So I'm a 20 year old male and I have been experiencing a strange situation with my eating. As of about 5 years ago, I began feeling like I was going to throw up while I ate. I understand this is a common issue but what's weird is that when I'm home or eating with my family or close friends, I never feel like throwing up while I eat. However, when I used to eat lunch at school, or now when I'm studying abroad and eat with my apartment mates here, I literally can't eat a meal without feeling like throwing up. It's not that I don't want to eat, I actually love food, but I just can't force it down. I was hoping somebody could have an answer for this.

Based on your history and description the throwing up is most likely related to anxiety and has a psychiatric association. You need to consult a psychiatrist to determine the exact cause. Behavioural cognitive therapy, psychotherapy and medication as alone or in combination may be advised to manage these issues.
