It has all started with a stomach bug 10 months ago, I had gas, cramps, stayed up all night, and vomitted once in the morning then I felt better the next day. No, wrong. My life has completely changed since that day, I've noticed that I developed fear of being sick, fear of eating normal meal over these months. I've been very careful what I eat since then, and I end up not eating many meals due to my anxiety and stress that I'm going to be sick, what happens is that as soon as I start to eat a normal meal I get a nauseous feeling that lasts a few seconds and forces me to stop eating - I think because my mind is always busy should I continue eating, I'll be sick.. and so on..
I've noticed a pattern, If I think about it for some time I start to feel tightness in chest, shortness of breath and slight nausea, sometimes I'm lucky and can distract myself, other times It leads to rapid heart rate and more nausea and make a visit to the ER.. my problem is that I'm so anxious about my health, about being sick, and about eating and being sick. I've lost alot of weight due to the lack of appetite, no longer enjoy food, I'm suffering so much from this, It's realy destroying my life completely.. even though i vomitted like twice only in the last 10 years I do not know why my mind does not accept food and that I'll be fine if I eat and why I can't stop myself thinking about sickness. It's terrible.
Does anyone know any medicine that helps in this case? I've tried everything else except antidepressants, I do not know what to do, should I try something like Remeron, Librax, or Sulpride, or any other med that can help me in this situation? I think if I can force my mind to not think about sickness I'll be fine, but how to do that?
Please help me. I'm hopeless!
