So The basics are-
I'm 16, female, had anxiety most of my life, mostly problems with feeling trapped in a situation and i have serious emetophobia (links with the anxiety also) its a cycle of important anxious, so I feel nauseous, i panic about vomiting, i feel more anxious, thus more nauseous and so on
This morning however I woke up with really bad stomach cramps, my period is due so I assumed I was just getting hit with a belter of a period. I got up and ready for school (school is also another problem, i only go for 3 hours and I sit in a room alone and do work because my anxiety is that bad)
About 30 minutes later i was about to eat my breakfast when another stomach cramp came and I couldn't move, felt like I was going to be sick, I totally panicked, my entire body started rapidly burning up and sweating so I literally ripped all of my clothes off. It was horrible I had myself so stressed.
I then convinced myself I was going to be sick because the pain was that bad, I went into the bathroom and I had gagged a few times but nothing happened, I refused to go to school and my mum was furious but there was no way I was going. Now the sweat has gone and I don't feel as sick as I did but that could be because I took paracetamol so the stomach cramps have chilled
Was I just having a complete panic attack?
