Lately with my HA being really bad I feel like I’m going to throw up If I try to eat. I have no appetite and just have to force myself to eat saltines or soup like I’m sick. This is awful!! Anyone else do this??
In my case, the nausea came first and was followed by the anxiety. My doctor and I believe the nausea was caused by GERD that results from a small hiatal hernia that was discovered during an endoscopy about six months ago. No vomiting whatsoever, but boy have I felt awful! I am managing it by sleeping on an incline, not eating before bed, and taking pantoprazole (a PPI). I also take Tums and Mylanta as needed.
My point is that even if it is physical in origin, it's probably manageable -- which is something I know I struggle with when I don't know what is causing uncomfortable and scary sensations.
But all that said, of course anxiety can create the nausea. Anxiety can create all sorts of lovely sensations that have no other origin. I've experienced most of them, and it's really just a bunch of cruel tricks! Why, brain? Why can't we be friends...
i used to have this feeling. every time i see food i feel nauseous. after i eat i also feel like im going to vomit. i feel like im losing weight so I went to the ER. everything checked out okay it's just my anxiety. now my nausea's gone and i can feel hunger again. i just hope it doesn't come back again.
