Individuals who suffer from panic attacks or anxiety attacks are susceptible to anxiety nausea. It is one of the most difficult symptoms to endure for those who have this particular anxiety-related experience.
Nausea is a sick or uncomfortable feeling in the stomach coupled with an urge to vomit. Anxiety nausea is when feeling nauseas is a result of underlying anxiety. Literally, you are worried sick.
If you experience high levels of anxiety, it is not easy for someone who does not to understand what living with anxiety is like. You may get advice that underlines their well-meaning but ignorance about anxiety nausea by suggesting that you just need a small bit of food or that your blood sugar may be low.
Your emotional state is a key piece of the resultant anxiety nausea. Stress plays a big part in it as well. Fear a future occurrence (anticipatory anxiety) often precedes the attack of nausea. You may spend a significant portion of your time worrying about the unknown. Feeling like you won’t be able to control the outcome can make you anxious to the point of feeling ill.
People experiencing anxiety nausea will create ‘what if’ scenarios of the worst kind that can happen end up disregarding any potential positive outcome (even while hoping that the outcome would be positive). You can blow potential negative occurrences out of proportion and find your mind habitually going over all of the possible painful outcomes of a situation in an effort to defend against them.
Anxiety nausea is an important signal from your body that it is time to get the anxiety handled once and for all. Repeatedly experiencing anxiety nausea can result in dehydration and an increasing sensitivity to worry. Other physical consequences can follow.

Acidophilus is said to be a great remedy for the nausea, which can be purchased over the counter. If you find a supplement helpful, it is wise to keep it on hand at all times. Of course these sorts of solutions are reactive to the anxiety nausea.
A better solution will eliminate the underlying anxiety completely. In doing so the anxiety nausea will inherently be permanently eliminated as well. Many of the more conventional methods to treat the nausea do only that – treat the nausea. The appropriate approach is to treat the anxiety, which is causing the nausea in the first place.
The next time you experience anxiety nausea, apply a cold compress to your neck. Although it is a dead-simple trick, the stimulation will dramatically reduce the nauseas feelings. About 3 cycles of cooling the water down, placing it back on your neck until it warms again will suffice.
