Hey guys. I'm new to this but here goes... About 4 months ago I had a sickness bug and I was only sick twice, but I had a fear of being sick before being ill, now ever since I was sick it's becoming worse and worse every week. It's got to a point now where I can't even go out for a alcoholic drink with my friends because I'm too scared I'm going to be sick or feel sick. Also little things like I don't like brushing my teeth because It leaves a nasty taste in my mouth which can make me feel I'll. I find it difficult going place I don't know also. This feeling restricts me from doing day to day things now, and is really interfering in my life. Now I find if difficult to eat. When I'm hungry it makes me feel sick, but because I feel sick I won't eat. So I eat the bare minimum, I've nearly lost a stone due to this. Also with this anxiety now, I always feel fatigued, no matter how much I sleep, also I get headaches a lot. Also I wind myself up so much I end up feeling sick, I start to panic, I start to shake and I go really hot and cold, most of the time I manage to calm myslef down, but this happens all the time, atleast once a day, when I'm out or jut in the middle of the night. Went to the doctors to have a blood test and everything came back fine. Which means it's a mental problem. Hopefully they will be able to sort this problem out, anyone else suffer with this? Or anything on the same lines? Or any tips?
