Common Questions and Answers about Social anxiety vomit

anxiety

Avatar n tn I suffer from anticipatory/social anxiety. In my case I feel extremely nauseous before a social event in which I'm unsure of how it will go. For instance, I'm less nervous if I've been in the social setting before, but if it's a new setting I feel sick and often vomit before going to the event or on the date. I hadn't experienced the vomiting in a while until I started dating a woman a few months ago.
Avatar n tn I would always want to vomit because of severe social anxiety. I would also want to vomit because of anticipatory anxiety as well. These feelings came to me before major events and dating. They have subsided because I have slowly trained myself to relax. I rarely get these feelings. Probably the last time was a year ago before a date. When I would meet a woman for the first time on a date or before we would kiss, I would get very nauseous. I would have to leave the room.
Avatar m tn Hi everybody. I have suffered from SEVERE emetophobia and social anxiety for about four years now. My biggest fear is vomiting and/or having a panic attack in front of my friends or people that know me. In the beginning, I used to be able to "control" my vomiting, I just felt nauseous and anxious when being social, but now it is at the point where every time I do something social I will vomit. I have been on 100 mg of Pristiq for almost 6 months now, and it has helped somewhat.
4140898 tn?1350231255 What causes Social Anxiety? Because i have Social Anxiety and i was wondering what causes it.Could it be the bullying i received in grade 4 through to grade 7? (it was only words from the boys saying im fat and stuff) also i don't like being touched at all even by my relatives it makes me feel sick, like i'm going to vomit. I have been diagnosed with Depression as well could that be the reason why i don't like being touched?
Avatar f tn I would recommend counseling to help you deal with your anxiety. It's common to have a sick stomach when you have anxiety because of excess stomach acid. Ask your Dr if it's safe for you to take something for this before and during your pregnancy.
Avatar m tn Hi, i'm a 20 year old college student and i've had severe and chronic nausea for almost 5 years now and feel the need to vomit almost all the time. My appetite has been very poor for these years and I never feel hungry. I've been to many gastrologists who have done blood work and an upper Endoscopy and have found nothing. Things that aggravate my nausea and vomiting is emotional stress, anxiety, coughing, and I have ZERO alcohol tolerance.
Avatar f tn Just like a cat, it might be a primitive response to dealing with an unfavorable situation that develop into a social anxiety. I suggest talking with the person displaying their behavior and dig for their triggers. If making noise is a problem perhaps adding a water-safe radio to the toilet can make it a more relaxed experience. Anther Idea would be to add some lysol in restroom if the problem is a germ phobia.
Avatar m tn I get the sudden urge to vomit, it happens randomly, with and without full stomach. When that happens, I’m confident that I won’t vomit but my stomach forces me to do so, my mouth gets filled with saliva which I have to swallow repeatedly. My conscious mind acts abnormally, thoughts which make no sense (as if in a dream) pops up in my brain. The thoughts are similar everytime it occurs.
Avatar n tn Thanks for your comment chrismary. I read klonopin works best for reducing anxiety with social anxiety disorder. What effects did klonopin have on you when you first started it? Did it reduce anxiety? Any side effects? I read your post, what is mask face? I'm glad I didn't have the same side effects as you when I started taking my SSRI. Hope it's not too bad. Could you reply to this post or email me? I would really appreciate it.
Avatar m tn "Do you think the 'what iffs' are just plain insecurity rather than something that the subconscious mind is aware of which I am not? " The "what ifs" are solely a symptom of anxiety....and a VERY common one. Pretty much anyone who suffers from ANY form of anxiety experiences that. Just to give you an example....if a person has extreme anxiety and panic attacks, they will constantly "what if"...."What if I have a panic attack in the grocery store?"....
Avatar m tn Thank You sooooooooo much. I am going to try your suggestions. I to, used to be able to drive the freeway like a crazy person. I actually LOVED the freeway & driving itself now I fear it everyday. I take back roads to work & have not driven the xpressway in a year but I want to so bad. I try to tell myself that this is NOT going to control me & some days are good & I feel like I can drive forever...but most days are a real challenge. I have trouble at stop lights....
Avatar f tn By the way, lots of people can't stand the sight of vomit -- my Dad, one of the least psychologically ill people I've known, would vomit at the sight of vomit!
Avatar f tn yes when am in anxiety i cant eat i lose lots weight and feel yucky so anxiety is good for that, i try and eat yoguart it seems to help some , just having something in your stomack should help
Avatar n tn There are two types of social anxiety. One is specific; the other is generalized. In specific SA, one may vomit thinking about speaking publicly for instance (please refer to <a href=http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2003/9/2/21338/04802>http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2003/9/2/21338/04802</a>).
Avatar n tn My 5 yo daughter has always been independent--comfortable with change and very social. She has been in pre-school programs since 3, and started kindergarten 3 weeks ago (5 days/wk, 1/2 day). After coming home, she was very excited to share her day, activities, talk about new friends, etc.
Avatar n tn could it have been from too much anxiety/stress? I've noticed that my anxiety occurs more in social situations than anything else. Although I don't have extreme social anxiety that hapmers my everyday life it is still somewhat bothersome at times. What bothers me the most is when I have to talk or present in class because my anxiety causes me to have embarassing physical symptoms including shaking, blushing, fast hearbeat, and shortness of breath.
Avatar n tn o im 16 now and have gotten over my parts of my anxiety got back to eating after a year, but am still terrified of vomit or feeling nauseous. itd be great to wake up and be totally normal with full self confidence. Now everytime i feel nervous i get a terrible rash on my chest. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn Although it may be true, I am having a tough tough time believing that all these chronic physical symptoms are as a result of anxiety alone. If I am treated for anxiety, I am wondering if they will improve or if the physical symptoms will linger and if so for how long? Would love to here some experiences on this from the forum.
Avatar m tn Time will tell how this will evolve. Likely you are witnesing the early signs of social anxiety, but it is really too early to say that with certainty.
Avatar f tn Chin=hormonal. So i know it's serious). I think I also have a social phobia along with the constant anxiety because I don't like being around people. I feel so uncomfortable I have another anxiety attack. Sadly I happens in class most. I really consider HOMESCHOOL. And wish for it next semester but we only have 2 weeks left and I can't stand the thought of going another semester with my anxiety. My mom said she noticed something different about me and said it was just hormonal.
Avatar m tn I am 15 and was officially diagnosed with Social Anxiety (finally) about 5 months ago even though I've had anxiety since year 8/ early year 9 (don't know what that is in American system - sorry). I noticed the gas thing last year and IT ONLY SEEMS TO HAPPEN AT SCHOOL! I am so self-conscious about it. It doesn't affect my life as greatly as it seems to affect everyone else's on this website but it really affects my learning. About 70% of my time in lessons is spent on me focusing on the gas.
Avatar n tn However, sometimes those symptoms described above make me think or fear that I may actually vomit, but it is not a fear of vomit that causes those symptoms. These symptoms mostly occur when I have to eat lunch or dinner around people. They almost never occur at a breakfast meal. The symptoms can become real intense especially if I have to eat around people that I never have before. Also, sometimes the symptoms do not even occur.
Avatar n tn This spring and last (at the same exact time, when oak pollen was strong) I got the constant burping and anxiety. For me, taking some Tussin product helped somewhat. Anxiety and allergies seem to go hand-in-hand for me and can produce some weird symptoms. Sometimes it helps just to know that's all it is. Hang in there!
Avatar n tn I really think sometimes if only he could've been subjected to people more often when he was littler this could've helped him. I really don't know. Is there a cure? Does this have a name? Social Anxiety maybe? Does it happen in young ages as his? Thanks again for your reply!
Avatar f tn Before I get into this, let me say that I have had social phobia, GAD (generalized anxiety disorder), and depression all my life. But this only started in 2014. I'm currently 21 years old. So this began to happen July of 2014. After living in this apartment for about 9 years we were getting evicted, which meant that we had to get rid of our three cats that we had had for closer to 10 years. One of the cats was /my/ cat that I loved very much and I still get a bit weepy thinking about her.
Avatar n tn I always bring water with me, just for the fact that if i dont sip on anything while im out, i start to panic (and when i mean panic, i have had panic attacks due to this, mostly anxiety attacks now) This situation makes me wonder if i have some kind of disorder affiliated with anxiety or anxiety is just being manifested because of the mucus. My anxiety only seems to go away if i vomit, and i usually do end up vomiting due to the gagging.
774736 tn?1311334985 I have been posting a lot within the past couple months but I cant seem to shake my health anxiety...Ive been to the ER twice had two ekgs, chest xrays, blood tests etc...Im scared of having a heart attack, cancer, lung problems, and colon problems...

Avatar m tn i have trouble eating anything that is solid, it gets me nauseated and i want to vomit, but because of what i have read, it is all anxiety caused. i never knew how i got it cause two weeks ago we were on our way to arizona to spend some time with my family when it happened. i was not thinking much of anything and me and my husband were having a good conversation on how much fun we will have once we got there.
