I have the same thing. I am so scared of puking because my mom once told me that I could die if I inhaled my puke. In fact, I am scared of everything. If I am in a restaurant eating fish, I can give myself a panic attack just thinking that I might be choking on a fish bone. The last time I was on an airplane, I nearly passed out in fear. My hands and feet went numb and it started to move up my arms, and I thought I was going to die of a heart attack right there on the plane. Then I started to worry that if I died or had a panic attack, they would have to land the plane, and that would be so embarassing. I was flying from Denver to Baltimore, and it was three hours of pure hell. The only time I feel happy is when I am at home. I am at the University too, and I start sweating as soon as I get in the door. In fact, I pretty much am in a generalized state of anxiety as soon as I walk outside. I feel like everyone is looking at me like I am ugly and horrible, and I get so paranoid. I have avoided making friends and talking to anyone, because I am so afraid of looking stupid and I can't handle the rejection if someone doesn't like me. When the professor asks a question in class, even if I know the answer, I start to have panic attacks and I stop breathing and my face turns red because I am not breathing. Everyone laughs at me when I am called on, and I am so miserable. ANyway, you are not alone. I also suffer from irritable bowel syndrome. I'm glad that there is someone else out there is like me.
