I've had "chronic nausea" since I was about 11 or 12 (that's 10 years of it!) and I haven't found anything that really helps. My pediatrician had told me "You have chronic nausea. You are just going to have to learn to deal with it." So being so young, I figured I would just have to listen to him and live with it. IBS hasn't been a problem until the last year and a half or so, so before that, it's just been the nausea. I guess I just did what the doctor said and dealt with it. I got to the point where I knew I wasn't going to throw up, so I just told myself that, and have just been living feeling nauseous all the time. But ever since I've suffered from IBS symptoms, I have actually thrown up a couple of times, so now I have this huge fear that I am going to throw up every time I feel really nauseous. Every since the IBS appeared, the nausea has gotten worse to where I can't tell the difference between if I just have nausea or if I'm going to throw up. (I used to be able to tell that it was just nausea over the past several years.) When I'm at home, I deal with it and tell myself that it's ok because the bathroom is right down the hall and I'm in the privacy of my own home, but when I am in public, I get really anxious. I used to have panic attacks about every day I went to school. If I start to feel nauseous my mind starts saying, "Oh no, what happens if I'm going to throw up? Where am I gonna go? etc. etc etc." When I get stuck in a crowd of people or I feel I don't have a way out of somewhere, I start panicking because I fear throwing up in front of them. I went to a psychotherapist who didn't help much. She looked at me weird when I told her I have a fear of throwing up in public. So I stopped going to her after a couple of times. I also started taking 5mg of paxil which has helped me a lot with my IBS symptoms, and it seems as though I am back to knowing that I'm not going to really throw up, and it's just nausea. I don't have any answers to helping with nausea. So I guess this was just a big rant to say that I suffer from the same chronic nausea and panic attacks/anxiety.
