ok, so I've suffered on and off with anxiety for about 13 years, but majorly the last 5. The main symptom that gets me is SEVERE nausea quite often leading to vomiting not helped that I have a fear of sick anyway! This can literally come from no where! if it's a situation where I know I am anxious I can handle it, but take the other day, arranged to meet some friends for a catch up and lunch including the kids between us which I was really looking forward to, hadn't worried about it or felt anxious or anything and 15 mins before I feel extremely sick! have to sit down and take diazepam (which I have prescribed for severe attacks) this seems to be the only thing to stop the nausea (other than actually vomiting). There is honestly no warning sometimes and I wondered if anyone else has experienced this? I've tried SSRI's - 2 of which made me very sick so GP changed to Sertraline and an anti sickness tablet. eventually I weaned myself off the anti sickness but I don't feel the sertraline actually helps at all for the anxiety - thoughts, comments, suggestions gratefully received! I just want to live some sort of 'normal' life. Thanks
