I started getting them when I was in junior high, but basically what happens is I get nervous about something and get this really bad boiling feeling in my stomach/ intestines and it makes me feel like I need to lay down and die. Once the sick feeling hits I go into this crazy panic mode where all I want to do is be in the comforts of my own home where I feel safe from embarresment.
I've seen a doctor about it and we ran different tests to see what it could be from. They did an upper GI and didn't find any ulcers or anything, and then I started taking lactaid because we thought maybe I was lactose intolerant. None of these things helped so I'm lead to the conclusion that its all in my head and I make myself nervous.
I eventually thought I had grown out of it because I only got occaisional "boily stomachs" when I ate something that was too greasy or I was under some kind of pressure but I recently started getting them back again in odd situations like the middle of class or when I'm getting ready to go somewhere.
Has anybody here ever had this problem? What did you do to calm yourself down before the sick feeling hit you???
