I've had tests done like blood taken&ultrasounds, and everything came out positive.
I don't know what it is, but it's like a package deal, it has to be with me EVERYDAY!
I don't know if I have emetophobia because I am TERRIFIED of throwing up, but I never do, except when i have the flu.
I've missed so many days of school because of this problem, and I was always healthy.
This is not good for me because I want to get into a good high school.
I'm seeing a therapist, and I'm having my 2nd appointment today.
Anyone! Please! I'm only 12 years old, and I just want to live my life&be normal again... Thank You.

Throwing Up Shouldn't Be The Center of Your Life
Maresego123, I am 15 and I know exactly how you feel. I'm a junior this fall and I've had this problem since I was in 5th grade. I've always said I was going to puke and for the longest while I never really did unless I was truly sick. I am also afraid of throwing up but I don't think it is emetophobia.
Lucky for you, you aren't afraid to ask someone for help in finding out what your problem is and seeking assistance in doing so. I'm afraid to see a doctor so I don't know what they could do for my problem, I didn't want blood tests or anything like that. I've missed many days of school because I was sick with a cold but I rarely missed days when I felt like my whole stomach would come up out of me. The truth is I stuck to school and even with my stomach hurting every second of the day, I managed to stay strong and I barely went to the nurse.
For me it was difficult to be in school and have no one to talk to about how I felt except for my counselor and I don't know how I did it. I never puked at school once and the funny thing is I got all A's my sophomore year and I had a really hard time in school with paying attention.
I would say keep up with the therapist sessions and maybe try to face your fears. Try to bring back your normal routine and life, what you want to be like, slowly and continue it. My ex-boyfriend's mother gave me this wonderful stuff that I feel calms me down when I feel like I need to throw up, it is called Rescue Remedy, and I think you should look it up. I really hope you feel better. I've really progressed with my anxiety by trying to build my confidence up about myself and to try new things.

I also know how you feel ever since the fifth grade, I've been afraid to throw up. Every time I eat out I only think about how my system will react. Lately, it's gotten to the point where it's ruining my life. The neusea is so intense that I felt like I was going to die. I'm not even kidding, I felt like that i was going to die and ready to meet god (and it was scary because I was alone in a hotel room when the rest of my family went walking.) forever, I wanted to be normal and live my life. But no, I have to live with this fear. I really don't know what I'm going to do for my future. I walk around envious of people who have normal lives and don't have this fear. It kills me inside and I don't know what's happening: I think I might go to the doctor soon. I hate vacations, I sacraficed time with people I care for and have ruined my life. Sometimes, I don't like to wake from dreams because in my dreams, I have no fear, no stomach problems. I am free. But when I wake up, I'm locked in my cell of fear

I understand. I feel like it's ruining my life as well. There is a new school year ahead of me and I'm already nervous to have to go back. Except this year it's a new school, I'm on the student council and some other important groups for the school. It's a lot of pressure to live up to. Plus I've been thinking about college and how am I supposed to live away from home where I'm not in a comfortable environment. The stress of life makes the stomach problems worse...
I'd love to hear how you deal with things. Or just tell me what happens. I'm all eyes (in your case)!

I hope I can help
As a 21 year old women , I too feel like throwing up in the middle of the night , I have the same issues as you expect the diarrhoea ( You should look in to that with the hospital , tell your dad that you get sharp pains , it's not normal but do not be scared , just visit the doctors with your dad) .

But you look like you have the same problem as me anxiety , which hit's you at night mostly because you thing more at night then you do in the morning , in the morning your able to get distracted , talking to people and listening to music , and at night your in your bed all alone , that makes you panic with stress and anxiety.

But go to your local doctor and explain the symptoms again and ask them if it could be panic attacks.

I hope I helped.

i understand completely!
I know exactly how you feel. when I was 13, I had pretty much the same thing. I missed 2 full weeks of school & hardly could stay in class for another month. I constantly felt nauseous like I was on the verge of throwing up. i was SO afraid of puking & I had no idea why, it just scared me. I went and got blood tests & a stomache X-ray & everything came out normal. it turned out to be just anxiety. i went to therapy but that didnt make much of a difference. I'm 15 now, & I still struggle with it a little, but hardly at all. feeling sick like I did ruined my life for like 5 months, & I hated it. nothing specifically made me get over it, just time I guess. I was afraid to go to school & other places because I thought I was gonna get sick, so I just went to all those places to face my fears. it was REALLY hard at the time & even brought me to tears, but now I am SOOO glad I did it & overcame that fear so I could have my life back.
anyways, it sounds like you might have what I had, so best luck to you!! hope you get well soon. Smile

I'm 14 and I have had this problem since grade one. It went away around grade three and came back in grade six. I went to the doctor about it when I was little and there was nothing wrong. I recently went for an x-ray and an ultrasound and they couldn't find anything. I'm starting to think it's stress or fear. I'm terrified of throwing up. Whenever I feel like it I bite my lip or drink water, I try and keep my mouth busy even though I know its still going to come. I always feel like I'm going to throw up but I never do. This always happens at night while I'm trying to go to sleep. Sometimes during the school day. I'm afraid to sleep over places, go places or have friends over cause I might feel sick and ruin it. Sometimes Zantac helps settle my stomach for a little bit but not for long. Is there anything that can get my mind off being sick?

Me
When I was 10 and in the 4th grade, I started getting terrible stomach pains and I ended up staying home from school for nearly 2 months straight. Doctors did tests, scans and I ended up having a Catheter at 10. I remember throwing up 5 times a night because the nausea stages never passed. I was told that I had Acid Reflex- I took pills for that, but they didn't help and my mom, dad and I were all right that I didn't have it because I loved sodas and loading my plate with sauces every time I had the chance. The doctors took me off the pills. I still got the pains and nausea forever after so. I ended up having to be home schooled. (Still am.) The doctors later gave me more tests and said I had a Kidney Infection- and I did at the point. Now, the only reason I did have one was because I had been so worried and busy with tests that I was continuously waiting to go to the restroom. As weeks went on I was on a different medication for the Kidney Infection and well, the nausea feeling and stomach pains still remained! I'm 12 now and well, the pain it came and went throughout being 10 and 11. While I was 11, the stomach pain was there a lot and I had to go to a top hospital and get a lot of tests done because well...I always cried for hours because of the pain. I'm 12 and that nausea sensation is back. I am scared to go out- anywhere! If I eat out I have to get a salad because meat makes me you know what and feel nauseated. I hate this and I don't want to tell my parents about my pains because if I do I might just be wasting my time- again. This pain and feeling is getting really annoying and I'm about 13. I don't want to finally go out with a boy and throw up...That wouldn't be a good reputation to withhold. I just wish this feeling would die. Although, as it did before...I hope it'll wear-off. (Anybody have any tips on how to stop these feelings...?)

ooohh

i have had the same thing ever since last year
but when i was starting junior high (7th grade, new school new LIFE) it has gotten a lot worse and i went to the GI specialist yesterday and she prescribed me a capsule pill and today was my first day of taking it and it worked pretty well
even if it is for acid i think it actually helps settle me down
although ever since last week i have felt like SO SAD and gloomy and suicidal
is this depression??????

the only reason is because my bf was cheating on me with some other girl with huge boobs.....

Sad
i am still sad... and will probably never love again...
Sad

i can relate to that alot. this past january i had the worst stomach flu ive ever had in my life. every since then i've been so paranoid of throwing up it really started to ruin my life. this summer i decided how ridiculous my fear was and i began to go back to my normal life. this is simply mind over matter. i thought to myself i have been feeling nausea for months now and not once have i thrown up. after i convince myself that im fine i start to feel better. i am still scared of throwing up, its just the way i am. but now i can get on with my life. it is tough but if you just force yourself to do things normally your body will follow suit. i hope this helps :/

I have something similar. Some things that have helped me have been my homeopath, hypnosis (sounds scary but works sooo well) and acupuncture. All eastern medicine really seems to help with this. Good luck!
