Hi everyone! I have a question that I can't find a solid answer for on google. Ever since my anxiety first spiked when I was 11 and I stopped eating as much, when I am very stressed, do too much physical exercise, or sometimes when I eat greasy food, I get a sharp pain in the left side of my stomach just below my ribcage. Heat seems to help somewhat but only time can make it go away. It's been a consistent symptom of mine for over a decade and it worries me but no one can tell me what it is. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
My friend threw up on Sunday and I was in close contact with her on Monday. And now I’m freaking out that I might have caught a bug from her. I can’t sleep or function I am so anxious. And advice or support?
i’m 17 now and i’ve had a fear of sick since i was 7, what was weird is that at 14, 15, 16 it faded away and i was able to do more things and was generally less anxious. All of a sudden now i’m 17 and now there isn’t a night that goes by without me sat there in my bed having a panic attack because i’m nauseous. Another thing was everyone i’ve spoke to with my condition has thrown up relatively recently. i haven’t thrown up since i was 7, is that normal?
Does anyone else suddenly feel really nauseous and unwell leading up to a bowel movement?? For some reason I get so many symptoms - I get headaches, I feel really hot, I get nauseous, dizzy, flushed, I sweat a lot - but all of it calms down after pooping. What causes this? Is it normal??? Side note: I have bad health anxiety and emetophobia; so is this something to do with those? Or is it an IBS thing? I’m very confused by it, it doesn’t seem logical to me. Please help 😅
do you have emetophobia?
Hey! I have suffered from terrible emetophobia for almost 5 years and haven’t told many people because well I don’t really know why. Any tips on how to tell my parents so they can help me through it??
