Question: (Stomach Acid) / (Anxiety) Please Help

 Servtex - Sun Oct 28, 2007 6:19 pm

This will get lengthy but i want to make sure i cover everything so i can get help.

Age: 0 - 15 I had 0 stomach problems i was social and athletic. I never liked public speaking or being around a HUGE number of people.

Age: 18
I was kinda forced to goto my senior prom. An hour before prom time i started coughing and fealing sick to my stomach. I made it through prom without getting sick but did get a little dizzy at times.

Every since that day i have felt sick every single mourning and if i HAVE to do somethng.

I wake up every mourning throwing up yellow stomach acid. Right after i wake up i throw it up then about an hour later im perfectly fine.

Throughout the day if something comes up where i have to do something lets say my girlfriend calls me and wants me to go out to dinner with her and her parents i cant because i will start caughing and fealing sick and start gagging.

Mon - Fri i throw up stomach acid

Sat - Sun im fine unless i have to wake up early for something in that case i will throw up stomach acid

I have had this problem for about 5 years now and would really like to figure it out

I have tried a couple medications i don't know the names or remember i gave up on them because of the side effects and i have a job that i cant miss work at all and have to work all day i cant deal with side effects like making me tired or dizzy or sick

If someone could please help i would appriciate it

User avatar Hi Servtex,

It sounds like your body has learned to react to stress by vomiting and getting nauseous. You may want to consider talking with a counselor that can help you retrain your body to react to stressful situations differently. This can be of tremendous help in situations such as this. Your doctor can recommend a psychologist/counselor if you are unfamiliar with any.

Best wishes.
