    This type of thing is extremely common. When you're body is so wired all the time from anxiety, you will even start looking for the symptom, even if it has disappeared. If you have determined that the nausea feeling centers around your mouth, then you must focus your attention there. Give it some friendly attention. Say thank you for the fact it is trying to protect you. Take a couple of minutes to do the breathing and the posture tips I posted earlier. Remember, your symptom does not have to go away immediately, just acknowledge it is there.

    When you do this regularly, your nervous system will be less tense and less wired, making you more resilient and reducing the likeliness of such symptoms appearing. Of course, you do have to keep listening to your body and take a bit of time to relax every now and again. Even if it is only 5 minutes.

I was using dry heaving once every few days as a way to relax myself and did it on purpose once or twice instead of letting feeling pass. Then one night at work I had massive fear of confined space and started dry heave like crazy. Then it was like any little thing I better dry heave so I feel good. Then it was like my body thinks it needs it to cope and do stuff. Like my doctor said.. itís just a feeling usually from a negative thought but not a negative situation. The situation isnít the problem. The situations the same since I was a kid. Itís the fear of dry heaving in that situation. So itís a negative thought/fear which contributes to a negative feeling for a usual situation. So I can either tell myself awwww looks itís that feeling I must be thinking about dry heaving ( negative thought) but then tell myself the situation is fine which is a positive thought which gives a positive feeling. Or can just go through it not thinking anything and with exposure it goes down over time. Or like u said, say thank you for feeling which is body way thinking itís helping but I donít need help rite now but thanks anyways. First and third ones combined sounds like good bet. Even sometimes I get feeling drinking water and it tries control me and not let me do things but If I say ď jees this just drinking water, this not negative situation and drink away then it helps. Also my diet isnít good so I added supplements..magnesium, b complex, vitamin d, omega 3 and a multivitamin. I heard mix reviews on vitamin b complex some saying causes anxious but majority says itís good. Also I didnít wanna text friends and read work info lately cause I said it makes me anxious but the work info and friends donít make me anxious.. itís the negative though I give it which produces negative feeling. If I tell myself the situation ( texting friends/work info) isnít bad or depressing then though changed and positive feeling and I do it. That time I had go down to dump to drop off lots garbage. Had big feeling gonna dry heave but held it together and told myself itís not dump itís my negative though taking place about dump. Hope this makes since
    One of the problems we have as anxiety sufferers is that we overthink things. We must always know why. Why do I get this symptom now? Why does it not go away when I try the things the psychologist tells me to? Why can't I stop? Why can't I be like everyone else? These are just examples of the things I used to think about in my own head. I sometimes still get them. Obviously, it caused me to feel so wired all the time. I could be the same thing for you

    Negative thoughts can be extremely persisting (trust me, I had the worst at one point). But even those persisting thoughts are just signs your body is so wired and it needs a break. The thoughts are there to help you, but it often turns out differently. Also, we can tell ourselves certain things to make us feel better, but they will not help unless we believe them. This is why I honestly believe in acknowledging your feelings instead of suppressing them. You do not always need to know why something feels like it does, because the answer is always the same, "My body is too tense right now". Thank your body for helping you, take a confident posture, and slow down your breathing, signalling it is okay for your body to calm down.

    Also, CBT can help greatly with finding the logic in symptoms and to counter them. I did have my own issues with CBT, causing me to "be in my head" too much. So, what worked for me was a combination of CBT logic and simple Mindfulness
