    Hi all!

    I was just wondering if anyone else experiences this.

    Recently I have been feeling sick for no reason at random times, like random pains, throat stuff and a bit of nausea. I seem to be physically fine aside from this and was wondering if anyone who suffers from anxiety experiences this too.

    It will normally come out of nowhere. Like I'll feel sick after taking a sip of water and then worry that there's something in it. Does anyone know if this is just paranoia?

    Does anybody have any advice on how to deal with stuff like this?

    Thanks!

    Hello yellowkiwi

    Welcome to the forum. It's a good place to talk about your feelings. Have been to the doctor to get these symptoms checked out. It may be as simple as a viral infection causing these feelings.

    It may also be that you are experiencing a panic attack which does come out of the blue for no reason you can see. Is anyone treating your anxiety? It would be good to discuss this with your therapist. If not perhaps your GP will refer you to someone to help you manage your anxiety. When it is affecting your everyday life it is important to get some help.

    I hope you will continue to post here if you find it helpful.
