Thread: Anxiety?

  1. #1

    Default Anxiety?

    I have emetophobia and that makes me extremely anxious and I feel like throwing up 24/7. It gets 100 Times worse at night. Do you think I will throw up? Or if I知 sick? I have been feeling this bad for about 4 weeks. Like sometimes I知 convinced I will throw up and sometimes I知 about to. My stomach starts churning to. And I can feel bile in my throat. Is this just the anxiety or am I really sick and will throw up?! Why am I feeling like this?!??

    Probably psychosomatic. Are you not eating? Try taking tums if you're avoiding eating to settle down the stomach acid.

    Hypoglycemia causes nausea. So does ketosis. Are you losing weight? Small frequent snacking throughout the day helps a lot because the food will pass through your system very quickly so you won't have to worry about vomiting because he would be able to identify nausea very quickly and stop eating and if you need to

    Are you losing weight because you are not eating on purpose so that you don't vomit?

    Talk to your doctor. You might have functional dyspepsia. But also remember that stomach acid sitting can make you very nauseous. So it's good to have a little something in your stomach. Try not to eat a large meal. If you eat small amounts and snack on small amounts throughout the day it might help

    Definitely do most of your eating during the morning and early afternoon. I find personally that my anxiety over vomiting is more severe in the late evening hours right before I go to bed

    You feel like vomiting more at night? Like waking up from a dead sleep? Or right before you go to bed?

    Functional dyspepsia is a possibility. Or an ulcer, but usually eating makes stomach ulcers feel better. If you're not eating a lot of carbs, being in ketosis can make you feel nauseous. Do you have any other symptoms?

    I have to say that it sounds like you are very dehydrated. And if you don't have a lot of food in your stomach, that acid is going to sit there and gurgle and make you feel sick. And my even come up and burn your esophagus.

    I'm sure the doctor will do some blood work. They will be able to tell if you are dehydrated based on your blood work
