Does anyone wake up anxious and can’t move on with the day till they vomit?1 year ago
Yes, plenty of people wake up anxious and feel the need to vomit (including several of my clients). About 20% of folks will suffer from an anxiety disorder during their lifetime. Stomach pain, tightness, and vomiting are all common anxiety symptoms.
Having said that, there’s no need to suffer needlessly as anxiety disorders are highly treatable. Reaching out to a competent therapist specializing in anxiety treatment would be a good idea.

I’ve heard about this happening often, especially when a stressful event is coming up. Usually, your flight or fight response is activated with anxiety/ anxiety attacks, and this can cause your body to have negative reactions. One of these reactions is an upset stomach or nausea.
I would highly suggest meditating for at least 5 minutes a day. A good time could be before you go to sleep and when you wake up. Also, give yourself a mental health day to relax: do a face mask, watch your favorite movie, take a walk around your neighborhood, take a nap, etc. Make sure to take care of yourself during your anxious moments.
For nausea, I’d suggest bananas; they relieve stress and are good for upset stomachs.
