hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm trying to figure out if anyone else experiences some of the symptoms I have, because I don't know whether they are related to IBS or something else. First of all, I experience frequent nausea. Now, I also have acid reflux, hypoglycemia, and I'm emetophobic (phobic of throwing up), which could all cause nausea, but a lot of time it seems to be connected with needing to have a bowel movement, only I get the nausea first, and then the need to go to the bathroom. Also, sometimes when I'm having a bad flare up, I'll have a slightly elevated temperature anywhere from 90-100 degrees (my average is about 97.8). I'll feel really hot and uncomfortable for a while. Does anyone else experience either of these?

Hi Scarlet86, I'm also new, and I also have your symptoms! I have also experienced and still experience a phobia of throwing up, it used to be involved with panic attacks. You're the only other person ive ever heard of that has that phobia, its good to know im not the only one!

But the nausea I feel is definately there, its not imagined or caused by a 'panic' of any type. I get it before I go to the toilet. It can be really bad, like thisafternoon, i was washing the dishes and ended up bent over the sink and leaning on it feeling really faint and like i was going to be sick. The only thing that i've found so far that helps in any way is lying in a ball on a bed for a while until it passes. Its the most awful feeling. Especially when you're somewhere that you can't just lie down on the spot! I definately feel your pain ... the pain i get is nausea mixed with stomach ache.

i also get a temperature during a flare-up, especially at night and in the afternoons.

You're not alone! I too have that phobia, nausea and occasionally have a temp durring attacks.
Usually when I feel really bad my family tells me to just go make myself puke. I'm like HECK NO, I'll just wait it out. (I think they are crazy for doing that type of thing.) Several times I have put a garbage can in front of me while sitting on the pot thinking I might puke too. So far I haven't yet though... thank GOD!

I am fairly resistant to vomiting too; I am pretty good at keeping my stomach beat down. However, there have been times when I was so sick with my gall bladder that I wished I COULD vomit because I knew it would make me feel better afterwards. That's when you KNOW you're sick!

Wow, a fellow emetophobic and hypoglycemic :-) I find that I get extremely nauseous if I haven't gone to the bathroom for a few days. I will start sweating and spend the day on the toilet. This exhausts me. Once in a while I will stay nauseous for days, I take ginger capsules for this and they help me.
Take care, Softy

I also feel your pain!  I thought I was the only one like this!  I'm sooooo afraid of throwing up.......I hate it.  I get nauseous all the time and then I have to go to the bathroom....Just like the rest of you.  What in the world is going on with us????????????  I'm so glad that I'm not alone.  Here, lately, I have been in extreme panic because I have been gettting nauseous on the road and I have been keeping a bag in the car with me in case I end up tossing it, but I haven't yet, thank God!!!  I get really nauseous and then I'm in extreme panic because I think I'm going to throw up and then I have this sudden urge and have to pull over at the nearest gas station and to the bathroom about a 100 times before I can leave.  I reallllly reallllly reallllly hate this!

Hi Michelle, you’re not alone, I feel your pain so strongly! I suffered from the exact same thing for years and I still do, especially in situations (like you said, in the car) where you feel trapped, and like you’re going to be sick, and the fact that you’re in a confined and inconvenient space makes it sooooo much worse! I used to get similar attacks on my school bus for years during high school, and at year-meetings and in class. Id suddenly have this urge, I was positive I was going to be sick any second, I would go all pale and my heart would race at a million miles an hour and I felt really faint. I eventually put it down to panic attacks, but now that I’ve developed IBS, I find it difficult to separate the two. Because anxiety brings on IBS, or makes it worse, or both. So when I get that nausea I try to relax and breathe, and hold myself back from making a bowel movement, trying to discipline my body! I'm just glad I'm not the only once, I haven’t told a soul that I have these problems because I know nobody would understand.

Hahaha, I knew I wasn't crazy.  I'm know around my house and friends as being the crazy one for have a fear of throwing-up, along with a million others.  I'm tell'n ya, this web site has completely calmed my nerves, now knowing it's not just me.  I too am pretty good about being able to calm my stomach if I am feeling nauseated.  But, there are those dreadful occassions when you almost consider forcing yourself too b/c you can't stand the swirly stomach/intestines accompanied by eccessive heat and watery mouth. Yikes.  That's a scary movie in it's own right.  But I also have Gerd, or acid reflux, they're different, but who cares they have the same symptoms, and before i went on meds I would get real nauseated.  At the time they did have me on prescription meds for acid reflux but that just started the spiral of bad events.  But just be assured that there are others going thru what you're going thru.  Hope it makes you feel better, I know it does for me now.
