Is this anxiety? Heart problems? How to cope -

Posted , 3 users are following.

Over the past two days I have felt completely awful. 

It started at night, I was laying down, and I felt like I was going to pass out. 

I got up and started dry heaving

    I wasn't naseous, I just felt clammy and gagging and dry heaving. 

    It continued all night until the I fell asleep. 

    The next day I felt weak and assumed I was dehydrated. 

    the dry heaving episodes happened again twice. 

    That night, I checked my blood pressure - 89/60. 

    i drank some pedialite for the assumed dehydration and ate some soup. 

    Another episode. 

    Slept, ate a muffin in the morning and check my blood pressure again. 

    105. Alot better. I assumed I was fine but in class today, I felt like dry heaving again!

    And agani just now. 

    It feels like my stomach lurches and I want to throw up but I'm not nasoues. I don't have a stomache ache, and am actually pretty hungry, except for not wanting to eat cuz the gaggin. 

    Is this just anxiety?

    I am 25 in college and working part time. I'm not any more stressed than I have been in the past. 

    My heart rate is high though, 95 - 105. 

    Which is why I think it may be anxiety as well.

      Sorry for the format, not sure how to edit. 

      I can't get to a doctor for another two weeks and I'm not sure how I'm supposed to function at school while I continuously want to throw up.

      Well.. You dont really mention anything about your heart that much.. However 86/60 blood pressure is pretty low. But this depends on whether or not you get symptoms. These all sound like the typical symptoms of panic attacks. Whenever my panics start i feel like im going to faint too which could be scary!
