I'm a little confused about my nausea with IBS i have IBS sometimes C and D, But the worst of my symptoms is the nausea.

The nausea is usually when im anxious, I'm anxious when i'm out about where the nearest toilets are and then i start to panic about being sick, i get hot and lightheaded and start to heave as if im going to be sick. I'm always fine when at home.

Is it all in my head?? does anybody else get this??

My IBS is really getting me down and i get anxious over the IBS. Ive always been a very relaxed socaible person untill i found out about the IBS, I'm so afraid of throwing up in public.

Please Help!!

It's nice to be on here, so many people going through the same crap that I am. I get extremely sick in cars and buses. Especially if the AC is on and the windows have to be kept closed. I can never drive in a car cause I puke in a few minutes. It's so horrible I always have to take my bike while my friends or family are travelling in the car and I can't make long road trips either. Thankfully airplanes are somewhat better where I can just pop in some pill and fight it out the few hours.

Have you tried Ginger pills?

They work great with my nausea, the only bad thing is that they can cause heartburn.

I suffer from both IBS and anxiety & depression.  I found that my IBS symptoms were greatly reduced when I started taking an anti-depressant.  I take Paxil now, but have tried many others.  Zoloft was the worst for me because it gave me so many digestive problems; with IBS, you don't need any more of that!  Anyway, I wasn't sure if you were taking anything for anxiety.  If not, it may help you all the way around.

Thanks KGood,
Ive heard anti depressants is good for IBS, my mum takes them she has IBS and so does my gran.
All this stress really isn't helping.
I'm going back to the docs this week.
Hopefully my nerves and anxiety will ease given time.
