Fear of vomiting in public

Common Questions and Answers about Fear of vomiting in public


Avatar m tn Every time especially if i am in public or at work i just think of utterly embarrassing myself by freaking out so much and vomiting everywhere. Everyone looking at me, having no where to hide, getting it in my hair, choking on it. Dry reaching is the worst possible feeling i could ever imagine... Feeling like your eyeballs are about to pop... Your stomach acid is gagging up your throat. Ugh i just cant handle it all. even hearing the noise i get a huge freight and run away.
Avatar f tn I don't know what to do and I am afraid to see a gastroenterologist within the week due to unexpected tests and fear I would need to stay in LA. I sure hope the rest of you find a relief because I am searching just as hard! I never take pain pills but I just took that Oxycodone and IBS pill, I found over the counter, and my naseua med hoping the dr was right and this will help!
Avatar f tn I am 46 years old female. I have been experiencing fear of swallowing food for the last 10 years now. I have talked to three different doctors and they are of no help. I decided to serf the net to see if I can find people with similar problem. Yes, there are a lot of people suffering like me. The problem is now affecting my daily life and my social life with my own families and friends. I hope there is someone to help me out. This year my goad is to find a cure for my problem at any cost.
Avatar n tn They will be looking for everything from pressure due to fluids to tumors (which is my worst fear). I didn't know that early morning vomiting can be a sign of pressure to the brain, but my doc clued me in this morning. It's only Tuesday, so meanwhile, the doc ordered me to administer the Zantac to my daughter at bedtime at least, if not even more throughout the day. I am praying it has nothing to do with anything neurological.
Avatar f tn We've been to the places with the car chairs and the movies and games at least 5 times and they have never been able to finish his hair, so I just do it myself which is horrible for both of us. Another thing that sets him off is hand dryers in public bathrooms. I understand he's afraid but the extreme reaction he has just can't be normal. He also does not adjust to a new environment well which worries me as he will start Kindergarten next year.
Avatar m tn yes. its been a huge fear for years now. im afraid of being sick in school or in a public place. when i dont feel well i stay home and avoid public spaces, or when someone in my family has the stomach flu, i wash my hands CONSTENTLY and i stay home from school for atlease 3 days so i dont catch it and then get sick at school.
Avatar m tn I canceled a long trip just this week because of the fear of having an attack while riding in the car with my sister, and because of the fear of having an attack while making arrangements to fly home alone as standby. What if it happened on an airplane, or while waiting to board? I am so discouraged. Also, I'm wondering if you take Lipitor. I do, but I've been taking it for about four years. I was reading the possible side effects this morning and one of them is tendon problems.

585414 tn?1288944902 Relief workers said rural hospitals and clinics were overwhelmed, particularly in St.-Marc. “There are significant numbers of patients in St. Nicholas Hospital in St.-Marc, which does not have the capacity to handle a cholera emergency,” Federica Nogarotto, a Doctors Without Borders coordinator in St.-Marc, said in a statement. She said that it was important to keep those with cholera away from other patients, and that work was under way to set up an isolated cholera center.
Avatar m tn   I've been to an ENT (twice) who scoped it (twice) and said there was thick mucus in the back of my nasal cavity and that it was irritated.  I always feel like I have pressure in the back of my throat and actually have to "snort" (I know that sounds disgusting) very aggressively to finally dislodge some thick mucus so that the back of my upper throat/nasal passage feels better--sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
Avatar f tn ) One of my neighbours is a cousin but she's more of a GP and I have a few cousins who are doctors in Cork but none of them specialise in the brain or anything so they don't really know how to help :/ No, I appreciate the reply, thank you :) I wrote down some of the symptoms I've been getting after they did the MRI *Photophobia (Any bright/flashing lights) *Headaches (back of the skull and behind my eyes but that could be the papelodema) *Dizziness (Especially when I stand up) *Back of neck and
Avatar n tn I have a specific type of emetophobia. I'm not afraid of throwing up in general, just afraid of throwing up in public. Sometimes I feel as if I would feel considerably better if I did just throw up. But I can't, no matter how bad I'm feeling. The fear started a few weeks after I had a stomach bug. When I had the bug, I was riding home from school on a Friday afternoon (I'm a high school student), and I threw up all over the bus. The thing is, it didn't affect me psychologically at all.
Avatar f tn I do not want to initiate any unnessary enquiry which could jeopardise the doctors careers but I definately want all of the doctors to have knowledge of the situation though so that they might think about this in the future. Im not sure if a general letter to my surgery practice manager detailing the events might be worthwhile if only to get my concerns across.
1306047 tn?1333247191 Then after several years of being on them I noticed I started to have outragous rages of temper, really scary in your face, smashing everything up outbursts. Even started to physcially attack my partner not just with myself but anything I could lay my hands on. I would become very aggressive to somone who barged me in the street or on a bus and there were times my temper sky rocketed and I literally in those moments wanted to kill that person.
Avatar f tn I'm 14 years old and I'm pretty aware of my health issues, I have an anxiety disorder and depression. But starting in November 2007, my fear of throwing up and getting sick in public has spiraled out of control. I was 9 years old, but I remember it like it was yesterday. I was sitting in my gym class and I was playing with my hands... and I remember I wasn't paying much attention, but I was silent so I didn't think I was making much of a disturbance, but I guess so.
Avatar f tn I'm sure there must be a name for the fear of eating in front of other people........but the name of what you do when you get home is BULIMIA. This is a very, very dangerous and potentially life threatening habit to get into. PLEASE see your doctor immediately and tell him/her what you've been doing. They need to run some tests to see if you are seriously depleted of essential elements and also to make sure you're not dehydrated.
Avatar n tn I just started noticeing it in the middle of the nite...when im laying flat after a few gulps of water...a delayed....gurgle... i never noticed it during the day...what is IT??
Avatar f tn Intense fear of vomiting, "Emetophobia" is actually very common. All the rest of this stuff sounds like other anxiety issues. Does he get regular intense physical exercise? Sounds like he'd be a great candidate for a trampoline.
Avatar f tn I think it would be better to just come clean and tell people that once they have resistance to a class of DAA then any drug in that class will be less effective for them in the future, although it may still be of some use in an intelligently targeted combo. Lastly, I still remember one of HR's great posts a while back. He sounded the warning bells then about these combos.

Seventy percent of hospitalized cases have high risk conditions (including pregnancy), but 30% are apparently healthy young persons, so everyone needs to be careful to practice respiratory infection control. Pandemic H1N1 flu affects the young with 5% occurring in persons older than age 50.
Avatar f tn If we do get rid of this I think I will always live with the fear in the back of my mind that we might catch it again. I always say that things could always be worst!
Avatar f tn Dr Salim Abid, the manager of public health and research at HAAD, said the authority would be watching Dubai closely and would “welcome any change in the law”. “Both in terms of follow-up for positive cases and the long-term future of these cases,” he said. “There is no good reason why they should be deported.” That sentiment was echoed by Dr Bassam Mahboub, the head of the Emirates Respiratory Society. “It’s easily treated,” he said.
Avatar n tn I am also having chest pains, burning sensations in left side of chest and my arm goes numb. I have tingling in my hand. I have trouble with sentences and finding words. I have trouble with recalling certain things and I have had trouble with loud noises. Drs. don't have a clue and this seems to be a pattern from what I have read from different comments on this site. It's good to know that we have common symptoms and are not alone.

299260 tn?1304219705 A strong woman isn't afraid of anything… But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear. A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her… But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone. A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future… A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them. A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face… But a woman of strength wears grace.
Avatar n tn I am a 41 year old female with a 2 year old, in good health other than being about 10 pounds overweight. Two months ago I began experiencing shortness of breath. I yawn constantly in an attempt to get air. The doctor thought asthma, especially given my family history of lung problems, so though my lungs sounded clear I tried advair/albuterol. No change in condition. I had a ct scan to check for a pulmonary embolism and everything looked good.

Avatar n tn Following is my case, please see if anyone can help or relate: I randomly get "periodic episodes" of severe stomach pains that occur roughly about 2-3 months apart, almost always a few hours (anywhere from 1-4) hours of having a dinner (that is, almost all episodes occur at night time right before or at about bed time); each generally lasting 7-9 hours on the average.
