Anxiety symptom makes me gag
I hope it’s okay for me to extend a caring welcome to you here. Good on you for reaching out 🙂
I feel anxiety can be so debilitating and the past 3 months, in particular, sound very emotional for you. I feel ups and downs can be really draining...
Sorry, I haven’t personally experienced what you described. But I’m sure other people reading may be able to relate...the gagging sounds horrible. I feel for you...
Please feel free to write any time you like. That said, no pressure though, only if you’re feeling up to it...
Kind thoughts to you today...
Firstly welcome to you and thank you for sharing how you feel. I only posted a couple of days ago too and have found the Beyond Blue forum family to be wonderful, non judgmental and very helpful and most importantly- welcoming.
I am sorry that you’re feeling like this. It’s a wonderful thing that you have gone to the doctor regarding your anxiety and that you’re managing this upon medical advice.
To answer your question, anxiety is very different for everyone and can present itself in many ways. The feelings I get are racing heart, shakes, sweats etc. I have done a lot read reading & found that when anxiety is present it can manifest physically and it is different for everyone. But, I am definitely not a medical professional!!
If you’re worried about this and it is causing more anxiety and frustration- then definitely don’t dismiss it and go to another doc who specialises in mental health to obtain a second opinion.
I hope to hear back soon and sending many happy thoughts to you today
thank you for getting back to me!
Im not on any medication either for my anxiety.
I am just very aware of what my triggers are and how to manage them when I feel like I am out of control.
The best advice I received from my gp is when he said you know your body and what is right, wrong or if something is not feeling or agreeing with you. This was a light bulb moment for me and I realised that if I am feeling a particular way, then there may be something going on?
I hope this all makes sense!
