupting my life again, and I'm now starting to get feelings of hopelessness that this anxious vomiting is going to stop me from doing everything I love to do (I've puked in the middle of me teaching yoga classes... Not very impressive to the boss). anyway that wasn't so short so long story long, I want to kick this in the butt. I just don't know how to stop something so physical with my brain. Help?
  8. My name’s Holly and I have been dealing with anxiety for 11 years now. Basically the only uncomfortable sensation that I experience is nausea, which has developed into a fear of throwing up/vomiting. This fear is obviously a result of me throwing up during certain panic attacks or at least my specific “version” of a panic attack. I've found most people have panic attacks where they cannot breathe, think there going to die, have a heart attack ect. I don't get that, I know I won't die or suffocate, I know anxiety too well, its just the intense nausea that overwhelms me and I cannot control. I have only ever experienced extreme nausea which has in some cases resulted in me throwing up. Over the 11 years it has only gotten to that bad of a state on a small number of occasions, probably under 20. It is usualy just bad gagging and dry heaving, which is as bad as vomitting for me. I might aswell always be vomitting! With me personally, it doesn’t need to get to the stage where I physically throw up in order for anxiety to have an effect on me, and for me to therefore fear it in the future. Don’t get me wrong, I have also experienced sensations such as an accelerated heartbeat, sweating, shaking, and tingling, but I do not fear them like I do with throwing up around people. When I was first going through anxiety the nausea was especially bad, like two straight weeks of not being able to keep anything down. As a result, I developed a bit of a phobia in relation to food which I still have to this day, but it has now extended to just being around people, which is a lot more concerning. I’m much more anxious around people in comparison to just being alone, because of the social embarrassment that throwing up might cause and therefore fear what people might think of me. I’m becoming more of a recluse/prefer to do things on my own and don’t really enjoy being around people. With me it’s the social embarrassment and the fear of what people might think that is far greater and outweighs the act itself. I don’t fear throwing up specifically, which is why it’s never really an issue when I’m on my own. If I lose my concentration for just a second or am not in the right mindset, then things can get out of control very quickly. My first anxiety/panic episodes was when I was about 14/15, where when I was eating at a family friends house and my on/off boyfriend at the time turned up to see someone who was in the house at that time. I remember seeing him and having an overwhelming feeling of panic and nausea, I pushed my plate away , started sweating and ran to throw up, like completely out of the blue, i had never felt this or had any issue with food/nausea before this. After that first episode, this happened a few more times with food and him, but I didn't even know what anxiety was back then, so just thought I had food poisoning or something. Cut a long story short, it slowly got worse over the next few years and seemed to developed into mainly involving food/eating. I constantly felt nausea, anxiety, weird about eating, food making me feel sick and then that turnt into social issues, which is what is ruining my life today. I now feel unable to to eat with people, get anxious if I have to, cant always eat, want to run away and eat Alone ect. In the early stages, i got so anxious about food that I stopped eating really, i ate bananas and toast and stopped leaving my house much. Yet I want to eat so badly, I hate losing weight, not eating really gets me down. After the intial first years, I managed to go off to uni still, although it was very tough, but I got through it, managed to hide most of my issues from people and graduated ect. But the eating thing is still major for me, i can only eat around few close people and literally have a small panic attack if I'm ever put in a situation where I have tho eat with anyone else, I just cannot do it, I immediately start gagging and dry heaving. Which also means no cannot eat out at all, restaurants terrify me. Eating is the worst area for me, but is by no means the only area. I now struggle with most social situations, any that involve people really, but specially where I feel I may be trapped in a sense in say a conversation with someone, bump into someone I know and have to conversate, meetings, especially one to one, hospital appointments, travelling, nights/days out, anyany social really. Yet I can go about my day alone, in and out of shops etc as I need to fairly normally, but if I have to go with someone, its causes complete nausea and anxiety. Its so annoying and frustrating, as I am actually a naturally outgoing confident and wild kinda fearless person, until this. Its soo against my real character! It seems any situation where I feel 'trapped' and unable to just leave/hide if I need to, gets me going. It can be as simple as a conversation with someone, to being in a lift/plane ect. But like I said, the sensation is always nausea, where when its bad I'm gagging and dry heaving and in extreme cases I vomit. But the nausea is killing me and making me hide away and I hate it! Its so embarrassing! Although I remember the first times I had this sort of feeling when I was 14/15, I still can't work out why that actually happened or what the trigger really was. I had a pretty bad childhood, was always down and unstable at home, mum, wasn't around like she should have been and my dad was and still is a bad alcoholic, yet I have a great relationship with him x so I guess the trauma of my childhood could have had an impact? Yet I don't really feel that way, it doesn't bother me in an anxious way, I was still always confident and well balanced thru all of that and dont consider that to have caused such strange issues today, but who knows. I would just realy like to chat to others about this. I have seen a few psychologists in my time but nothing ever seems to work. Does anyone else go through this? With the intense nausea? Anyone got any tips to help? Id like to try some decent anti nausea tablets for the times when i really need it, any suggestions on some? Would be great to chat to peope :-) Many Thanks, Holly
