I'm 19 years old, I suffer from a panic disorder. A lot of times when I'm riding in a car, or traveling, especially in the heat, I get really really sick. Today I went and traveled for almost two hours back and forth in a car. I ate some Wendy's. And now I feel like crap. My head doesn't really hurt, it's just sorta foggy. I'm dizzy and can't see straight. My stomach hurts, and my heart is racing, I'm assuming from my anxiety. I feel like I'm going to throw up, and I feel if I do though up I'll feel so much better, but somehow If feel like making myself self vomit isn't going to help, but make me more sick. What do you think is wrong with me? Do I feel worse because of something plus my anxiety? Please help.
Anxiety is clearly a big issue, and that should be controlled. Some medication might be warranted. If you get your anxiety under control, it would probably be easier to see if some of your symptoms are caused by something else.
Does anxiety come before or after the other symptoms happen?
Well, when I ride in a car and get sick, It usually goes away after an hour or so. But today it's really bad for some reason. And yes, when I'm laying down My mind starts racing and I'm really dizzy, and everything is very vivid in my head. I feel like I should go make myself throw up, my stomach and throat feel acidy.
Has anyone ever say anything to about your equilibrium? Not sure but maybe some of the problem could be getting rid of the dizzy feeling you might get from the panic attacks. I"ve never seen a doctor for this but I know in my case once I get that yucky dizzy feeling that makes me want to throw up I'm done for the day, I can't do a thing to go on but lay there. Maybe you can also ask your doctor about it, at least to releive some of the symptoms a little sooner.
No I've had problems traveling and being in the heat way before taking my zoloft. I had a really bad panic attack last night and I'm now recovering from it. I'm alittle dizzy and my stomach still hurts, but hopefully I wont have another one today.
