Panic attack when I think I might vomit.

I am struggling with an issue where as soon as I notice discomfort in my stomach I have a panic attack thinking I might vomit. I basically start hyperventilating immediately. I am struggling with ideas on how to overcome this. It is starting to effect my life.

I have generalized anxiety disorder and have for many years. This wasn’t an issue when I was younger. I remember being sick and not having a panic attack about it. But for the past 15 or so years this has been a serious problem. Does anyone have any suggestions regarding how to overcome this? It is difficult because it only happens when I think I am going to vomit.

Welcome 🙏 I too suffer from GAD and emetiphobia and panic of the grandchildren or myself have a tummy ache. It is the worst feeling ever. I am never alone with the grandchildren just in case. I have eventually sought help for GAD and when I am ready going to start on the phobia. Mindfulness helps but is hard to start with but eventually by doing it every day it is peaceful If you need to chat just pm me. Jolly
