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.
