Not sure if I'm having panic attacks

So towards the beginning of summer, I was going to an exam in school when I vomited. I really wasn't feeling well from the morning but, because of the stress of exams and whatever, I dismissed it. Recently, however, whenever I have to go out, my heartbeat skyrockets and I feel nauseous. I usually don't throw up (well, I do but nothing comes out; not sure what that's called) It's not that I'm afraid of going out, it just happens. I think I may have a fear of throwing up. However. I constantly feel bad in my stomach all day, every day, and compulsively swallow all the time, something that I do when I feel nauseous. I've also lost some of my appetite. Do you guys think I have a panic disorder?

Re: Not sure if I'm having panic attacks

Its really hard to say for sure. The symptoms you describe could be associated with panic disorder, but I'd schedule an appointment with your doctor to rule out any other physical condition before settling with panic disorder. I hope you find your answer soon!

I went to the doctor. After examining me, he scheduled a blood test for helicobacter pylori. I tested positive and got started on antibiotics. I'm feeling a bit better, but I still get these symptoms at the thought of going out. Surely it can't be a coincidence?

Well I'm glad he figured it out for you and that you are feeling a bit better. You very well could have a touch of panic brought on by your past episodes, especially if its a thought thats triggering them.
