Anxiety symptom makes me gag
Hi Jill....yes fortunately it did subside. Takes about 6 weeks for me each time it happens. I find that I have to eat very moist things because my mouth also gets dry. I make myself eat even if it is only a few grapes, it does make you feel better. I also use a vitamin B herbal supplement.
Hope you can get on top of it.
Since returning back to work 4 days a week (with my son in daycare) I have begun waking up with my heart pounding, followed by a 'wave' of gagging. This can pass over a period of about 10 minutes and will usually happen any time before I arrive at work - mornings are a real rush too. Over the last few weeks it has now escalated to any time during the day. Arriving at social gatherings, before going to the shops etc. In the beginning I thought it was the mum guilt thing causing the anxiety but now the 'waves' can occur when he is with me for the day . I have booked an appointment with my GP. Smells can also be a trigger!
After reading a few posts, clearly I am not alone in this... Has anyone been through something similiar and come out the side?

The smell thing is awful and lve had it for a while.Im.on anti depressants now and see a phycologist to help me work thru it. ...l know its a horrible feeling and lm hoping one day it will stop....l no longer work becsuse if it....l hope you feel better soon
