Just posting on the off chance someone else might share this complaint, or be able to offer advice!
I've just turned 20 and currently at uni. I have always suffered with anxiety in some form or another, and in me it presents itself in an extreme feeling of nausea to the extent where I can be absolutely convinced I will throw up. As I've got older, my anxiety has got progressively worse. I can't pinpoint exactly what it is that makes me so anxious, I can only guess that it's the fear of actually being sick whilst in front of other people (ie a public place). Eating out in restaurants is the biggest one for me. When the food arrives I'll just feel sick and be unable to eat it. I can try to relax myself by breathing more slowly and deeply, which helps sometimes, but it's always a conscious effort. I can't explain why I feel like this - I've never been sick in a restaurant, and until recently I have been able to eat in restaurants with no trouble at all. Other things which until recently haven't bothered me now make me feel nauseous - I had to take a train journey today to attend a summer class at uni (a journey which I've made almost everyday for two years until about a month ago) and I felt terrible all the way there!
Anyone else suffer the same?
