: does anyone ever get nausea attacks?
: That is my only symptom. I am very sensitive to heat and light. It agrivates nausea.
: My meal schedule is always thrown off.
: Anyone ever get this symptom rather than heart palpitations? I'd rather trade someone.
My husband has Post traumatic stress from Vietnam due to the fact he was there from 67-69 (heavy fighting years) and he was a front line combat medic. He saw things so horrible, you could not even imagine it. He has a major eating disorder, of which does result in constant nausea. At one time, his esophagus was spasming so badly that he could not swallow. He almost died. No doctor dealing with his physical body (he had a duenodal ulcer, too) could figure him out. Then he went to a physchiatrist. This was in 1981. He prescribed medications to help with nausea. Of course, he was so "downed out" that he just sat there in the "o-zone" which was no life for him, as well as me and our 3 children. In my hubby's case, his post traumtic stress went into his entire digestive system amd even to this day, he lives with constant nausea, as he only takes Ativan. I don't feel it is enough. My hubby doesn't want to go back to living in the o-zone with heavy medications. But with his digestive system spasming so much, that in itself is causing his nausea. So, you are not alone, if indeed the nausea is being caused by anxiety. My husband has been diagnosed by a doctor. I am no doctor, just a person that has had it herself during her life and has lived with a suffering loved one. Take care, Pat G.
