I'm struggling a bit lately with understanding if the sickness I feel is anxiety or something more physical. My anxiety makes me feel like I'm actually going to throw up, and I've been so nauseated these past few days I can't even eat really. I've actually been spending more time online with friends and even though that's made me happy, I can't seem to differentiate being ill or just anxious. I've been told to check with a doctor but I'd be even more mortified if something isn't wrong, especially with covid still around. Thinking about this makes me ill too. Does anyone else struggle with this? How do you manage going about it?

      Hey! I struggle with this too! Don’t worry. My father and basically my whole family are in the medical profession! I know that most doctors would be so ok talking to you! They should mostly care that you are getting what you need. If they don’t you might want a different doctor. If it is a medical issue, you should be seeing a doctor. I think you should but it’s up to you and your family! ❤️ hope you feel better soon. 💕

      Nothing wrong with getting things checked out, I normally feel nauseous too when I’m anxious but I normally can tell when it’s a different feeling. If you don’t normally get nauseous when your nervous you might want to go in. Don’t worry it could easily be nothing!

      I went to the Dr for anxiety and ended up having gallbladder surgery, i still have anxiety but that sick feeling in my stomach is gone 🤗

      Hi! You are not alone. My anxiety can get me to that point often. It seems if I anticipate it the symptom will happen. For example I have severe Covid anxiety because I’m so worried about my baby getting it. I often develop symptoms of Covid without actually having it. Anxiety can cause stomach problems from nausea to diarrhea.

      Just know you know your body. If this different and new it is worth checking into. I have had anxiety for a few years, but I started having lightheaded/dizzy spells. And for awhile they did blame my anxiety. Turns out I have pots. And it’s something to look into, especially if you haven’t been able to eat.

        @Alexiz_ hi! How did you find out you had pots?

      I struggle with the exact same type of physical anxiety. Whenever I get overly anxious, I get really sick to my stomach and can’t eat. One time I got so anxious on a bus trip that I literally sat in the bathroom of the bus the whole 2 hours. I personally try to avoid thinking about whatever upcoming event is triggering my anxiety, and I make sure to take my medication (along with a buspartone supplement if it’s very bad) Sometimes ignorance is bliss! I also take anti antacid medication if I start getting reflux. I would ask your doctor before doing anything drastic related to medication or treatment. The doctor might be helpful in case it might be something else

      I thought I just had severe random anxiety for so long but now I’m getting tested for POTS. It’s definitely worth looking into and seeing if it’s physical.

      I also have a lot of physical issues caused by my anxiety. I even recently got X-rays of my ribs just to find out it’s another physical symptom of anxiety. while it’s always a little frustrating to get those results, it’s not something you should be embarrassed by. if it’s concerning you, you deserve to seek help in knowing how to treat it, whatever it may be, and a good doctor will understand that. I’d say if it lasts longer than usual and is interrupting your daily life and functions, seeing a doctor sounds reasonable!
